How To Read Your Tyres

The size of a tyre is on the sidewall of the tyre. Youโ€™ll see a series of numbers and letters, such as 205 / 45 / R17 / 91V.
This is your tyre size, each number means the following:
  • 205 โ€“ Tyres width in millimetres
  • 45 โ€“ Sidewall height (%of the width)
  • R17 โ€“ Diameter of the tyreโ€™s inner rim (inches)
  • 91 โ€“ Load Rating
  • V โ€“ Indicates the maximum speed for the tyre when at full load (Known as the speed rating)
Tyres Kilmarnock
There are a few checks that you can do to ensure your vehicle is safe on the roads and slippery, wet surfaces, and can grip the surface well:

Depth of tyre tread

Inadequate tread depth can compromise braking performance, reducing your safety on the road. Therefore we would advise having your car tyres checked regularly to ensure your well-being whilst driving.

Tyre pressure

Having the correct pressure in your tyres both optimises your performance and increases your safety. Having inadequate tyre pressure decreases your grip and can significantly increase your fuel consumption.

Checking tread for stones or other foreign bodies

Removing any stones or objects from the tread and checking for any early warning signs are all great ways to prevent premature tyre wear.

Tyre valves tightened

All valves must be tightened. The loss of air pressure can cause the tyre to run hot or go flat โ€“ A low-pressure tyre can be extremely dangerous on the road.

General tyre wear

It is advisable to regularly have your car checked for any general wear that may occur on a day-to-day basis. What might be a very small problem can develop into a much more serious issue if ignored.
