LT335/70R16 — what does it mean?
- LT means "light truck"
- 335 stands for tread width in millimeters
- 70 is an aspect ration between the tread width and the sidewall in percents
- R means that the tire has a radial construction
- 16 is a wheel diameter (or rim) in inches
How to convert LT335 70R16 to inches?
First of all, we need to divide 335 mm (width) by 25.4 (mm to inch conversion), which will give us a width of 13.2″. Then, 70% of the 13.2″ will result in 9.3″ sidewall.
To get the total height or tire diameter, we need to sum the 16″ rim diameter with two of the sidewall heights. It will result in a 34.6″ total tire diameter (or height).
For your convenience, below is a table for LT335/70R16 conversion to inches:
|Overall diameter (height)||34.6″||879 mm|
|Tread width||13.2″||335 mm|
|Wheel diameter||16″||879 mm|
|Sidewall height||9.3″||235 mm|
|Revolutions||583 / ml||362 / km|
