Jeep Wrangler tire sizes explained
Depending on the model you drive, tires sizes can vary. The standard factory size, the Wrangler comes with 15″-17″ tires.
A tire size example can be deciphered as follows: (e.g. 255/75R17)
- The first set of numbers (255) refers to the tire width in millimeters.
- The next set of numbers (75) is the sidewall aspect ratio, a percentage that tells us how tall and narrow the sidewall of the tire is in millimeters.
- The next part of the number system describes the tire’s internal construction, in this case, ‘Radial.’ The other option is “B” for Bias Ply used on some truck types.
- The last two digits in the system (17) represent the tire’s wheel diameter in inches.
Additionally, if tires are being referred to in inches, the measurement will read 33×12.50R15.
- The first number (33) refers to the full-length diameter of the tire in inches, from the ground to the top of the tire.
- The next number (12.50) will be the width of the tire in inches.
- The last number (15) is the rim’s diameter in inches.
