The writing is on the wall

There is a lot of information on the sidewall of a tyre. The two main purposes are firstly to allow you to identify the size and specification of the tyre and secondly to confirm that the tyre has been tested and approved to European and other counrty safety standards.

For example:

205 width of tyre in mm
55 Height of the tyre sidewall as a percentage of the width. In thisĀ  case 55% of 205mm. This is also known as the aspect ratio.
R Radial construction
16 Diameter of the tyres inner rim in inches.
91 Load rating of tyre (In this case its 615kg)
V Speed rating of tyre i.e. the maximum speed for the tyre when at full load. (In this case 149mph)
