The "185" is simply telling you the width of the tire in millimeters. On the door jamb of your car, there is a sticker that should tell you the size of the tires that the factory put on your car. Using this, you should never have to guess in millimeters how wide your tires should be.
Since you will always now have your tire size handy, don’t be afraid to shop around when looking for tires. You already know what kind to buy, it will only take a little work to go out and find the best price for you. It’s absolutely okay to ask questions to make sure you are getting what you think you are paying for. Any store or car dealership that sells tires will always have someone around to help you find what you are looking for. Don’t be afraid to ask. Of course you can always do exactly what the mechanic says and try not to be involved as much as possible. But, why would you? You know what you are doing and new tires are not a scary thought anymore. Your safety is in your hands and more than likely, your wallet won’t thin out as much as it could. Be adventurous and feel good about having some control over the maintenance of your car.
Steer tires are designed for the tractor and create a smooth ride and easy handling. These are the tires that help you corner and turn while maintaining good traction and grip on the road. Steer tires can actually be used in all positions but they absolutely should be used for those all-important front tractor tires. The tread design of steer tires is also unique. It is always designed to move water away from the tire in a ribbed type of channel design. This helps with keeping the tire on the road during cornering.
