“go as narrow as possible. ” so my Toyota Corolla on 195 are better than suv’s and trucks that are 235+… sorry but while they just leave the intersection and go around corners I’m still spinning my tires and have to go slower around corners. OK so there is a weight difference then what about other fwd cars with wider tires performing better than me. yes i put snow tires on every year.

Alan Chan says:

Your skate analogy does not apply. tires rotate forward to propel the car. skating pushes off at almost 45 degree angle to propel the person forward.

Also, a smaller rim and larger tire does not mean your rim + tire combo will automatically be lighter than a larger rim + tire combo. You need to factor in the weight of the tires.

Wider tires are better for braking on snow & ice because it provides a larger contact surface thus providing more frictional resistance.

My summer tyres/wheels are OEM 215/45R17. Wanted to get another set of rims of winter tyres to save on the cost of mounting and balancing twice a year. Also the size I was switching to for winter tyres had a wider range of choice of winter tyres + 30% lower prices. Looked up what the smallest rim/tyre size was according to my car’s manufacturer. Went with 205/55R16.
