    Hi all,

    Will there be any much impact if i downgrade to 185/60/R15 from 195/60/R15.

    Currently, My machine is going good at 49K with GY Duraplus tyres(195/60/R15).

    I felt i may get a little rise in mileage and so this query raised!

    @vigneshrace It will reduce GC by 6MM . And as the wheel size reduce, it will reduce your FE as well.

    i have Linea classic with tires- 175/70 R14
    with tire pressure recommended 32psi recommended in the manual.
    when i inflate the tires 32psi the car rattles. but when i iflate 33psi the car feels smooth.
    can i go with 33psi even tough manual says 32psi ?

    1 PSI does not matter, but fill in cold tyre to get correct value.

    Will spoil the looks if you go for 185 width on the alloy .. Whats 0.5 kmpl(if any), without the right looks :)

    Friends - your quick opinion is requested and thanked for, in advance.

    I'm looking to change the stock Apollo Accelere on my TJet 2010, now done 47k - 195/60/15. They're not on alloys.

    I'm keen to opt for Yoko Earth 1. Cost obtained 5200 a piece. It suits my budget I guess, in addition to comfort and safety being prime requirements.

    The other choices could be Falken Sincera (4900), Mich xm2 (5800) or Mich P3st (no cost obtained).

    Is there something I should know before I make the final choice? :)
