Wide or narrow tyres? What you choose will affect your driving...

Wide or narrow tyres? What you choose will affect your driving...
Many drivers want their summer tyres to look flashier than their winter equivalents. That is why wider and lower tyres are usually selected for the summer, whereas narrower tyres are commonly used in the winter. The tyre choice affects the car’s appearance, driving comfort, and many other characteristics. In Central Europe, car owners usually have two sets of rims: one for the summer and another for the winter. A common choice is to use slightly larger and more expensive rims for the summer tyres.
