    I was just wondering if I can fit a bit wider tyres to my Copen.
    The tyres look reaaly skinny from the back thats why...

    Hi jaspark,you cant put other tyres because your tyre is made exclusive for daihatsu wheels but if you change your wheels(aftermarket),the tyre options are many(for example 195/50/15):think:

    If you like to keep the standard rims you could go with 175/50 R15 tyres.
    I have winter tyres in these dimenions, they are a bit wider and give a more comfortable ride.

    But please do check with the tyre-manufacturer whether tyres of these dimensions are allowed to be used on the standard Copen rims as the rims only have a width of 4,5.
    Only mention it from own experience: Kumho does allow its 175/50R15 winter-tyres on the standard Copen rim, Hankook does not allow it.....:(
