Here is my thought process:
  • Tires are stretched when the bead is pulled further out.
  • This extra width comes from deflection of the sidewall causing it to be a less steep angle.
  • A sidewall at an angle less than one on a narrower rim would be shorter in overall height.
  • The shorter sidewall height would equate to a smaller rolling diameter.

This smaller rolling diameter is what worries me.

Thoughts?
