170/70B16 M/C 75H.
Width of the tire is 170mm.
The aspect ratio of the tire is 70%. The tire's sidewall height from the edge of the wheel to the tire's tread is 70% of the width.
B Bias Belt
The tire is designed to be mounted on an 16" wheel diameter.
75: This number is the load index. 75 equals 853 LB
H: This letter is the speed rating of the tire. H equals 130 MPH
I would go with the 180/70HR-16 It's 10mm wider (.39 in) Radial instead of Bias Belt and same speed rating.
