Raj - There are quite a few options in 15". Try contacting the Lenso & HR distributors for more options.

Default MY advice

Sunny,

I own an Optra, and run the same tire size as you currently have. I would NOT recommend going higher than a 16 inch rim. Here's why:

1) The suspension bushings on the Optra will not like the lack of cushioning from thinner tires. Same would probably apply for the wheel bearings. The increased weight won't help either.

2) With a 16 inch rim, you can get a 205/55 R16 Michelin MXV8 Energy set of tires, known for GREAT ride, handling and improved fuel efficiency

3) 16's look very good on the car and don't cost as much as 17s+. 16 inch tires cost 7-8K per tire. 17s and larger cost significantly more.


If you're serious about selling your OEM rims, please let me know. I'll buy them off you. Good luck.

sunster - Have you changed alloys for your magnum? any updates? because even i am planning to change alloys for my elantra.

I even searched Lenso & HR alloys(114.3pcd) 15" but none of them were looking rallyish type. The best i could find is the one i posted above.
