The front tire must be between 305 and 355 mm wide, and the rear tyre must be between 365 and 380 mm wide. The diameter of the wheel rim must be between 328 and 332 mm (13") and the diameter of the wheels themselves must not exceed 660 mm (with dry-weather tires) or 670 mm (with wet-weather tires). The tires feature four symmetrical longitudinal grooves, which must be at least 14 mm wide and 2.5 mm deep. The tire manufacturers deliver new tires matching the specific track and the vehicle behaviour for virtually every grand prix.

### How long does it take for a tire to be manufactured?

For a passenger car it takes about 25 minutes to manufacture 1
tire. This includes both vulcanization and curing processes. For
larger off-road or truck tires it could take up to 24 hours or
longer to produce a single tire. Its the curing process that takes
the most time. The vulcanizing process only takes 10 minutes for a
passenger car tire but increases by some minute the larger the size
of the tire.
