Reading Your Tires Doesn’t Have To Be Tough

January 31st, 2018 by

Many people have trouble figuring out what type of tires their car needs when they have to be replaced. That is why we here at Westpointe Chrysler Jeep Dodge in Yukon, OH are here to help you out! The first letter you see is probably a “P” meaning this is a tire for a passenger vehicle.

Reading Tires

The second three digit number is the width of the tire in millimeters. After the slash you will see the aspect ratio of the tire’s height to width as a percent meaning 70 would be a 70% aspect ratio. “R” means you have radial tires which are some of the most common on the road today.

The last two digit number you see is the diameter of the tire in inches. If you have any more questions about your tires or need a service center to order and replace a set for you feel free to give us a call at Westpointe Chrysler Jeep Dodge in Yukon, OH today to set up an appointment!
