" HI SRINI,I opted for 14" primarily for 3 reasons----- 1)Wanted better protection for alloys on bad road conditions. 2)Didnot want to sacrifice even an mm of ground clearence. 3)Preferred more comfort (particularly in bad road condition) over better handling.(TOUCHED 110 kmph ONCE AND FOUND HANDLING NOT AT ALL BAD. YES 15" WOULD DEFINITELY BE BETTER IN THIS FRONT) 14" gives me the scope for using higher profile tyres.And I achieved all the three goals with 195/70 14.
