Low Profile Tires

A short sidewall and a wide tread, two of the primary characteristics of the low profile tire, make the low profile tire great for two things: handling and performance. The shorter sidewall allows for a longer rim which in turn allows for bigger brakes that enable you to stop more quickly. The wider tread, meanwhile, allows for better road grip, which results in better stability when turning a corner. A lot of people also prefer the look of low profile tires, which many think is sleeker than traditional tires.More >

Tires By Vehicle

Tires By Size

Section Width

Measured in millimeters from the outer sidewall to the inner sidewall at the widest point when mounted.

Aspect Ratio

The ratio between the height of the sidewall and its Section Width, expressed as a percentage. The lower the number, the lower the "profile" of the tire.

Wheel Diameter

Most wheel rim diameters are measured in inches, and are known as "inch rim" sizes. These are found on most cars, vans, SUVs and light trucks. Some heavy trailers, van and trucks use a half-inch measure. In addition, some rims are measured in millimeters. It's very important that your tire and wheel diameter match exactly. This should be confirmed before installation.
Since tires act like part of the suspension to absorb bumps in the road, the shorter, stiffer sidewalls of low profile tires don't absorb as much of the impact, making for a rougher ride. Also, having thin sidewalls can sometimes result in rapid deflation and/or wheel damage if you hit a pothole.
