LT295/50R22 — what does it mean?
- LT means "light truck"
- 295 stands for tread width in millimeters
- 50 is an aspect ration between the tread width and the sidewall in percents
- R means that the tire has a radial construction
- 22 is a wheel diameter (or rim) in inches
How to convert LT295 50R22 to inches?
First of all, we need to divide 295 mm (width) by 25.4 (mm to inch conversion), which will give us a width of 11.6″. Then, 50% of the 11.6″ will result in 5.8″ sidewall.
To get the total height or tire diameter, we need to sum the 22″ rim diameter with two of the sidewall heights. It will result in a 33.6″ total tire diameter (or height).
For your convenience, below is a table for LT295/50R22 conversion to inches:
|Overall diameter (height)||33.6″||853 mm|
|Tread width||11.6″||295 mm|
|Wheel diameter||22″||853 mm|
|Sidewall height||5.8″||148 mm|
|Revolutions||600 / ml||373 / km|
