    Default Cultus and 14/15inch rims

    is it adviseable to put in 14/15 inch with Yokohama A539 185/55 tyres...what do you think, is it a good package?

    did you consider the fact that by doing such your speedometer readings would be incorrect as would be the mileage of ur ride.

    Although this post is old but i m sure other people still have this question.. the original size of cultus is 155/80/r13.. the principle behind rim upsizing is that the diameter of the tyre remains the same.. the original tyre's diameter is 578mm..
    People normally use 175/70/r13 tyres and they are 574mm.. the speedomter adjustment is only 1km less 100km.. i.e. at 100km/h the actual speed is 99km/h and same for distance travelled..
    Now back to upsizing.. 185 tyre width is too much traction for delicate cultus engine.. so 155 or 165 or 175 is suitable.. personally 155 walay tyre ki grip bohat kum lagti hai so i like 165 or 175 is best..

    Anyways bottom line..
    Ideal 15inch: 165/60/r15 (578mm)
    175/55/r15 (574mm)

    Agar cultus petrol pe hai tou u might try 185/60/r14 (578mm) lekin suspension aur kenchian jaldi kharab honay ka chance rahay ga.. aur power steering nai hai tou steering wheel turn krna azaab hojaye ga.. so 15 inch walay lagao aur enjoy!!

    Default all tyre sizes for cultus

    i realized that Pakistan has less variety in tyre sizes..
    so i am listing all tyre sizes that are good for cultus so you can choose what u like:

    155/80/R13
    165/75/R13
    175/70/R13

    175/65/R14
    185/60/R14 (use on VXL or if you have fitted power steering)

    155/65/R15
    165/60/R15
    175/55/R15

    175/60/R16

    all these tyre sizes will not affect suspension.. 15 inch and 16 inch tyres will make the ride very hard and these low profile tyres are not meant for heavy weight usage therefore if it is a family car then avoid it (kabhi kabhi chalta hai but not regular).. also these low profile tyres should not be used if u drive on rough or broken roads very often.. furthermore, 155/xx/Rxx has very low grip so i dont prefer those.. bottom line is that 14inch sizes are ideal if you really want to upsize..

    Why front 13???? It looks odd.......165/55R13 will be approx 2 inch smaller than 195/50R15

    Not good 165/55R13 gives almost same bump as 195/50R15 if you want to decrease bump then install 60 or 65
