Volkswagen Polo Service & Repair Manual: Run-Flat Tire (PAX), Lettering On Side Wall

In contrast to conventional tires, other designations are found on the tire flanks of PAX tires. In this way, these tires can be allocated clearly.
   
PAX Tires, Designations
245 -  Tire width in millimeters
690 -  Outer diameter in millimeters
R -  Radial construction
500 -  Designated diameter on standard rim seat
A -  Tire quality grading for PAX tires (A- “asymmetrical”) because both rim seats have different diameters.
99 -  Indicator of maximum load permitted for this tire (99 = 1550 kg (1.7 tons))
Y -  Speed code letter (“Y”) corresponds to a permitted maximum speed of 300 km/h (186.41 mph).

Load index (LI)

The load capacity index can be found on the sidewall of the tire. It provides information about the maximum load that the tire can bear.
The load capacity index is located in the size designation, e.g. 195/65 R 15 91T, of the tire. It is indicated on the tire as a code according to ETRTO. The following table shows the load capacity index with the corresponding load capacity of the tires.
