The 2018 Dodge Durango in Strathmore: What Are the Advantages of Larger Wheels?

(Posted on May 28, 2021 at 10:23AM by Josh Lew)
<a href="[Used%2CDodge%2CDurango%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C%2C]"><img src="/images/upload/May_2021/Dodge_durango_wheels.png"alt="White 2018 Dodge Durango driving on a trail with hills in the background"/></a>For most people, the decision to opt for larger wheels is based on esthetics. Bigger (19 or 20-inch) units tend to look more appealing than smaller ones, which may appear disproportionate (especially on a full-size vehicle like the Dodge Durango.) 

The 2018 Durango, for example, owes its attractive appearance - at least in part - to its 20-inch wheels. However, there are other advantages to switching to larger tires. 

More traction

Larger wheels have more overall surface area, which means better contact with the road. This can significantly improve the traction and grip on the pavement, especially when it is wet or icy. 

Better handling around corners and curves

Again, since larger wheels translate to more contact with the ground, a stiffer sidewall, and a wider tread, 20-inchers perform better around corners and on curvy roads.

Better braking

The improved contact with the ground also increases stopping effectiveness. Paired with high-quality brakes, this can dramatically reduce the distance it takes to slow down. The 2018 Dodge Durango includes massive Brembo units, which increase power and help you take full advantage of the larger tire surface area.
