What does the tyre size mean?
The alphanumeric tyre size code covers several important aspects related to rim diameter, load index, speed limit, etc.
Below is an example we think may help:
205/60 R15 91 V
- The first three numbers 205 reflect the section width of the tyre.
- 60 indicate the height of the tyre. It is also known as aspect ratio and is measured in percentage with respect to the width.
- Letter ‘R’ reflects the type of tyre construction used to build the tyre. In this case, the tyre has a radial construction.
- The last numbers, 15 indicates the diameter of the rim, measured in inches.
- ‘91’ reflects the load index, and therefore, shows the maximum load capacity that this tyre can carry.
- ‘V’ indicates the maximum speed limit of this tyre.
