So I can actually install 205/50/r16 to my car?
Can, but using 205 may be a bit heavy, could zap some power from your pick up, and FC may be heavier too. However diameter size is quite same as OE, only 0.25% bigger

Conti tyres, don't get way laid by their name. UC6 as in Ultra Contact sound powerful but actual in between CC (comfort) and MC (Max). Max is below PC (Premium) then only comes CSC (Sports) Now got EC (Extreme contact). FC (Force contact) is their Extreme category tyres.....lol

205 on 6JJ depends on the series too. If 45 series 6.5JJ is min, if 50 series then can. This is due to sidewall bending in as 205 is roughly 8 inch wide already ....

2014 city? 6 years old? Don’t know mileage covered and road conditions. Check absorbers, if they are dead it’ll explain your floating feeling.

will be funny if you change tyres and you’re still floating.

You reminded me mine also I haven't change the absorber before for my jazz. Year end might switch a set new kyb since the mileage is already 83k km. I also wanna throw a set of tein spring but since my dad is driving more I don't want to risk scratching the bottom of my bumper as he use to driving hilux so is hard for his to get use to it driving low car so fast. Hahahahaha

Well, my Persona bought new from factory hasnt had the absorbers changed. Year end should be changing.
Car is 2012 and 167000km, far from smooth driving. KYB stock abs have held up really well, no floating, just soft.
Most bushings have been changed.

At 167000km, I will be suprised if they arent dead yet.

honestly I think no need to lower for normal driving. Like a myvi, no matter how low you go it’s still a boat. telling yourself it floats less ks

They aren't that at all hehe. Didn't float, compress nicely.
No leaks. Bump stops look great, just some signs of bottoming out, had some 5 big persons in the car.
KYB making good stuffs haha
You also failed to mention you've been using stock tyre size forever too - means the suspension doesn't take as much abuse (potentially)?

Can a more aggressive alignment solve this I wonder. Im not that great at setting up cars.
Maybe some Toe out and a little negative camber.
In theory this should help solved the problem.
Its one way some manufacturer did to reduce fc in effort to drive sales. Its cheaper than installing technology into the car which wull push the selling price higher. Skinny tires and alignment setup which reduces drag helps drive down fc...at the expense of handling. P2 Bezza is a good example.

Drove a friend's city before, suspension is on the firm side (for a jap car) so imho it should handles well at high speed but even at 80kmh its steering and suspension behaviour becomes like my Pajero. This was driven on new conti tires (forget the model). Thus i think its the stock allignment setup.

Exactly, Myvi come with 175/65R14, every time friend ask what tyres to use, always recommend 185/60R14. Some other cars comes with 185/55R15, some 185/55R16 and so on. As you mentioned these tyres are cheaper therefore can cost down.....

Dont believe so. It might be my bushings that are taking the beatings, I have swapped almost every bushings there are in the car now.
Other than tie rod and absorbers.

That's because it's all rubber and you've never touched them since new. Aiya probably everything affects everything
