    Default Please Tyre experts question

    I have a NP200 1.6i 8V.

    Currently as standard it has 185x65x15 tyres which will need replacing within the next 2000km's or a week.

    I would really like a more "aggressive look" with tyres. Do you think I will be able to fit a Kumho tyre - 30 x 9.5 x 16 which according to the tyre converter equates to a 241 x 79 x 15 (which there is obviously no size like that), or

    Just stick to the original type and tyre size to maintain OEM spec, performance, fuel consumption etc.

    Any other thoughts?

    I thought jokes were not allowed on the forum.

    Go for it. Will look so cool.

    Slight problem: 16 inch tyres don't fit on 15" rims.

    And the size you need 215/80-16.

    Frikkie is that you? Stay off the gravel, and you won't need aggressive tyres

    That engine is powerless. Consumption and drivebility is a concern.
