Q: How do I get my tyre size or how do I read my tyre's sidewall?

There are multiple ways to get your tyre size or to find out what the right tyre for your car is. Choose one of the answers below to determine what's best for you.

A: The Right Tyre For Your Car - Your correct tyre size and tyre pressure can be found in your vehicle’s owners’ manual in the glove compartment or on the OEM sticker on your driver’s side door.

A: Tyre Size - OEM stands for Original Equipment Manufacturer. Quite simply, these are the tyre specs that originally came with your vehicle, according to the manufacturer's specifications and requirements. It includes the tyre size, rim size, the aspect ratio etc.

How do I read my tyre's sidewall?

A: Tyre Brand
This is the brand or manufacturer of your tyre. 

A: Tyre Pattern Name
The tyre pattern name is the model or name designated to a particular tyre - this information is usually found after the manufacturer's name on the sidewall.
 

A: Tyre Type 
This designates the type of vehicle the tyre fits. P is for passenger metric. Other letters are LT (for light truck), T (for temporary spare) and ST (for special trailers). If your tyre has no letter, it signifies that your tyre is a euro "metric" size.

A: Tyre Width
The width of your tyre from sidewall to sidewall. In this example the width of the tyre is 225mm. 

A: Tyre Aspect Ratio
This identifies the tyre's aspect ratio, which is the relationship of the tyre's sidewall height to the tyre's width. In this example, the sidewall height of the tyre is 55% of its width. The lower the ratio, the smaller the sidewall height, which means better cornering, but a rougher ride.

A: Tyre Construction
This is the tyre's internal construction, which is "radial." Almost every tyre on the road has radial construction, which means the cords of the carcass plies inside the tyre "radiate" directly across from one side of the tyre to the other. Other letters used are D, for diagonal construction, and B, for belted.
