Second, pay attention to tire pattern, tread patterns on the car tire, in addition to play beautiful effect, the performance of the tire also has a great impact. Often in Shenzhen car, should choose those drainage good tyres, such as patches of regular pattern; to off-road and long-distance car, you can choose bulk pattern.

Finally, if you are not satisfied with the original vehicle controllability, could be lower than the flat tire, on many models, one of the most effective methods to improve the appearance of the vehicle and steering performance is low than the flat tire replacement. Each style tires have their specific function, so in the choice of tires, should ask what styles of tire how kind of driving habits, so that the car driving is safer, spend the money on the tire is also worth.

In recent years, the development trend of foreign car tires is more and more use of large width, large diameter and low flat tire. At present, domestic cars are mostly made of small width, small inner diameter and high flat ratio tires. Because of the long tire wall and strong buffering capacity, the tire with high flat ratio is relatively comfortable, but the feeling of the road surface is poor, and the lateral resistance is weak when cornering. On the contrary, the tire with low flat ratio and large inner diameter has shorter tread and wider tread. Therefore, the ground area is large, the tire can bear the pressure is also large, the road reaction is very sensitive, cornering resistance ability is strong, so that the controllability of the vehicle is greatly enhanced. At present, the largest flat tire in domestic mass production cars is 225/55R16, while many imported luxury cars or sports sedan tires reach 225/45R17, and some even reach 245/40R18. The vehicle width, diameter, lower than the flat tire, but strong maneuverability, visual effects and give people a strong feeling. Generally speaking, the tires which are used by the factory are the best specifications after repeated tests. If a car owner wants to change the tire size, it must be carried out under the guidance of professionals, not random, because it involves a lot of problems, a little negligence may cause harm to the safety of driving. In addition, the low flat will appear more "delicate" than the tire, in the use of the process should pay more attention and care.
