    Bigger wheels tyre preasure

    I changed the wheels on my W210 pretty soon after I got the car, but I've always been in doubt as to what the tyre presure should be since I've gone for bigger wheels. The car originally came with 16" Mercedes Fidis alloys (cant remember the tyre size). I now have Staggered 18" AMG...

    Hello After a service and a judder that I thought was a wheel weight its my disc on a brake that's warped? I think the current ones are 330mm can I fit 350mm ones They appear to me actually cheaper than 330 ones and I assume slightly better? or I can opt for drilled / grooved aftermarket...

    Bigger tyres vs gear ratios

    I'm currently running 205-55-16s (632mm dia) and am considering changing to 225-55-16s (654mm dia). Tyre calculator says this will give a 3.5% increase in diameter. My math is crap but I reckon the wheel will travel an extra 70mm per revolution...

    F1 Scandal takes a bigger twist

    Sounds like Bernie insisted someone crashed to get a red car on the Podium. Oh Ok, just made that up, but someone on t'internet will see it and it will become folklore by end of next week. No doubt Max can have a few more public dirty washing episodes before he finally shuffles off to...

    why does it get bigger and bigger?

    Ok.. heres some Food for thought.. As every model gets replaced by a new one, over the last 20 years, the interiors ad exteriors are getting bigger and bigger... the interior at a faster rate than the exteriors due to better packaging etc etc... But we all have pretty much stayed the same...

    bigger wheels / low profiles - again!!

    There's been lots of threads on this subject. Going to bigger wheels with lower profile tyres will reduce the ride quality due to the smaller height of the sidewall. No arguments from me on that one. But, here's a question..... Suppose, you go to a larger diameter wheel but keep the same...
