dear jesal and gamer,


make sure that the rims are not 5.5j.if its 5.5j then you are doomed.be ready to bent wheel arches from the insides,raise ur ride height using spacers .
a max of 5j is okayin a zen.the tire guy may tell anything ,but even 145/70 on 5.5 j rims will have great possibilites of touching the body when fully loaded.
the max you can go for is 5j rims.
but the problem is that u dont have many designs available in 5j and so the tire guys just sell the 5.5j rims.

even i had 5.5j rims on 155/65r13 tires.my handling was f@#$ after i raise the height using spacers and also the front tire used to touch the body on braking .no use talking about the rear tire .


so after 2 months i changed my rims to Aura 5j rims for which i had to pay 2k extra in exchange for the neo bouncer 5.5j.
now the handling is superbb and i can really feel the differnce that the wider tires with slightly lower profile give me.


so dont go for 5.5j rims in a zen.
