How to find your tyre size.

The information is on the sidewalls of your existing tyres. It looks something like 205/55 R16 84 V.(this can be different for each car). Having this information will make the selection for your next set of tyres a lot quicker and easier.

Information about tyre size

 Width 205/55R16 84v. This is the Width of your tyre in mm.

Aspect Ratio 205/55R16 84v. The Aspect ratio or profile is the height of the tyre from the rim to the tread area. It’s shown as a percentage of the tread width. In this case the “height” of the tyre is 55% of the width.

Radial 205/55R16 84v. R is for Radial and tells us the “construction type” of the tyre. It is less important these days as all car tyres are radial. Many years ago we had “bias ply” or “cross ply” constructions as well and they needed to be able to identify the different types of tyre since they could not be mixed on the same axle. If there is no ‘R’, the tyre is not a radial.

Rim Diameter 205/55R16 84v. This is the diameter of the rim that the tyre can be fitted to. Internationally rim sizes are still measured and quoted in inches.

Load Rating 205/55R16 84v. A type of shorthand or scale used to describe the load carrying capacity of each tyre is. See load rating table. The higher the number, the more load the tyre can carry at a higher pressure. See load rating index.

Speed Rating 205/55R16 84v. The speed symbol indicates the maximum speed the tyre is capable of running. In the case of a V rated tyre its 240kph. While it may seem excessive having such high speed ratings on tyres in Australia these ratings come almost as a “by product” of more highly developed tyres. A higher speed rating generally improves the tyre’s ability to withstand heat (eg. driving long distances in hot conditions).
