Motoring guru Tim Pomroy has all the answers...
OPEN ROAD READER ROSS WILSON ASKS: “What is the
difference in a vehicle having 17-inch wheels and 20-inch
wheels? The model I am considering has these options.”
Visual considerations aside, engineers often use a larger
wheel and a low-profile tyre to improve a vehicle’s handling.
Compare the tyres of a sports or high-performance model to
those of the base model and you will notice a difference.
When manufacturers increase the size of the wheel and tyre
combination they need to stay close to the base tyre’s overall
diameter to minimise speedometer error and expensive
changes to the vehicle’s gearing. That means they need to fit a
tyre that has a lower profile or smaller sidewall.
Side-on, a low profile tyre is much thinner between the
inside diameter (where it fits the wheel) and the outside
diameter (where it meets the road). It also has less built-in
sidewall flex than a similarly sized high-profile one, so fitting
these tyres – usually to a wider wheel – can improve a vehicle’s
handling and help create a sportier drive. It’s most noticeable
when cornering at higher speeds as it can give the steering a
more direct feel.
But there can be downsides. The first line of defence in a
vehicle’s bump-absorption armoury is its tyres and low profile
ones transmit more harshness from potholes and so forth,
especially if the suspension hasn’t been properly calibrated for
their use. Some brands do a much better job of tuning
suspension to our road conditions, so make sure you test-drive
the different variants.
Low-profile tyres are also often more expensive than their
high-profile counterparts and their lifespan is shorter because
the rubber compound they’re made from is usually softer.
