How to Read a Tire Size
It’s simple to understand what all of the letters and numbers on your tire’s sidewall mean with a little explanation. The numbers correspond to the tire’s size, width, and performance. For example,
Note: 235 refers to the width, 35R is profile, The 18 at the end is size.
After the aspect ratio comes a letter that indicates the type of internal construction maintaining your tire’s stability: 225/70R16.
There are two types of construction that you may see on the sidewall of a tire:
R – Radial
D – Diagonal or Bias Ply
Radial tires represent the vast majority of tires on the road in the United States today; thus “R” will usually be shown in the tire size designation. Radial construction means the tire’s internal ply cords are oriented in a radial direction, from one bead over to the other, essentially perpendicular to the axis of rotation.
