Bonus info (because we love math)!
Want to figure out how wide a tire is in inches? Just multiply the width by
the magical number .03937.
Example Tire Size: 235/45/17
235 x .03937 = 9.25 inches wide (This is the width at the widest. Usually
the tread itself is slightly less, because the tire "balloons" slightly at
Want to figure out the overall height of a tire in inches? Just do the math
below. It's easy!
Example Tire Size: 235/45/17
235 x .45 = 105.75 (That's the total height of the sidewall in
millimeters. Now we need to convert it to inches.)
105.75 x .03937 = 4.16 inches
Now since the diameter of the entire tire includes two sidewalls and a
wheel diameter, we have to add them all up...
17 + 4.16 + 4.16 = 25.32 inches

Tire Rack Tire Test - Raising the Bar: Testing New Ultra High Performance All-Season Tires
Tire companies always work to improve on successful designs. Many succeed,
but not all. Continental hit a home run with the ContiExtremeContact Ultra
High Performance All-Season tire but then challenged their design team to
improve dry road handling and road manners without sacrificing winter
traction. Their solution is the new ExtremeContact DWS.
Pirelli faced a similar challenge with the popular P Zero Nero M+S as they
developed the P Zero Nero All Season.
Did Continental and Pirelli succeed in raising the bar? Watch the video to

Tire Rack - Winter Testing at the Arctic Circle: Ultra High Performance All-Season Tires
Our three-part Arctic Circle winter series from January of 2009 concludes
with this evaluation of the effectiveness of Ultra High Performance
All-Season tires -- during the height of the winter season -- in Northern
These tires' three-season focus usually comes at some expense in the fourth
season's wintertime traction levels. Our test revealed just how much, or
little, snow traction is provided in these all-season designs by comparing
the Bridgestone Potenza RE960AS Pole Position, Continental ExtremeContact
DWS, Goodyear Eagle F1 All Season, Michelin Pilot Sport A/S Plus and
Yokohama Avid W4s.
Tyre Safety: Premium v. Budget Tyres Wet Braking Test - Continental Car Tyres
Choosing a tyre can be difficult. They look similar and until you get them
on the car, you don't know how they are going to perform out on the road.
Watch this wet braking test to see the difference between a set of premium
tyres and a set of cheaper budget tyres that look similar but perform very
differently on the road.
The budget tyre took an average of 14 metres or 3 and 1/2 car lengths extra
to stop. When the premium tyre had come to a stop, the car on budget tyres
was still travelling at 31mph.

British motorists tend to run summer tyres on their cars all year round,
regardless of the weather. However, as our exclusive comparison test shows,
this can be very dangerous.
We headed to Sweden to compare the performance of summer tyres with winter
tyres on snow and the results were quite shocking.
