Actually the best option would have been for you to for 185/70 R14 as they would not have spilled over or go for 195/70 R14 which is a correct upsize.

However, for rims I would suggest you also ask around the local tyre shops in your area & ask them to inform you if some good deals come along.

185\70 sounds big and not sporty personally

cheers man

Hey cyneverdie. i too have the same tire size(195/60/R15) for my car. I regret getting them. Could you explain the JJ stuff? And would u suggest that i get new alloys for the same tire size or stick on to the original rims.

Yeah, there was a bit of a difference in the ride quality. No issues with it. Got used to it now.
