Stock size is best from the prospective of a thicker tyre side wall to cushion impacts and bumps on the Rd


The funny thing is, for my ride, factory stock size is 205/55R17... but come Singapore stock size become 205/60R16... so who to follow?? 😅

both can la, no worry.

 

my advice is dun go for something or some tyre very rare that tyres shop dun keep.

when u urgent blow 1 and need replacement, they tell u no stock, must order,

cause alot of delay etc etc.

 

but if your regular tyre shop alway have this size available, then no worry .

just get a 17' rims that fit 205 width nicely can already

https://www.wheel-size.com/

 

key in your vehicle details and you will see both sizes are ok.

 

keep to stock 205/60/16. tire shop is WRONG to suggest 225/55/16. a 6.5x16 size rims with the width as 6.5in will not be able to accommodate the 225/55/16 tire well. the ideal size is 7in.

 

although the tire manufacturer says its ok to use 6"-8" wheels for a 225/55/16 tire. i would prefer a 7in.

Go for Singapore stick size, as speedometer may have been calibrated.

205/60R16 is also easier to get at the shops.

you meant the Stock size is 205/55/17 (what made you said that and From ?)

technically both size is suitable/ exchangeable (205/60/16 and 205/55/17) .

tires optional size in easily check from your Car Owners manual or Tire label with Pressure shown.

if you can find any details , you can always look for other option like Tire manufacturers conversion chart, or your own calculation or any one sharing here with their own experiences.

just make sure you know what you are doing and choice.

just MHO

The thing is I do not want to.

But my Dad's Hyundai Accent is a bread and butter car and he does not want to spend so much.

Because 175/70/r14 is a very rare size, the difference in price between this and 175/65/14 is about 30% different.

For 4 wheels, the amount is quite substantial.

By changing from 70 to 65 would reduce the overall diameter of the wheel, resulting in incorrect speedo meter reading. The car is travelling at lower than its intended speed. And you need to press the accelerator more to achieve the same speed, resulting in higher consumption.
