When radial tyres were first developed you would come across tyre sizes such as 155-13 or 155 R13. As tyres were developed the introduction of low profile tyres meant that an aspect ratio were listed after the first width measurement in this case 155. (meaning 155mm wide). So for instance if there were a 155/70 – 13 this would mean that the side wall height were 70% of the 155mm. Before these lower profile tyres were developed tyre sizes like 155-13 had no need to list the aspect ratio as there was now choice. These earlier cars do have a 80% aspect ratio, and could effectively be called 155/80-13 or 155/80R13.
