Plus-sizing in the tire industry is the growing practice of replacing a vehicle’s original equipment wheel size with a larger diameter wheel and replacing the tire with a lower aspect ratio tire of the same diameter. This practice is normally associated with aftermarket sales, and there is a growing trend for vehicle dealerships to fit these larger...

... Here, RV represents rotational velocity in radians per second, S v represents the speed of the vehicle in miles per hour and R represents the radius of the wheel in meters, not to be confused with the radius of the brake rotor. The radius of the wheel used in this study is based on Daws, J. W., et al. [12] Chevrolet Avalanche wheel radius of 0.389m. Using Equation 1, the calculated rotational velocities from speeds of 25mph, 55mph, and 75mph are 29rad/s, 63rad/s, and 86rad/s respectively. ...
