The answer is simple, ask yourself, is your safety worth the money? Driving under non-aligned wheels not only harm your suspension, it will increase FC, more wear to the tyres etc...

I suggest you do the replacement and do the alignment again. Even you want to change your stock rims to 16", its still give you free alignment later. But changing the rims does not related to the chamber.

By the way, mind to tell us what happened to the chamber? How you got such "injuries" to the car?

I send my car 4 allignment. they checked d tyres and found out that 1 of the
tyre 'sudah kena makan sket' (worn out abit sebelah).....and
bcoz of that the chambers also out so have to ganti new chambers on 3 side tyres
which cost rm45 each. i didn't change it yet coz planning to change my stock rim to 16" rim.

After i've done my allignment, my car still not ok. When i'm driving on staright
road the steering is not straight and pull more to the right side...how aar? Should i just leave it just like that until i change new rim or go allignment and balancing again...? Guys...comment?

camber screws are the one that will also align your wheels, but it's from the body side. Just a nut that's all. stock is non adjustable, there are adjustable ones selling outside for the price of RM40 - RM50 depends on service centers.

I am planning to change my set of wheels too. Instead of 16", I opt for 15" coz I think 16" is a bit too big for the space that our accent have (every bump have to go side ways? Razz) and accident fly over bumps will surely hit the fender kao kao.

Now is in survey stage. Rims: spokes Tyres: brands.

any recommendations from our accentians? Question

whats the benefit change to adjustable chamber screw?

in my opinion changing to 15" like "alang-alang", either stick with 14" rim or go for 16"... since I dont see benefits going to 15" so far... any ideas?

for Japanese tyres I recommend lor... nowadays Michelin and Bridgestone all made from Thailand liao Rolling Eyes

when i start using 16" rims, its okay without full passenger. but with full passenger the tyre easily hit the rear fender.
so to resolve that problem i'm using 2 camber nut for both back tyre.
with that we need to adjust the allignment above 1.8.
surely we can pass any bumper or hard corner.
but we need to rotate the tyre every 3 months.

thats all for everybody info.

Just word of mouth from KBSC 223 senior technician, DO NOT install any nuts etc... to the chamber, he repeatively remind me only do wheel alignment.

these people are coning you.

if i m not wrong, Accent uses individual suspension which are not the same as Wira or Iswara. so stay away from being scammed.


sorry... side track a bit...

just want to ask... izit you refering to the chamber nut where it use for wheel alignment? im confuse.

all rx-s version is 15" sport rim. are you sure your are rx-s version or GLS version?

for your info, there is a hidden upgrade from 14" to 15" rim n tyre (applicable to RX-S version only). for RM188, you can upgrade your stock 14" to 15" (195/55/R15).

so far, i have upgrade it to 15" rim (same like RX-S stock 15" sport rim). many ppl said nice if compare to 14" stock rim. why not you ask your salesman about it?

I just change my chamber screws during last week while sending for wheel alignment. According to the shop, they cannot align if the screw is our stock fix type. Bought it only at RM20 / pc. it this not the same as your?

i just changed my stock 14" rims wif ducaro tyres for a brand new 15" JRD rims wif eagle tires on a promotion. however, i realize that the new tyres are relatively smaller to fit the rims, (the width of the tyres doesn't exactly fit the rim, there is a 5mm gaps between them) the tyres are 195/55/R15, which i think that's the standard measurement for accent 15" rims.

the ppl from eneos 1 utama sd the the tyres actually touches the rims already, and Goodyear tyres are like that for JRD rims.

i'm concern over the safety of my wheels now... anyone can give any suggestion?

thanks...

I don't have the car manual with me now, but somewhere towards end of the book will show some references of the car, one of them is car tyres and rims specifications, check with that will give you some clue.
