looks hot boss! However impractical it is, some larger wheels would fill those wheel-wells nicely

thnx and I agree with what you said, but the suspension of the ikon does not allow a tyre with higher profile as its springs touch the tyres.

Default New Shoes for my Indigo!

Changed my rims and tyres. Ion 14" alloys and Turanza ER 60s 195/60/R 14s. Initial experience with the change is good. Noise levels have reduced significantly (compared with the stock GPS 2s), car feels much more stable in braking and cornering. Haven't seen any significant change in FE.

Issues: In slow speeds and reversing, the front wheels touch the mud flaps in large steering angles. Will try and push back the flaps. Any suggestions for this issue?

Options for 195/60/R15 were:

PIC1 - Continental CPC2 - comfort and performance
(Not so soft side wall compared to Primacy LC)
PIC2 - Michelin Primacy LC - pure comfort (soft side wall)
PIC3 - Yoko ES100 - perfromance tires

Went for Continental CPC2 for comfort and performance.
The car is rocking.
