Replacement Tire can be prevented from hampering the performance of brake and odometer by ensuring that the similar tire size and type that came bundled up with the vehicle during initial factory setup is purchased. The tire diameter significantly affects the functioning of wheel speed sensors that have a bearing on the brake and traction control mechanism. Mismatched front and rear tire size will thwart the performance of antilock brakes.
Adequate drive balance between axles can be maintained if the replacement tires are of same size as that of original, otherwise the risk of slippage between axles arise which lead to improper vehicle control and wearing out of tire prematurely. The accuracy of odometer reading will be at stake if replacement tires turn out to be wider than original. A radial tire and a bias ply tire respectively on the driver’s and passenger’s side front should not be used. Tires should always be purchased in sets of four.
