1st of all, i have posted that my behind tyre kena fender and i have receive all comment from here and my car ower forum. Overall i bring back told them i have this kind of problem and the guy ( claim to be pro in sports rim and tyre ) explain to me is not the tyre problem, is your car fender problem then i ask him what is your solution that you propose to me, and he said he will do the chamber thing some sort like changing screw and for that you have to paid for everything including changing the screw n do allingment and balancing. so i ask him did u said if i have any problem and you will settle for me once i install this set of rim and tyre from you, he told me that now is not the tyre problem is you car fender problem. i mean wtf total different thing from wat u saying b4. then fine i said i will be back if i wanna change.

so yesterday i went to hyundai service centre ( since im driving hyundai car ) told all the problem that im having for now after install the rim n tyre and they said they will do checking for the rim n tyre, after 30 minute the mechanic guy walk in and explain to me, for standard 195/??/15 shud use 195/50/15 is the best combination of the tyre, wtf that shop guy told me this is the best combiantion for my rims size, how come different ppl told me different story.

then fine with that, my car steering was shacking when i reach 140kmh-150kmh, so the mechanic guy ask me did i add those centre cone for the sports rim then the shop guy did intro me and install only 2 while shud 1 set coming in 4, walau, paying price for 4 cone then get 2 only. overall no responsible from the shop said will fix everything when have problem at last have to paid also, paying 4 centre cone price only get 2. @#$%^ mad.gif

Heng Meng Auto Service Centre In Danau Kota not recommended although the boss is quite good to dealing with but the workers sucks ...

my eyes gonna pop out liao bradder. calm down and list your problems properly.

1 - in line 2 , paragraph 1 - mechanic say car fender problem not tyre problem.
in line 5 , paragraph 1 - mechanic still say fender problem not tyre problem.


so meaning he was right la

2 - there is no best combination for rim & tyres. there is threshold as in minimum limit and max limit. 195 refers to the width, the middle 50/60 refers to the height of the tyres from the edge of the rim and the rim size number behind.
people who prefer lower rides and better looks tend to go for lower profile tyres.
old man who likes comfort go for higher profiles like me. 70 series in which they call it, refers to 70mm from tip of rim to edge to tyre. so the higher the profile, the more comfort you obtain.

tyre's is all about what you like. u can have 45 series with 190 on a 15". doesnt matter. your money your call. but u need to know what suits u best.

however, i thank you for the advice u have provided. i will be wary if i ever pay heng meng auto a visit.

Just to clear things up for u ... xxx/70/Rxx .. the 70 doesnt means 70mm .. instead it means 70% of the width of the tyre..

example .. 195/50/R15 .... 195mm width of the tyre... the high of the tyre is .. 195mm x 50% = 97.5mm and the R15 means it fits on 15" rims

actually the problem is call rim "OFFSET". your new rim offset does not match the original lateral position of the rim and tire. so in your case your tire is place further outside of its normal position. then when you drive fast on uneven road/ bump, your tire will scratch your fender. next time find a suitable offset when you buy a new spanking sport rim.

My friend the 70 is not the heigt in mm, it's called the aspect ratio which is expressed as a percentage of the tyre width. 70 means the height of the tyre is 70% the width of the tyre. 195 / 55 means tyre width is 195 mm and tyre height is 195 x 55% = 105.25 mm.

First of all who idea on selecting the rim & tyre type. You or the mechanic? If the mechanic choose it than he should be responsible on this problem. If not then you can't blame the mechanic explanation to you like that. I don't see any problem with the mechanic told you about your car.

Usually when you paid & change the rim & tyre. The workshop will to balancing & alignment for you FOC. They only fix/responsible on the problem of the rim & tyre if you feel anything are not right. You can go back and ask for a change.

If the tyres kena fender the problem is not on your tyre & rim is on your car fender not wide enough or poor selection choice of tyre size. Since you already fix the rim & tyre the mechanic have no choice but need to adjust the chamber in order your tyre & rim tilt inward just to make the tyre not to hit the fender. In order to adjust the chamber their need to change an adjustable pin cause our car come out from factory the pin can't be adjust. Changing the pin we need to paid & it is not cheap for 1 pin.

As for your wheel shaking driving high speed. You need to ask the mechanic do the high speed balancing. High speed balancing changes different rate compare to normal balancing. You also need to paid for that.

The main culprit to this whole issue is the wheel. The wheel offset is causing the wheel to "extend" outside more, hence hitting the fender when bumping or cornering.

for the rim is i choose myself and i also ask the boss is this rim will fit to my car? he said no problem, then fine for me, when going to the tyre i choose the eagle f1 tyre and the boss n staff over there recommended me to go for 195/55/15, i do read some topics in my car forum saying that after changing rim will kena fender wan, so i ask him will this thing will kena my fender after the installation? all answer that i get is it wont and having problem just come back to us.

since im not so good in all this, what i have to do is just to believe on what they recommend and do according to what they said, facing problem then go back to them and when at there different story coming out. sienz la. and 1 more thing they only do the balancing and no alingment has been done, when i ask no need do alingment? the mechanic said no need i already been test driving and no problem with that.

If that the case. I think the boss should solve your problem by changing the tyre for you.

So, did the boss change the tyre for you? Since is the tyre choice the boss recommend are not right.

Maybe you need to check on the inner rim to check whether the cone got stuck there are not.

The cone/ring you guys mentioned is it a thin aluminium ring that is installed between the centre hub and the centre of the rim? If yes i think that is the biggest con job because that ring does nothing useful at all. I didn't install that and i have no problems at all.

Steering vibration just means the tyre balancing is not done properly. How they mount the tyres also affects it's balance, if you notice on new tyres there is always two paint dots, one red and one yellow, these dots are actually marking the heavy and light portion of the tyre. Which is which i can't remember but i know when they mount the tyre to the rim they must line up one of those dots to the tyre valve. Then comes the balancing part which is static and dynamic. Static balances the up down bounce and dynamic balances the right and left swing. Both needs to be done to get the best results.

No offence. Its not a good idea to skim the rim. You might cause the rim become weaker or unbalance.

I don't care where you going to skim the rim. Once the rim being disturbed from the original state it will not be prefect anymore.

If the rim can be skim why the manufacturer provided different offset for their consumer to choose from. That why when you choosing rim must choose the correct rim for your car. Skimming the rim is not the right option to solve his problem.

I am speechless. Maybe you can tell us more about skimming in technical. It will help us to understand more about skimming.

I think Wheel manufacturer can come out only one offset wheel type. Since mechanic can skim the wheel offset. rclxms.gif This is the mentality of a Malaysian anything also BOLEH notworthy.gif

HUH??? Please read ppl reply carfully. My reply to you mean if you can do skimming the offset than the manufacturer no need come out so many different offset then better come out one offset. Now u say I told ppl manufacturer got one offset wheel. LOL rclxms.gif

If you don't know say so loh. why say no need to answer me. LOL rclxms.gif

Ask any wheel manufacturers. Let us know which wheel manufacturers recommend can skim their wheel.

Again & again you try to avoid my question to you about skimming rim you trying to recommend ppls to do. Stop talking crap & start talk some sense here.

Ppls in the forum want share & learn. But for you just recommend ppls to skimming rim without supporting proof that skimming will do no harm on the wheel or maybe you can show us about some write up about skimming rim also will do. This is very simple question I asking from you not like I scold you & step down on you. Why you will so offended?

All you need is just proof me wrong. That it. Like that you also cannot do?

Did I shoot you? Is just my opinion that skimming rim is not recommended that it I didn't say anything bad about you & bla bla bla. Please go back and read my first post to you carefully. That why I say please don't get offended about my comment.

So are you tyre & rim expert here?

Skimming rim will do no harm is based on your experience or technically?

You already feel so offended about my disagreement on your suggestion. So, I must act dumb dumb and ask the PRO here. Maybe there are something new I can learn from the PRO here mah. We are never be to old to learn new thing right?

Hmmm......... I think I can fit in those Nice & Big design wheel on my small car. Some good design don't have the right offset on my car. Just skim abit the offset can already rclxm9.gif am I right?

Did you do skimming rim? Can recommend me good skimming workshop? I stay KL & PJ area.

Thank you so much in advance Sifu notworthy.gif
