The video of the country’s first-ever Maruti Suzuki Jimny with 20-inch wheels has been shared on Instagram by monga_tyres on their profile. The video shows a black-colored Jimny with a stock front wheel and a 20-inch rear wheel. The wheel has a 10-spoke design and is equipped with a fairly low-profile tire. It should be noted that only the rear left wheel was fitted with the aftermarket wheel and tire setup because the owner might have been exploring options for his vehicle. Overall, it can be noted that the SUV looks pretty good with this setup.

As mentioned the SUV may look very cool with the aftermarket wheels and tyres it has to be noted that fitting bigger wheels and tires on cars can have both advantages and disadvantages. So if you are curious about what are some of these advantages and disadvantages then here they are.

Improved aesthetics

Larger wheels can enhance the overall appearance of a car, giving it a more aggressive or sporty look. This can be appealing to car enthusiasts who prioritize style.

Enhanced handling

Bigger wheels and tires can offer improved grip and traction, especially in corners. This can enhance the car’s handling and stability, resulting in a more responsive driving experience.

Increased ground clearance

If the larger wheels are accompanied by taller tires, they can increase the ground clearance of the car. This can be beneficial for off-road driving or navigating rough terrain, preventing potential damage to the undercarriage.

Customization options

Larger wheels provide a wider range of customization options, allowing car owners to choose from various designs, finishes, and materials.

Reduced ride comfort

Bigger wheels with shorter sidewall tires offer less cushioning and can result in a stiffer ride. This can transmit more vibrations and impacts from the road to the passengers, leading to a less comfortable driving experience.

Increased unsprung weight

Larger wheels and tires are heavier, which increases the unsprung weight of the car. This can negatively impact the car’s suspension system, leading to decreased ride quality and potentially affecting handling and fuel efficiency.

Reduced fuel efficiency

Bigger wheels and tires generally have higher rolling resistance due to their increased weight and larger contact area. This can result in decreased fuel efficiency, as the engine has to work harder to overcome this resistance.

Expensive upgrades

Upgrading to larger wheels and tires can be costly. Besides the initial purchase, there might be additional expenses for modifications, such as fender adjustments or suspension modifications, to accommodate the larger size.

Increased vulnerability to damage

Bigger wheels and lower-profile tires are more prone to damage from potholes, curbs, or other road hazards. The reduced sidewall height offers less protection against impacts, increasing the risk of wheel or tire damage.

It’s important to note that the advantages and disadvantages can vary depending on the specific car model, driving conditions, and personal preferences. It’s recommended to consult with experts or professionals to determine the best wheel and tire size for a specific vehicle and intended use.
