What happens if a tire is too wide for a wheel?
If you go too wide the tires can wear unevenly. Tires that are too wide for the wheels tend to bulge in the middle of the tread causing them to wear excessively in the middle. Going too wide can also cause clearance issues. The tires can end up rubbing on the fender wells and on suspension components causing damage.

Can you put different width tires on same rim?
Tires are a part of the wheel setup. For instance, your vehicle has a set size of rims, but you can buy different sizes of tires to fit those rims, as long as the middle of the tires is the correct size. That being said, a vehicle with bigger rims will often be able to fit larger tires than other vehicles.
Does rim width need to be exact?
For your safety, and for the optimal ride, your rim width and tire size must be compatible. Why? Because the rim width has a direct impact on your tire’s contact patch, which changes how the tire interacts with the road and how your vehicle handles.
Do bigger tires give a smoother ride?
As a general rule, bigger wheels result in a rougher ride. Switching to a smaller wheel and a thicker tire can give you a smoother ride without any major modifications to your car. However, if you go too crazy and change your wheel size too much, it can cause some problems.

How much mpg will I lose with bigger tires?
With today’s new tires, there is virtually no difference in mpg due to tire size. As with many questions related to cars and tires, the answer to this question can have nuances, conditions, and variations.
Do wider tires wear out faster?
Yes. This is because, at the equal pressure, the casing tension of the wider tyre is higher and the contact patch is shorter and wider. The first of these factors means less energy is lost to casing flex, and the second reduces rolling resistance because the shorter, wider contact patch reduces frictional losses.
Do wider tires affect gas?
Increasing the width of a tire can impact fuel economy as well. Wider tires create a larger contact patch, the area of the tire actually touching the road. While this is good for performance, it can create a higher resistance to coasting, meaning that the engine will have to use more power and fuel to maintain speed.
Is it better to have wider tires in the front or back?
A wider front tyre makes sense in many applications, however, when handling and ride comfort are considered. A wider tyre will generally provide better cornering traction than a narrower one, assuming appropriate inflation pressure.
