What are 315/70 R17?
315/70 R17 is a tire size. In tough off-road situations, the improved cut-resistant tire compound and aggressive tread pattern provide exceptional resistance. The tire combines the particular toughness of heavy machine tires with the comfort of passenger vehicle tires in a continuous fashion.
It also includes Aramid fibers, which reinforce the tire’s sidewalls and provide durability and protection in high-stress driving circumstances. Stone ejectors extend the life of the tire and provide additional protection by preventing tire body damage. Professional drivers and off-road enthusiasts will appreciate the extraordinary durability.
The 315/70R17 has a 34.4-inch diameter, a 12.7-inch width, a 17-inch rim, and 604 revolutions per mile. These tires generally weigh 62.4 pounds and the weight which they can bear at maximum is 3195/2910 pounds. Moreover, they have a 65psi air compression along with 15/32″ tread depth. Generally, they are suitable for the rims size (8-11 inches) wide.

315/70 R17 in inches
315/70 R17 tires have a 34.4-inch diameter, a 12.4-inch section width, and a 17-inch rim diameter. As a result, the closest and almost identical metric tire size of 315/70R17 is 35×12.50R17, which is 1.74 percent higher and 0.81 percent wider.
What rims are suitable for 315/70 R17 tires?
Every tire needs different rim size, wrong calculation of the wheel size can put you in trouble. The selection of the right size of the tire along with rim is very important. The rim sizes which are required for these tires are:
Rim width with the Rim diameter
- 17 x 8.5 inches
- 17 x 10 inch.
What does 315/70 R17 mean?
315: 315 millimeters (12.4 inches) is the width of the tire which can be seen through first number.
70: The aspect proportion is the second value. In this case, the percentage is 70%.
R17: R shows the radial of the tire, these days the demand of these tires have increased. The number which is given above shows the tire’s diameter in inches. On a 17 inches wheel size, these tires will fit on the rim, therefore, before selecting any wheel do confirm your rim’s size.
Understanding tire measures is difficult, especially when tires are identical in size but are specified using various metrics. There are two types of measurements: metric and imperial or standard, which may rapidly become complicated.
The entire combined width (mm), aspect ratio (percent), and wheel diameter (inches) measurement is shown by the 35″ tire. The 315-tire measurement is a metric figure that exclusively refers to the width of the tire in millimeters.
Although 315 is the tread thickness in millimeters and 35 is the tire distance, 315 wide tires are the similar as 35″ tires. The metric equivalent size for standard/imperial 35-inch tires is commonly 315/70/17. Approximate tire diameter: 17.36′′ + 17′′ wheel = 34.36′′
