The two-digit number after the slash mark in a tire size is the aspect ratio. For example, in a size P215/65 R15 tire, the 65 means that the height is equal to 65% of the tire’s width. The bigger the aspect ratio, the bigger the tire’s sidewall will be.

What is the 3 tire rule?
Yes, your comprehensive coverage will cover three slashed tires, or any amount of slashed tires, whether it is one or four. It is a popular misconception that insurance companies won’t cover three slashed tires, that it would have to be all four for the car owner to file a claim.
Why do you only flatten 3 tires?
Because their insurance won’t cover just 3. For insurance to cover tire replacement, it has to be all 4. Insurance will cover if all 4 are slashed; they won’t cover 3 tires.
Can I use 235 tires instead of 225?

Can I use 215 tires instead of 205?
Nope. The nominal diameter of the 215’s is 1.7% greater than that of the 205’s. The sidewall height is a percentage of the width of the tire, so a 55 series is taller with a wider tire.
Are LT tires better?
Usually, LT tires have deeper tread depths than their P-Metric counterparts. Officially, LT tires should always be replaced with LT tires. P-Metric tires are passenger tires that are better suited for on-road use. If a P-Metric tire size is chosen, the tires should be able to carry at least 1,238 pounds.
What does the Z mean on tires?

Should I get H or T rated tires?
Tires with higher speed ratings generally have better steering response and cornering grip than lower-speed rated tires, in addition to being capable of higher speeds. So if your car originally came with H–rated tires, that’s what you should replace them with. Sticking with H–rated tires comes at a cost.
Do car tires have an inside and outside?
Some tires are directional which means that they have a correct direction of rotation, and some tires are asymmetrical which means they have different tread from inside to outside. Asymmetrical tires have an inside and outside to their tread.
