What: Tires are categorized by their type of construction. The two main types are: bias ply and radial ply. They both share the same basic construction characteristics except for the orientation of the cord in the sidewall. The bias ply tire has the cords for the sidewall running from bead to bead on about a 45-degree angle.
What Wheel To Choose: The selection should be determined by function. Rim diameter and rim width are dictated by the load to be carried and clearance for the brake assemblies and suspension. Anything larger is chosen for the sake of style. The current styling trend toward oversized wheels comes with a number of adverse side effects.
