## Metric and Inch Tires Sizes

While standard SAE tire sizes are easy to understand (a 35x12.50-16 tire runs 35 inches tall by 12.5 inches wide for a 16 inch wheel), many popular tires, particularly those under 35" tall, use harder to visualize metric dimensions (a 315/75R16 tire is 315 mm wide with a sidewall height that is 75% of the width for a 16 inch wheel). Converting a metric tire to inches can be done with the equation below, however, the above calculator is much easier!

 /  R  = [ (Tire Width x Aspect Ratio x 2) / 2550 + Wheel Diameter ] x [ Tire Width / 25.4 ] - [ Wheel Diameter ] =  x [12.4] -

## Helpful Tire Size Tips

• If upgrading to larger tires, use our gear ratio calculator to find your recommended gear ratio.
• Tire width is the maximum width of the tire which is usually at the sidewall of an inflated tire.
• Tread width is the actual width of the tire tread (which is normally less than the tire width).
• An "LT" after the tire size indicates that the tire is designed for "Light Truck" use.
