205 VS 225 Tires? Advantages/Disadvantages Sign In

 
I'm considering some tires.

Considering switching to 225 or sticking with the stock 205 width.



What are the benefits and disadvantages of selecting a wider tire?



Thanks

Almost no exceptions but to stay with the car's suggested tire size.

Taller or wider you mess up OE performance well thought out by the car makers,

That tire is not just wider. That is a ratio measurement and the overall tire is larger/taller. That effects many things like

reduces horsepower
reduces fuel mileage in local driving
changes speedometer
effects ABS braking system
effects suspension and handling detrimentally
fitment to wheel will be different
