Nissan Qashqai 2014: Risks with low profile tyres?

Asked by Gil May

Regarding low-profile tyres on the Nissan Qashqai, several people had these tyres on new vehicles that had to travel unsealed roads and potholed bitumen and the tyres and rims soon were seriously damaged and had to be replaced. My new Holden ute with low-profile tyres damaged three tyres and rims in three days. I find the deeper the tyre sidewall the better ride as tyres absorb a lot of the bump severity and corrugations giving better and safer driving.

Low-profile tyres are more vulnerable to damage and generate more road noise.
