Thank you for sharing, Denny - hopefully, no one was harmed! Blowouts can be very frustrating.

Tire Sidewall | Do you know what all the letters and numbers mean?

Where do I find the size of my tire? How do I know what the speed rating is?

These are just a couple of common questions we field from our customers and rightfully so. A tire's sidewall contains a plethora of markings with letters, numbers, and even codes. It's these alphanumeric markings that tell you important information about the tire such as construction, age, and type.

For more on what these numbers and letters mean and where to find them on your tire, check out the overview linked below.
