    less weight = less rolling resistance = less load sa engine = better FC

    mag iimprove ang grip mo sa mas malapad na tires pero pwede mo maramdaman na medyo bumagal ang acceleration.

    lalakas ang consumo mo sa gas

    bigger width of tires means = more grip = more resistance = heavier to roll = more engine power to exert = more fuel consumption

    Alloy rims is more on facial look and better stability, but not on better FC. Even your speedometer reading will not be accurate pag nagpalit ka from factory steel rim into alloy rim.

    ^ using light weight alloy wheels with the same size of orig oem steel rims will help lower ur fc. less weight less power for the engine.

    Oem size na alloy wheels are only 2-4lbs lighter. Hehehe. Thats negligible weight loss.

    Steel Rim size is 15◊5 or 15x5.5 and weighs less than 17-20lbs.

    Alloys at the same size are 15lbs.

    Thanks weisshorn! Yun din ang plano ko same size pa rin para fit yung existing na gulong. Noob Q ulit, hindi pa kasama yung tire pag bumili ka ng alloy rims at 4pcs lang, wala para sa spare? pano ba presyuhan don, per piece or set?
    Me nagpost na nga dito dati na me nabilhan sya at mukang magaling, in-explain pa sa kanya yung mga sukat, specifics etc.,

    Salamat din kina *Mentos at *kimot sa inputs nila.

    Wider tires will have a better grip on the road & will result in better handling on curves. Downside will be more drag, more gas consumption

    Actual weight of an alloy as compared to steel will tell whether youll consume more gas or not. Heavier means more gas

    Mga sirs,

    Tanong lang.

    Meron bang remote na kasama para sa built-in head unit ng ertiga? And wala po bang tweeter sa dash?

    Thanks.

    In that case the numbers presented are reasonable for a modestly displaced engine of 1.4cc

    I just hope the new release will have a better dashboard
