T165/80D17 — what does it mean?
- T means "temporary"
- 165 stands for tread width in millimeters
- 80 is an aspect ration between the tread width and the sidewall in percents
- D means that the tire has a diagonal construction
- 17 is a wheel diameter (or rim) in inches
How to convert T165 80D17 to inches?
First of all, we need to divide 165 mm (width) by 25.4 (mm to inch conversion), which will give us a width of 6.5″. Then, 80% of the 6.5″ will result in 5.2″ sidewall.
To get the total height or tire diameter, we need to sum the 17″ rim diameter with two of the sidewall heights. It will result in a 27.4″ total tire diameter (or height).
For your convenience, below is a table for T165/80D17 conversion to inches:
|Overall diameter (height)||27.4″||696 mm|
|Tread width||6.5″||165 mm|
|Wheel diameter||17″||696 mm|
|Sidewall height||5.2″||132 mm|
