The Sizing Code On Your Tires Is Easier To Read Than You Might Think

The sizing code on the sidewalls of your tires provides some critical pieces of information. That is, if you know how to read it. Which many people actually don't. But when it comes time to replace your tires, being able to read this code can be very beneficial.

To give an example of how this code breaks down, a tire size code that reads P215/55R17 translates to:
  • P - Passenger vehicle type of tire.
  • 215 - Tire width. This particular tire would be 215 millimeters wide.
  • 55 - Aspect ratio. The height of this tire would be 55% of its width.
  • R - Radial construction.
  • 17 - Wheel diameter. This tire would fit on a 17" wheel.
So as you can see, once the code is broken down, it really isn't all that confusing. If you have any more tire sizing related questions, then call or visit the service center here at Frank Fletcher Honda in Bentonville.
