rolling friction of the tire and does help to achieves better
fuel economy than cross/bias ply tires
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.
profile tire thens to be more stiff/hard bumpy then normal comfort tires mainly due to
their side walls been reduce to prevent side movement of the car especially when
