Hi Sirs!

I own a 2012 yaris and wanted to change my wheel and tire to 195/50R16 (stock is 185/60R15) and 16 inch rims, would this be ok for a yaris? if not, some help would really be appreciated.

I'd also like to ask where I can buy accessories for the car (projector lights, DVD system), I've been asking around the shops in deira but they dont seem to have them.

TIA!

I suggest a 15" wheels/rims and dont go for projector lights (just a waste of money).

how about lowering spring and/or HID?

HID is a waste of money too, 2012 fairly new car, unless you have problem in your eyesight, its better to get an eye glass.

the amount of lighting system around the town will be surely enough for your requirements, i can even drive with my park lights on :grin:

you can go 16 in lower profile tires and lowered it (Y) or 15 maybe

thanks for the reply sirs! (Y)

i'm not really looking to get my lights brighter. maybe i got the name for the lights wrong, maybe it should be "angel eyes" or it should be "halo lights"? (like the ones on bmw's?). i'm a real noob at this...

and so... 195/50R16 would be ok for the car? i mean, i won't encounter any rubbing anything? any suggestions for the wheel size would greatly be appreciated!

TIA again!

Well, i would suggest, don't go higher than 15" wheels.
Get yourself some BBS or something look alike, REAL JDM style...
If possible, go for HellaFlush or only Flush...
Else, your wish... 8-)

Yes you can use the 195/50R16 tires, the speedometer will be a bit too fast (0.3%), but don't worry about it.
