Should you need to find out the size of your tyre just take a look at the side of your tyre. On every tyre you will find a sequence of numbers and letters.

What they stand for :-

205 – Is the Width 

55 –   Is the ‘profile’ (aspect ratio of the tyre)  

R16 –  Rimsize

91 –  Is the ‘load rating’

V –   Stands for ‘Speed Rating’ (the maximum speed for the tyre when fully loaded)
