This is the tire tendency to follow road irregularities such as groove left by heavy trucks.
Kind of fighting with your steering wheel to change lane or keep it going straight.
Like you're riding on rails that steer the car instead of you! As tramways do!
Larger (245mm + ) low profile tires are more prone to this effect, when the contact patch is wider than it is long, tramlining is more likely to occur.
I think the main reason for tramlining is the tire design.
Some says that more longitudinal grooves in the tire = more tramlining.
In my case, with a 2000 Mustang GT, no sign of tramlining with new Pirelli P7000 245-45-17, but as they wear, it become present.
With Michelin Pilot MXGT H4 245-45-17, there is so much tramlining that it was dangerous.
Just in between with used Michelin Pilot Sport 225-50-17, they tramline but are not dangerous.
With Toyo Observe G0-2 (winter tire ), 205-65-15 , absolutly no tramlining at all, never, in any road condition.
Yes, it does. Plies affect the flexibility of the tire as you steer.
No. Low tire pressure causes poor handling and poor tire wear.

It will fit, but if you are talking about replacing just one tire, I wouldn't recommend it. The shorter profile of the tire will adversely affect handling on corners and possibly straight line handling. If you are replacing 2 tires or all 4 tires then handling won't be affected. On a 2-tire replacement, make sure the new pair is mounted either in the front or the rear -- not one on each. Normally on a 2-wheel replacement it is best to put new tires on the front, as the front tires tend to wear down more quickly.
No, it will be too large a diameter tire. Handling, ride, mileage, & power will suffer. Also your speedometer will be off.
265 on a tire is the width of the tire in mm
Its the weight of the tire!
depends on what kind of tire you are talking about like a bike tire or car tire or a motorcycletire slash /dirt bike tire. be more specific next time. bub!
are you talking about in the hub cap is so yes. it sounds like your talking about the axle nut wich is a no
The door: the number on the tire is its maximum pressure, the number on the load sticker in your car is specific to the car and is set to maximize efficiency, braking, and handling for your vehicle.
The ride and the handling would be poor at best.
Where you hang the spare tire.
The best tire size is 215 70R 16. This size tire offers the best ride and handling, and when properly alligned and balanced, will provide the best longevity.
yes and no you cant go to wide or youll have rubbing and you cant go to thin or youll lose handling i genrally go with a wider tire in the rear and a thinner tire in front
Honda recommends a psi of 33 for the tires. This recommendation is too low and is made for ride comfort, not handling or tire longevity. A combination of 38/40, 40/40, or 40/42 will greatly extend tire life and improve handling. This info comes from rattlebars.com
NO, the 245 tire will be smaller in overall diameter and your speedometer will be off. Handling, ride, power, and fuel economy will be effected.
One size difference would hardly be noticeable to the average driver under normal conditions.
Incorrect tire inflation can affect several things. It can compromise handling, lead to premature tire wear, reduce fuel economy, and may cause damage to the drive train.
It means an automobile tire if you're British.
how much air is in the tire
low tire pressure in one tire
yes you can if you are talking width
The mfg. recommended psi's are listed on the door jamb.I run 35 psi for good tire life and good handling.
Speed rating applies to a tire rating. It is a standard set by the US government for achieving and keeping a specified speed. A higher speed rating means better car handling.
