Truck & Bus Tyre Sizing Explained

How Do I Read my Truck/Bus Tyre Size?

Modern commercial truck and bus tyre sizes will look like 295/80R22.5 or 315/80R22.5. These are metric sizes, with the first number being the tyre WIDTH, next after the '/' comes the tyre PROFILE, and the final number is the RIM size. These size have an "R" in them to show that they are of RADIAL construction. So a 295/80R22.5 tyre has a WIDTH of 295mm, a PROFILE of 80, is of Radial construction and fits a 22.5 inch RIM.

Light trucks or vintage trucks or buses can sometimes have tyres with imperial size marking, such as 7.50R16 and 12.00R20. A 7.50R20 tyre has a WIDTH of 7.5 inches, is of Radial construction, and fits a RIM of 20" diameter. A lot of vintage or classic trucks/bus, and some military vehicles use Crossply tyres instead of Radial. Crossply tyres have a '-' instead of the 'R' in their size marking. This means they are CROSSPLY construction.

With truck tyres it is always recommended to replace like for like, so if you need any advice on getting the right size, construction, pattern and rating please Contact Us.

Truck Tyre Speed and Load Indexes

A tyre's Speed Index is the maximum safe speed of the tyre; this is represented with a letter from the very slow (A1) to the very fast (Y and beyond). The Load Index is the maximum weight that the tyre can safely support. This is represented by a number: the higher this number is the more weight the tyre can carry. It is imperative for the safety of the vehicle and its occupants that tyres with high enough Speed and Load Indexes are chosen. To find out more about Speed and Load Indexes and all other tyre markings, have a look at our Tyre Size Guide.
