What is the point of fitting wider tyres on the steer axle?

Hello,

There may be many reasons why wider tyres should be fitted at the front of a vehicle. The main reason is for a load requirements and stability on the steer axle. Indeed, trucks are increasingly sophisticated and heavier or they have high cabs. This causes more weight transfer to the front axle for the whole rig. Fitting wider tyres means the front axle can carry more weight. This ensures even wear and as such maintains the mileage potential and tyre performance.
