Hello folks, a lot of time to not post anything here :D, that last weekend I change the tires on my baby, the OEM tires Kumho 195/50/16 was worn-out.

After seach a lot and check price, spect and the desing, I shift to GT radial 328 CHAMPIRO 328 - GT Radial USA .

Also increace the tire size to 205/50/16, at moment I gain about 1cm on tire diameter
205*0.50= 102.5 mm versus 195*0.50= 97.5 mm
102.7-97.5= 5.2 mm
0.52 cm * 2 = 1.04 cm tire diameter :D

This little difference wide makes feel the car more stable on curves, and the extra high more comfortable

That is surprisingly cheap... kinda makes me wonder about it's specs... Never heard of that brand before. Sure beats $106 Cooper CS4 tires I bought, but then I bought them below MSRP.

GT Radials are made by Giti which is a company based out of Singapore and ( I believe ) all their tires are made at plants in China. I bought a "Primewell' brand tire as the spare for my Accent which is made by Giti. Primewell is the house brand for Wheel Works and a couple other tire chains in the U.S. They're evidently in the process of trying to bring their higher end tires to the U.S. market.

I went with 195/55rx16 yoko avids. much better ride and handling than stock, plus a recognized brand .
From anything I have ever read, you should always stay within +/-3% of the OEM outside diameter. Those 195/55R16 would be 3.2% larger. It probably wouldnt be a problem, but you wont see me go that high... Although I'm sure the ride quality would be better...

Does anyone know if the Accent odometer is accurate? We know the speedometer is inaccurate, but it seems like Hyundai would have a legal problem if their odometer was overcounting your miles by anything over 1% on properly inflated stock size tires. If the odometer was wrong, overcounting your miles, larger diameter tires might make the odometer count correctly.

Mine gains 2 miles per 100. I checked it out on a stretch of highway with some certified highway markers placed especially for odometer checks... I actually apply the correction whenever I hand calculate my mileage.
