international tyre and saifee behind choksi are supposed to be the best.
i did not have the time ,so i got one from mulund,as the looks were secondary to me,it was the wider tire that mattered.as u do not have much options for a rim on the zen

hey.. guys...
I have a wagon R. Want to change the tyres.
currently running 145/70 R13

I wanted Michelin Certis but .. i guess they aren't available for 155/65 R13....
Next option is 165/60 R13 (available in Michelin)

Ride height will decrease by 5mm... but.. that shouldn't be a problem.
But is 165 too much for a wagonR too..... for zen it sometimes does touch the body.

I think 165 would be ok.... as maruti gives 155 .. so 1 upsize shouldn't cause much problem.

What do you say?

155/65r13 can be safely fitted on a wagon r as the new vxi has this tire.165/60r13 also has accpetable OD .these can be fit with 5j or 5.5j rims
the enxt upsize is 185/55r13.but for that u will have to check if the 185 tire touches anywhere
