    will recommend you the stock size, it works the best for fuel economy and suspension setup... still if you want the bigger size than here are the caclulations

    with 155-80-13
    your overall diameter is 22.76inch

    with 185-70-13
    your overall diameter is 23.19inch
    and your speedo is 1.8 percent slow i.e. if original speed is 100 km/h speedo will be showing 98.1km/h

    with 185-65-1
    your overall diameter is 23.46inch
    and your speedo is 3.0 percent slow i.e. if original speed is 100 km/h speedo will be showing 97.0km/h

    but than again the speedos by stock are usually a bit fast hence you will not be having significant difference

    well bad for your suspension, i dont think so that much, i have used massive tires on corolla, although it affected the economy and stuff but suspension was fine, as afar as meter is concerned, its very difficult to calibrate, though i did it on myne but is a tedious process, as i said by stock usually speedos are fast and with your 185/65/14 tires your speedo will go slow by 3% and i think it will be balanced, still get the tires than contact me, i have gps speedo, we can see the exact error from it.

    Waleed bhai, rims gifted to you on your birthday? do the car a favour, leave them looking as nice as they currently are. the ONLY rims found decent till today are the genuine Toyota ones. those i think are 17".

    go for 185/65/14
    I have them in my Yaris. No difference in drive comfort if tyres are soft.
    Meter readings are also almost the same. Checked it on speed gun 7th avenue .

    waleed check some more rims out. above ones are just ok.
    you can look for some original used ones in RWP, since they are lighter.

    The Chinese ones are as heavy as the local RIMs. only shashkaa nothing else!
