Tire Type: The first letter in the code tells you the tire class. The class indicates what kind of car the tire is designed for.

P – Means the tire is made for Passenger Cars – Cars, SUV’s, Minivans and Small Pickup Trucks

LT – Is for Light Truck – Trucks that have a 3/4 ton or one ton load capacity

ST – Is for Special Trailers – Boat Trailers or Utility Trailers

Tire Width: After the first letter/letters there is a set of three digits, this is the width of the tire’s tread path in millimeters

Tire Aspect Ratio: Next is a forward slash and a number. This number is an aspect ratio. The higher the number, the taller the tire sidewall/profile is. The ratio is a percentage. For example if the aspect ratio is 65 that means that the sidewall is 65% of the width of the tire.

R is for Radial Tire which is the industry standard for most passenger cars. The letter D is for Diagonal Plies. These tires are used on some motorcycles and trailer tires.

Tire Wheel Diameter: The next set of digits is the Wheel Diameter in inches, this measures how wide the tire is across the center. So you know what size wheel will fit inside the tire.

Tire Load Index: The next set of numbers is the tire load index, this means how much the tire can support.
