Tires are easy to forget about, even though they're essential. At Aurora Chrysler, we want you to have tires that fit correctly and perform optimally. The following information will help you decipher the many size markings on a tire.
There are many letters and numbers on tires. The section width tread, expressed in millimeters, is the distance between the sidewalls of the tire. The wheel diameter, written in inches, is the diameter of the wheel needed to fit the tire.
The aspect ratio is a numerical comparison of the sidewall height with the section width tread of the tire. A tire with a lower aspect ratio will typically be more responsive to steering than a tire with a larger aspect ratio. If you have questions or would like some assistance ordering the right tires for your vehicle, visit us the next time you're in Aurora, ON.
