When GILBERT drivers replace tires, they need to match this width number, or the tires won't fit properly in the wheel wells. The 50 is the aspect ratio of the tire, which is measured by taking the height of the sidewalls and dividing it by the tread width. If you drive off-road around the GILBERT area, it should have a high aspect ... read more
