"Inch Up" may be done in several ways.
The most popular methods are:
- Plus Zero
This method utilizes the same wheel diameter as Original Equipment (OE) but incorporates a tyre with a larger than OE section width and smaller than OE aspect ratio. For example, replacing an OE 175/70R14 tyre (on a 5.5-inch wheel) with a 195/60R14 tyre would be a proper Plus Zero fitment. Note that this practice may require a replacement wheel in order to maintain proper rim width for the new tyre.
- Plus One
This method utilizes a one-inch larger diameter wheel in conjunction with a tyre of a one-step lower aspect ratio. An example of an appropriate Plus One fitment is to replace an OE 175/70R13 tyre (575mm overall diameter) with a 185/60R14 tyre (578mm overall diameter). Note that this method always requires a replacement wheel.
- Plus Two
This method utilizes a two-inch larger diameter wheel in conjunction with a tyre of a two-step lower aspect ratio. An example of an appropriate Plus Two fitment is to replace an OE 175/70R13 tyre (2575mm overall diameter) with a 195/50R15 tyre (576mm overall diameter).
