Recently, I'm thinking of changing my stock Rim to 15" rim. I wonder, Will it effect my FC if I change from 14" stock to 15" other brand sport rim? If yes, what cause it? Is it because of the rim weight? or the tyre size (wide tyre)?


Propose you can go for other better alloys which is lighter giving a better fc. You could also change to other better fuel efficient tyres eg Michelin to have better fc. Finally, consider 185/55/R15 which falls within 3% rule of the tyre giving almost the same fc as 185/60/R14

Today I saw one of the tire shop in Pusat Bandar Puchong is having promotion. "2006 tire - buy 3 free 1" I saw the tires with Michellin sticker. But I didn't check the price. The shop is located beside Kopitiam facing main road - LDP.

ok, if you guys really wanna know then i post here but all these are my hear from others, no concrete evidence.

Klang is famous for cheap tyre, solely because they mix "underground" stock which have no subject of warranty and watsoever. Some say some tyre are expired. Very slicky places, i have numerous club's friend from Autoitalia to BMW club, all tell me the same shit.

Trust or not, depends on you and i meant no intention to condemn or defame.

i heard it too when i go and purchase Silverstone Kruizer for my ex-car. then i demand from the boss giving me a new tyre... and i check the tyre before they install. so far so good... but some friends of my having problem with their tyre bought in klang.

if the price of the tyre in klang and PJ/Subang/KL is only around RM10 per tyre... then no point going all over there to buy... save petrol and toll.

plus if got problem, you have to drive all the way back there to claim...

each car has different weight, height, dimension, size etc...

look into your car manual and follow the recommended size of tyre.

195/55/15 and 185/55/15 is almost the same except 195 will have better stability and higher FC. the more important thing is the 55 in the mid section because ur comfort relies on that.
