But the Sfxi came with 185/65/R14.
So it has to be 195/60.
The lancer guys are wierd.
My ride however has gone down like hell so Samurai, i would advise you to put high profile tyres.
Will post pics soon.

Lambo,

Are you really surprised that your ride has become bad with 60 profile tyres! In my opinion, 185/65 is the safest upsize that you can go for w/o sacrificing too on the ride quality.

that way the difference in diameter will only be - 3.46 mm or -0.18 % So when your speedo reads 70kmph, you're actually travelling at 69.87 kmph.

or if you want 15 inch rims then the idea one would be

105/55 R15.
that way the difference in diameter will only be - 11.63 mm or -0.16 % So when your speedo reads 70kmph, you're actually travelling at 69.57 kmph.


Rev
rev i cannot understand these figures is there a mistake:
3.46 mm difference = .18%
11.63 mm difference = .16%

I just calculated myself, he meant .61%

Lambo's upgrade resulted in 10.3mm loss in GC, isn't that too much?
