The easiest place to find your tyre size is on the tyre itself. This will tell you the exact specifications of the fitted tyre, which you can compare to your vehicle’s handbook to ensure the correct tyre is fitted at all times.
As an example, a tyre might read P205/65 R14 102H. The ‘P205’ stands for the width of tyre in millimetres, in this case, 205. The second number, ‘65’, confirms the height in a percentage of the full tyre width. So, the height of this tyre is 65% of the width of the tyre. The ‘R’ stands for the type of tyre – radial, the most common type of tyre. It could also be a B (bias belt) or D (diagonal) and the ‘14’ stands for the measurement of the wheel rim diameter, in inches. The ‘102’ is the load index, and the ‘H’ is the tyre’s speed rating. Load index is the maximum carrying capacity which each tyre can bear safely, and the speed rating is the fastest top speed the tyre can safely maintain.
