If you’ve ever inspected your tires or if you’ve had to buy a new set from your local Regina parts shop or tire store, you have no doubt seen the combination of numbers and letters on the tire sidewall. What do tire numbers mean? They are actually a code that indicates the size and type of tire and its particular performance purpose. If you’re shopping for new tires and need to determine which ones are right for your car, truck, or SUV, or if you’re simply wondering what do the numbers on tires mean, this guide from the parts team at Standard Motors will help.

While this string of letters and numbers may seem confusing at first glance, each section of code represents a piece of information to correctly identify the type of tire it is.
At the end of the code is “95H,” which is the load index and speed rating for the tire.
