## What does 205 65R15 mean on tires?

205. This number indicates that your tire has a width of 205 millimeters. 65. This number means that your tire has an aspect ratio of 65%. In other words, your tire’s sidewall height (from the edge of the rim to the tire’s tread) is 65% of the width.

## What’s the difference between 205 and 215 tires?

The diameter of the 205 is 26.3 inches and for the 215 the diameter is 26.7 inches. That is 0.4 inches of difference meaning that it would raise the height of the trailer by 0.2 inches. This will not only help with the height but also help to prevent over heating which is why many trailer tires fail.

## Can I use 205 60r16 instead of 205 55R16?

No it won’t. The wheel radius is exactly the same, only the profile slightly different. The radius will be very slightly different. 205 /55 will have a total radius of 519.15mm, while 205 /60 will have a total radius of 529.4mm, so about 2% difference.

## Can I put 60 tires instead of 55?

Yesthe wheel/ tire combo has an overall diameter/circumference that should be maintained with 3% (+/-) the original spec. When you plus size wheelsthe aspect ratio (height of the tire ) decreases to compensateand maintain the orig diameter/circumference.

## Can I use 215 60r16 instead 205 65r16?

1″ difference in radius) Technically, it will fit. It isn’t a bad idea to do this with snow tires as the narrower tire will give better traction.

## Can 205 55R16 replace 195 65R15?

Short answer, it will be fine. Long answer, it will be fine as long as the load rating is equal or higher capacity. Not many high load rated tires in those sizes, so probably ok. Tire sizes are metric, and are read as follows: 205 (tread width in mm)/65(side wall ratio, so 65% of tread width)R15(rim 15 inch diameter).
