Incorrect tyre sizes

By David

Did you know that you can have the wrong sized tyres fitted to your car?  The manufactures recommend the correct tyres for a vehicle but you can chose to have different ones fitted, or sometimes they are fitted by the garage incorrectly and often without you even realising.

Converting to a different size of tyre is possible, but it must be done within strict criteria. If you get it wrong, the consequences can be awful and can be a massive cause for concern.

Often if you are wanting to change the size of wheels fitted to your car then you may also need to upgrade other parts of the car too.  The cars braking and suspension are linked to the diameter of the wheels that are on the car, so that is why it is important to remember that you should remain as close to the original wheel diameter as possible.
