Standard tire sizes

One of the first things you need to know when shopping for tires is the size. There are a few different ways to measure tire size, but the most common method is by diameter. The standard size for a 275 tire is 18 inches.

Passenger car tires

Passenger car tires are designed to carry the weight of a car and its passengers. They come in a variety of sizes, with the most common size being a 275 tire.

A 275 tire is a common size for passenger cars. It is also a popular size for SUVs, crossovers, and vans. The 275 tire size is available in both traditional and radial designs. The width of the tire is important when choosing a 275 tire. The width of the tire affects the grip, handling, and braking of the vehicle. A wider tire will have better grip and handling but poorer braking. A narrower tire will have poorer grip and handling but better braking.

The type of terrain you will be driving on will also affect your choice of tires. If you plan on driving off-road, you will need a different type of tire than if you plan on driving on the highway.

Light truck tires

There are a wide range of light truck tires on the market, and the size you need will depend on the make and model of your vehicle, as well as your driving needs. Some of the most popular sizes for light trucks include:


Metric tire sizes

Passenger car tires

Passenger car tires are described using metric tire codes, which tell you the tire’s width, height, aspect ratio, construction type (bias or radial), and wheel diameter.

P-metric tires have a “P” at the beginning of the code, followed by the width (in millimeters), aspect ratio, construction type, and wheel diameter. The width is always listed first in metric sizing. For example, a P215/65R15 tire has a width of 215 mm, a height of 65% of the width (140 mm), is a radial tire designed for rims 15 inches in diameter, and has an inner diameter of 6.5 inches (15-inch rim).

A metric template showing all aspects of tire sizing can be found below:

Light truck tires

Light truck tires are used on vehicles such as pickups, vans and SUVs. They’re designed to carry heavy loads and provide good traction in off-road conditions. Most light truck tires are all-season tires, which means they’re designed to provide good performance in a variety of weather conditions, including snow and ice.

There are three main types of light truck tires: passenger tires, light truck all-terrain tires and light truck mud-terrain tires. Passenger tires are the most common type of light truck tire. They’re designed for everyday driving on paved roads and highways. Light truck all-terrain tires are a good choice if you need a tire that can handle off-road conditions but still provides a smooth ride on paved roads. Light truck mud-terrain tires are the best choice for serious off-roading, but they can be noisy on paved roads.

When choosing light truck tires, it’s important to consider the size of the vehicle and the type of driving you’ll be doing. For example, if you have a large SUV that you use for hauling heavy loads, you’ll need a different tire than someone who has a small pickup that they use for commuting. If you do a lot of off-roading, you’ll need a different tire than someone who only drives on paved roads.

The most common metric tire sizes for light trucks are 275/60R20, 275/55R20 and 285/55R20. These sizes will fit most light trucks, but it’s always best to check your owner’s manual or with the manufacturer to be sure.

Other tire sizes

P275/60R15 is a common tire size for passenger vehicles sold in the United States. The number 275 is the width of the tire in millimeters. The letter “R” stands for “radial,” which is the type of tire it is. The number 15 is the diameter of the wheel in inches.

Motorcycle tires

Motorcycle tires are available in a wide variety of sizes. The following list includes some of the most common sizes.


Bicycle tires

Bicycle tires come in a bewildering variety of sizes. To make matters worse, in the early days of road cycling, everyone used different systems to measure widths.

The good news is that things have settled down somewhat, and now there are only two main systems in use: the European system, which uses millimeters (mm), and the American system, which uses inches. The bad news is that even with these two systems, things can still be a bit confusing.

For example, a tire measuring 27 x 1-1/4 inches would be considered a “narrow” road tire under the old system, but it would be considered a “medium” width under the new system. And a tire measuring 700C x 23mm would be considered a “medium” width under the old system and a “wide” width under the new one.

To make things even more confusing, some manufacturers mix and match systems. For example, you might see a tire listed as 700C x 23-25mm. This means that it has an outside diameter of 700mm (28 inches) and an width of 23-25mm.

The best way to determine the correct size for your bike is to consult your owner’s manual or visit your local bike shop.
