Reading Tire Sizes Accurately

There are many things to consider when buying new tires for your car or truck in Ventura, CA. Being able to understand the ratings printing on the size of a new tire can ensure that you select a set that will stand up to your driving needs.

The markings on the size of a tire can tell you about its size, construction, and ability to carry weight. The first letter in the markings can either be a P for passenger cars or LT for light trucks. European metric tires don't have letter before the rest of the size information.

At Kirby Kia of Ventura, we employ highly knowledgeable staff members who can help you understand your different options for a new set of tires. Any of your questions will be answered promptly, and we can get your new tires installed efficiently.
