Understanding tyre specifications
The way tyre specifications are written, especially on sidewalls, can vary but you should be able to make out which number and code letter relates to what. Using 205-55-R16 as the example, the "205" denotes the tyre width in millimetres, "55" is the "aspect ratio" which is the depth of the sidewall rubber as a percentage of the width, "R" means the tyre has a radial structure (most modern tyres do) and "16" is the diameter of the wheel rim the tyres fit onto in inches. Tyres must also be matched to the vehicle's weight and maximum speed, so also look for a "Load Index" number and a "Speed Rating" letter.
205/55/R16 tyre pressure
Correct inflation pressures are NOT stamped on your sidewalls because they depend on the characteristics of your vehicle more than the tyre. Check with your manual or look for a list provided near the petrol cap or inside a door jamb. If you are in any doubt, your easiest option is always to contact your local Protyre garage.
