    Default Suggest Tyre Size Alto Vxr - Imed requiment

    Aoa,

    Recently i bought alto vxr (used) , tires are required to be changed. Searched on this forum got confused about selection of Tyre ..people suggesting
    1. 155/65/13
    2. 165/70/R12 (few recommending)

    .
    Currently vehicle have alloy of 13 and same goes for tire. I will shift to steel rims if i will go for 12. My priority that it should not be heavy on suspension plus steering should be normal.
    Kindly suggest me tire size with brand. I need to buy in a day or so.

    Thank you,
    Love Live Pakistan....

    Use 145/80 r12 if you don't want extra burden on suspension and want light steering. 165/70r12 will harden steering and performance of suspension will decrease. And stay away from these aloy rims which are chinese made and heavier than stock rims. Try to get japanese steel rims in 12inch size.
    Im telling you on account of my personal experience. Switched to 165/70r12 and now I regret it.

    I switched to alloy rims with 165 tyres. After a few months my shocks gave away and needed to replace them. I noticed that wheels would simply drop in a pothole and shock absorbers stopped providing the dampening they should because alloys are wider and weight of wheels increases owing to wider tyres.
    The moment I switched back to stock rims I felt a very noticeable change in suspension.
    But the steering is still hard and it sometimes gets painful when making tight turns while parking.
