  • Chaselim, u meant higher as refer to profiles? SX4 original setup on 195/65 on 15" but if were up upsize then 205/60 on 16". Not sure if these were really recommended by Suzuki but a check at wheel size webpage gave the other alternative. Any comment for 205/55 or 50 profiles? Just tot that maybe wheel well area have more gaps lah?

    None. Treadwear is not related to tires profile.  Its the compound of the rubber itself.  It will determine how much give u are having. 

    Just asking, u understanding how the profile works? :)
    A good tuning car must be something that you can take out to the streets.  The car must be fun, fast and safe on all kinds of road conditions.

  • Changing to 16" rims  with a 60 from the original 15" with 65 aspect ratio doesn't make much difference to the car height/wheel well gap. But the width has more contact surface. I don't know what other profiles u meant?
    I rather exhaust the current tyre tread before replacing to another brand. Just opting to other makes that i've never tried when the chance come by.

  • Those nice garang 16" tyres offered doesn't seem to have 60 profiles lah... I shan't go to discuss abt lowering suspension.
