Top Commercial Truck Tire Sizes Identified

By Team Writer / December 2, 2019

In its latest fact book that reports on tires and their uses, the US tire manufacturers association (USTMA) has identified the top original equipment manufacturer and aftermarket tire sizes for the year 2018. One category that was listed was top tires that were added to new trucks. The sizes listed as having the top five ranks were 295/75R22.5 which were added 28.4 percent of the time, 11R22.5 which were added 24.9 percent of the time, 275/80R22.5 which were added 13.1 percent of the time, 225/70R19.5 which was added 8.6 percent of the time and 11R24.5 which had 5.8 percent. Also listed were the top five tire replacement sizes. The table ranking has been this way for the past four years, the association notes. One size that was differentiated in this classification was 275/80R22.5. It used to be grouped together with 295/75R22.5 prior to 2015 by the association due to the fact that they had identical applications but from 2015-2017, they were separated as separate tires.

Key Takeaways:

  • The sizes of tires that have to be added to new trucks have top five sizes which include 295/75R22.5 (28.4%), 11R22.5 (24.9%), 275/80R22.5 (13.1%), and 225/70R19.5 (8.6%).

  • Two sizes that used to be grouped together as having identical applications were size 275/80R22.5 and size 295/75R22.5 but the USTMA from 2015-2017 has decided to separate them.
