Hence we, a responsible tyre retailer and car services provider, are here to help you understand tyre size better, so you make an informed decision while making a purchase.

What is this alphanumeric code?
As the name suggests, it is a combination of several numbers and alphabets which give us information such as the dimension, speed and load-bearing capacity of that specific model. Let us try and understand this better with an example.
Suppose your vehicle requires tyres Burgess Lloc that reads 215/65 R16 98T. This set of numbers, symbols and letters on the sidewall may seem meaningless at first. So, allow us to decode it for you.
The first set of numbers- 215 implies the tyre width from one sidewall to another. Its measuring units are millimetres.
The next set of numbers denotes the aspect ratio or profile ratio, that is, the height of the sidewall as a percentage of the section width. Here 65 means this height is equivalent to 65% of the 215mm width.
The first alphabet reveals the type of construction. In this case, the letter R stands for radial; other types are bias and solid. However, radial is the most common and preferred by several manufacturers as an OE standard.
The third numeric value denotes the rim diameter, measured in inches. In this code, it is 16.
The next set of numbers represents the load index. It indicates the maximum load this tyre model can bear is 98 units, which falls around 750 kg.
'T' represents the maximum speed at which a unit is safe to drive when properly inflated. In this case, it is 118 mph.
