Dude, hang on with the stock tyres, It should last a good 50,000 kms.
After that, you can always change over to tubeless or so.

You should exchange the stock tyres with tubeless one's. 186/60 r14 would be ideal.

And congrats on bookng a great car!

letme explain you why i am asking the question

1. when i took city vtec obviously, everyone suggested for a tyre upgrade since the stock were considered inappropiate, but are the stock 175/65/14 good enough, for handling cornering, breaking etc,

2. ofcourse tube tyres so puchture would be problem, i had horrible experience with ikon, whats the experience of palio owners.

hey windy when are you getting the delivery?

Congratulations to both windsurfer and Fight club in advance.Hope you guys have a rocking time with your new Italians.
Fight club,the stock tyres on 1.6 are good for grip and handling,but you will have to slow down on Mumbai craters.But ride is quite good in general.I think you should wait for some time and see if you are comfortable with stock tyres.185/60 R14 is the perfect upsize for 1.6.

thanks roms, my actual fear is punchtures, and the spare wheel is not alloy so imagine getting a pucchture while you are outdoor and having to do with the spare. Second if i change it now it will fetch a decent value later on not much, but i think i will go with roms advise

Please see my thread on Palio 1.6 upsize in Tyres section. 185/60 is only recomended for better handling. It could make the ride harsher.

thats the fear, its already having a slightly stiffer ride, but if you are planning upgrade go for potenga III, i found it perfect. other option would be to go for tubless but same size.

and by going with Roms advice i meant, not to upgrade now .
