For people not used to the buying of used tyres, the thought of needing to know what tyre size you need from the 100’s that exist might be a daunting experience.
Some can find it a hard to find but it’s quite simple. The simplest way to discover your current tyre size is actually to look at your tyres which are currently fitted. All the details you’ll need are shown on the sidewall of the tyres.
Primarily the combination of characters and digits on the tyres sidewall can appear confusing, nonetheless when you understand just what each one means it will be simple and easy to understand.
Essentially, there are usually 4 to 5 sidewall markings. In most cases there will be 4. But sometimes there may be up to 5 for special tyres or commercial tyres.
