guys,

i have changed my rims from 5.5 j Neo to 5J aura.the 5.5 j rims used to touch in the rear even with one person in the rear.also it used to touch in the front.the rires are the same 155/65r13 goodyear GT3 tubeless.

so i have changed to 5j rims and now the problem has been solved.
this cost me an additional 2k rupees which i had to pay in exchange of my older rims.

now with 5j rims,the handling has improved marginally and also the tire squeal when i brake is not there.

cheers,

satya

But, what power does it have? With 325mm tyres, it better be close to 500bhp and around 400-600nm of torque.

Accent GLS '02 on second set of tyres:

185/55/R14 MRF on 14" J6 Malaysian alloys. Switched to MRF after original Bridgestones ran out at 26k kms - had some tyre noise and wheel balance issues at first but the tyres settled down after a brief 'running in period' (!!!!!!!!) and are now silent, stable, dependable at speeds and best of all show very little wear after 14k kms more.

Wish I had gone tubeless, though...

Cheers
