frequently asked questions
Where can I find my tyre size?
Your tyre size can be found on the side wall of the current tyres you would like to have replaced. You will see a combination of characters in a form similar to: 195/60R15 88H, meaning:
- 195 = Width of tyre in millimetres
- 60 = Aspect ratio of the tyre profile (height of the side as a percentage of the width). So this aspect ratio is 60% of 195 millimetres.
- R15 = R means that it’s a radial tyre, the following two digits are the diameter of the wheel in inches
- 88 = Load Index
- H = Speed Index
You can also search your vehicle for the manufacturers placard to find a suggested tyre size and a minimum tyre size, load rating and weight rating. This is usually found on the drivers door, under the bonnet, or in the glove box, but locations vary between manufacturers and models.
What kind of tyres does Tyroola sell?
We sell tyres for cars, 4x4 SUVs, light truck and trucks for dry, wet and snowy terrains.
How do I know when to change my tyres?
It is advisable to replace your tyres when the tread depth is below 2mm. The legal limit for the minimum tread depth in Australia is 1.6mm. Furthermore, damage to tyres are seen as side wall cracks and tread cracks due to natural degradation through tyre age; the signs to change the tyres. It is recommended to always change the 2 front, or 2 back tyres at the same time.
How do I know which is the tyre that is suitable for the speed I drive?
Given below is a table that shows the relevant speeds with speed letters, which is seen at the sidewall of the tyre.
Be sure to check the manufacturers placard so the tyre you purchase meets the minimum requirements of your vehicle.
What does load index signify?
The load index is a rating system, which is indicated before the speed-rating symbol. This rating system has numbers ranging from 0 to 279; each number corresponds to a specific maximum load capacity on the tyre. The common load index for passenger vehicles ranges from 62 to 126. However with an incorrect load rating, it can result in a serious accident.
Again, be sure to check the manufacturers placard so the tyre you purchase meets the minimum requirements of your vehicle.
Age of tyres
Most tyres are around 1 year old but max age is 4 years. We only sell NEW tyres, we do not sell second hand/used tyres, factory seconds or any damage tyres. The date of the order will be used against the manufacture date of the tyre to determine the max 4 year gap.
