Tire Size Chart

Tires play an important role in the performance of the cars and therefore people always need some kind of calculator that can help them to convert different measurements of tires. Since you already have an auto repair store you should look out for metric tire conversion chart that you can put up in your store so that your mechanics can check out the exact measurement of the tire and it really saves the time for all the workers at your garage. The chart is much better option than the calculator because all the measurements are already provided with answers.
Standard SAE tire sizes example: 35×12.50-16 tire runs 35 inches tall by 12.5 inches wide for a 16 inch wheel


Metric tire sizes: 315/75R16 tire is 315 mm wide with a sidewall height that is 75% of the width for a 16 inch wheel.

Converting a metric tire to inches can be done with the equation

[315] / [75] R [16] =
=[ (Tire Width x Aspect Ratio x 2) / 2550 + Wheel Diameter ] x [ Tire Width / 25.4 ] – [ Wheel Diameter ] =
= [35] x [12.4] – [16]
