Check the size here because if u use size other that the factory. It will also cause ur speedometer to read incorrectly.
Yeah, already hhave taken this issue into consideration when looking for tyres with diff aspect ratio. It's just that I'm not sure it'll fit into my stock rims. I'm trying to see if I can put on some UHP tyres without changing rims.

If you use 195/45R16 in replacement for your 195/50R16 the overall diameter is smaller by 3.26%. Like bro. mcliong mention 205/45R16 is a better fit as overall diameter is smaller by 1.74% only which is closer to original diameter, however how wide are your OEM rims? 205/45 fit 6.5 to 7.5" width, where your 195/50 is 5.5 to 7". If your rims are 6.5" then okay....

Yeah, stock 16'' rims. Ah, might as well just wait until my tyres thread wear out, then think about changing rims later.
The CPC2 are not that bad. Comfort performance tyres...

i've seen ppl fit 205/45/16 into 6jj rim. but it doesn't look nice at all
That is why minimum is 6.5" best is 7"

Hmm I changed my 185/70/R13 to a 205/45/R16 will that cause the speedo to read incorrectly?
Good fit, brother. Only 0.31% bigger in diameter....

I thought of changing the 45 tyres to 50 maybe in the future.. the 45s are too bumpy for me..
Nope, 205/50R16 is 3.66% bigger in diameter. Speedo meter reading out, heavy pick up. slowing down from high speed needs heavier braking force....
Should have thought of the ride, then go for 205/50R15 only...:biggrin:

Yup, always try to keep within 3% change.
You can try 195/50R16 for a bit more comfort, or look for some comfort performance tyres like Yoko C-Drive 2
