Current Topic:
What is a 185/70 R14 (88T) tire?
I found your loan calculator very helpful and informative. Thank you.

Could someone educate me the meaning of a 185/70 R14 (88T) tire?  What is S + M? Threadwear 360, Traction A, Temperature B?

One more question, if the friction is perportional to the normal force, why bother to use super wide tires as in Indy or F-1 racing?

Thank you in advance.
