The numbers and letters on your sidewall can provide you with a lot of information about the size and safety information of the tires. These markings can be overwhelming but our team here at Lakeland Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram Inc in Greenville, PA is here to help.

One of the first markings that you will see will be a letter. P stands for a passenger vehicle, while some tires equipped on a light truck will have an LT. Right after this number will be a number indicated in millimeters that will show the width of the sidewall.

Other letters on the tire will indicate the speed rating of the tires. If you see a Z, S, or T, this will indicate the highest speed that the tire can handle, with Z being the highest. Another letter that you may see is an R. This indicates that the tire is a radial tire.
