How to read your tire size:
One the sidewall of every tyre is a sequence of 3 numbers as explained below..
Example: 235 45 R17
235 is the width of the tyre in millimetres.
45 is the aspect ratio or tyre profile.
R means it is radial construction.
17 is the diameter of the wheel rim in inches.
To find your tyre size, it’s actually pretty straight forward. There’s three numbers you’re going to be looking for.
The first one is the width. In this case it’s 235 millimetres. The second one is the profile, which is the percentage of the width. In this case it’s a 45. The final one you’re looking for is the diameter. In this case it’s 17 inch.
