Tire Conversion Chart

Aspect Ratio
The aspect ratio of a tire is the relationship of the tire cross section height ( 'H' below) to the cross section width ('S' below). In a tire with an aspect ratio of 85, for example, height is about 85% of the tire width. 'Low profile' tires have as aspect ratio of less than 80. The aspect ratio of a tire is often contained in the size marking, e.g. 130/90 x 16. etc..

Aspect Ratio = ( H / S) x 100

Tire Size Markings

Motorcycle tires are manufactured in a number of different countries with differing requirements in terms of load, dimensions and speed ratings. This has resulted in various size markings. The following chart gives a guide to the relationship between various size markings. THIS CHART DOES NOT IMPLY EXACT COMPARISONS.
