Discovering the right tyre for you can be a confusing and complicated task, especially if you don’t know where to look. Luckily, tyre manufacturers are now obligated to use the same sizing standards making it easier for you. On the sidewall of all tyres, you’ll find markings clearly indicating the sizes related to that tyre.

You’ll usually find the following information on the sidewall of tyres:

The first number indicates the width of the tyre in mm, 195mm in this instance. For example, 205/55r16 would have a greater width whilst 175/65r14 would have a lesser width than our selection of 195x60x15 tyres.

The second number refers to the height of the tyre wall in mm, 60mm in this instance. Tyre “height” can also be referred to as the tyre profile. The lower the number, the lower the tyre profile, for example, 195/55r15 has a lower tyre profile and thus less height than the 195/60 15 tyres above and vice versa.

The first letter relates to the construction of the tyre, radial in this instance. Radial tyres have a specific design whereby the cord plies are arranged at a 90-degree angle to the direction of travel, radially. Radial tyres are by far the most common tyres for a number of reasons, including reduced fuel consumption, a softer ride and ability to travel at higher speeds for greater distances.

The third number indicates the diameter of the wheel in inches, 15 inches in this instance. As this figure refers to the size of the wheel rim to which your tyre should be fitted it is crucial your new tyre matches that of the tyre currently fitted on your car.

If you’re not sure if this is the right size of tyre for your car, take a look at our selection of 15 inch car tyres to see our full range of 15” sizes.
