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.
