Tire Guide and Tips: Understanding Your Tire

For example, the number may read P225/70-R15, 89H:

P = Passenger Tire (LT = Light Truck)

– 225 = Overall width of the tire in millimeters
– 70 = Sidewall height (distance from rim to tread) as a percentage of the tread width (known as aspect ratio)
– R = Tire construction, this one is Radial (also, B = Belted Bias, D = Diagonal Bias
– 15 = Represents the size of the wheel in inches
– In this example, the tire has the number 89H. This is the weight capacity of the tire. However, in most cases, you will not see this heading on the sidewall.
– The V and Z rated tires have excellent dry pavement grip/traction but due to their soft rubber compounds, do not have a long life.
A tread rating indicates how long a tire should last. This figure is written in small letters on the sidewall of your tire. The higher the number, the longer the tire should last. 100 is the basic tread wear rating.
– The traction rating works just like grading – ‘A’ being the best, ‘B’ is good, and ‘C’ is acceptable. This number is also found on the sidewall.
– Temperature ratings work the same – ‘A’ best, ‘B’ good, ‘C’ acceptable. If you drive your car very hard, you want a temperature rating of ‘A’ because a ‘C’ would fail faster under these conditions. Again, look for this number on the sidewall.

POPULAR QUESTIONS

  • How important is wheel alignment?

    Research indicates that the average car is driven about 12,000 miles per year. A car with toe alignment just 0.34 degrees (Just 0.17 inches) out of specification has dragged its tires sideways for more than 68 miles by the end of the year!

  • What are the symptoms of a car that's out of alignment?

    – Excessive or uneven tire wear.
    – Steering wheel pulls to the left or right.
    – Feeling of looseness or wandering.
    – Steering wheel vibration or shimmy.
    – Steering wheel is not centered when car is moving straight ahead.

  • How do tire warranties work?

    Workmanship and materials warranty. This warranty covers the tires for five to six years from the date of purchase, and protects you from issues or defects that stem from the manufacturing process or materials used to make the tire.
