ASE, is short for the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence. Since 1972 their independent non-profit organization has worked to improve the quality of vehicle repair and service by testing and certifying automotive professionals.
The tests are no cinch to pass; in fact, usually only two out of every three test takers pass on their first attempt. After passing at least one exam and providing proof of two years of relevant work experience, the test-taker becomes ASE Certified. To remain certified, ASE Certified professionals must be retested every five years.
The numbers in the tire size refer to its width, aspect ratio, and wheel diameter. "185/75R14" means the tire is 185 mm wide, has an aspect ratio (that is, the width divided by the height) of 75%, and fits on a 14" rim.
"R" means radial tire. They're all radials nowadays. Speed ratings are usually inserted before the "R." The most common speed ratings are HR (good for 130mph), VR (149 mph), and ZR (more than 149 mph).
