    Default New tyres for Vitz 2001

    My vitz came with yokohama tyres, 185/65 13inch. The threads are still in good condition but recently have had 2 very bad punctures. Also, I don't know how old they are, (car second hand). Total mileage 75000km

    I was thinking of replacing them with slightly taller and less wide tyres (to improve fuel and raise height)

    Someone recommend me japanese dunlop, 175/70 13inch. For 21k for 4 tyres (he will buy my old for 1k so net cost 20k)

    What do you guys suggest? I wouldn't mind changing the rims as well, but cost is a major factor. 20k seems too high!

    ^ if u want economy, and a city driver,

    Vitz orignaly comes with 155/80r13, which are also Cultuses tires.

    If u want 14" then 185/60r14 is gud but low profile, 185/65r14 is a slightly bigger tire (3%) bigger, which would give u around 3% false meter reading

    Hope it helps.
    Get over the fact that Xli lacks power windows, Its an Xli because it lacks thoose features or else it would be a Gli or an Altis if had all the goodies.

    155!!
    Hmm, I might stick with 13 inches, but defenatly not 185!!
    175 or 165 is what an thinking about.

    Wouldn't 80 make it too high?

    What about costs?

    This is the condition of my Tyres: Will they sell? (Two tyres had bad punctures. Were repaired). The two back tyres (now in front) are good

    New tyres for Vitz 2001 - 30082010315

    New tyres for Vitz 2001 - 30082010316
    -

    Should I buy two same tyres or get all four changed? Still confused between
    155/80r13 165/75/r13 & 175/70/r13??

    Should I change the RIM as well? (Don't want a costly option)

    the car does not have the original wheel set these been exchanged locally. no japanese car is shipped with multiple BDU holes. This is done locally at machine shops. Tyre shown in the pictures seems to be in good shape if 2 are in good condition buy identical 2 and change the front ones.

    Thanks

    But to be in honest, I really am a NooB in tires. what are BDU holes? The holes where the nut goes?

    SO what you are saying is that these are good and I should just get 2 new ones?

    I don't think these tyres did a lot of mileage btw.. my car shows 75k but I bought it at 60k kms.. The import slip said it had done 56k km in japan (which I believe cause the condition was very good)
