How to Read the Tires on Your Car

Do you need new tires for your vehicle? Is it ever confusing to you just to read what size your tires are? Luckily, we here at Audi Livermore of Livermore, CA are here to give you the basics on reading and understanding your tires.

The "P" at the beginning means it is meant for a passenger vehicle. The next three numbers after this indicate the width of the tire in millimeters. After the backslash is the aspect ratio which compares the height to the width of the tire read as a percent. The "R" after this means you have radial tires while the final number indicates the diameter of the tires read in inches.

If you are looking for a team of specialists to both order and install your next set of tires then be sure to give us a call or stop by our service center here at Audi Livermore in Livermore, CA at your earliest convenience!
