    Default need suggestion for vitz 1.3L 1300cc tires and rims

    Hi Pakwheelers ,Mashallah by the grace of Allah i bought a 1300cc Vitz 2007 model
    the first problem i faced is its low ground clearance ,it hits the bumps so i need to raise it
    i don't want to put spacers so what should be the ideal rims and tire sizes
    it should be close to the original and does not impact the fuel economy and handling of the car
    your suggestions are most welcome
    Thank you

    i would stick to stock size rims and tyres to keep economy at peak
    and place medium size spacers above rear shocks

    add big tyres and rims will raise car, will raise fuel consumption and give u wrong speedo reading as well
    Life is short and very unpredictable just like a Quarter mile .....

    You are right bro, the spacer will do the job, but after compromising the comfort, and in long run damaging your suspensions
    i will suggest that go for 15 with 195-55-R15 or 185-R15 with light weight wheels( Branded)
    I am currently using the 195-55-R15 on 2007 vitz, and its working perfectly fine,with no compromise on fuel average.
    as per manual they are also suggesting two sizes for vitz.

    Recommended size is 185R14 I think
    But like the statement @Uashah007 I'm also using 195-60-R15 for 2 years now in 2008 Vitz and I'm happy car doesn't hit speed breakers.
    Spacer will make car ugly and in the long run will be damaging

    Yes sir, if using spacers, otherwise every car breaker(Speed breaker) will be kissing the car with even three persons( two front and one back)...

    Tires Yokohama A drive or Michelin
    Lenso or some Japanese brand
    Bro if you are in Peshawar, do visit Shoba bazaar ( Swabi tires) for used light weight rims.
