You can see a tyre’s size as an alphanumeric code embedded on its sidewall.
Let's take a sample size to get a clear interpretation of it: 235/55 R17 99W
We will explain below what each number and letter of this tyre size denotes:
235 – These numbers represent the tyre's width in millimetres. In this case, it is 235 mm.
55 – 55 is the aspect ratio. It is the height of the tyre sidewall with respect to the tyre width in percentage.
R – R denotes the Radial tyre construction type.
17 – The next number on this code denotes this tyre's rim diameter in inches.
99 – This is the load index that signifies the load-bearing capacity of the model in question. Here it is 99, which denotes this car can carry loads up to 1709 lbs.
W – The last letter denotes the speed index. Here, it is W which means this tyre can withstand a maximum speed of 168 mph.
