Hi GTO, could you elaborate ? what will be the implications of using 205s ?

Specifically I am asking about 205/60 R15, which I assume are the best alternative to the 185/65 R15 that my Ciaz came with. Do you think it will significantly hit the power ? The 185s do not inspire confidence at all !

I was quite keen on the 205s ... but now you have me thinking !

Upgrade to 195's which is the best but 205's is going a bit overboard for that 1.4L engine.

If you aren't confident in 185's, get a better gripping 195 section to some the issue.

205's would add up to rolling resistance sapping of power that engine.

thanks, you told me what i know to be true but feel bad to accept ! To be honest, apart from the confidence, I was also dreaming blindly of the look that 205s would give the car. But, I will take your advice.

I had plans to flash the ECU with higher power parameters but nothing to justify 205s

As it is a petrol, flashing ecu wont give much power.The maximum gain will be about 10% increase in power.Remaping will be waste of money.195 s will be more than enough for petrol ciaz.Even 135HP swift sport comes with 195s.

Question:
Pending delivery of ZDI+.
I am keen for a tire a tire upgrade from stock 195/55 R16 Apollo to 205/55 R16's. I know, Ciaz ZDI+ already has sufficient ground clearance but I love the look that the 205's will give this car. Mileage is already super. Any suggestions?

I would be taking delivery of a ZXi AT. I am upgrading to 16" alloys, If any one is looking for the 15" alloys and or tires, please send me an offer by PM.

Mods: please delete if it is against the rules to post here. I could not post in the classified section as I am yet to take delivery and do not have the photographs.

The ideal tyre upsize will be 195/60 R15 (less than 2% difference):
It's a fairly common size. You'll have lots of tyre options.
Won't the wider tyre also make the ride quality worse? Also, you're making the sidewall smaller - bringing it from 120.2MM to 117MM. Wont that also have a negative impact?

If ride quality was the only objective, would that mean that Michelin Primacy ST3 is not standard 'eyes closed' solution to this car, because its not available in 185/65?

Hey guys, my ciaz's 185/R15 stock goodyears have little life left at 40,600 km. I am planning to upsize to 195/60-R15.

Looks like Continental MC5 is good. Dealer quotes 5.8k per tyre inclusivenof GST. Is the price right?
