o.k. i know i'm probably the only one who doesn't know this, but what do the numbers mean when talking about tires? ex. xxx/xx/xx. that's really been bugging me lately and would like to know what they mean. thanks.

225 is the section width of the tire(how wide it is in mm's)

60 is the % of the width that makes up the height or profile of the tire(smaller the # the shorter the sidewall)

16 would be the rim size

Hope this helps
