I too have the stock 13" alloys with Bridgestone S248 tube-type 165/80 tyres.
Can I change to a wider tubeless tyre, keeping the same alloys?
I don't want uni-directional tyres, and in Goa I can't get the Yokohamas/Michelin without breaking the bank, so would like suggestions re Indian tyres please.

the stock rim size of the baleno is 165/80 on 13 inch rims...so if you want to keep wider rubber on the same rims the best combination would be 185/70.this way there would be a negligible difference in diameter speedo error wont be much too.

good year should be a good option.depends what are you looking for.performance or comfort ??

VTEC - Good Year Eagle F1 GS D2 185/60 R14 on stock rims, found them to be much better than the previous RE88 Potenzas I was running.

Santro - Bridgestone B350 165/65 R13, don't know much about this since its my mother's car but got the tires changed when I took delivery since these tyres came with a 5 year warranty and the warranty was valid even if you drove the car on a puncture and damaged the tyre. (My mother won't change the punctured tyre!)
