The Importance of Your Tires
Your tires are one of the most important things on your car. Your tires determine how your car drives and feels. The correct tires allow you to use all of the available power of the engine and they are the deciding factor on how well your car brakes and corners. The designers of your vehicle’s tires have carefully determined the way to make the best tire for your vehicle.
Most people’s main goal when it comes to tires is to do whatever they can to increase the performance and handling of their vehicle. We want our customers to know they can choose aftermarket tires and still get a high performance set if they know what to look for. Just because a tire is bigger, it doesn’t always mean that it is better for you. You want to keep in mind that there is a perfect size of tire out there for your vehicle that will meld well with the original engineering of your vehicle.
Here at Auto Image, we know that many people want to choose a tire that not only performs well but also complements the look of their car. This is why we consider ourselves wheel stylists instead of a simple retailer of tires. We want to help you find a set of tires that you can put on your car and have pride in. We won’t just offer you wheels that look great – we’ll offer you wheels and tires that complement your vehicle’s size and improve its performance.
How Big Should You Go?
When deciding whether to get a bigger tire for your vehicle, keep a few things in mind. You can increase a tire’s size by increasing the length or width of the tire contact area. If you want to lengthen the contact area then you will have to increase the diameter of the tire.
If you lengthen the tire contact area too much then you are effectively lengthening the gearing and this makes your vehicle slower.
Moreover, the last thing to keep in mind when lengthening the wheel contact area significantly is that you are altering the ABS calibration, affecting the feel of the braking system.
