    Default Got tyres changed of Corolla 2007

    hi guys, i got tyres changed for my dad's Corolla today.

    I got the Yokohama DNA DB DECIBAL in the size 195/70/14. Just now i did a size difference calculator from the stock size(175/70/14) and found the new tyres to be 4.7% difference.

    But i am regretting now since i heard only +-2.5% is recommended.

    please give suggestion on what harm it create...

    i have 205/70/15 in my 2008 old shape xli! brakes and handling got alot better but a slight decrease in mileage which i can afford over its original ridiculous braking! with ff tyres it used to do 180km/cng tank now it does 150km.

    It is okay to get 2011 tyres. Why did u go for 14 instead of 15?
