Will lower profile tires increae low end torque?
Would going from say a 60 series tire to a 55 series increase low end torque? After all, it is changing the gear ratios, right? Supposedly, going from a 60 to a 50 will make the wheel 1" in diameter smaller.
I'm about to replace my 235/60/16's and curious of my options and if it would be worth the lower profile tires (better handling is a different issue).
Discount Tires has a good price on the Toyo 235/55/16 H rated for $83 installed. I'm debating between those and some Kumhos H rated 235/60's for only $50 each installed.
