Thats the first smile ive had today. I was just wondering what would happen if u tested say a 235/75/15 to a 145/82/12 ( i am giving the actual tire for the people who need this) using gears in the transmission that would make the speeds equal at the same rpms. The advantage of weight, width, and even the lowering of the car, should to me be maybe a big difference.. instead i got lessons on how u figure diameters, speedo errors, etc, etc.
PS please dont say the make a special 18 inch tire that is only 2 inches wide so that the width would be narrower for a 18. I really just wanted common tires in standard sizes. I know, but it seems if u dont put every little thing in, somebody will go down the weird road.
