Default Tyre Service

What are the best tyres that I can fit on a Maruti Zen (2005 Model, with just 14,000 Kms till date)?
I am totally confused after I visited a few dealers in Mumbai. Basically I know they will always tend to push a brand where they get the maximum margins, so I find it really hard to trust them.
SUGGESTION PLEASE

Hmm... I believe that the tyre size on your car is 145/80 R12, in which you have very few options. I would suggest you go in for Bridgestone Turanza's in that size if you do not wanna upgrade to 13" wheels & tyres.

[COLOR=black]Will upgrading to a 13" Wheel & Tubeless affect the cars balancing or handling in any way. If thereís an improvement then itís G8, but would it hamper the steering column in anyway?[/COLOR]
