    Default new city suitable tyre/wheel size-urgent help pls

    Dear all expert mates of pakwheel,

    my new city idsi is on its way for delivery,first thing i would like to do is to change tyres and wheels,though require your expert opinion on tyre wheel size for best performance.

    although for vtec 185/55/R15 is the recomended size by honda would i be able to put the same in idsi (i know no diff in suspension etc) for karachi road conditions would 55 width be appropriate becuase 55 more or less goes towards low profile and i think if i put low profiles the car would be more bumpy.

    a nearby wheelshop recomended me 185/65/R14 WHEEL SIZE FOURTEEN FOR THE BEST PERFORMANCE

    PLEASE SUGGEST THE BEST U ALL GUYZ THINK.

    ALSO LET ME KNOW THAT PIRELLI P400 AQUA IS A REASONABLE BRAND OR I SHOULD GO FOR SOMETHING BETTER

    WAITING FOR UR URGENT HELP

    185/55/r15 is the best and best looking. It doesnt make much difference to the height as its compensated by the rims.
    Respect others opinions and they'll respect yours.

    Hamza, im a proud City Idsi owner, and from experience if you want mixumum comfort, fuel economy (some people say 15" effects suspension too, not too sure abt that), go for 14" 185. You wont regret it (6)...any ways, Death to General tyres ! ARGH :@

    I currently have bridgestone Potenza GIII installed in my city, the road grip is just superb.

    I have Yokohama ES100 15" 195 installed in my civvy, and i have no words to express my love for those tyres. they're just awsome. saved my babe from a terrible crash once (thanks to Allah as well).

    what is the stock tire spec on the city u have? is it185-55-15...if that is the case...u just get new tires with same specs....cuz it looks form your post that you are looking for a comfortable ride and dont want to compromise it.

    moving one or two size up doesnt make any difference as long as ur roll diameter is the same...if somebody tells u that your suspension will go bust...thats not true....check some other posts first in the wheels/tires section...do a search...u will find some information.
    I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending too much liberty than to those attending too small a degree of it..and so restriction of free thought and free speech is the most dangerous of all subversions.
