Wrong upsize, man. Try to exchange the tyres for the correct set asap so that u don lose much.

Thumbs up problem solved

i went to the same dude who sold me the tyre n rim set. he banged the wheel arches and wells with a plastic hammer and sorted out the problem. now even when i'm turning 180 degrees, the tyres dont touch. best part is that there is no change in the appearance of the car from the outside of the wheel arches.

as i had mentioned earlier, even with 4 dudes on board, the rear wheels never touched. now after these simple slam bang mod, even the front tyres dont touch anywhere. even on bumpy roads.

i have known this tyre dude for a while now(6-7 years) and i posed all the queries that i got in the form of replies on this thread. he told me if i face any problem with the suspension at ANY TIME i have these rims on, he'll replace the suspension for me!

nothing more that i can ask for i guess...

now that this tension is over, i can concentrate on modding my car as i want.

CHEERS and thanks for all your replies and concerns,

regards to all

hi everybody.

today i bought new tyres for my ride. those 60 profile tyres from goodyear were no good at all. so i went ahead with 185/45r14's and what a difference it has made to the ride quality. amazing to say the least.

thanks for all your opinions and help,

regards
