The Skills to Read Tire Ratings and Sizes

When your vehicle is ready for new tires, knowing how to read and understand the ratings on your options can help you make an informed decision on which tires are best for your driving habits and vehicle. The first number to pay attention to is the wheel diameter that the tire will fit. This measurement is made in inches.

For those vehicles that move heavy loads, choosing tires with a high load index is important. Tires designed for light trucks will be marked with an LT, which those made for passenger vehicles will have a P. Each tire is also marked with a speed rating.
