    Default Toyota Corolla Axio Tyres Help Required

    Assalam-O-Allikum,

    I bought a japanies Toyota Corolla Axio 2007 and it came with 15 inches stock tyres and no alloy rims, the car is superb in everything and there is only one problem, when there are more than 2 passengers in the car the car hits on bumps and gets low, the showroom owner suggested me to install 16 inches rims and tyres to it, I'm new to cars and don't have sufficient knowledge about tyres, rims and how they affect the car's performance.

    I also don't know what this sort of combinaion means for tyres while I was searching the forum found terms like below:

    195-65-R15, 195-60-R15 and 185-65-R15

    Please recommend me tyre size and rim size for my car that won't hurt the performance and will make the car safe from hitting the bumps.

    Thanks in advance.

    AXIO has 14" stock rims. If ur car has already got 15" rims, then keep in mind that increasing the profile may cause the tyres to touch the body, flaps etc. By the way Im using 195/70R14 in my AXIO, and ground clearance is enough. Even with three passengers on back seat, there is no problem to touch the breakers. But when four passengers sit on back seat,then it touches the speed breakers.

    Till 16" there is no issue of touching the body. I am myself using 195/65/R15 in my Axio.

    For 16", the profile must be lesser than that for 15".

    go for 195 65 r 15 or 205 60 r 15 dont go for 16 '' rims.
    prefered size is 195 65 r 15.
    because if u go for 205 55 r 16 car height will increase by 0.1 cm
    and with 195 65 r 15 it will be 0.2 cm.
    so its better to stay with 15 as it has go 10% more profile then 16 which means 15 is more suitable for Pakistani roads.

    Thanks Usman bhai, I got your point and it was really helpful, but yaar there is a lot of gap between tyres and body and I was thinking using low profiles as they look good on car or may be wider tyres something that would give my car more aggressive look. But your suggestion would be my highest consideration and I might sacrify my urge of low profiles as performace and consupmtions are my big concerns as well.

    Thanks, I really appreciate your reply, but don't you think 195 65 15 would look less agressive, and one last questions, does any of these you mentioned affect car milage?

    Some people are saying its not recommended as it will make the car look odd and little upward from the back side.
