trust me... smile.gif I'm using 15" the recommended pressure is 215kPA which is around 31 PSI...
i use that on my Vios... yes it maybe a bit hard... try out... smile.gif
i check pressure once in a fortnight...
try Michelin or Yokohama...

or add another 2~3 PSI to your recommended pressure...

should not be tat low pressure... mostly now all the cars is over 200kPA... not 20kPA only...

new Vios i duno... but 1st generation if not mistaken... is 215kPA (31~32PSI) Front and 210kPA (30~31PSI) Back...


Try to go to the link provided... Yokohama and Michelin stats..

Why there is no price list for 185/60R15 (for Vios)?
*
Well that is an odd ize... try 195/55 R15...
i think you can find most of the price at this forum...
BTW Primacy for that size only selling at RM200 at Ban Hooi Klang... smile.gif

http://www.1010tires.com/TireSizeCalculator.asp

It shows there good fit... although it's diameter is a bit smaller... Diameter Difference: -1.27%
well you can try 195/60 R15 also as the diameter is a bit bigger... Diameter Difference: +1.95%


QUOTE(hazremi @ Apr 21 2009, 04:32 PM)
is it new vios?

u use same pressure for front and behind?
*
I'm using the 1st generation of Vios... different... back if not mistaken 1~2 PSI lesser...

QUOTE(lIMlIM @ Apr 22 2009, 03:29 AM)
dun use sime tyres !!!
the tyres thread design look very good and deep, but its like shit when raining.
bro, ur life worth more then rm 140 leh.
*
it depends on which tyres... NCT5 sucks... others i duno...
as i use Michelin from Day 1 when i start my driving...
the Vios come as stock... did not use very frequently... but i have a few cases which it activates my ABS easily...
especially going down slope when raining... unsure.gif

how you know ABS kick-in? brake pedal vibrate right?

losing grip while going down slop in wet is pretty normal, especially light car like vios, unless you're using sport tyres, did i mentioned semi-slick? rolleyes.gif
*
well you can hear a sound... like when you try to shift without pressing on the cluth pedal in manual model...
not tat loud... but can hear... NCT5 that time i was using...
after change to PP2... no such problem... even in car park with Cement floor also... very very seldom ABS will get activated...
Sorry it is not normal..... if your tyre is good no problem... don tell me that go down the slope this will happen...
ask those tyre expert... this will not happen if the tyre you bought have good grip...

Try to go to www.tirerack.com read more on the tire review...


@kcng,

No that is not the speed... when you brake... which is makes your car stop faster???
you must have a good braking system... then i ask you... what is the contact between your car with the road???
TYRES!!!! this is the shoe... if you are wearing cheap shoes you lose grip very fast...
what if you buy a better shoe... of course it will improve...
of course this will repay you with more $$ you need to spend on the tires...

on Michelin PP2 i never have problem during cars and dogs raining condition... i drive 110~130 km/h on highway during that time also...
Remember... cheap things never come good... good things never come cheap!!!

Hitting fender can be a few reasons, and also there's hitting inside and also hitting outside, what i'm refering to is more like rubbing on the inside when turning full lock(for example, u-turn), which is why I have no ideas if the person used the stock wheels, or aftermarket wheels, I would say aftermarket wheels wouldn't cause a problem as most of the time it's wider and also bigger offset, probably he was running the stock Type-G/S wheels which are very narrow and have a small offset.
*
I did not face this problem with 195/55 R15 PP2 with my 1st Gen Vios 1.5G...
actually i think maybe after market rim may cause that problem also... depends the offset lo...
if he bought a rim with nicely fitting should not be problem...
I saw a lot of ppl using 16" or 17" rim also they do not have complain...

to whom may concerns you may ask the users in the Vios forum...

but why sime? i thought you need a tyre with reinforced sidewall? brows.gif

p/s: guys, any feedback on bridgestone re001 or barum bravia? or recommend me a nice directional thread tyres(195/55/r15).
thanks  icon_rolleyes.gif

you can try Hankook V12 195/55/r15... a lot of good review...
should not be more than RM200... rclxm9.gif Michelin PP2 will cost RM230 cheapest and not directional tyres...
good dry and wet handling with reasonable price... smile.gif

@rockstar teddy,

PP2 a lot of ppl will satisfy and V12 is good for budget...
