Customer Question

Can anyone tell me how much horsepower is lost in running 11r24.5 vs 11r22.5 all other things being equal?

according to our tire guy the 24.5 actually has less rolling resistance. so HP loss should be minimal. there more expensive and less available out on the road so less run them. 11r24.5 are about 10lbs heavier then a 11r22.5 but you have a bout 600lbs more capacity on a 24.5 with the same load rating as a 22.5. aluminum or steel wheels? hope this helps
