Nice one. Anything you need, just ask. I'll be glad to help if i can.


What tires do you have on? 175/50 R14 are not easy to find ( I think Sonar is the only one that still produce these )

Yes I have that size,I think they are Maxxis (?) not sure ,must check out.

Now Im aware that is dificult to find tyres in that size,also read that the Sonars are not a good or a safe tyre. So whats the better solution for that?
Change wheel and tyres size ? Or can I fit other tyre size on the 14 wheels ?

Re: Newbie here..

Thanks, as I already had a heating almost problem( I stoped in time) and because here is very hot in summer, I was wondering what can I do to upgrade the cooling system?
Already ordered a water temperature gauge.

I don't think you can do much. I've installed an water temp sensor and cleaned the radiator. On mine temperature it's around 110. When I stop I always stop the engine. I've talked to a guy that made a hole somewhere and fixed the temperature problem but I didn't asked where 😂.

Tires are a big problem, if you have abs the only 2 measures you can mount are 165 55 13 and 175 50 14. On the 13" I use the nankang toursport and they perform well but on 14" you find only ****tie sonar and trust me, it's better not to have them and run on rims directly. I would suggest to mount a different measure and stay away from the cops 😂
