Why isn’t the bigger tire, the better?

With the younger generation of consumer groups in the automobile market, more and more people pay attention to modified cars.

In the eyes of many people, the larger the tire size, the more stable the car will run.

The fact is not that simple.

Are tires really bigger the better?

When mentioning tires, it is necessary to mention the concept of “tire aspect ratio”, that is, the aspect ratio of the tire.

The wider the tire, the larger the contact area with the ground, the better the grip, the better the handling and braking performance.

At the same time, too wide tires will bring greater noise and higher fuel consumption.

In contrast, the tires are narrow, braking and handling are worse, but noise and fuel consumption are better.

Generally speaking, the tires fitted to the vehicle at the factory are sufficient for daily use.

What happens if the tires are changed too big?

If a wide tire is installed, some low-end models may turn over at a slight turn when driving at high speed.

The reason is that these wide tires have too strong grip.

When the car turns left, the grip of the right front wheel suddenly increases.

It will act as a fulcrum to “lift up” the entire car.

It’s still the original one

When car owners change their rims, they shouldn’t blindly seek bigger ones.

In addition, car owners should not be greedy for cheap, and must choose the appropriate size from a regular, big-name manufacturer.

In order to improve driving pleasure and safety, it is reasonable for those who love to drive to choose large tires.

Smaller-displacement family cars are only used as a means of transportation, and standard tires are sufficient for daily life.

Purchasing according to your actual needs is the wisest choice.
