Trailer Tire Size Guide
Reading a Trailer Tire
Trailer tire sizes are broken into main groups 12 inch and smaller and 13 inch and larger. Sizes 12 inch and smaller are generally listed by a two number size, such as 4.80-8 or 5.70-12. The first number in this size is the width of the tread, the second number is the size of the rim that it mounts on. Large size trailer tires are made up of three numbers. For example, a common trailer tire size is ST225/75R15. ST stands for special trailer and indicates that this tire is designed to be used on a trailer. 225 is the width of the tread in millimeters. 75 is the height of the sidewall represented as a percentage of the tread width. 15 is the size of the rim this tire mounts on. In the case of a 225/75R15, the tire is roughly 9 inches wide, 28 inches tall and mounts on a 15 inch rim.
