on Saturday I talked to at least 3-4 tyre dealers. They all told me that it will fit in no issue and they have done it to a few i10s. then i called up the sales guy in trident and he also told 175/70 R13 should fit in the existing RIM. one guy even offered me to fix it in my stepne tyre but did i did not try that.
anyway i trusted tbhp folks and decided not to do anything. thanks guys.

Put in 185/60R14 Yokohama AVS ES 100 tires on 14" Plati 10 spoke alloys.
No issue of tire touching anywhere anytime with full load (5 persons)

is there any size bigger than 185/60 r15 that can be fitted on the i10 without fouling with the wheel arches? say in 195 section example 195/60 r14, 195/55 r14 or 195/50 r14 (which i suppose has a very low profile 195*50/100).

185/55 R 15

195/60 R 14

195/55 R 14

195/50 R 15

But ideal upsize from 155/80R13 is 185/60R14, with 0.1% difference in circumference.

heloo blackasta, i can see that. but what i need to know is that whether these sizes will foul with the rear wheel arches when under full load, say 3 person at the back.

can you please upload a picture of your car shot from behind it. i wanted to see how wide the 185 section tires are on the i10. it would be of great help.

185/55 R 15 & 195/60 R 14 have bigger circumference than 155/80R13, so there is a greater chance of fouling in their case under load.

195/55 R 14 & 195/50 R 15 have a lesser chance of fouling under load as they have smaller circumference than 155/80R13.

But 195 section tires shall stick out more and may foul with the wheel well /mud flaps while turning (front tires). The 185 section ones barely scrape though.

As for the picture, I shall post it tomorrow.

Had my not-so-presentable-self-in-the-morning reflected on the back bumper, so blackened that out!

Even, I had put 185/60R14 A drive with HR alloys for my i10. They are not touching anywhere in the body, but my fifth wheel is not fitting to the boot. there is a screw which would tighten the wheel in the boot and it's becoming shorter for this wheel. So, i just had to leave it without tightening with some padding all around.

thank you blackasta, i find these 185/60 r14 tires wide enough. but i think these performance tires look wider because of their stiff sidewall. i find yokohama a.drive to be narrower.

Any particular reason you choose 6j instead of the 5.5j most people have chosen for their i10(atleast as far as I've seen).

I'll be going for 185/60 R14 xm1+ in most probability.Its the width 5.5j or 6j I haven't yet decided on.
