I find it interesting that people are under the impression that the width of the tire, all other factors the same, creats the larger contact patch by virtue of width but what about patch length? Which tire, with the only variable being the wheel diameter, creats the larger contact patch? the 15 or the 16? this is on an identical car, by the way. thanks for answering. I hope more fanatics chip in.
