195 45 r16 Tyre Sizing

The 195/45r16 is a popular tyre size choice for hatchbacks and small family cars. RoundTrip Tyres has over 100+ tyres to choose from in this size from brands such as Continental, Hankook, Uniroyal and many more. Our selection of 195 45 r16 tyres range from £35 to £115, so whatever your budget you’re sure to find something that suits, from our online shop.

If you’re finding it difficult to understand which tyre size you need, simply take a look at the tyre sidewall. Tyre manufacturers now use standard sizing across all tyres which can be found on the sidewall.

The first number on the sidewall indicates the width of the tyre in mm. Tyre width is measured from sidewall to sidewall. 195 45 r16 tyres, therefore, have a width of 195mm.

The second figure refers to the “height” of the tyre, also known as the tyre profile. 45mm is one of the smaller tyre profiles among our collection. The smaller height of a tyre helps to improve the braking and cornering ability of your vehicle. However, there are also a number of advantages to a higher tyre profile, for example, 195/55 r16 would benefit from moderately improved fuel efficiency, greater grip and a generally quieter driving experience.

The first letter found on the sidewall tyre indicates the radial tyre structure. Radial structures are the most common tyre structures for a number of reasons including flexibility and strength. These two properties combined mean the tyre can absorb road shocks better.

Lastly, the third number on a 195/45 r16 tyre specifies the diameter of the wheel in inches. This figure must match that of your existing tyres to ensure your new tyre fits the wheel rim.
