already put 55 profile on my vios. manage to get myvi baru advance 15 inch rim around & 4 pcs v12 evo2 donut for RM 1250. one side feel relieve as change the bald tire but during installation, i did notice the offset gap is more than i expected.

checking on the internet current 14 inch oem rim ET45. but on the rim itself is written 39. and at mudah the ads stating myvi baru 15 inch 6.5JJ ET40. but on the rim itself written 15x6J & 50 (mudah ads is published by different seller). it is about 10 mm in offset gap :banghead: so the staff there put 7mm spacer in front wheel coz the new rim already kena brake caliper lol :adore:

seems to be mudah ads sometimes can be misleading nowadays. earlier having this kind of situation which on yesterday was checking with weng heng staff. in the ads stating 15x6.5jj but upon checking for confirmation it is 15x5.5jj. just wondering how come the clearly printed on the inner side of the rim also can be overlook the number lol.



sifu. i mean in term off driving experience should be not much different cause earlier the car was fitted with 185/65R14 especially speed at speedometer (since 195/55R15 is almost same with 185/65R14). but yes, in term of size upgrade, based on OEM tire size, it is still within 3% rule, which is 2.13% bigger like u mention earlier.

as new rim already fitted. it looks like the wheel abit going inside (rear tire) & my concern is on 7mm spacer. checking on the youtube see some videos telling using spacer is quite bad:bawling:.
If the specs differ should not have bought the rims.

Yup, from 185/65R14 to 195/55R15 closer in specs.

As for spacers, most of the time not good is because not made to specs. Not flat, loose fit etc. A good spacer should tight fit and have center cone build in, This is to hold the rims in place right in the center. If loose fit the rims can be off center and that is where your vibration comes from...

sudah siap pasang tayar pd rim & wheel to tight the lug nut then come across the problem the rim hit the brake caliper. want to cancel also dunno how to say :banghead:

the spacer is just 7mm. if not mistaken spacer with center cone usually 15mm and above right? but yes. the tire shop staff there did mention. if at high speed came across the vibration, they ask me to come back and fit a center cone to the front side.

ahh ok , no dif.. i read , theres magically a 3% dif in some way....... was racking my brains to figure out how it could be diferent given that the overall circumference and contact patch remain relatively the same
ur mind still floating with that "apa" 5. :idea:

Sounds like they already anticipate that you will run into trouble later. Strange that didnt throw any alarms for you

Nope, center cone is just to set your rims to fit nicely in the center, so it fits dead center, nothing to do with spacing...

that is because the new myvi baru advance rims so good looking lol. but i & the staff there have a discussion where if i got trouble later (let say for example vibration, they give me option to replace with alza advance rims. alza rims are closes wtih vios rim in term of the ET. alza is ET 45 while vios is ET 40.

since i put 7mm spacer, i expected my rim not fit nicely in the center hub. so i plan to miling a bit the myvi rim (miling to 56.6mm) and with that i can fit center cone. another reason i plan like that because i have chevrolet aveo with center bore of 56.6mm. so next time easy lah. Can just swap rim lol. :driver:

A lot of unnecessary mod and expenses. My VR and Sonata are on 17" rims, both have 8 holes (4x100,4x114.3) owned them for19years/16years, never swap rims before but got swap tyres......hahhahhahahha
