About 265/65-17 Tires
Here is a head scratcher: You want some new tires for your rig, and you have found some LT 265/65-17 tires that look right. However, you have no idea what that code means. Fortunately the answer is simple, the two letters at the start indicate that this tire is for a light truck; a "P" would indicate a passenger tire instead. The first three-digit number designates the section width from sidewall to sidewall in millimeters. The next two-digit number is the aspect ratio, defining the height of the sidewall as a percentage of the section width. For example, "65" means the height of the sidewall is 65 percent of the section width. The last number is the wheel diameter in inches. Armed with this knowledge, it is easy to determine that LT 265/65-17 tires are 17-inch tires with a 265mm section width, and a sidewall that is 65 percent of the section width. Now you can shop with confidence for 265/65-17 truck tires, available from the large inventory on eBay.
