Default Quick question, finally learning about tires.

235/40 ZR17 90W

Can someone confirm I'm reading this right?

235mm wide with a sidewall height of 94mm (40% of width)

Z = outdated speed rating, basically redundant
R = radial

17 = 17in diameter, meaning 17in rims

90 = load rating of 600 kg
W = rated for speed up to 270 km/hr
