Understanding Tire Size
When buying tires, it’s important to understand that tires come in many different sizes. The correct tire size determine the tire’s performance, suitability, and overall appropriateness for your driving needs. It is recommended that you check your owner’s manual or ask one of our tire professionals to understand what size of tires are correct for your vehicle. The following information about your tire’s size and type may be found on its sidewall:
Type of Tire
The letter or letters at the beginning (or end) of this sequence will let you know the type of tire: P, LT, ST, or T. Most tires will have the letter P, which is short for “P-metric” or a passenger car type tire. These are typically installed on passenger cars, light trucks, SUVs, and vans. An LT appearing at either the beginning or the end of the sequence indicates the tire is a “light truck” tire. This means the tire is designed to be used on vehicles that carry high loads or pull heavy trailers. ST indicates a “special trailer” tire, used on (you guessed it) – trailers, while “T” denotes a “temporary” tire, like a “donut spare” you might find in the trunk of your vehicle.
The first set of numbers in the sequence is the width of your tire. This width is measured in millimeters across the tread area from sidewall to sidewall.
Next you will find a slash and then another set of numbers: the aspect ratio, sometimes called the tire’s “profile”. This number is a percentage that indicates the tire’s height vs. its width. A lower aspect ratio often means a sportier, more performance-oriented tire. On the other hand, a higher aspect ratio tends to indicate the tire was designed for other priorities like comfort or rugged durability.
Following the aspect ration, you will find a single letter, either a “D”, a “B”, or an “R” which indicates the construction type for the tire. “R” indicates that the tire is a Radial tire and “D” designates that it is a Diagonal (also known as “Bias”) ply tire and “B” means it is a Belted-Bias ply tire. Today, tires featuring Radial construction are by far the most common because of their superior fuel economy, traction, ride comfort and especially tread life when compared to earlier types of construction.
Finally, the remaining number in the set indicates the rim diameter—sometimes also noted as the wheel diameter. This measurement is almost always given in inches. Though there are exceptions, rim diameters ranging from 13” to 22” are most common for passenger vehicles in North America.

" As I was traveling through Georgia, D&R was highly recommend when I needed an oil change. D&R staff alerted me to a bulge in one of my tires and saved me from a disaster happening on my trip. The staff was professional and courteous and replaced my tire quickly and efficiently so I could continue my trip, even though they were very busy. Thank you D&R for all you did. "
