Default Exchange - 185 Michelin Tyres -with- 175 Honda City Tyres

I got Michelin Certis tyres 185/70/14 inch in my swift vxi.

(made in Thailand) Michelin Thailand

It originally came with 165/14 tyres which are too thin, and 185 are too wide for heavy swift. Instead i prefer 175/14 tyres.

At the same time I think 185 are suitable for City also. SO it should be win-win.

My tyres are in very good condition, i can take pics.
I has around ~6500Kms

If anyone got Tyres with similar mileage (Bridgestone prefered), I am willing to exchange it. Send me more details.

-----------------


Others - please let me know if i am at a loss since my Michelns are more expensive.

I'm confused. You got 185/70-14 and you want to change them for 175-14.

185/70-14 is the correct swift size. The ZXi comes in that tyres size. Moreover 175/75-14 which is the right size will be very difficult to find. The honda city uses 175/65-14 which is a very very wrong size for the swift.

Stick with the 185's, they are perfect for teh swift.
