better get a 15" rim, a bit high FC but not that high, still acceptable, and besides, the looks good too.
better in look and not jeopardising the FC.

one thing you have to remember, the bigger the rim, the heavier it gets and the more FC and slower the pick up....but the looks is important too.
Very Happy

changing to 14" wont make your FC go sky high, and besides...the price of rim will be damn cheap, i think its worth it just to get the second hand ones.....cause one day...you too will surely change to bigger ones. Very Happy

there are many good tires out there.... but i heard that michelin is good my frens and colleague also say its good. but its slightly expensive. not sure about 14 inches cos i use 16. i heard that 15 is round 220 to 240, so 14 should be around ur budget maybe 180. yokohama tires also quite good. Bridgestone pontenza g3 is not bad.
