All tyres have a tyre code that is used to identify it and this is found on the sidewall of your tyres.
This code serves two main purposes, the first is to identify the size and specification and the second is to confirm the tyre has been tested to approved safety standards.
Your vehicle handbook will confirm your vehicles tyre speed and load ratings as well as any additional requirements.
The tyre coding might look confusing at first but once it’s broken down it’s easy to understand.
The tyre size is made up of several parts, the width of the tyre in millimetres, the profile (percentage of the width), the diameter of the inner rim and the load and speed ratings.
Please see the image below with corresponding legend - which describes the tyre code in detail:
