Front Tire Width

What you do:

Choose the narrowest tire you can that still gives you the steering control you need.


Factors to consider:

1. Tire width ranges from 6 - 19 inches.

2. The narrower the tire, the less it weighs.

The HiPerMath equation is:

tire weight = tire diameter + tire width - 10

3. Drag racing cars have very narrow front tires, since they only need enough control to keep the car straight.
