Dear all,

i am currently driving a 1.5 MT Wira. Seriously considering a change to
Kelisa. Got a question: has anyone fitted a kelisa with 15 inch rims? If
so would like to read comments on drivability after the
switch....planning to move the rims from my wira to kelisa....tq

yeah...got a fren using 15" rims on kelisa....but i think u would hav to
change thinner tyre......in fact there r so many kenari's using 15" rims.....so
shouldn't be a prob.....heard top spead increases....as kelisa can go more
than 160 km/h....wif bigger rims....should be around 170-180.....not
sure.......but pick up might not be as good.....but i've drove the car b4......1st
to 2nd gear can easily wheel spin....maybe tats b'coz my fren is using light
rims and he had done p&p n other upgrades b4......but he say using his ori
13" rims.....even 2nd to 3rd gear can wheel spin.......

14 and 15 inchers on a kelisa and kenari should not be a problem.....
most of K2OC members that changed to 15 are running on 165/50/15.....
maybe u can opt for 165/45/15 (hard ride) or 165/55/15 (kinda rare in
malaysia)........

but if u seriously wan the look, a 15 is the one u should go for...gotta
scarifice ride comfort for style......i am running 15 on my kenari......
so far no complaint......

Errr...It is not recommended to use wider tyres for your Kelisa cos it
will throw off the steering geometry eventhough the PCD and offset are
the same. Furthermore your 15inch at leasr 195, and not 165...
