How to Read Tire Tread Sizes

Shopping for new tires can be an overwhelming process, especially if this is something you have never done before. Some people realize that when they start the process of shopping around, they don't even know about the different sizing associated with new tires. Basically, the size of a tire is expressed in millimeters and the number reflects the width of that particular tire.

Depending on your type of vehicle and what you are looking for, you will want to find a tire that is sized for your specific make and model.  You may also need to pay attention to the aspect ratio, which explains the relationship between the width of the tire along with how much room there is between the rubber that is beyond the rim.
