The current trend now is ZE912, Yokohama A.Drive also OK, BUT, stay away
from the Michelin Certis.

Yup, the Certis has been stopped, but there was another lot for small cars
that came it recently. My friend's tyre shop got some, but surprisingly
selling very well because cheap (on offer)

hey guys...inokom matrix comes with original spec tyres size & rims 185/65/R14?

Is there any suggestion whether a change in tyre size or a rim size upgrade is neccesary to improve traction & handling?

currently the matrix 1.6L is running on a 2 years+ Goodyear Ducaro GA 185/65/R14...

Is it wise to go for Michelin Energy XM1 185/60/R14? or 195/60/r14?

i think 185/60 R14 is a bit small.. but 195/60 R14 is not that usual also...
185/65 R14 u can get Falken 912 mah... not bad, worth the price lo around RM130/pc only according to the pricelist

Used to have plenty of 195/60/R14. Nowadays with all sorts of sizes coming out especially in 15" this size have slowed down.
Used to even have 195/55/R14.
If you can find 195/60/R14, then go ahead, if not, stick back to 185/65/R14.... smile_tongue.gif
