Keep reading to learn how to find out more about tyre specifications, including your car’s ideal tyre size, and how to read what that tyre size should be.
WHERE TO FIND YOUR TYRE SIZE
The first port of call for reading your tyre size should be your vehicle’s owner manual. This manual should have all the specifications you require to make an informed tyre decision.
Alternatively, tyres have a code system moulded into their sidewall. This allows you to understand their technical capabilities, so you drive appropriately depending on the type of tyre you currently have. It will also help you better determine what tyre you need to replace it with should it be time to switch.
