How to read a tyre size?

For example, if you read 205/55R17 91V, it means:

  • 205 represents the width of the tyre (in millimetres)
  • 55 represents the height in comparison to the width in percentage
  • R is the type of construction (R for radial, D for diagonal and B for belted)
  • 17 is the wheel’s diameter (in inches)
  • 91 is the speed and load rating.
  • V represents the speed index defining the maximum speed at which the tyre can go
