View Here : Tire To Wheel Width Chart
Rim width and tire width are two closely related sizes. Flexible tire sidewalls alow a single tire size to be mounted on a rim of various widths.
Inch-based designations sometimes express the width in a decimal (26 x 1.75) and sometimes as a common fraction (26 x 1 3/4). This is the most common cause of mismatches. Although these size designations are mathematically equal, they refer to different size tires, which are NOT interchangeable.
Use this table to determine the tire size that can fit your rim.
Rim/Wheel Widths Each tire has a specific rim width range on which the tire can be mounted. Failure to follow rim width recommendations may result in poor tire performance or possible wheel and/or tire failure.
Automobile tires are described by an alphanumeric tire code (in American English and Canadian English) or tyre code (in British English, Australian English and others), which is generally molded (or moulded) into the sidewall of the tire. This code specifies the dimensions of the tire, and some of its key limitations, such as load-bearing ability, and maximum speed.
Alpha numeric tire sizes were introduced as Original Equipment in the late 60s and became widely used in the early 70s. These tires were identified with a letter which indicated the tire's load capacity, followed by an "R" if radial ply construction, the tire's aspect ratio and wheel diameter.
1010tires.com Tire Size calculator. Use our tire calculator to compare tire sizes based on tire diameter, radius, sidewall height, circumference, revs per mile and speedometer difference.
The values shown are calculated measurements based on the p-metric formula. Actual advertised tire height and tread width will vary from manufacturer to manufacturer for specific p-metric tire sizes.
These codes are typical for Harleys but can be for any tire. The codes do not go beyond 150mm in width. With these tires, the first number of the tire size is not the actual width, it is just a number.
Finally. A massive tire size chart with both metric and inch tire sizes listed to easily compare every tire size in one spot. Here are two tire size charts that list every tire by wheel size or by diameter to make your search as simple as possible.
