rim width will also depend on the tyres that you purchase...for eg 5 to 6.5 is the recommended width for the 185 section width....if you go to 6inches for say 165 width..the ride quality will worsen sunstantially as the rim no longer supports that natural sidewall curvature of the tyre...

would like to hear different opinions about 15" rims...defn look better than 14"...how is the ride quality though...

WHY DO U THINK SO??????? .if its void on 15 inch it has to be void on your 14 inch as well.


also the warranty thing depends a lot on your relation with the local MASS .

inspite of all my mods ,my warranty stands unaffected.

Don't worry I haven't taken her past 95kmph and never revved her up beyond 2.5 K RPM

I used the factory tyre pressure. Haven't taken her to get her air checked.
