Metric system is based on:

“Width (millimeters)” / “Aspect Ratio (percent)”  “R for radial” “Rim Size (inches)”

Diameter (inches) = width / 25.4 * 2 * aspect ratio / 100 + rim size

i.e. for 245/75R16

245 / 25.4 * 2 * 75 / 100 + 16 = 30.47″

Width (inches) = width / 25.4

i.e. for 245/75R16

245 / 25.4 = 9.65″
