    Hey guys, im wondering if 195/50/15 tyres can fit to k-car?

    Currently rocking 15x7 JJ rims with 165/50/15 rubbers on a perodua viva.
    Planning to upgrade to 195/50/15 tyres due to lack of performance tyres for 165 and 175 series..

    Currently wish to maintain 15 inch rims.

    I've seen 195/50/15 tyres on kelisa, but wondering if it can fit on viva.

    Constructive feedbacks are highly appreciated! Thanks! :driver:

    yeap can fit with fender mods like knocking or rolling..
    thought of fitting it onto my viva to get that fat & meaty look :)

    just wondering if anyone have the experience fitting it on viva..
    wouldnt want to risk wasting money buying performance 195/50/15 tyres and finding out not able to fit in..

    thanks for the input danz, im currently on low profile & stretched tyres..

    after sometime using it, though cornering felt dam responsive, but ride comfort very low..

    can feel every bits of sand and stones on the road.. and also very bumpy. so im thinking of playing fatter tyres to at least get some comfort.. and also 195 series got more choices for performance tyres

    well definately u would need to do some fender knocking/wheelarche flaring/minor widebody upgrade to get the tyre sit flush with body level (avoid tyre eating fender) :biggrin:

    too much work to fit in 195/50/15 in viva and also not sure who can do it...
    plus the offset of the rims need to be correct...well i m not sure wat is the correct offset thou...coz if not the wheels are gonna be abit out of the arch...need widebody conversion then.

    a fren of mine once use 195/50/15 on viva...few month later change to 14inch rims due to tyre eating the fender even with only driver in the car.

    opt for 14inch coz need more comfort plus giving the car to gf so need to be prob free...or later he will get prob...hahaha!

    many thanks bro pomen GTR and amrancharger for your inputs!

    currently im on 15" 7JJ offset+40.
    might be changing to lower offset perhaps +35? isit enough for inner clearance?

    i think i can go for fender rolling to overcome the outer fender rubbing tyre issue..

    im just worried about inner clearance..

    if possible, bro amrancharger, can u ask your friend what was his rim JJ & offset when he was using 195/50/15? i wan to know roughly what offset and JJ of rim to use if want to fit 195/50/15

    my fren cannot remember lol coz it was a couple of years ago...
    but the wheels was a bit out of the arch....i tink its due to the spacer also in order to fit dat 50 series tyres.
