By calculation you cannot use 185/60R14 as the overall diameter is bigger by 6%. Your car will suffer at pick up, FC will increase, car will be harder to stop from high speed.Hi Sifus,
This is my 1st post here. need some advice on changing the tyre size.
My car now using 165/65/R13 (Atos)
can I change to 185/60/R14?
its a wider tyre, can I use myvi rims to cater this tyre?
Thanks in advance
Thanks for your answer.By calculation you cannot use 185/60R14 as the overall diameter is bigger by 6%. Your car will suffer at pick up, FC will increase, car will be harder to stop from high speed.
Right size is 175/55R14 but I don't think there is such a tyre size available.
You can use 165/55R14 , overall is 1.4% smaller or 165/60R14 which is 1.6% bigger however tyre choices are little.
For the rims check your Atos PCD. I remember Myvi is PCD 100, if same, then check the offset and lastly the center bore whether big enough to go in the front.
atleast 165 14" k-car tyre easy to source and have a lot of option tooAtos's wheel arches aren't big to begin with. I suggest to stick with 13 or 14 inch rim.
Anything more, FC and car performance will suffer...Besides, the car isn't that powerful, and taxing the car with bigger wheels aint helping.
185 is the width, 60 is profile therefore forThanks for your answer.
However, I have some noob questions.
why 185/60/R14 will have wider diameter than 165/60/R14
from I read that the '60' is the tyre profile, and the only difference will be the tyre width.
please explain a bit.
No point unless can get good performance tyres, if not 165/65R13 to 165/60R14 to 165/50R15 all 165 width only, however to 165/55R14 got slightly more tyre choices. Even 165/65R13 very little only...Can go for 165/50/15 if want bigger rims hehehe!
175 will be good but 14" got 175/65R14 which is too big.....165 or 175 14" tyre will be good enough
Yup, I think no choice, because even to 15" still 165 only......Hmm, yeah the wheel arch is quite small.
I guess will just change to 165/55R14 lah.
I thot initially want to get a wider tyre, but no choice, car limitation.
