Product Questions & Answers

 
Question:
What is the aspect ratio of this tire 2 1/2 Inch Whitewall | 550-16
By Karl on February 23, 2017
Answer:

This is a bias ply tire and bias ply tires simply were not sized the way modern radials are with metric width, aspect ratio, etc. However when you do the math, it turns out that most vintage bias ply tires have a sidewall height equivalent to approximately 83% or 83 aspect ratio.
