    Default Toyota Vitz Owners/Fan Club

    The purpose of this post is to gauge the interest in forming a Toyota Vitz Owners Club in different cities of Pakistan. As we all know that Vitz has become quite popular in the last year or so. More and more people are buying it or are interested to know more about it. The purpose of the club would be to share technical / operational information regarding the car. As well as help fellow members with different issues regarding the everyday running of the car. There would be regular meets and get together as well as cruises. The criteria to join the club would be to own a Vitz and a desire to help and share information with fellow members. I myself am based in Karachi, so I can take the lead in taking off this project here. Other can do the similar thing in their respective cities. If there is enough interest, a formal charter / by-laws would be issued with club rules and regulation as well as its mission statement. The club would operate under the same rules & conditions as other international car clubs. To take this project off the ground, I believe 10 people in each city would be the minimum requirement. If anyone from Karachi is interested in being a part of this club, please email me at danyal1@hotmail.com. Pakwheelers from other cities can share their email addresses under this post if they are willing to take the lead for their respective cities. I hope to this see become a success someday and a model for other to follow. LETS MAKE IT HAPPEN GUYS!!!

    What do you mean by hard? Is it the steering which is hard or you feel that the tires with 26psi seems much( causing less traction, bouncing vehicle) while driving.
    For 15" rim you should install 185/60 specification tires for best driving, fuel consumption, suspension and steering control. The rim width should be 5.5". The rim offset should be +45. With the specifications I have provided you, I guarantee that all shall be OK. Theses recommendations are for Vitz 2006, 1300 cc.

    Maybe it is the serpentine belt that needs to be replaced if the belt is okay then the tensioner needs adjustment to tighten the belt.

    By hard i mean like when u have excessive air pressure in the tyres. Like the tyres r bumpy n making the whole car vibrate on even smallest of bumps. Like its not smooth if u lnw wht i mean.
    N Yes v rightly said the same is mentioned on the door sticker.
    Thnx a lot bro wil try to replace thm as soon as i get some extra cash.
    Does the year of production also have an effect on it? Mine is manufactured in 2011. Are the old/expired??
