If you look on the sidewall of your tyre, you will see the relevant markings there. When calling or emailing us for a quote, we will need this information, including the load & speed ratings. An example of tyre size would be:
205 is the width of the tyre in millimetres.
55 is an aspect ratio & indicates the height of the sidewall.
R means ‘Radial’ – all modern cars are on Radial tyres now, not Cross-Ply.
16 is the diameter of your wheel in inches.
91 this is a coding which relates to the maximum load the tyre will safely take.
W this indicates the maximum speed the tyre can safely achieve. Speed Ratings can be a little misleading, because no car in the UK is allowed to go over 70MPH, but nearly all Speed Ratings are over 100MPH. Tyres are designed this way to handle the increasing power & torque of modern cars.
