Question Description

can I put 4 new tires on my car that are 1 inch larger if they all match without damaging the car?

Tutor Answer

School: UC Berkeley

Wheels: Larger means greater unsprung weight and matching tires means less sidewall to absorb road defects. I personally wouldn't go for anything lower than an aspect ratio of 40. 17" wheels are sufficiently large for aesthetics and will give you a wide variety of tire choices without disrupting the handling characteristics negatively
