I would say only 5j ....below that u wont get the best out of your tyres...and above that there are chances of tyres scraping with the body

Stick with 155/70/R13. It would be perfect

Will I get g3's? Or which company do you recommend??

what size rims did u buy ????...i think 165/60r13 should work on the alto ...i have seen many alto's with these tires ..but dont know if they touch or scrape ..
if u havent used the rims ...then u should try and get a 5j rim ...aura will have 5j rims with teh same PCD as the alto OE rims

Question 185/60R13 on 6J alloys on an Alto LX...

I've fitted my alloys (6J) & tyres (Goodyear Vectra : 185/60R13) from my old Esteem to my wife's Alto about 2 weeks ago, & here are the pluses & minuses I've problems faced:


Pluses:

1. Great roadholding.

2. Great looks.

3. Great ride with bumps absorbed really well.


Minuses:

1. On really bad craters & speed berms hit above 40kmh, there's a sound like the damn suspension's gonna tear off - a hard mechanical "chunnnnk" that wasn't there earlier. Below this speed, there's no sound whatsoever in any bump.

2. There's a slight scraping sound sometimes (I haven't heard it, but my wife allegedly has), coming from the front right side.

The car's relatively new (2.5 years old, 19k kms) & has never made any suspension noises before, so I guess it has to be the alloys / tires.

Can anybody help? What should I do - (she doesn't want to raise the car) & I'd prefer not to change the tyres, although I would if I had to...

Thanks,
