3 numbers such as :

205/55/15

The first number tells you how wide the tire is... 205mm, or just about 8".

The 2nd number is an aspect ratio. It tells you that the tire side wall is 55% as high as the tire is wide. So 55% of 205mm, which is about 113mm (or 4.4").

The last number 15 tells you how big the hold in the middle of the tire is, or what size rim it is for.
