Some drivers may prefer a size other than 295/80R22.5 tyres. A narrower tyre will give you a quieter and smoother ride, as well as helping to boost the fuel economy. A wider tyre can decrease the braking distance and improve the handling of the vehicle, making it a great option for those drivers who are concerned for their safety.
