P235/75R15, Oh My

It's common to be confused about the numbers on your tires, but we're here to help. Tires are sized differently based on the type of vehicle. When you need new tires, the tire size needs to be read. Numbers are printed on the size of the tire, identifying various details. If you look, the "P" is for a passenger vehicle while the three digits that follow identify the width of the tire in millimeters.

The next number, which is two digits and after the slash, is the aspect ratio. Following that is "R" for radial construction and then another two digits, which represents the diameter of the wheel in inches.

Often, at Woodhouse Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM FIAT, we will ask for the size of the tire when you're making an appointment for a tire rotation or to purchase new tires. It will allow us to have everything ready when you come in to see us in Sioux City.
