    Default Tire and rims suggestion required for increasing comfort level for Vitz.

    So I have a Toyota Vitz 2010 which is on stock steel rims since I first got it. I am told that installing tires with greater width would increase the comfort level of my car, along with raising it a few inches so it's bottom doesn't touch on overloading. So in short, i need rims and tires that will not ruin my car's suspension, but also give it more comfort on bumpy roads and raise it a little off the ground. I was advised to get 205/60/R16 by a few friends. What do you suggest?

    totally wrong, bigger tyres would make your car consume lots more fuel and cause more wear. it will also be not that much comfortable or certainly worse to drive since you are lugging those heavy tyres and in a small car the best you can do if you want more clearance is to increase size to 195/65 R 15 , but they will look odd and you might touch the fender inside when overloading if you go for any bigger tyre or rim size
    if you want in 16inch then you will need 205/55 r15 and they will denfinately not give you a soft ride


    rather then get cheap chinease wheels, i would suggest keep your original rims and just get really good quality tyres such as continental, you'll love the drive and just take it easy over bumps, don't overload
    If everything is coming your way, you're in the wrong lane!

    Stick to oem. Increase the wall size slightly if you want more comfort. And thats it. Dont go for bigger wheels and wider tyres.

    Thank you all so much I have decided I'll be sticking with OEM then. However, what tire size would you suggest and which brand? Also, a price estimate would be much appreciated.

    Search net and see what the oem size is. Increase the wall size slightly to ditch breakers if necessary.
    Yokohama Advan DB are reallu soft tires which provide a very grippy and noiseless drive.

    I have always used rims with big tyres on my Vitz and never faced an issue, two of my Vitz had Alloys and one had steelies, there wasn't much diff on mileage however the steering felt more soft with steelies, rather than that i never faced any low ground clearance issues or mileage diff.

    185/65-R14 is best . However u can also go for 185/70-R14.
    Michelin XM2 or Advan db v551
    Both are fine.
