Rim width and tire width are two closely related sizes. Flexible tire sidewalls alow a single tire size to be mounted on a rim of various widths.
* 160/60-17 will fit 17x5.5 rim on Metzeler Sport Tire, all other 160/60-17 will fit on rim 4.25-5.00 in wide ** Only 180/60-17 Dunlop GT502 , Pirelli Night Dragon and Michelin Scorcher 31 tire fits on 17x4.5 rim
Rim/Wheel Widths Each tire has a specific rim width range on which the tire can be mounted. Failure to follow rim width recommendations may result in poor tire performance or possible wheel and/or tire failure.
Automobile tires are described by an alphanumeric tire code (in American English and Canadian English) or tyre code (in British English, Australian English and others), which is generally molded (or moulded) into the sidewall of the tire. This code specifies the dimensions of the tire, and some of its key limitations, such as load-bearing ability, and maximum speed.
Alpha numeric tire sizes were introduced as Original Equipment in the late 60s and became widely used in the early 70s. These tires were identified with a letter which indicated the tire's load capacity, followed by an "R" if radial ply construction, the tire's aspect ratio and wheel diameter.
1010tires.com Tire Size calculator. Use our tire calculator to compare tire sizes based on tire diameter, radius, sidewall height, circumference, revs per mile and speedometer difference.
The values shown are calculated measurements based on the p-metric formula. Actual advertised tire height and tread width will vary from manufacturer to manufacturer for specific p-metric tire sizes.
These codes are typical for Harleys but can be for any tire. The codes do not go beyond 150mm in width. With these tires, the first number of the tire size is not the actual width, it is just a number.
Finally. A massive tire size chart with both metric and inch tire sizes listed to easily compare every tire size in one spot. Here are two tire size charts that list every tire by wheel size or by diameter to make your search as simple as possible.
Calculating Tire Dimensions. Modern metric tire dimensions Example...185/60R14 85H or 185/60HR14. The first number is the width of the tire in millimeters, measured from sidewall to sidewall.
