Tyres Explained

Tyre Size:

The tyre size is made up of 3 measurements, the width, the profile and the diameter. The diameter must match the diameter of the wheel, and all cars have a recommended tyre sizes when upgrading from your original wheels to new aftermarket alloy wheels. So if you are changing from smaller wheels to larger, or larger wheels to smaller, there is a conversion to calculate the correct tyre size that your vehicle should be using.

Unlike many competitor sites, Rimstyle.com automatically selects suitable tyre sizes for vehicle (on both the Front and Rear Axles), so you can be confident that you won't be receiving a phone call after placing your order asking you to pay more money for an alternative size of tyre that the website hasn't initially calculated - Different to many internet companies we are not interested in 'hidden costs'

Tyre sidewall markings explained:

The size of a tyre is marked on the side tyre wall. It is always shown as width, profile, and then diameter.
For example a 205/40R17 tyre means:
205 = The width of the tyre in mm
40 = The sidewall height in relation to the tyre width shown as a percentage
17 = The tyre diameter (this must equal the alloy wheel diameter)
