Do you mean the aspect ratio? A number like 50 or 4 or 35? This is the height of the sidewall as a percentage of the tire section width.

First is width in mm

Second is aspect ratio (the percentage of the width, that is the height beyond the rim)

Third is the rim in inches (a few are metric, BL Metro for example)

Then you have the speed rating (letters H, V, Z etc)

Then the load in numbers (88, 95 etc)
