I just read your thread and I haven't heard anything like that before.
Did you approach the service center or the shop from which you bought the tires?
I haven't upgraded my tires yet. But now I'm confused!!
I own a VW Polo Comfortline, which has stock 175/70R14 tyres on steel rims.
I am looking forward to upgrade to 16" rims with 195/50R16 tyres. View attachment 69011
I know Polo wheels are 5 bolt PCD100
Can someone tell me if the Barcelona wheels are also 100PCD, as in, will they fit on the Polo with 195/50R16 tyres?
Hi, It is good to upgrade to 15" not 16". If you have more than 15" there are high chances that your will may hit the bottom of car on the fender side. When I was checking about upgrading the wheel size for my car, I was recommended in the tyre stores that I can upgrade to a max of 1" from the stock not more than that.
Hi everyone, i am new to this forum.I would like to know, if I change my OEM stock 15" on VW polo highline to 17" . Is it gonna really affect my ride knowing how Indian roads are. I am getting the same wheels PREM13 has got for his swift VDI , however they are 17".
I am purchasing them from Bangkok and are costing me 31k for 4 wheels and have been suggested by the dealer to go for 215/50 , which under my impression will be a little rough ride .kindly advise on the same. Thanks in advance .
Where do you get those alloys from? The VW dealer or some other source? The alloys look beautiful. Love it.
BTW, I think the Jetta and Passat have a different PCD compared to the Polo. Not very sure though.
Btw, if you car is under warranty or extended warranty make sure you ask the dealer before you upsize the rims.
A Chevy dealer said that upsizing from 14"-15" alloys will void the warranty.
Make sure you maintain the rolling radius.If you increase the diameter of the rim, you need to reduce the sidewall height to compensate.
The reduced sidewall height will make the ride quality harsh but you will get increase grip and stability at higher speeds.Make sure you choose the right tires depending on the speed you constantly drive at.
