Tyre size 175/65 R14 - Welcome to the Farnsfield Auto Centre in Newark
Are you driving a small vehicle and are looking for new tyres? Here on our Farnsfield Auto Centre website, you will find exactly what you are looking for. Mainly small cars are equipped with tyres of the dimension, 175/65 R14. This tyre designation consists of four individual indications, which characterise the specific characteristics of the tire.
The first three-digit number - in this case, the "175" - indicates the width of the tire in millimetres. The measurement always takes place at the widest point of the tyre and in the unloaded condition.
A slash always separates the first from the second, which is the ratio of the height of the flank of the tyre to its width. In this case, the percentage ratio is 65 percent. Thus, the tyre has a flank height of 113.75 millimetres, which is the product of the tyre width (175 millimetres) and the ratio (65 percent).
The third indication - the letter "R" - refers to the design of the tyre. All tyres marked with "R" are so-called radial tyres - also called belt tyres. Their name derives from the radial arrangement of the carcass plies.
The last number group indicates which rim size is required for this tyre, measured in inches. Accordingly, rims with a diameter of 14 inches are required for tyres of this same dimension.
So, after this little information about your tyre size, enjoy browsing and buying your new tyres from your Farnsfield Auto Centre in Newark.
