Vitora 215/50 R17 Tyres
Choosing a new set of car tyres can be a tricky proposition. There is a multitude of options vying for your attention, and you are probably confused about which one to go for. You may have already decided whether you want a summer tyre or a winter tyre or an all-season variant. These are all variables and depend on your individual preference, but there is one aspect of tyres that you cannot choose and have to go with what the manufacturer specifies - the size.
Car tyres come in all sizes - from the relatively smaller ones in compact coupes to the bigger ones in SUVs and off-roaders. However, today, we are going to talk about a particular size- 215/50 R17. That’s because we have noticed that the number of people in Southampton coming in to get these tyres are increasing day by day.
If you are a novice driver and have no clue about what these numbers mean, fret not. We will clear all your doubts. 215 is the width of the tyre in millimetres while 50 represents the height to width ratio. The ‘R’ stands for radial which denotes the type of tyre it is, and 17 is the rim diameter in inches. Pretty simple, huh?
