    Exclamation Need help in choosing Rims for City 2007

    Dear all

    I have Honda city 2007 (LK-6) .. Originally it has rims of size 13".. I want to install rims of 15" or 16" in it.. but these days, with the original tyre size, it gives me millage of 17 km/ltr within lahore and I have read in other forums that installing alloy rims increases fuel consumption.. I want to know From where in lahore can I get light weight alloy rims in maximum size so that it least affects fuel consumption ??

    Also I have read that the speed o meter is calibrated with 13" rims and if the tyre size increses, it does not show correct speed rather shows lesser speed than the one on which car runs..can it be re-calibrated?

    I will be very grateful for this help..

    Regards
    Umair Zaman

    You can go for bigger rim size with lower profile tires as long as your tire diameter remains the same.

    Try the "I am tyre guru" thread in wheels and tyres section and search for "tire size calculator" on Google.

    Peace!

    Recalibrating the speedometer is pretty mathematical and not available here.

    Plz go for 15s and nothing larger then that, make sure your tires are not too wide, and the diameter remains the same or slightly larger, then your fuel average wont be affected much.
