The cryptic numbers inscribed on the sidewalls of tyres have been confusing car owners since forever. Most people know that it has got to do something with the size of tyres, but that’s the extent of their knowledge. Today, we are going to talk about one such number. The reason is that we are experiencing an unprecedented level of interest on tyres of this size at Totton Tyre and Exhaust. 

The size we are talking about is 235/45 R17. These numbers can tell you everything you need to know about the dimension of your car tyres Totton. Let’s break it down a bit for your better understanding:

The first three digits, i.e. 235, correspond to the width of the tyre in millimetres. 

The next two, i.e. 45, is its aspect ratio. Simply put, it is the height of the tyre with respect to its width. In this particular instance, the height of the tyre is 45% of its width (45% of 235 mm).

There is a letter that comes next, namely ‘R’. That stands for the type of tyre, which is radial in this example. 

And lastly, there is the rim diameter in inches. On this set of tyres, the rim is 17 inches across.

Hopefully, we could clear your doubts regarding your car tyre markings. Now, let's take a look at the tyres of this size that buyers can avail in Southampton. 

Although there are many tyres of this size coming from various recognisable brands, the one that we recommend is Vitora Sportlife. Vitora, as a brand, is gaining quick recognition across the length and breadth of the UK for their excellent quality tyres. Competing neck to neck with behemoths in an already cramped industry, they have managed to hold their ground because of the superior quality of their car tyres.

The Sportlife is one such tyre. Apt for all the performance car enthusiasts out there, these tyres are matchless in their handling and braking capabilities. They also provide you with a quiet and comfortable ride owing to their pitch sequence and optimised tread block.
