Finally. A massive tire size chart with both metric and inch tire sizes listed to easily compare every tire size in one spot. Here are two tire size charts that list every tire by wheel size or by diameter to make your search as simple as possible.
Alpha numeric tire sizes were introduced as Original Equipment in the late 60s and became widely used in the early 70s. These tires were identified with a letter which indicated the tire's load capacity, followed by an "R" if radial ply construction, the tire's aspect ratio and wheel diameter.

Automobile tires are described by an alphanumeric tire code (in American English and Canadian English) or tyre code (in British English, Australian English and others), which is generally molded (or moulded) into the sidewall of the tire. This code specifies the dimensions of the tire, and some of its key limitations, such as load-bearing ability, and maximum speed.

Metric tire conversion can be quite a pain. With inch tire sizes the first number is the height and the second is the width. Well, with metric sizes the first number is the width and the second is the percent of the width that is the sidewall height.
Verify tire specifications and dimensions of tires by viewing the SPECS page of tires you are interested in. While this chart can't guarantee a specific tire will fit your vehicle, it can give you an idea of the available tire sizes with the same approximate overall diameter.
