These tyres fit a range of larger vehicles such as 4WDs. 215 70R16 tyres have a section width of 215 mm, while the 70 indicates that the height of the tyre is 70% of the width. They are designed with radial ply construction and fit wheel rims that are 16 inches in diameter. Tyres have further elements to their code, a set of two numbers and a letter at the end. These tell you the load capacity of each one, as well as the top speed that it can safely reach. An example is the 215 70 R16 100H. These have a maximum load capacity of 800kg for each tyre, with a top speed of 210km/h.
215 70 R16 tyres are suited to an array of different makes and models, including small 4WDs and vans. Some of these are high end vehicles, while others are more economical options. The price of the tyres will vary depending on the quality and the brand.
Some models that can fit 215 70 16 tyres include the Daewoo Winstorm, the Daihatsu Rocky, the Ford Transit, the Holden Captiva, the Honda CR-V, the Hyundai Tucson, the Kia Sportage and the Lexus RX.
Because each driver's circumstances are different, you may find a different tyre size more suitable. Something like the 225 65 R16 will give you more width and a shorter braking distance.
