Everybody seems to be ready to change the original Picanto rim from 14in. to 15 or 16 in. including me. Will it affect the suspension or is there any recommended shock absorbers?

I think 16 is pushing it.
Yup.. 16 _IS_ pushing it. I dont think they will even fit. If they do I would strongly recommend you to go see a mechanic about suspension/controls.

Hello!!!

I have changed my tires to the optional 195/45 R15. Yes, this change affect the suspension and comfort but increases the performace and the sensations a lot. I think is a good change if you drive in good conditons roads.

the maximum it will fit without a wide body conversion is 17x7 Rims with 205/40/17 tyres :) Cheers
For real??? If you have fitted 17 " rims on your Picanto then feel free to post images of it :)

tire size

recently, i replaced the tires of my picanto to 175/65/14. here in the Philippines, the original tire size cost much. so i decided to replaced it with a bigger one. the ride seems to be more comfortable.

Hi

I have 4 new alloys to fit once the snow clears, they are 15inch with 175/50R15 kumho tyres which is fitted on the picanto 3. Only worry i have is the alloy is 6.5inches wide and the booklet and the label on the door sill states 5.5inch wide.

Will post when i finally get them fitted.

John

P.S I went for kumho as fitted to my 14inch steels which are 165/60R14 as the so called performance tyres most companies sell look like summer dry weather tyres.

And after over 4 years he never did Post any pictures...

I too am helping a friend look at lowering the ride height & fit bigger rims with lower profile to keep the right rolling circumference and affset.

Any ideas anyone? Pics would be cool!
