  16. Greg says:

    Je ne suis pas sűr ce que vous essayez de dire.

  17. matthew says:

    did you mod the car at all to fit the 205/40/17 tires im think of putting 17’s on my car but not sure it the 205 will fit

  18. Luke says:

    The stock tires on a kia rio are 175/70R14. Which has a total diameter of 595mm. The total diameter of 205/40R17 is 589mm. That’s only a 1.01% difference, which won’t affect drivability, you want to stay within 3% when changing a tire size. I haven’t put mine on yet, but I think there is enough clearance to fit the 30mm wider tires on, although it is a concern for a sharp turn.

  19. Steeve Bernier says:

  23. Ozgur Yucel says:

    no mods for engine.
    I guess the designer of this face lift has got a little inspiration from my modded rio5.
    Look at the design of the bumpers especially. 🙂
