Understanding Tire Size and Ratings

There are many ratings that are displayed on the size of a tire, including its size and load index. Whether you drive a car or truck, selecting the right tire for your vehicle is important for its safety and functionality.

Tires are designed for different uses. Passenger cars need different tires than work trucks, and all of the information can be read off of the sidewall. Also included in the ratings are the section width tread, speed rating, and radial construction. You'll also be able to see the maximum inflation pressure for the tire so that you don't put too much air in.

At Herb Chambers Maserati of Millbury, we'll listen to your driving habits and offer sound advice on which tire would work best for your vehicle. We always keep the best interests of our customers in mind.
