This in turn ensures a high friction and thus an excellent drivability. Especially on dry asphalt can reach their full potential tire of this width. Depending on the dimension offer tires with 225 mm width either a high degree of comfort, or a particularly good cornering stability. The latter improves with decreasing tire height, which, however, is also the driving comfort worse.
