    Default Toyota Vitz 2011 Tyres

    Hello everyone. Can anyone suggest the best tyre size for Vitz 2011 new shape. I bought mine a month ago and it seems to have very small tyres like the size of Mira or Alto tyres. So some suggestions needed. Thanks.

    Hey
    The car is great and I'm lovin it. There are just a few things tho, engine noise inside the cabin is a little more than other cars. The car is really low keeping in view the 'car breakers' in Pakistan so you'll need to have it lifted it a bit. Now what I did was, I got spacers, but due to that, the rear part of my car kind of 'drops' when I come off a speed breaker, so I have to drive very slowly at speed breakers. What I'd suggest is that you take it to some rebowned mechanic and ask him what would be the best solution other than spacers. As for the tyre size, mine's is really small too so Im also looking fr someone to suggest on that

    But what size of tyres you got for your car? Small and large size is very vague term. Without mentioning complete size of your current tyres no one will be able to tell if its a small size or large.

    Thanks for feedback . I will definitely look into the spacers issue . As the car will be driven in Islamabad so i need the solution keeping in mind the islamabad roads .

    Secondly , 185 70 R14 was the best size for old vitz as per my knowledge . i dont know about this model . Any tyre guro required for expert opinion .

    R14 is size of wheel stick to it, profile & width of rubber tyre will affect the fuel economy. anything between 165 - 195 mm wide / profile ( 70 - 95 % of width) will be fine for ride comfort & handling

    Okay thanks a lot for the help with tyre size
    Can you also let me know what's the optimum pressure air required in front and rear tyres in vitz? I've heard air pressure in tyre has a huge effect on fuel economy.
    One more thing, I'm searching for a suitable substitute to spacers. As I said earlier, my car rear part 'drops' when coming off a speed breake due to 1.5inch spacers installed. I need a solution other than spacers so plz help me out in that regard.
    Thanks
