Question Alloys for GETZ

I recently got my Passion Red GETZ GLS...
I upgraded from 13" wheels to 14" Neo Chrome Alloy
with 185/60R14 Ducaro Goodyear tyres in lieu of 170/60R13
The look of the car has definitly changed...

The ride has become a lot more bumby now...
Is there something wrong with the selection of wheels/tryes...

Any suggestions,...

Hey,

You did mean upgrade from 175/70/13 didn't you. I also got delivery of my GLS on the 8th of December which had the above size tyres. I have upgraded to 195/60/14 on stock rims not alloys. I have Yokohoma ES 100 tyres. The ride of my car has become just amazing in all aspects.

In your case I guess the tyres will be the culprit.

I wanted to know how will be the ride quality if I opt for AURA alloys 15" for my Swift, with 195/60/15, Bridgestone GIII. Twice I went to the dealers at JC rd, B'lore, I came back without changing bcoz the tyres was looking used.

Pls suggest what are the advantages b/w Aura, League & HR. Though Aura being an Indian Comp (can expect warranty).

It would be best to go for Aura... I went for neo since Aura did not have a Chrome Finish... Aura is a better brand than Neo and his highly reputed with great quality too...

Am going to my tyre dealer to discuss with him...

Hey Viper do post the photos... would love to see them,...

Default Improper centering

If you have vibrations at higher speed (close to 100kmph) could be because your alloy wheels aren't well centered. Get hub-centric rings installed. More details see http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/tyre-a...-new-post.html
