There was a time when an alphanumeric code was used for representing a tyre. That’s when radial tires didn’t exist, which when hit the markets made the then-existing coding procedure irrelevant and inadequate.
Present-day code looks like 130/90 – 16 67 H, in which;
130 – represents the section width.
It is defined as the width of the tyre measured in a straight line side to side, usually a three-digit number.
90 – represents the aspect width.
It is defined as the ratio of tire width expressed as a percentage to the height of the tire. No use even if you by heart this. Just keep in mind that larger the tire, taller is the tire.
16 – represents the rim diameter.
It is the longest measurement across the rim from one end to another.
67 – represents the load rating.
It is generally a number from the 20s to 80s denotes the designed weight that the tire can actually bear. Bigger the number larger is the bearing capacity.
H – speed rating.
It is designating the designed speed at which the tire can run safely when loaded.
