20-inch Wheel Conversion Chart

Metric to Standard Tire Conversion Chart for 20 inch Wheels
Metric Standard
325/50/20 33.0"x 13.2"
Metric measurement example: 225/70R15
225 = Section width in millimeters
70 = Aspect ratio (ratio of section height to section width)
R15 = Rim diameter
R = Radial Construction, B = Bias Construction, D = Bias Belted Construction
Calculations for Measurements
Tire Width: Section width divided by 25.4 (Ex: 225 / 25.4 = 8.86")
Section Height: Tire width times aspect ratio (Ex: 8.86" x 70% = 6.20")
Overall Diameter: Section height times 2 plus rim diameter (Ex: (6.20" x 2) + 15 = 27.40")
