Tire size terminology

Understanding tire size terminology is essential when selecting the appropriate tires for your vehicle. Here’s a breakdown of the key terms you’ll encounter when reading a tire’s size:

  1. Tire Type: The first letter of the tire size indicates the type of tire. For example, “P” stands for “P-Metric” or “Passenger” tires, which are commonly used on passenger cars, SUVs, and light trucks. “LT” stands for “Light Truck” and is designed for heavier loads and towing capacity.
  2. Section Width: This is the first set of numbers in the tire size and represents the tire’s width in millimeters from sidewall to sidewall. For example, in a tire size P225/60R16, “225” is the section width.
  3. Aspect Ratio: The second set of numbers in the tire size is the aspect ratio, which indicates the tire’s sidewall height as a percentage of its width. In the example P225/60R16, “60” is the aspect ratio, meaning the sidewall height is 60% of the tire’s width.
  4. Construction: The letter following the aspect ratio indicates the tire’s internal construction. “R” stands for “Radial,” which is the most common type of tire construction, where the layers run radially across the tire.
  5. Rim Diameter: The final set of numbers in the tire size represents the wheel diameter in inches that the tire is designed to fit. In the example P225/60R16, “16” is the rim diameter.
  6. Load Index: This number, typically found after the tire size, indicates the maximum weight the tire can support when properly inflated. The higher the number, the greater the tire’s load-carrying capacity.
  7. Speed Rating: The speed rating, usually represented by a letter, denotes the maximum speed at which a tire can safely carry a load. Some common speed ratings are “S” (112 mph), “T” (118 mph), “H” (130 mph), “V” (149 mph), and “Z” (149+ mph).

By understanding these tire size terminologies, you can make informed decisions about the best tire size for your Jeep Wrangler or any other vehicle.
