    and 195/65/16( which is a normal tire...please excuse my terminology...there are only two tire sizes im aware of...normal and low profile )


    Now that you guys have helped me in getting that question of mine answered...the next important thing that worries me is the brand of tire....and where to get it from?since im in karachi are there any good shops where i can get good tires for the right price??


    the guy at the Dunlop store in Gizri told be he has two tires...one was Dunlop Max...and the other was SP Sport 9000.


    Which tires brand and price would u guys suggest....??


    By the way ....In My recent trip to the Dunlop store....i asked him if i can have 16 ich alloys....he was against it....he said that GLI has a 1300cc engine....and its just too much on your car...the suspension will give away....BUT if your daily mileage is low then its ok....:p


    Dunlop store guy has no idea what he is talking about.


    Get 16 size rim with negative offset and go with 225/50/16 tires.


    225=wider tire more rubber to hug the road which means more stable ride and less chances of skidding. not to mention it will look nicer with more profile.


    50=taller tires with low profile


    16=bigger rims





    Good Luck

    @Oracles
    225/50/16 is a good size, but "50=taller tires" ?

    50 means the profile is less, rather at any given point on the sidewall it will be about 0.5" smaller than original tyres..

    But 225 is TOO wide, and the point you made, "for better grip", is irrevelant since he's in KHI. Where is he going to make turns at 150 kmph in KHI :s?

    I said its a low profile tire... perhaps you didnt read it correctly.


    The whole point of changing rims/tires to bigger ones are to get more traction and looks. I dont know what is irrevelant here laws of traction applies in Karachi too. I still think 225 is far better then 205. Ofcourse its my opinion and you are entitled to yours. OH and dont forget to get 16x7.5 or if you can find it 16.8 rims would be better still.
