Understanding the Tire Sizes Your Vehicle Needs

When you're in Etobicoke, ON, and need a new tire, you need to know what your tire size is. There are many different sizes based on the type of vehicle you drive. There are numbers imprinted or painted on the side of the tire. Each number means something different. The "P" at the beginning simply means that it is a tire for a passenger vehicle.

The three-digit number after the "P" is the tire width in millimeters. The two-digit number after the slash is the aspect ratio. Then, the number after the R is the wheel diameter. For example, a printed 18 is a wheel diameter of 18 inches.

By visiting our service center at Westend Hyundai, we can identify your tire size and help you with a replacement or any other tire care that might be needed for your vehicle.
