Welcome to the forum mkh. There are many threads which talk about the right rubber upgrade for i10. Just use the search feature.

I would personally recommend you an 1.2 i10 as it has a newer, quieter, smoother engine and it would fetch a better resale value compared to the older generation 1.1 engine.

mkh:Without any hesitation pls go for 1.2L kappa eng. Its the best one with more power under the hood.
Any time they may discountine the 1.1L.better to be safe.
Magna is the best of the lot.

I have a couple of things to ask/seek advise from owners/experts
1. The i-10 seems to have small tyres, what is the suggested upgrade and how much would it cost?
2. I guess the 1.1 is a more fuel efficient engine and since i will be using it for city driving 90% is it advisable to go for the 1.2? The cost difference is about 14K for me in Bangalore between magna 1.1 and 1.2. What is the disadvantage if any in the 1.1 engine
Will appreciate any inputs from owners and experts on this, sorry if this is explained in detail in any thread, if so please direct me as i could not locate it
1. You can upgrade to 175/70 R13 or 14 tyres. I have Michelin XM1+ on my i10 on 13" alloy wheels. But you make sure you go for Hyundai Original Alloy wheels and do not buy after market Alloys.

2. Yes, 1.1 is more fuel efficient than 1.2. But 1.2 is a newer and refined engine with more power, good for high way drives. If you are not worried too much about fuel economy you should definitely go for 1.2

If FE is a concern, you can also look at Ritz Petrol also (if you are ok with the looks), as I have heard members getting good FE on the K12 engine.

I have not got more than 12kmpl in city in my 20,000+ kms of driving the i10 Kappa. The best on highway was around 17 i guess.

Exclamation why no other than OEM alloys?

@NFS
I see, we have lot cooler and better options outside the OEM offerings! (for the alloys)
So, any particular reason? that you are suggesting only OEM alloys?

Care.

Ace.

Smile Another i-10 Sportz lover!

Hello guys, I also bought my i-10 Sportz in December, odo reads 2100 KM. I am really happy with i-10 but there is a noise like krr krr comes from Steering column on rough road. I have read lots of fellow BHPians also have the same problem.

Another small rattling noise started coming from the rear side of the car, again on the rough roads. I am not able to figure out what it is. Anyone having the same problem. Is it normal to have such small rattling occurring in new car?

Otherwise Car is too good, I got FE of 17.5-18 (15% AC, 50:50 City & Highway)

Care. Ace.
The culprits are the alloy wheel nuts that come with after market alloys which tends to break up easily or get stuck onto the wheel. I had this problem with my i10 and hence advised not to go for after market alloys
