Pics? The colour is gun smoke powder, light silver.

Stock KB 15" I think cannot fit 195/55/15, check with other members. I think someone's 15/16 rim hit the fender one when go over bump. If yours is KB stock 15" rims, 185/55/15 is the more suitable size. 195/55/15 looks more garang though. Fatter. FC higher lor.

thinking of lightweight 15" to reduce unsprung weight, so the wheel and suspension complies easier to bumps and keeps the chassis more level while driving.

it's also very hard to find non-Goodyear tires for 185/55/15, that's another reason i'm considering to change rims.

185/55/15, you can get MPP2 size. They do sell, around RM200-210 last month I ask. Not sure if price went up now already.

Dont worry, if you dont speed over the bumps no problem. I have tried using 16 inches rims, 15 inches rims, so far nothing. if pass through speed bump just slow down to maybe 20km/h or so should not give u any problem...also no need to zig-zag. I lower my car till less than 2 fingers, its still ok..unless those very big ones...go ahead and use it. no worry. it quite good.
