I heard that putting small sized rear tire increase the mileage is that true? if true how does it makes difference than putting big sized tired to bike?


Thinner the tyre, lesser the friction with the ground,so lesser energy to move the vehicle and so better mileage. However....it is not recommended, the bike manufacturers will not recommend to move to thinner tyres as bikes are only tested with the stock supplies and insurance companies may not accept any claims incase of any accident

  • Also less rotating mass, so takes less energy to get up to speed. – raydowe Apr 4 '17 at 9:49
