Understand your tyres
P – Passenger car tyre. If there is no P before the size it would indicate it is a European metric tyre. An LT before the size would designate a light truck tyre.

205 – This is the Section Width in mm. This measurement is taken from sidewall to sidewall.

65 – This number refers to the height of the sidewall, or the Aspect Ratio. It is a percentage of the section width. In this example, you would take 65% of 205mm and this would give you the sidewall height.

R – Radial tyre construction.

15 – Wheel diameter in inches.

H – The speed rating for your tyre.
