Default 15'' wheels of SX4 for Esteem

Hi friends,

I dont want to spend much on the alloys wheels, so I was planning to go for 15'' wheels of SX4 VXi for my esteem, the PCD seems to me fine as both are 114.... which tyres would be fine for a 15inch steel rims?

please can you suggest?

Thanks

Only option in 14" for Esteem are Optra rims.

Check with your friendly neighborhood tire and alloy dealer. With a lot of people opting for alloys, it shouldnt be too cumbersome to source optra rims.

Hi friends,
Finally i got hold of four 14'' optra rims for my esteem, tried one, it matches the PCD, but one issue the Hub cap hole is small, taking these to Lathe and getting it changed.
I'm planning to go for Yokohoma ES100, let me know if you have some mixed opinions about them? 185/60/14 how's it?

Regards
