If you are unsure of what type of tire and wheel types you should get for your truck, here’s a rundown of the different types to help you make the right choice:

 High Performance Wheels

If you’re opting for high-performance tires, you’ll probably want to include some new wheels to enhance both appearance and performance. To assure the right fit, you’ll need to make sure that you’ve got the proper replacement wheel size, dimension and load-carrying capacity. Narrow Rims Result in an improvement in ride quality, but may sacrifice some of the tire’s ultimate performance capability.

Wide Rims

Wide Rims Increase your vehicle’s stability, steering response and cornering capability. A Yokohama quick tip—use a rim width which is 90% as wide as the tread width of a performance tire for street driving. This will provide a good balance between performance and ride quality.

Mid-Range Rim

Mid-Range Rim Widths Provide a balance between handling capabilities and ride quality. The wheel’s width influences handling and ride quality. Always choose a rim width within the range of the tire’s acceptable rim width specification.
