    Default Vitz Tyre Size change.

    Hello,

    I recently got new tyres for My Toyota Vitz 2009. Previously, they were 165/70/r14.

    I replaced them with Michelin Energy 185/70/r14.

    Basically after the change my car requires more throttle when it approaches 100km/h and at 120km/h smell of a rubber comes. Drive has become heavy.

    NOTE: I haven't changed the stepheny(rim).. its the same steel black colored.

    Can anyone suggest, how to fix this.

    Regards,

    Junaid

    Sounds just like a side effect of wide tyres. They look cool and apart form that ruin everything.
    Buying a JDM import is too much risky. Reversed Meter, weak engine may b. Thanks to local dealers who just wont earn halal
