    Fat torque smokes tyres easily and good recipe to make donuts.

    So far so good, but if its gonna be your main car then cannot lah, space is too small, this car hates traffic jam, a bit jerky, the Powershift gearbox is not as responsive as VW DSG, the car in stock form tops out at 200 only, other than that all is good..

    Ford SC is ok ok lah, my car is only 20k KM but my brake pads finish and disc calar already, so ford changed my brake pads and skim the disc FOC

    No doubt get the Yokohama!

    Better go with 205/50/16 then you'd have many more choices on top of those like the new Michelin PS4 and the older PS3, Hankook V12 Evo 2, Bridgestone RE003, and Goodyear F1-D5. All these are good choices along with the Yokohama Fleva.

    The City rims are very narrow. 205 won't fit well.....

    If checking tire spec sheets, 205/50 can fit 5.5-7.5jj rims and City rims is 6jj so should be able to fit still.

    If 6" then ok, my friend's one if not mistaken was 5.5" only, that is why he refuse anything wider than 195

    is that OK 195 width tire to be fitted in 6" witdh rim? i've been searching on the internet. some review said ideal size is 6.5" while some review mentioning ideal size is 6". i'm planning to upgrade my vios rim to 15 inch size. my concern is either want to buy 6jj or 6.5jj rim.

    most probably thinking on fitting hankook v12 evo2 (195/50R15). but still haven't yet my mind yet (any recommendation / suggestion on any other UHP tires is highly apreciated)

    For 195/50R15, both 6J and 6.5J can be used. If aftermarket rims, I think they come with 7J, OEM rims 6J.
    For tyres in 15" still PS3 is highly recommended, others BS RE-003, Hankook V12Evo2, Kumho PS31
