Decode Your Tires

Have you ever wondered what all the numbers and letters on the side of your tires mean? That is why we here at Gilroy Hyundai want to be sure that you understand the basics of decoding your tires when you begin your search for new tires at our Hyundai parts shop.

The first letter you see will more than likely be a "P," meaning this tire is meant for a passenger vehicle. The next number you see is the width of the tire in millimeters. The next two numbers are the aspect ratio. This is the ratio of the tire's height to its width as a percent. The "R" you most likely see next stands for radial, and the number after this is the diameter in inches.

If you have any further questions or are unsure about what type of tires you need, be sure to give us a call or stop on by our Hyundai service department in Gilroy, CA and we will be happy to order them for you.
