Are you looking for Tyres Size for your vehicle?

If you are planning to purchase tyres Coventry, you must buy the correct size to experience optimal driving control, comfort and safety.

Tyre size is an alpha-numeric code embossed on a tyre’s sidewall that gives essential information regarding the tyre.

However, decoding this code might be tricky for some. Considering this, you should visit Cross Road MOT and Tyres. We host a team of tyre experts who can explain this alpha-numeric code efficiently and guide you in purchasing an appropriate model for your vehicle.

Decoding tyre size

To understand better, let’s consider the following tyre size: 205/55 R16 91V.

Here are the following components of a tyre size:

205: This is a tyre’s width expressed in millimetres.

55: The number 55 denotes the aspect ratio. It is the height of the tyre sidewall in percentage to its width. Here, this tyre sidewall is 55% of its width.

R: It indicates the model’s construction. R stands for Radial construction. Some other construction types are B which stands for Bias-ply, and D, which denotes a Diagonal construction.

16: This denotes the wheel’s diameter in inches.

V: This is the speed rating. It ranges from A to Z; for this tyre, it is V and stands for a maximum speed of 149mph.

91: It represents the tyre load index, indicating the maximum weight a tyre can withstand when inflated optimally.
