A typical tire measurement is given in three parts. Ex. 255/55/R17 This measure ment means: Tire width in mm/Aspect Ratio/ Radial design on a 17 inch wheel. The aspect ratio is the width/height of the tire. So in the example given the aspect ratio is: 55=255/height So find height 255*.55=140.25mm 140.25mm=5.5 inches So the overall height of the tire= (5.5*2)+17=28 inches You can use this series of calculations, or search for an online calculator that will do it for you.

the ratio of wing span to the chord of the aerofoil is ASPECT RATIO

The aspect ratio of 1280x800 pictures is 16:10. Aspect ratio can be found by finding the proportion of an image's length and width. Common aspect ratios include; 1:1, 4:3, 3:2, 16:9, and others.

It depends on the laptop you have.

The aspect ratio of a computer monitor or a television screen is its horizontal length divided by its vertical length, both measured in the same units.

That is the aspect ratio , or ratio of width to height of the tire

The aspect ratio is the tires profile. For instance, a tire with a 60 aspect ratio means that the tires hight from tread to rim is 60% of the tires nominal width. The lower the aspect ratio # the wider the tire.

It means it is a radial tire with 70 aspect ratio.

Is called the aspect ratio.

Yes, for traction.

They come in many aspect ratios from 45 to 80

They go from 45 to 75

Yes, the smaller the aspect ratio the wider the tire.

No a 70 aspect ratio tire would be taller than a 65.

Depends on the aspect ratio of the tire. For instance a 215/70-16 and a 205/75-16 are almost the exact same diameter with the 205 tire being 1/4" larger in diameter because it has a larger aspect ratio. For all practical purposes they are the same height. I would have to know the aspect ratio of both tires to answer the question.

Usually, it'll be XXX/75R22.5 or XXX/80R22.5, with "XXX" being 275, 285, or 295. On a 22.5 inch wheel with a 75 aspect ratio, it'll have a diameter of 39.33 inches. With an 80 aspect ratio, it'll have a diameter of 40.45 inches. A 24.5 inch wheel and tire will have a diameter of 41.33 inches with a 75 aspect ratio and a diameter of 42.45 with an 80 aspect ratio.

205 is the width of your tire the 65 is an aspect ratio that determines how tall the tire is compared to the width
