The tub in the boot should have some extra space for larger tires.

UK model i-10 comes with optional 15" wheels.

Thanks Blackasta.

Have the stock mud flaps torn now in 10 days, and am wondering if it's to do with the tire upsize. What should i do (change the mud flaps to a thinner one, any suggestions here? and/or change some driving style ?).

Cheers

The front mudflaps do come in contact with the tires during lock-to-lock steering maneuvers. Thats why I removed the front mudflaps after I upsized.
I only got 4 alloys + tires, and kept the stock spare tire.

185/60R14 is infact what the so called customized Hyundai i10 is wearing at Advaith Hyundai showroom in Bangalore! So its indeed good upsize to have.

If the variance of overall diameter with 185/60/14 and the 13 inch standard setup is around 0.1% (from what I have read on this thread). Does keeping the stock tyre as a spare suffice. It will be used in emergency situations only until the next tyre shop.

Or does one have to get a set of 5 alloys (sounds excessive)?

I once had a flat tire (rear) and used the stock spare (albeit for very less time). Did not notice any difference.

I am planning to upgrade stock 155/80R13 to 185/60R14 (either Michelin XM1+ or Yoko) with 14" alloy. Please advice on the impact on FE.

It seems Hyundai also provides 13" alloys for i10 (http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/test-d...-update-3.html (My Hyundai i10 Kappa Sportz Oyster Grey EDIT : 1 year 9,000 km update)) and the Team-BHP official i10 test drive report sugessts upgrade to 175/70R13. What may be the +ve/-ve of upgrading to this option instead?

Upgraded to Yoko A100 185/60R14 with 14" alloy. The tire guy recommended 175/70R13 and not to go for R14. I tried both R13 and R14 at the shop. R14 did not touch the mudflap when stationary even at the full turn. But while driving, it is indeed coming in contact while turning wide. I guess I have to remove the front mudflaps like blackasta did.

Default New i10 - HRS alloys and 3M CR70?

Hi All,

My first post for my first car Thanks T-BHP for approval.

I have booked my i10 sportz last weekend.

some quick questions:

1. Dealer says they deal only with HRS alloys - claims this is the only brand hyundai now supports: Price : 19500 (13"). Is it worth it? Also is it true alloys improve mileage due to lighter weight.

2. I browsed 3M website and decided to put 3M CR70 on all 6 sides of the car. Price: 14500
The dealer had a booklet from 3M with a sample for all films. The booklet had all samples of 3M except for CR70. He claimed that a customer took it with him by mistake. My friend on the other hand tells me 3M has discontinued the CR70 (his friend used to work for 3M). He warns me that the dealer might put a cheaper film and claim its CR70.

Q: Is the price good; is the product worth the price.

Q: Any idea on the status of CR70 - if it really is discontinued and the dealer happens to have some old stock (assuming he does not cheat) is it ok to go ahead with it? (if i still go ahead with CR70 i thought I will tell the dealer he needs to install it in front of me to prevent him from cheating)

Q: Any other good suggestions for sun film for the 6 sides. My budget for it is 15000 (from chennai - really hot, hoping the sun film can make a difference )

Thanks

The dealer is taking you for a ride unless its for 5 alloys!

About sunfilm, check this http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/modifi...-sun-film.html (Sun Film)

Hyundai Dealers here sell plati, neo and league alloys too, and yes, at 20k.
Irrespective of the brand of/place where you get the alloys fitted, as long as they are 13 inchers, the "warranty" of the car's suspension will not be void, AFAIK, and as per research on this forum. Also I believe 13" wheels can be had for Rs 3000-3500 onwards before exchange, per piece.

Though alloys can improve FE, the difference is marginal.

Please get the alloys fitted outside. 19k for 13" rims is a total ripoff. Outside you can get 13" rims for about 12-13k, with a much wider selection of designs.

As for the sunfilm, why should you get CR70 all around? Its overkill. Get CR70 only for the windscreen where it is required to get 70% film. Also I doubt CR70 is discontinued since it is relatively new and their flagship product. You should check out CS35 or RE35 for the sides, both will offer better heat rejection than 3M.

Another option since your budget allows is to go for Vkool. Have a look at some Vkool dealers in your area.

In Bangalore I got RE35 for my i10 windows and back for 3700. RE35 is reflective series of film from 3M. Check with delaer and ask for a car which has RE35 applied so that you could see yourself. It has excellant heat rejection.

I would also suggest going for Garware Ice Cool.

CR-70 only on the windscreen please.

Alloys wheels are well known brands like Plati, HR etc for a 13" is usually Rs.3200 apiece maximum. Do not pay anything more than this price

With regards to 3M RE-35. D segment cars with larger window area is being done at Rs.4500 for 4 windows and rear windsheild. Hence, for an i10 it should be even more lower. Try to negotiate further.
