Since most city can use tyre width 205 and cannot enter any bigger due to will hit inside of fender when turning.

Like my city 5gen turning radius is 5.0 and civic turning radius is 5.8 and that might be one of the reason civic can enter 225 or more. (by the way, the less turning radius number, the easy to make fast u turn)

My question is can we increase turning radius of city to like 5.5 so that can enter 215 or 225 tyre, is it something to do like adjusting some bolts of steering or need to replace some steering parts?

:biggrin: just my curious question, want to mod my 5g city into camry 2.4 or accord 2.4 killer and atleast can kejar tyre-r, so i need better grip.

dun turn ur steering to the max........ that is the only thing u can do.

U wun be able to change the turning radius of your car......

btw, the turning radius is actually not how fast u can make a u-turn. its how large a circle u make. example.

Turning radius 5 = if you turn ur steering max to one side, u will be making circles with a diameter of 5 meters.

So if u wanna increase the turning radius...... just turn less......:P

Thanks for the reply, in that case will not disturb turning radius.

Maybe just need to get wheel spacer and add widening bodykit for side of fender. :biggrin:

Tyre shop foreman told me before that adding wheel spacers will make your wheels vibrate during high speed. I'm not sure how true but if its true then you better don't if you wanna kejar type-R.
Later kejar half way tayar tercabut of wadever then.......

only plan for city can catch type R is put K20A inside
but that's illegal

and you car is just a small car, this is what it designed to be. forget about 2.4 litters killers

no point putting 215/225 tyre, it will slow your car down. Unless your car has too much power, basically overpower, then larger contact patch will help
