Sizing Up Your Tires for Safety Reasons

Whether you purchase your tires at a retail store or have them professionally installed, it’s important to understand tire sizes and be able to understand the symbols and codes that are engraved into the sides of the tires. If you have questions about your tires, don’t hesitate to speak with the experts here at the parts department at Tom Masano Ford.

In an effort to save money, many drivers purchase their own tires. A misconception is that all they need to know is the tire size, which may read something like P235/75R15. In addition to tire size, you’ll also find this information on the side of the tire.

  • Where tire was made
  • Grading for traction, treadwear, and temperature resistance
  • Maximum inflation and pressure

This information is provided for your information and safety. Our service technicians in our Reading, PA, showroom are happy to help you understand everything you need to know about your tires. Contact us today or visit us for more information.
