    FIAT Yamaha , go for 185/70 14 tires. That's almost the ideal size.

    Ok people need helo/guidance
    Since I have chosen to go for 17" rims need to select the size of the tyres to put on them. Which do u think would be better
    1. 205/40/ R17
    2. 205/45/ R17
    3. 215/45/ R17
    4. 205/50/ R17

    Harmony & Choas
  3. i would say get the 205/50!!
    it has got the maximum side profile, you will get the best shock absorbing possible.

    185/70 size is the best size you can fit in a 14" rim..Many other cars also use these profile..

    @phew

    i used all sizes xcept 205/50..(is it really available ? ? correct me if m wrong)

    IMO 205/45/r17 best size for our punto, with 215/45 u feel soft suspension comp. to 205/45 but griiping level also reduced too much yeh TOO MUCH with 215/45 so better stick with 205/45r17


    About tire brand i used bf, goodyear, yoko ar1, yokos are best and last long i am using it from last 30000 kms

    and some weeks before i pm`d you about yoko`s , that pulling problem was sorted out now by company so try to buy only after march produced tires
