    The more... the smaller

    I need to make sure that the following sentence is correct. Especially the part after the colon - is it OK as it is or should there be some IS in it?

    "The same tyre behaves differently on different soils: the more yielding and wet the soil, the smaller the diffusion of the specific pressure to sides and the greater the depth of the pressure effect."

    Thanks for any help!

    Re: The more... the smaller

    Gillnetter, thanks a lot for your help. Actually, the pressure we speak of is not referring to the tyres, it is the pressure transmitted to soil - the whole paper is about soil compaction under forest machinery tyres.
