Motorcycle tires may seem difficult to de-code at first. Here is a
simple guide to unlocking the information on the sidewall of you
motorcycle tires. You will see a series of numbers on your
sidewall i.e. 130/90HB-16 What these numbers stand for is the tire
width, aspect ratio, speed rating, construction type and rim
For instance, the
130 stands for 130mm of tread width. The 90 stands for the aspect
ratio (sidewall height) which is a percentage, so for a 130/90 the
aspect ratio/sidewall is 90% of the tread width or 117mm.
The next number (speed rating) determines
what speed, that this tire is designed to be safely operated. In this
example, the H speed rating means that tire has a maximum speed rating
of 130 MPH. V-rated tires have a maximum speed rating of 149MPH and
Z-rated is 149+MPH. This doesn’t mean it is ok to break the speed
limit, it simply means the manufacturer has certified that tire to be
capable of those speeds.
Last but not
least is the rim diameter. You couldn’t very well stretch a 16 tire on
a 18 inch rim, so it’s important to you to know what size rim your
dealing with when replacing tires.
recommend a tire size or speed rating less than what the factory
equipped your bike with, please don’t ask. However we will get you the
best prices, on the best motorcycle tire brands for you motorcycle.
The Next letter designation
stands for the construction of the tire itself. In this example, the B
stands for Bias construction, meaning the tire is a bias ply, not a radial.
You will see an R in this place if the tire is of radial construction.
