TYRES

 

Don't wait until your tread has been worn completely from the surface of your tyres before you get around to replacing them. This is commonly known as "bald" tyres and is a very dangerous condition.

 

Tyres are generally rated to last a set amount of miles when you buy them. However other factors can reduce the service life of your tyres, such as driving conditions and habits. Understanding the markings on the sidewalls of your car tyres will help you choose the right replacements for your car. The letters and numbers on the side of your car tyres relate to their size, dimensions, composition and capabilities.

 

Here's what each section of the code means, using the tyre size and specification 175/65 R14T as an example:

 

  • 175 Tyre width in mm

  • 65 Tyre sidewall profile ñ sidewall height expressed as a percentage of its width

  • R Radial (rather than a cross ply)

  • 14 Diameter of the wheel rim, in inches

  • T Speed rating which must match or exceed the maximum speed of your car.

 

 

Car tyre speed ratings:

 

  • S 180km/h or 112mph

  • T 190km/h or 118mph

  • U 200km/h or 125mph

  • H 210km/h or 130mph

  • V 240km/h or 149mph

  • W(ZR) 270km/h or 168mph

  • Y(ZR) 300km/h or 186mph

  • ZR Above 240km/h or 149mph

 

Run-flat tyres are increasingly popular. If you have a puncture on your journey, a run-flat tyre supports the vehicle weight so you can travel for another 50 miles or so, at a maximum speed of 50mph.
