Default Hyundai Getz GVS tyre upgrade

I have a Hyundai Getz GVS 2005 model which has a 155/80 R13 size tyre. I was wondering if I could replace it with a 175/70 R13 size tyre. If this is not possible what would be a good upgrade ? Also, I would like to get a rough estimate of how much a set of 4 tyres cost ? Thank you.

Yes, u can go ahead with 175/70 R13.
If u want to move to 14", u can get a 175/65 R14 set.

I recently bought a set of 175/70 R13 Bridgestone S322 for 10K.Includes alignment and balancing.

Default Hyundai Getz GVS tyre upgrade

I have a Getz GLS and upgraded from 175/70 R13 to 185/60R14.
you should try and keep the overall circumference of the tyre the same after the change.
The usual thumb rule is for every 10mm increase in width u reduce 10% of the profile.

Read this article to get an idea of what u can try...
