1. 185/60/14 for stock standard car and 195/55/15 for 15" upgrade is the correct choice, from factors of economic to protecting the rims, perfectly nothing wrong.

2. tyre too small like 175/65/14 will suffer from stability, we cant compare Accent weight with MyVi, VIOS or any perodua. sometimes weight give another side of benefits such as safety and stability, of course should be proportional with the power output.

3. if really want the mother of weight, don't buy Accent, buy an Iswara or Lotus Elise, sure u wont regret it.

4. and dont forget, MT is meant for serious performance owners.

Actually Accent is designed for 175/70/13. this size is d stock standard tyre for d market in US *(and also Singapore i believe). our stock 185/60/14 here is actually an option tyre in d US, as is 185/55/15.

d 3% rule is mainly affecting the speedo reading. of cos 195/55/15 tyre gives better handling, comfort n more protection for d suspension, but 50 series tyre will giv more accurate speedo reading, as of 175/70/13 and 185/60/14, as these 3 sizes gives u similar diameters. tat's also d reason y our manual recommends 185/55/15, not 195/55/15.

well, i think KB is not that stupid forgotten to recalibrate their speedometer to pass PUSPAKOM with 185/60/14 and 195/55/15

well, to use 55 series not only protecting suspension and comfort the driver, but also protect our rims.

and another well is, yes those size are optional at US... but my friend, here is Malaysia, our bolehland road condition is different from US (straight, less holes, flat...). each car makers will deploy the right size of tyre for each different countries.

our mileage is vary.

no matter what. the speedometer reading for 195/55R15 ... wont be so much different to 195/50R15.... maybe only 2 to 3kmph... so doesnt matter.

as long is comfort ride, is good enough.
