An aspect ratio measures the measure of the size that the sidewall is in relation to its length. If the aspect ratio for 10.4in wide tire is 50, then the aspect ratio for 10.4in large tire measures 50, that indicates that the sidewall measures 50% of the width or 5.4in.
Then, add the size of the tire to get the tire’s height.
