How to calculate tire size suit for your car?

Tires are the only contact point between your car and the road, so it is important to find out what tire size will best suit your needs. Several factors go into making this decision such as:

– Vehicle weight and load  – Luggage space in trunk  – Auto insurance policy  – Tire type  – Terrain of roads you drive on

 

How to find your tire size?

You’ll be able to find the original tire size on a sticker or plate located somewhere inside your car’s driver-side door. The series of numbers will consist of three parts, e.g. 195/65R15. The first number (195) is the tire’s width, 65 is its aspect ratio and finally “R” in front of the third number stands for radial.

 

What do tire size numbers mean?

All tires are marked with a three-digit code that includes information on the tire’s dimensions. We’ll break it down to make it easier to understand:

The first number is the width of your tire. The lower the number, the narrower the tire. This means it’s best for city driving or other situations where you’ll be driving at a slow speed. If you need to carry heavy cargo, opt for wider tires – this will help distribute their weight more evenly and keep them from rolling over.

The second number is the sidewall height made up of two measurements – aspect ratio and diameter. The first one means you divide the tire’s sidewall height by its width. Aspect ratio determines how your car rides, cornering, braking, and fuel economy are all affected by this factor so choosing the right one is important. The lower the aspect ratio number, the more “squat” your car will be. This is why tires with a height of 50 to 60 are good for people who need better acceleration and braking.

The last number (R) stands for radial tire construction which was introduced in 1976. Four years later, it became standard across most manufacturers.
