If I go with 165/60/R13 - Bridgestone Potenza G3 - can I get the alloys with 6j.

Will it be of any issue.

to add to prsnck, I've seen 14" 5j alloys (not sure if it was 5 or 6), will 165/60 R13 fit into 14" (5j or 6j) alloys without any issues?

Wow neat! Please put up some pics of the zen and those switches. Also how much did it cost you for all of this?

my rear tires touch the fender or say body line when i am driving at high speed and i pass throug a rough road. i will try to post some pics the rear tyres have developed cutts on the sides.

and the front end also trouches the arcs when i brake i have also reacently got the suspension over hauled.

Sure i would post the pics. i liked the front leds. but the speedo console i am not liking them cause the light is concentrated on just one place it is not spreading on all of the console. though the light is white i am liking it but my personal opinion if that if the light could spread around in the back ground to give a proper lighting to all of the console it would be great.

@k_shanz. : - did you do any major mods to fit the 1 inchers and 195's. i woud love to have them but then the problem is that i generaly drive on the roads that i have bumps and pathholes and that also some times major ones. what should i do . i love my zen as i think its the best small car in indian market till date.
