Default Hi

Decided to put in alloys on my crdi.Went and checked a couple of them.I liked one HR and another league one.14" (4 nos) were priced at 14K.what is the best tyre combo.I saw a goodyear 195..and a falken 205/60/14 at 3k per piece.
What are the changes with respect to ride/handling/speed when i change to 195/14".

Hey Artofzen,

Regarding the pricing of the wheels, you usually get a set of 5 14" wheels for 16k (in bbay) so 4 for 14k sounds like a decent deal?

As for the tires, i definitely wouldnt go more than 195s.
185s if you want to be sensible, or 195s if you want to be a bit adventurous, but remember that the tire you choose has a bigger impact on the handling etc than the width of it.
