I am currently using:

2 front tires - Accelera Alpha 195/50/R16
1 right rear tire - Accelera Alpha 195/50/R16 (W/ BULGE AND NEEDS REPLACEMENT)
1 left rear tire - Goodyear Eagle F1 195/50/R16

Here are my questions:
- Any comment about Accelera tires?

- Is it ok if I use 2 different brand of tires for my ride? (e.g 3 tires are Accelera at 1 tire ay Goodyear)

- Or should I use 2 different brand of tires but in pairs? (e.g. both accelera) and rear (e.g both goodyear)?

- Do I need to replace my tires in pairs? Because my left rear tire has bulge.

Sorry but am just a newbie and this is my 1st time to replace a tire.

Nice suggestion sir! Ok, I'll look for a Goodyear tire for my right rear mag wheels.

Or if the Goodyear tire cost a lot I may opt to buy 2 new Accelera tires so all my tires will be of the same brand.

If this happens, I shall use my current Goodyear tire as my spare.

Thanks again.

Hi Sir Fix,

Thanks for this additional input.

I bought our Nissan Sentra Wagon (California) fitted with 195/50/16. I know the stock is only r13.

I am newbie when it comes automobile so I hope you could elaborate more about "the 195 50s and up strain ur car a lot" and "they caused a great deal of damage".

Is it also true that 16 mag wheels can affect the accuracy of my odometer reading?

Our Nissan Sentra Wagon (California) is basically a family car. I seldom drive fast. The fastest I got is 80km/h...hehehe...

So, with this data, am I alright with 195/50/16? or I still need to use 205 40 16?

How can I recalibrate my odometer reading?

As I mentioned before I am using the following tires (w/ 80% tire thread):

2 Accelera Alpha 195/50/16 front tires
1 Accelera Alpha 195/50/16 right rear tire (w/ bulge and needs replacement)
1 Goodyear Eagle F1 195/50/16 left rear tire

Option 1: (Brand new purchase)
2 pcs. Goodyear Ventura 195/50/16 (Code 3406) for the rear tires

Option 2: (2nd hand purchase)
4 pcs. Accelera Alpha 205/50/16

I need your inputs, thanks!

is it ok to buy a brand new tire with a code 3406 (manufactured on the 34th week of 2006)?
Guys, I bought this tires because I can't back out since I already made a down payment.

I just hope I can use it for 4 more years even it was manufacture on the 34th week of 2006.

I read on an Internet article that tires have 6 years of lifespan.
