What tyres - stock ?

185/60/14 is a very good handler but a bit rough on ride (one hell of a looker)
It's a YokoHama A538. each tyre costed about Rs 3200.

Is yours an AT? Is the ICE setup completed , would like to have an audition sometime.

195/55/15 has a 2.9% variance compared to stock. 195/50/15 has a variance of -0.38%.

Anyway just thinking!

Actually you can, provided you have real good roads.

I have come across few pics in internet with 16 inchers on i10 (ofcourse, in UK and some European countries)

Try i20 Alloys with Yokohama A Drives 185/60 R14. It's an amazing match. Great fit - does not protrude out of the body. The tyres give a much better grip.

I have this combination on i10 AT Sportz for over a year and am very satisfied.

I'm planning to upgrade my i10 1.1 Magna tyres to Bridgestone Potenza GIII.
I have stock tyres 155/80 R13. I wish to upgrade to 185/60R13 80H but not sure if the i10 will be able to handle it.. The other option that I have is 175/60R13 77H.

Can someone please guide me asap as I plan to upgrade tomorrow....

Both sizes you have quoted is not Right. 185/60 R14 or 175/70 R13 are the right upsizes.

175/60 R13 is the corrct upsize for santro. Not i10.
I'm running 175/70 R13. No problems at all. Ride is good and the handling has improved a bit. Also, the car's stance has improved once i got rid of the puny cycle tyres that came with it.

what about 185/60R13??
thats my 1st preference.. however 175/70 or 175/60, its just a change in the height of sidewall.. Will it impact so much??

It would impact the ride. I did try 185/60 before finalising 175/70 but it just looked tooo meaty for the car and the alloy. Plus i guess the ride would also be a little less comfy with the 185s but my knowledge is limited so i guess you should ask one of the tire gurus.
