What is the difference between a 65 and a 70 tire?

A series 65 tire’s height is 65 percent of its width, a series 70 tire’s height is 70 percent of its width and so on. These differences in height affect both performance and safety issues while driving. This tire-size numbering convention is used for automobile, truck and motorcycle tires alike.

How tall is a 70 tire?

The number 70 is the aspect ratio, sometimes called the profile. This is the ratio of the sidewall height to the width. The sidewall height can be calculated by multiplying the ratio (70 or 0.70) by the width (225): 225 millimeters x 0.70 = 157.5 millimeters.

What does 70r on a tire mean?

The number 235 is the cross-section width in millimeters, while 70 is the ratio of sidewall height to cross-section width (70 percent). R means radial-ply construction and 16 is the wheel diameter, in inches.

What is a good aspect ratio for tires?

The aspect ratio is a percentage of the section width. So if you have a 70-series tire, that means the sidewall height is 70 percent of the tire’s overall width. Aspect ratio for most bias ply tires is somewhere around 80 or 90 percent.

How much taller is a 65 tire than a 60?

The 65% aspect ratio (as in 235/65/17), compared to 60%, adds almost 12 mm (1/2″) to the radius of the tire (0.65-0.60)*(235mm)=11.75mm.

Which tire is taller 70 or 75?

I think the 75 series tire is roughly 1″ taller than the 70 series…. so 1/2″ more sidewall… not a lot of difference. The 75 definately “looks” better and might even get ya better mileage as you’re not turning as fast….

What is the difference between a 60 and 65 series tire?

Can I put 60 tires instead of 65?

Physically, yes they will fit. It is recommended to stay within 3% of the original tire size on the car though. The size you have is 3.09% smaller, so not recommended.

What tire sizes are interchangeable?

If you have a vehicle with an alphanumeric size, then to find interchangeable sizes in today’s systems, you need to identify your tire’s aspect ratio. If you have a 78-series alphanumeric tire, it should be replaced with today’s 80 or 75-series tires.

How do you calculate tire size?

You can use our tire size calculator to find the tire size, or you can use a few formulas. sidewall = section width × (60 ÷ 100) diameter = (sidewall × 2) + rim diameter. Thus, the wheel diameter is equal to the section width in inches times the aspect ratio divided by one hundred, times two, plus the rim diameter.

What is the width of tire in inches?

Metric and Inch Tires Sizes. While standard SAE tire sizes are easy to understand (a 35×12.50-16 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).
