TECH CENTER - PLUS SIZING FOR WHEELS

When it comes to wheels on your vehicle, bigger usually looks better.  However, it's important that the overall diameter of the wheel and tire remain the same (within three percent) of the OEM wheel and tire combination.  This is because most vehicles today are calibrated for a specific overall diameter - using the wrong diameter can cause incorrect speed and odometer readings, improper shifting, and even braking problems.

Maintaining the right overall diameter can be achieved by plus sizing.  By using tires with a lower profile, a larger wheel can be used without significantly changing the overall wheel and tire diameter.  Low-profile tires not only look better, but perform better as well by enhancing stability and steering. 

When you order with Wheel Max, you can always be sure to recieve wheels and tires correctly sized for your your vehicle.
