However, it must be understood that such oversized tyres come with their own set of issues. Since these are low-profile tyres, the sidewalls are quite thin. This allows the undulations and bumps from the road to enter the cabin quite easily. There is not enough cushioning effect and the ride quality is negatively affected. Also, the added weight reduces the mileage as the vehicle uses more fuel to generate enough power to move the SUV. Therefore, please keep these factors in mind before you go for large alloys.
