Redial Ply Tires

Redial Ply: are series of plies of cord reinforces a tires at 90 degrees to the direction of travel. This help reduce the rolling friction of the tire and does help to achieves better fuel economy than cross/bias ply tires

Low Profile

Low profile: This term refer to the aspect ratio of the tyre side wall. The ratio is gain by Section Height/Section weidth=Aspect Ratio. Determine the aspect ration of a P255/50/R16 tire.
