|The only thing is, you'll throw off your speedometer a little - 185/65/14s would bring it closer to, at least, whichever % error it left the factory with.|
Thanks for the reply.
I realize it will affect the speedometer. That is actually part of the reason I am thinking about making this change.
According to my GPS, the speedometer is reading about 3% high. These tires are about 2% taller (this is only about 1/4 inch increase in radius).
|Your speedometer is 3% off from the factory? Is that normal?|
|There's always about a 5% error margin. Remember, even amongst 175/70R14s, there can be rather large height differences amongst different tires/manufacturers.|
Mine came with 195/60 R16 from the factory. The only other size available from the factory is 185/65 R15. We have no 14" wheels/tyres combo for the Accent in India.
With the 195/60 the speed shown on the console and my GPS are the same..
