No particular reason whatsoever.
The approved rim width for Yokohama AVS ES 100 185/60R14 are 5.0 - 6.5J (http://www.yokohamatire.com/pdf/avses100.pdf), and when the dealer suggested these rims in 6J, I did not find any reason to object.
They are also not fouling with the wheelwell / brakes, so guess we are good with that size on an i10.

What would be the decrease in fuel efficiency if i10 AT is upgraded to

1) 175/70R13

2) 185/60 R14

I guess, even with Stock tyres the i10 AT gives only 10kmpl.

If upraded with good set of Alloys with 175/70 R13 i dont think there ll be any difference in FE (as light weight of alloys offset the tyre weight to a certain extent)

However if you go in for 185/60/R14, it may reduce by 1-2 km (imay be wrong)

i get 12-12.5KM in City with A/C and 14-14.5 with AC in highway (mine is a i10 1.2Kappa shod with 185/60/R14)

wow thats some pretty decent mileage! I manage around 11-11.5 in city-highway combined. What fuel do you use? I use HP regular petrol from a dependable station.

@blackasta

I reckon you use i10 AT. Have you upsized your tyres as well or on stock.

I upgraded to 185/60R14 Yokohama AVS ES100 on 14" Plati rims the day I drove my car out of showroom.

Me too upgraded to the Yokohoma A Drives.
185/60 R14
He gave me 10k for my 5 stock tires+ Steel Rims
31k For 5 Yokos + 5 Plati Rims(Set of 4 costs Rs12k,do the Math :P )
Rs500 for Tire Fitting and Adjustments
I ended up paying 31.5-10=Rs21.5k
I had a feeling I could have gotten in down to Rs20k or better,anybody about to get tires from Bombay Tires try getting it down to Rs20k at least!
I chose the Yokos over the Michelins because I managed to get 5 for them within my budget instead of the 4 Michelins.I had to because Dad was very insistent on getting the Stepney now itself.

He suggested 6j rims so I went with it.Having confirmed after reading several threads I still inquired whether there be any issues of touching and all and he mentioned there won't be any and in fact only recently he fitted,on a customers insistence,15" tires for the i10 and still there weren't any issues of touching.

Default To upgrade or not

Hi Folks
Been reading up on tyre upgrades and honestly - am confused. Seen so many views on different posts so need to post again and ask
1. I have a new i-10 Magna with MRF stock tyres.
2. I will be using it within city for 80-90% of the time and am not really a enthusiastic driver, tho occasionally like to zip away( rarely)
My questions ( and i am sure not to change the rims now)
1. Is an upgrade really essential( read some folks post no, some said yes..confused!)
2. If so- whats the suggested upgrade with no rim changes and no risks( read that 175/70 R13 is good but no recommended with the same rims as its risky). I asked a tyre dealer that its risky not to change rims with upgrade and he laughed and said- why would manufacturers make wider tyres for 13" when they feel its a risk to mount them on 13"!!
3.What would be the advantage, if any?
4. How will it affect the FE( less or more)
I would request the experienced folks to share some exp and thots pls.
My mind is little jumbled, if nothing i would probably run them for a year and then for for alloys and wider tyres..

if you would like to feel confident on those occasional zip aways, then yes.
2. If so- whats the suggested upgrade with no rim changes and no risks( read that 175/70 R13 is good but no recommended with the same rims as its risky). I asked a tyre dealer that its risky not to change rims with upgrade and he laughed and said- why would manufacturers make wider tyres for 13" when they feel its a risk to mount them on 13"!!
There is no one size tire width for 13" tires. Come on, 13" is the tire size, not the tire width! If you decide to upgrade, you must get matching width rims for your tires.
3.What would be the advantage, if any?
Improved handling, better high speed stability
4. How will it affect the FE( less or more)
If the rolling radius is same, ideally FE should not be impacted.
I would request the experienced folks to share some exp and thots pls.

Tire gurus should be able to deliver lot more info and suggestions for you.

Thanks- the 13" was rim size so wanted to check if need to change rims. I am not interested in changing rims but read that putting 175 on the standard 13" rims is risky so not sure...

The i10 stock rims are 4J, and in all probabilities 175/70R13 is safely mounted on a minimum rim width of 5J. Tire gurus please correct me if I am wrong.

I Upgraded my i10 AT wheels to 175*60*r14 with HR alloys. Pics to follow soon. Ride is a bit sitiffy though and the tyre dealer suggested not to go for 176*65*r14 as it hits the bumper fully loaded over speed breakers

175/60/14 is the official UK export specs for i10
What tyres - stock ?

185/60/14 is a very good handler but a bit rough on ride (one hell of a looker)
