Are you looking for Tyres Size for your vehicle?


A vehicle's tyre size determines various crucial factors like maximum speed limit, load index, fuel-efficiency, accelerating properties, braking efficiency, etc. Hence, it is imperative to choose the right sized unit for your vehicle to ensure you can enjoy an uncompromised car handling experience.

In case you are unable to understand the alpha-numeric size code embedded on a tyre's sidewall, come down to Laws Tyres for expert assistance. We will help you chose the best fit of tyres for your car, keeping in mind the manufacturer recommendation and your requirements.

Hazards of using tyres of the wrong size

    • Jeopardised steering stability and braking performance
    • Risk of failing annual MOTs
    • Reduced effective gear ratio
    • Increased risk of tyre-related road accidents
    • Understanding tyre size in detail

For example, let's consider this tyre size: 185/60 R14 82 H

This alpha-numeric code entails a number of key information, like:

Tyre width

The number "185" reflects the width of a tyre and is expressed in millimetres.

Profile height

Number "60" reflects the profile height of the unit with respect to its width and is also known as the aspect ratio.

Type of construction

Letter "R" reflects that this unit has a radial construction. The other available types are bias-belt or diagonal-cross ply, represented by letters B and D, respectively.


Number "14" reflects the rim diameter of this unit and is expressed in inches. This varies significantly with respective vehicle segments and must be chosen carefully.

Speed index

Letter "H "reflects the maximum speed which this unit can sustain, which in this case is 210mph.

Load index

Number "82" represents the maximum load that this unit can carry when it is optimally inflated.
