Hi,
Itís the tire rubbing the plastic portion of the wheel arch.
And it might not be the back tire thatís rubbing, It could be the front. I suppose when you run over a hump and the back tire climbs down the hump you hear this noise.

To check this, turn your steering to the complete left and check your front right tire. You will find a black plastic piece in the wheel arch. Check the inner edge of this and you will see scrape marks here.

I had the same issue when I changed to Bridgestone Potenza 185/60/R13. Now I have changed it to Michelin XM1+ 175/70/R13 and it never scrapes.
Try talking to the dealer and see if you can work out a replacement. It will be a good idea because after some time you will see the tire edges chipping out.

As per my views.

Potenza:
1. Good braking.
2. Lots of road noise after 90kms/hr.
3. Stones donít stick in the groves, but somehow it attracts nails.
4. Steering got really harder.
5. I felt the ride was smoother even over potholes. (made me a bit careless about potholes while driving)
6. Good wet road handling.

Michelin:
1. Braking is not bad at all, but I felt Potenza had a upper hand here.
2. No road noise at all.
3. Stones get caught in the groves, but havenít caught any nails.
4. Steering is much lighter now.
5. Ride is smooth but Potenza rode over potholes much smoother. (at least my shocks will last a bit longer)
6. Good wet road handling. Didnít feel any difference here.

The only thing I miss from Potenza is its braking. But with Michelin I am having a tension free ride. Donít have to worry about road humps.

Regards,
Alex

The overall diameter is increasing with 175/65 14 when compared to 155/80 13. This could be one reason for the scrape.

The option for you now is to change to 175/60 14 (or) go back to 13" and get 175/70 13.

My suggestion retain the 14" alloys (i hope the offset is correct) and go for 185/60/14 tyres. This tyre's diameter will be closer to your stock 155/80/13 than your present 175/65/14. See the attached image.

@ Sankar

I will have just one chance to get them replaced again.
please confirm
XM1+ 175/70 13 with some alloys
OR
XM1+ 185/60/14 with i20 alloys

I am using 185/60R14 yokohama ES100 with 14"x 6J aftermarket alloys. No problems whatsoever. You can safely go for 185/60R14.

You can go for 185/60 14 tyres on the i20 alloys. PM BHPians 'blackasta' or 'Mi10'. They both run 185/60 14 and will be able to share their experiences.

After you install the tyres, check if they scrap anywhere on lock-to-lock, steering turned fully on both sides. Very very few cases have had this problem. It could have been due to the fact the wheel offset was too +ve.

Well i went to the dealer again today and showed him that 175 is scraping and 185 will be ideal.He tried proofing that there is very less difference between 185/60/14 and 175/65/R14.
Ruled out 13 inches since he is not ready to replace the i20 alloys.
moreover he is depreciating 250/- from each tyre for 3 days run.and 185 is coming for 4500 and 175 was for 3750.So in short if i take a risk and get the 185btyres i will have to pay 4500 more anyhow.
Its a total mess.
please suggest what to do?

Shobhit,

Could u please give us more details.

How many tires are touching ?
Which side tire is touching ? rear/ front/ ?
Is it touching with load or without load ?
Is the rubber getting chipped off or just getting rubbed ?

Pics if possible.

Cheers

@kpzen
Let me tell u the exact problem.As mentioned early in the thread 175/65/R14 is a perfect size for i10 and many people are running on them. I have even seen a thread long back where someone got the i20 alloys on i10.
Now let me tell u the problem.it wont touch if u drive slow and calmly.it only happens if there is a sudden bump or up and down road at high speed. It always happen at high speed so i am not sure which tire is touching.I have tried it with load and no load it went exactly the same.It probably appears that the back tires are culprit but i m not sure.I cant see any rubbing on tires from outside.I tire dealer is from Lajpat Nagar. So finally talking everyone advice and getting them replaced with 185/60/14 on i20 alloys (5.5J) XM1+.
I am going to pay 1000 more for each tyre. I hope it works this time.

Can you please let us know what brand of tyres are those (185/60) ?
Price of 4500 per tyre seems on the higher side.

As far as the scrapping of the tires, i think its 100% safe to go with 185/60 on 14" rims. I've been running this set up for almost 8 months now (~7k on Odo) and no problems really (ya even when taking on bumps in relatively higher speed)

However, the ride quality might take a beating when traveling on bad roads

@MI10
Considering the advice of Blackasta,MI10 and Para.
i20 alloys (5.5J)
Jumping to 185/60/14 Michelin XM1+
quoted the rate of 4500/- for each tire.
Is it too high.Please confirm
