16" tyres have marking R16 in their designation. To avoid confusion, it is important to remember when choosing tyres, that “R” means “radial” and not “radius”. Most tyres are produced with radial cord nowadays. Unlike bias tyres, radial ones provide more reliable road grip and are thus safer. Radial cord is proved to reduce fuel consumption, to have maximum traction and increased service life.
R16 tyre is a great option for passenger cars and commercial vehicles. They are often installed on crossovers, a bridge between trucks and passenger cars. These tyres can be used for driving on asphalt and country roads.
To make the right choice, you should know the sizes recommended by the manufacturer for installation on a particular vehicle. They are indicated in the operation manual of the vehicle. All parameters can be found on the side of the tyre. To understand what they mean one should understand the principles of tyre marking. It is more convenient to consider them on a specific designation, for example, 195/55 R16 87V:
Often, according to the manufacturer’s recommendations there are several tyre sizes which can be mounted on a vehicle. For example, 195/55 R16 and 205/55 R16. In this case it is important to know that the wider the tyre is, the bigger the height of its profile is, which in its turn has an impact on the driving experience: the steering response decreases, on the other hand, the car overcomes all the bumps more smoothly. The smaller the profile, the better the car's handling is, and that is quite important for those who love high speed driving.
The smallest R16 tyre width is 185 mm and the largest – 290 mm. Rosava tyre line includes the following sizes:
