Understanding tyre sizes for your vehicle
The numbers and letters on the side of a tyre can seem like Egyptian hieroglyphics but each and every part has a particular meaning that is essential to you getting the correct tyre on your vehicle ensuring that the driving characteristics are retained and that you remain safe and legal.
Is it important to get the correct size?
It is incredibly important to get all of these factors right when replacing your tyres, in some cases it could mean an MOT failure. When choosing your tyres our best advice is to check the ACTUAL tyres on your vehicle and not to rely on either the vehicles’ handbook or a registration number checker on some websites, as vehicle manufacturers or previous owners may have changed the specification on ‘your’ car.
