Hi All,
Do you feel that the steering is tight/hard after upgrading your wheels and tyres? I'm planning to go for 175/70/R13 with some alloy wheel. My wife likes the current light steering in i10. If it is going to affect very badly after 175 tyre then I don't get approval from her. Please let me know your experience.
TIA

Yes, I did feel a tightness in steering after the tyre change to 175/70.

On the contrary, I liked the tightness it offered especially during lane changes in the highway.

It is not significant but defenitely noticeable.

Alternatively, you can change to 14" and get 165/65 14. But the sidewall height reduces by nearly 15mm and ride will be back bending.

well, i would suggest 185/60 R14 which is a perfect upsize for the stock 155/80 R13. I have been having them on my i10 for the past 4-5 months and the handling/cornering has been much better than the stocks.

This is the main reason I want to upsize the stock tyres but I'm concerned about the steering. How is your experience with 185/ 60 R14. Is the steering harder by about 25% after upsize? If it is that much then it okay anything above 50% is no-no.

I know percent is not the best way to measure the steering comfort but I'm looking for the difference before and after because my wife is very particular on that.

I feel 185/60-14 is an overkill for i10.
A friend of mine, got the same wheels and now he's struggling to get anything more than 10kmpl..
Anyone else having the same issue ?
Shobit or MutantX - pls share your experience.

check with 'Tejas@perioimpl'. His i10 has been sporting this tyre upgrade for more than a year. Tejas was very vocal during initial months of purchase due to low mileage, though his i10 (used mainly by his father) has/had low daily usage.

Well, to be frank with you i10's 1.2 kappa's mileage hasnt been great before & after the upgrade. My car has run just 1300 kms hence cant comment on the mileage. I am getting 10kmpl as of now in city B2B traffic conditions. The driveability has improved a lot and so is the road grip. Get either michelin or yoko a-drive as there is surely a reduction in road noise when compared to the stocks.

@automaticfan: 185 60 R14 profile tyres are a good upgrade. I have been many i10s upgraded to these profile tyres. The steering isnt tight *atleast for me*.

I guess tbhp tyre gurus would be able to answer your question much better.

Thank you all for your inputs. Yes, I'm planning on Micelin XM1+ for the tyres. Will there be significant drop in the milegae if I go with 175/ 70 R13.

Curently, my i10 Auto is giving about 8-9 kmpl depending the AC usage. The shop owners claim that there won't be any drop in the FE if I go with R13 alloys.

i10 kappa asta AT - running on 185/60R14 (yoko ES 100) from day 1 (since september 2009)
Clocked around 13K - no issues with steering/handling, or tires touching wheel well whatsoever (light/tight)
mileage - around 12-13 kmpl

Hope the above stat clarifies some issues/queries!

BlackAsta,

Can you please let me know the braking experience in your car. I heard from some of the articles in this forum that up-sizing will impact the braking efficiency especially in rainy season.

Since you have changed your footwear from the day1. Might be you have not experienced the difference b/w stock shoes handling and braking part. Isn't it correct me if I am wrong.

Regards,
Camon

I never faced any problem with braking - be it rainy, dry or winter.
Don't think there would be any braking problems involved if the upsized tires are of good quality.

I had 185/60/14 for about an year and i was getting consistently around 11.5 to 12 kmpl.

Its not about the size, but the engine itself seems to be running optimum only if you shift at ~ 2.5K

I ve experimented at almost all rpm's right from 1.5K till 3.5K

THe best figures recorded were from the times when i shifted just in between 2-3K rpm

The braking will be the most improve aspect after you upsize your rubber to better quality ones.

Get the ones that Black Asta or Mutant X is having.

I was running ES 100, thought they were great in rains, they add more noise to an already noisy car (read as tire/road noise)
