    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!!!

    are your dampers (AKA shock absorbers) in proper working order? have you had your springs tested (are they still the correct height and rating)?

    are the 4 people regular sized or (pakistani style) supersized?

    i've had 5 guys in my vitz and it didn't hit any speedbreakers, but i tend to go slow over them and if they are HUGE i go sideways.

    @thecommunicator,

    I also have 13" rim on my vitz. I have installed 13/70/175 in it and this is the best combination if you consult the online rim /tyre size calculator..

    @All
    A lot of ppl have been comlaining of low clearance of vitz. A useful tip to clear odd bumps without scrathing bottom of ride is that cross all odd bumps diagonally. i.e. Only one of the front wheel must go onto the bump first then rear wheel of that side. I have been doing so and my ride newer strucks on bumps. I'm using 175/70/13 tyres.

    @thecommunicator
    OEM sizes are 155/80R13 (578mm), if you wish to keep the 13 inch rim size you can fit the following:

    165/75R13 (578mm) - perfect fit, better fottprint, good economy
    175/75R13 (575mm) - near perfect fit (as above)
    185/70R13 (589mm) - a little large but still ok, but poor fuel economy/acceleration.

    any larger and you'll have to fit wider rims and i'd not suggest anythign over 185 on a 13 inch rim though 195/65R15's are 584mm which is also acceptable.

    @chaudri
    by fitting larger and heavier rims/tyres you are increasing the unsprung weight and causingmore drag (fatter tyres) therefore your fuel economy and performance will be affected. however if you can get some good light weight rims and don't fit too fat a tyre you will not feel any difference (might improve but not likely). either way the changes will be so slight that you will probably not feel any change with 14's.

    Dear everybody-wanting-to-increase-height-of-the-vitz, different options seem to work but the best is in my view to simply change the springs to slightly stiffer and larger ones. I changed mine's rear springs only and despite carrying a cng cylinder, the car doesn't touch now, if i'm slow enough, even on the highest speed breakers. No need for diagonal crossings any more. Even on higher speeds, the actual cause of touching is that my front shock absorbers are soft - which I've kind'a gotten used to and don't want to change right away.

    Other than that, storm's right on the dot on tyre/rim sizes. Just that I believe he meant 175/70R13 instead of 75R13. To add, 13" rims are much better for family cars (specially in pk) as the overall drive is softer too. I'd recommend 175/70R13 to everybody wanting to change tyres.

    Btw, finally got my tyres changed. The older Falkens served really well. This time bought Yokohama Aspec A300 185/70R13 (searched for 175s but cudn't find them and really wanted to buy the A300s). So far they're great. But will know for sure after some more driving. Any recommended place for getting the wheels aligned in Isb? The few ones I checked out, didn't look very reliable. Thanks.

    @TheCommunicator

    I don't think it's about the brand... cuz there are various different kinds of tyres available in all good brands. E.g. if you're focusing on long life, then something like "bridgestone taxi premium" would be the way to go. Bridgestone B70 looks good, but don't think it'll be available in 175/70R13.

    @storm

    Btw, 185/70R13 would provide less acceleration but can actually result in better fuel economy - especially if u're not going above around 80km/h. right?

    @moizp
    indeed you are right, I meant to say 175/70R13, not 175/75R13.

    185/70R13's will cover more ground per rotation so that will result in the engine revving slightly slower at any given speed (with stock size tyres). However they will be wider and heavier so there will be some drag and the engine will have to work a little harder to rotate them).

    you are welcome, hope you are satisfied. i think you should have had the catalytic converter removed since you were there already. yes he is a little expensive but i think he is worth it.
