    Default What Tires would be best for new corolla 2014?

    The new corolla with its pros and cons. Few people dont like to keep the stock tires (Euro) and change them right away.
    If one doesnt want to keep 195/65 R15 and go towards R16. What would be the best option fuel and road grip wise both?

    205/60/R16?

    Who is the best tire dealer in karachi?

    The best thing I've ever done to any car is to revert it to its stock tyre size.

    For the same money, better to buy high-quality tyres of renowned make and manufacture which are stock size rather than cheaper quality tyres which are wider.

    It is better for status also. Example given: You see a civic with Michelin, Pirelli, Toyo or Continental tyres in stock size. OTOH you also see a civic (or charade for that matter) with *General* tyres many sizes wider than factory size. Which one would make a better impression?

    Wider tyres do not give you better grip. Quality material does. For the same money you'd spend on widening, you could get stock size but a lot more durable, which would retain its grip and other properties for much longer.

    205 55 16 is the factory size being offered all over the world except for pakistan.
    Indus is offering carry over rims in the new altis, which I am also inshallah going to change.

    So go for 205 55 16, rim should be 16 5 nut pcd 100 and ET40. This is the correct factory size. Rest is up to you

    if you are planning to change, change to size 16 wheels & yokohama tyres ( 185 75 16 / or 195 70 16 ) comfort & fuel economy will be at par. while awkward looking rear wheel arch gap will vanish

    IMHO, you should get 205/60/R16 tires with any good LIGHT Weight Rims, maybe Lenso's. The rims should be of 6.5" width max, with no less than +38 offset. If you buy, good light weight rims with these tires than you'll only be adding 0.5KG weight compared to the stock size of 195/65/R15. The compromise on the economy will be negligible and affordable. However, if you cheap rims, then you will certainly add 2KG weight to the hubs causing a drastic decrease in economy of upto 2-3kmpl.
    The stock rims of altis are 6" wide and with +45 offset. Tires+rims weight of stock altis wheels is around 16KG, with light weight 16" rims and 205/60/R16 tires, you'll get 16.5-16.75KG weight. With cheap 16" rims you'll get 18+KG weight at the axles.
    With 205/55/R16, you'll get an overall diameter of 24.9" and with 205/60/R16 you get an overall diameter of 25.7". The stock size of 195/65/R15 has 25" diameter.

    Brother 205 55 16 is closer to factory specs than 205 60 16...
    Secondly, it is strange but the Pakistani Altis has 6 inch wheel with 33mm offset, not 45.

    All PKDM cars which come with OEM Rims have +45mm offset.
    Civic has 15" rim with 6" width and ET:+45.
    City has 15" rim with 5.5" width and ET: +45.
    Swift has 15" rim with 5.5" width and ET: +45.
    These can be verified from any car.
    Same goes for Altis, I have had Altis 1.6 which came with FF rims of the above mentioned specification.
    205/55/R16 are almost same as the FF size, however, you won't be able to get same comfort level from this size as the OEM size. 205/60/R16 will offer that comfort yet at the same time tires won't look so "bulgy".

    I agree with you that 205 60 would be more comfortable . But altis has et33 not 45
    Take one wheel off your car and see what's stamped behind it. You'll be surprised.

    Thanks. I have 8th Gen Civic. With 205/60/R16 with lenso rims. But i think fuel consumption has increased due to 205 thingy. Well if toyota is giving internationally 205/55/R16. Then i guess that should b the choice for everyone looking to upgrade wheels off their new corolla.
    Thankyou pakwheelers for help. When i get the car and tires. i ll update with pics and observation.

    There is a dealer in Dubai who is ready to ship these 16" OEM Corolla wheels to Pakistan with Air Cargo for around 80K. Is it a good deal ?
