How can I tell what size a tyre is?


Tyres sizes can be found on the tyre label and are defined by a number of variables; an example of which could be:

385/65 R22.5 160K

  • 385: Width of the tyre in millimeters.
  • 65: Aspect ratio, meaning the sidewall height is 65% of the tyre's width.
  • R: Tyre construction (Radial in this case).
  • 22.5: Diameter of the rim the tyre fits in inches.
  • 160: Load index, indicating the maximum weight the tyre can carry (see load index charts online).
  • K: Speed rating, indicating the maximum sustained speed the tyre can handle (see speed rating charts online).
