    Seen some 'older' pre-facelift x5's about and have wondered why they have smaller tires and narrower rear tires? The X5 is rear drive bias, which means the rear is doing the majority of the work. More rubber in the back gives better traction and better handling in a curve.

    That is why some models come staggered i. I'm sure some of the regs on here can come up with something. The primary reason why our rear tires are wider is appearance. It just looks cooler. Last edited by Ranger; at Ok, well that response is hard to refute. But let me try to flesh the point out a bit. Look at heavy duty vehicles that are more industrial fleet oriented then consumer oriented. Many trucks and vans fit in this category.

    Look at the width of their tires, are they as wide as our tires? No, they are not. That's because wide tires don't have utilitarian advantages, they only have an advantage in that wide tires appeal to consumers. In fact, there are some disadvantages of wide tires. If the wide tires had a functional advantage then you would see them on fleet vehicles of similar weight. Look again at the fleet oriented vehicles, do they have wider tires in the rear? That tells us that it's a consumer issue, not a functional issue.

    And if this theory was correct, most front drive cars would have wider tires in front. Name a single one that does. In fact, it's the front tires that do the most work because they support more weight, and they control turning the vehicle. Consider this from a perspective of tire wear. Tire wear on street vehicles is a goat screw because they run an alignment intended to create understeer, that is to say if you take a corner too fast the front tires will slip and you will go off straight.

    So OEM alignment settings are deliberately unbalanced. That makes tire wear a little confusing because the tires alignment is deliberately unbalanced. By unbalanced I mean front vs. But in a race car the alignment is fine tuned to be as optimal as possible, so it's a pretty good measure of how much strain are on the tires. And front engine rear drive race cars always wear out their front tires first. So the reason we have big fat tires, and the reason that our rear tires are fatter then our fronts, is all consumer preferences.

    Otherwise we would have the same narrow tires that fleet vehicles of similar weight use. Thread Tools Show Printable Version. BB code is On.
