Thankx Teknicsand,

Do you know exact specification of Mobil 1 sync oil used. The Accent CRDi manual says 15W40 for a multigrade oil and anything above API CH-4 for a standard one. So was the grade on the Mobil 1 sync oil.

185/70-13 would be a little tall for Accent. There are chances of tire scrapping with the wheel wells.
Check before getting that size.

It would hard to find a good tire in that size.
Michelin is not there in that size.

Stick to mineral oil only if you have used to mineral oil for 68k kms.
Mobil Delvac MX and Shell Rimula

If you have paid Rs 1100 for oil, then it has to be mineral oil.

My Accent(GLE) was upgraded with 185/60/R14 and that greatly helps the handling.
