What Are The Benefits of Plus-Sizing?
Besides seeing more beautiful rim and less boring black tire, another advantage of plus-sizing to larger diameter wheels is that your car will handle better and feel like it has sharper reflexes. This is because shorter sidewalls of low profile tires are stiffer and don’t flex as much – resulting in much less sway and wobbling of the sidewalls.
Lower-profile tires can be turned in a different direction with much less drag or effort. In short, this means tire responsiveness is quick and crisp when you turn the steering wheel, without mush and delay. Larger diameter wheels are usually wider as well, enabling wider tires to be mounted, so there’s more rubber on the road for increased traction.
