According to regulations, the front tires must be in the range of 305 to 355 millimetres wide. For rear wheels the range is 365 to 380. There are are no differences in the widths for dry weather and wet tires. Tire diameters do vary, the full wet 2015 Pirelli tires have larger diameter compared to dry ones.
