Learn How To Read The Tire Specifications

How many times did you ask yourself about the meaning of the code written on the tires sidewall? Actually, they do have a meaning and they are substantial in choosing the best set of tires that fit your car or needs.

These codes describe some basic information about the tire such as its dimension, maximum speed, load-baring ability, etc.

We thought about expounding here some of these codes to make purchasing new tires for your car easier.

 tire specifications

Tire Specifications

Code explanation

The code reveal the tire specifications. Codes have become more complex by years as they now demonstrate more specifications including traction rate, temperature resistance, etc.

The code is written in a string of letters written on its sidewall starting with the letters (P/LT/ST/T) which indicate the use of the vehicle or its class.

P stands for passenger car, LT for light truck, ST for special trailer, and the T is for Temporary.

Then there is a 3-digit number that indicates the width of the tire in millimeters. After this number there is a slash and another 2- or 3-digit number that indicates the tire height. So, all in all, this part of the code will be shown like that (xxx/xx).

Another 1- or 2-digit number is adjacent to this part that indicates the tire diameter. It could be 15, 16, 18, 22.5, or whatever.

Then there is a space and another 2- or 3-digit number that indicates the car load index or the maximum load the tires could bear.


Load Index

There are two different metrics of load index, ISO-Metric and P-Metric. They have slight differentiation in between, however, the ISO-Metric standards state the load index at inflation pressure of 36 psi while the P-Metric state them at 35 psi.

It’s worth mentioning also that P-Metric tires may have different load capacities according to the tire size. That’s why the TRA inflation tables should be into consideration when checking P-Metrics tires load index.

A standard load index table was issued to stand as a reference for all car owners and tires buyers. It shows the meaning of load index codes from 0 to 136,000 kg.

Each load index code has its adjacent of weight in kilograms or pounds shown in the table. For example, if you find the load index code on your tire sidewall is 60, then its maximum load weight is 250 kg.


 tire specifications

Speed rating

The speed symbol stands next to the load index code. It’s made up of only one letter in most cases and it indicates the maximum speed the tire can sustain.

Each letter has its adjacent of car speed. For example, the ‘Q’ code means the tire could sustain up to 160 km/h, R means 170 km/h, and S means 180 km/h.

You can find the speed rating table that shows all speed rating codes and their meanings on the internet, same as the load index table too.

This article may explain a lot about tires specifications code, but that’s not the whole of it. Keep following us for more information about car realm.

Top Tips For Cheaper Car Insurance

Driving became a daily necessity for longer periods of time, streets are becoming more crowded and even more dangerous hence cities are sprawling over large areas.

This made auto insurance an obligatory matter for all car owners. It’s compelling for making car drivers more assured and more confident while roaming the streets.

It’s a simple and easy tip, but when it comes to the price quote, it turns a little harder since car insurance could be expensive for most people.

That’s why we thought about showing some guidance and help for car owners, especially those who are buying their first car, while searching for car insurance to find the best agency that best suits their expectations and needs.

Top Tips For Cheaper Car Insurance

  • Online research

Buying a car in itself is an expensive process. Besides paying for the car, the owner finds himself surrounded with many other needs like car maintenance, fines, gas, spare parts, and many other things, not to mention, the car insurance.

So, the best way to search for a good insurance agency is to do it online. Shop around the internet as most well-established auto insurance agencies have their own websites where they demonstrate their offers, promotions, features, and services.

You can find a price quotes online. You can also compare, in a smooth and easy way, between agencies.


  • No extras

Many auto insurance agencies go for bumping up the price by adding some additional, and sometimes trivial, services such as windscreen cover, mats, use of a courtesy car, etc.

Try to avoid these extras as they are not really substantial. Even if you need any of these things, you can find them outside with way cheaper price tags attached to them.


  • Choose the coverage type

After finding the right agency, check the coverage type that best suits your financial abilities and expectations.

Agencies offer plenty types of coverage including bodily injury liability which covers injury and death claims against you in case of injuring or killing someone.

There is also the property damage liability which covers the costs of repairing any damages caused by your car to the other party. This kind of coverage is obligatory by law in many countries around the world.

You can find also a comprehensive coverage type which covers your medical bills, repair bills, and liability bills also.


  • Interest rate

Some people may not have the financial ability to pay insurance premiums at a time and prefer to spread it on some monthly, maybe bi-monthly installments.

Some Insurance agencies offer this service, but for higher interest rate. So, if you are going for a deal like that, don’t forget to check the interest rate and find out if it really suits you.


  • Please, read

Before signing any parcel or a piece of paper, kindly make sure you have gone through it thoroughly and you understand everything in it.


  • Be careful

Your house location could change your insurance premium as agencies tab higher prices for locations with high safety hazards or high probabilities of theft acts.

Your car price also could change your insurance premium, so before buying any fancy SUV or luxury sports car you have to be prepared for its insurance costs.

How To Choose The Right Motor Oil For Your Car

Purchasing new spare parts, oils, and lubricants for your car could be a riddle, especially if you are not a cars expert and not really into its industry.

Engine oil is one of the car matters you need to deal with every while. According to car experts, drivers must change the engine oil once every 6 months or 10,000 KMs.

Car manufacturers might recommend a type or two of engine oils for your car. The recommendations are based on engine temperature and other specifications.

While buying a new oil bottle for your car, you need to check a number of matters that we will demonstrate through this article.


  • Viscosity

Viscosity of certain fluid means its thickness. For example honey has more viscosity than water.

In respect of practicality, high-viscosity engine oils are better for low-temperature areas since they are less likely to freeze.

Viscosity rate is noted on the oil bottle as XW-XX. The number that precedes the W refers to the oil’s performance at -17.8 degrees climate, the lower this number is, the better it performs in cold. So, 0W oil thickens less in cold weather than 5W, and a 5W thickens less than 10W.

The numbers after the W indicates the oil’s viscosity at 100 degrees climate. So, 10W-30 oil will thin in high temperature more than 10W-40. In hot areas like GCC region, you must sure that this number is higher than 40 at least.


  • Synthetic/Full-Synthetic

If you own a high-tech car with a bit sophisticated engine, it’s better to use full-synthetic engine oil. They have long-lasting endurance and provide high-performance even in critical times and situations.

Full-synthetic oils are three-times expensive if compared to conventional oil. If you a regular average car, you might not need to buy one. Check the car’s manual guide to find if it is necessary for your vehicle.

Synthetic oil is something in the middle between conventional and full-synthetic oils. It’s an ordinary one with a synthetic touch. They are designed to offer better performance at heavy roads and high temperatures. They are not really expensive, only a bit pricier than conventional oil.

How To Choose The Right Motor Oil

  • Mileage

It’s up to you to choose whether you want a 5,000 km or 10,000 km oil. It’s believed that 10,000 oils can last for 15,000 KMs. However, it’s better not to go on this venture and stick to the users’ manual guide.


  • Car Age

About 60% of the cars running around the streets have 100,000 KMs in their record. People now prefer to keep their cars for longer times and buy pre-owned vehicles instead of brand new ones mainly for economic reasons of course.

Given to this fact, oil developers now produce high-mileage oils that offer better performance and higher care for old cars.

Both, conventional and synthetic oils, feature seal conditioners to increase their flexibility and maximize the engine performance, increase its durability, and maintain its health to offer better drive for the car owner in all circumstances.

If the car is safely elevated, it’s better to take a look under the car. Check the exhaust if it’s intact. It shouldn’t have any scratches, welding marks, or black spots. The occurrence of any of these marks may indicate leaking.

What to check when buying a used car?

  • The inner cabin

Now, it’s time to get into the car. You have to check the seats and the upholstery of the salon. Also, don’t forget to check the air conditioner, you have to make sure it is well preforming.

The mileage in the dashboard is another important spot to look at. It indicates the car age as a normal driver should drive from 16,000 to 24,000 kms a year. By checking the mileage you will have an idea about the car’s usage rate and its age.


  • Take a quick drive

Start the engine and ask the current owner for a quick drive. While driving around check the lights, the indicators and the speed gauge. You should make sure also that the suspension, brakes, accelerator, transmission system, and the handling are intact.

To get sure about the car’s status, it’s better to take advantage of a second thought, how about grabbing a friend or a relative while checking the car to get his feedback as well.
