Can somebody explain the tire side please?

300 is the width. the next number is measurement for the tire's sidewall, which is the percentage of the tire's width.
So, according to my calculation, the tire's sidewall is 2,040inch tall. WTH?!?! *confused*
I'm guessing it's overall diameter.. But yeah, it's still pretty stupid.

300mm wide, 680mm total diameter on 18"?

18" is 457.2 and i cbf working out the 'profile'.. Anyone else care to? Lol
