How Fast Can U Go?

Im sori pple but i can't do more than 110 km/h within lagos with my nissan sunny 1989 whose tyre is 13. i do 140 km/h with my mum's bus which tyre is 14. Is it safe cos i think going faster with small tyre, it's gonna burst but some don't agree with me though.

Must u have big tyreslike 14,15 or 16 to be able to do like 150 km/h?

Bydway, what speed can u recommend for different tyres?

I wanna get a different car so i want to have a tyre size in mind.

How fast can one go?!

Understanding your vehicle and its momentum is the initial key. Speed doesn't necessarily mean you are going fast and save time. Dragging isn't reality.

My bad!!!  I am sorry.  Was just trying to be helpful. Post was reflectively conclusive.

The car is safe, even if it was designed to roll on bicycle wheels.  You can't be better opinionated than the design engineers that prototyped it lest you should be working there (no insult).  Whatever was fitted by the manufacturer is optimised with least amount of trade-offs.

Peace.

This is where the misunderstanding comes in. I am not saying i can't do it. All im saying isi is it safe with that size of tyre. I may say i am the no1 fan of fast driving in this place hon.

If you don't understand what i am saying, just ask for more explanation and i will give. but not by u dissing. JUst in case, my engine ain't lazy. IT does 125km/h everyday. Just trying to know if the tyre is safe. I just bought new ones though and i don't wanna be tempted to commit suicide. MERRY XMAS HON

Poster has a lazy engine.  The topic is slightly  off from the initial post.  Read it up!  I think it's synonymous with the wear and tear through age/use. Topic sentence differs from the initial post.

Surely this depends on a lot of factors.

The size of the tyre has nothing to do with it. The speed rating of the tyre is perhaps more important. For the speeds you are thinking of doing I am assuming that the tyres on your car can comfortably accommodate such speeds. Check you tyres for the speed rating to be on the safe side. But on another note if you have a tyre on a 13' wheel, you probably will not be in a very powerful car capable of very high speeds anyway. There are obviously exceptions to that rule. Yours probably comes with a tyre with rating in bold.
