Smile Help - 14" Alloys on Santro Xing

Hey guys,

Does anyone have any idea if we can fit 14" rims with 185/60/14 tyres on a Santro. Will it foul anywhere and we any modifications to the suspension hav eto be made. I have a set lying with me and since am not getting any offers thought if possible I could fit them in my Santro.

Technically you can fit 14" wheels, but not with 185/60 R14. 185/55 R14 would be more like it but, i'm not sure if the suspenssion is capable of taking such a low profile.

Why don't you go in for 185/60 R13? That'l work just fine.

In this case, forget them. Not worth it.
