Doubt on altering a car

Hey Guys, Can we replace the tyre of a car with some other tyre (with different thickness)...? I love the body design of Suzuki Swift. But i want the tyre thickness to be increased. can it be done? Waiting for ur reply's 😀

As far as 'can' is concerned, it should be possible. But from my common sense based guess; I think it will affect the overall performance of the car.

What is your logic? Unable to get it.

I think it can be done. Thicker tires may be harder to turn while parking and while driving at low speed because you would have more surface contact and therefore more traction. Also, i am not sure of how thick you are thinking of going but be careful because with thicker tires you run the risk if touching your fender or front bumper when you lock or turn. This is why cars designed to take broader tyres usually come with a body kit that flares the fenders and bumbers.
Advantages of wider tyres are better traction and better performance on wet road. You will have to get rims to match the thickness though 😎

Also you would be shelling out more for petrol. This is because the car has to produce more power to overcome the tyre-road friction due to the increased surface area.
