But before you make your purchase, it is important that you are aware of the tyre size meaning.

How to Understand a Tyre Size Code?

Let's take 205/55 R17 91V as an example.

  • The first number, "205" here, denotes the tyre's width in millimetres, meaning the tyre’s width is 205mm.
  • Following that is “55”, informing car owners about the height of the tyre’s sidewall.
  • The letter after that denotes the tyre construction type. In this case, it is R for radial.
  • Next, the number “17” is a vital aspect of this tyre as it represents its rim diameter. The measurement unit here is in inches, meaning this tyre has a wheel rim diameter of 17 inches.
  • The next number, "91", indicates the load index, that is, the amount of load it can handle without dropping its performance when inflated optimally.
  • The letter "V" at the end represents its speed rating index or how much speed it can run at safely.
