    Default Installed Yokohama 195/65/15 in Swift but....

    A_O_A guys,
    last week i installed Yokohama Eco 195/65/15 in my Swift 2014. before i had BrigeStone 185/60/15. before drive was so comfort and handling was super. but now i am getting few issue.
    1- as i cross 120 i feel my steering is too light.
    2- on +70 if i make cut then i feel like i am driving some pickup or some long vehicle
    3- on bumpy road too much noise in car khar khar....

    i tried,
    PSI 30/28, too much bumpy
    PSI 28/26, little better

    Brakes get improved but all over performance get down.
    can any one tell me how can i solve these issue ?

    Brother you have installed a lot bigger tyre in your car. Stick to OEM size. Btw why you changed the original tires so quick?

    Advan dB or C drive. Buy 185/60/15 or 195/60/15. Dont go for 65, swift already has big tyres. The Bridgestone it has are good enough for 50k kms if driven sensibly.

    Hello,

    Almost all the replies are correct. Dont you feel torque lost as well with so big tyres you have got.
    I made mistake of putting bigger tyres in my car and felt less torquey..

    Stick to the original tyre size and go for Michelin Energy saver series. soft and quiet

    I am using Michelin for long time now and fully satisfied

    cheers

    BiLaL
    Alhamdulillah

    Me and My cousine are using

    185/65 r15

    This is the best size for swift as well as city.

    Road grip remains as of 185/60 but comfort increases much

    Also if you drive car on rough roads
    Tire pressure should be
    26 front
    24 back

    If on normall roads like lahore

    28 front
    26 back

    Tire pressure should not be more than 28 in pakistan for long life of your car chimtas especially suzukis.

    A good idea would be to make sure the calibration of the device is correct, 30 PSI might not actually be 30 PSI :-)

    I don't know anything about GTs, I would wait and go only for Advan Decibel series or Michelin energy saver xm series.you have to search thoroughly market to find best price and quality. TBH the shopkeepers are so kinky, they will show you different variants with different price etc etc. from made in china to made in USA.Take ur time to choose and stick to the default size.drive safe, cheers
    Alhamdulillah
