OT: Spotted you Figo last(?) month on Old Airport Road.
1. The Europe spec i10 comes with 175 section tyres as standard. So I don't think there is any chance of a 185 section tyre scraping suspension/bodywork as long as your selection of wheel/alloy is correct - check the Car & Tyre bible link in Rehaan's post here http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/tyre-a...-your-car.html (READ FIRST: Choosing The Right Set Of Tyres for your Car). Ensure that the ET value of new wheel is within 5mm of stock.

2. Rolling Radius of stock tyre = 289.1mm, rolling radius of 185/60R14 upsize = 288.8mm. The difference is less than 1mm, so again, absolutely no chance of upsized tyre scraping anywhere.

I have been using 185/60 R14 in i10 kappa for over 2 years now. There has been not a single incident of scraping the sidewall.

However, while buying the wheels, I tried many options and realized that it is the offset which you have to be careful about. If the offset is not right, either you will have tyre scraping the wall or on the other hand protruding too much out of the body of the car.

I finally settled for i20 Alloys which are a perfect fit (same PCD) and also look very good. Not sure of the cost though now as I traded my original wheels to these rims then.

I have Yoko A drives 185/60 R14 which are quite comfortable on this car.

Go for 185/60R14 XM1+ for a more planted ride & better handling.

Front tires on my i10 do touch the mudflaps during extreme turning but it's not much of a bother. I believe blackasta had the same problem and he removed his front mudflaps.

Default Hyundai i10 - upsize and alloys

Hi,

I am planning to upgrade the tyres on my i10. I have checked the UK Hyundai site and it mentions the i10 is shod on a 165/60 R14(MT) and 175/60 R14(AT) versions Hyundai | New Cars | I10 | Technical. However the Indian version of i10 is shod on a 155/80 R13. Can you please let me know if I can upgrade it to 165/60 R14 without impacting the car performance.

165/60-14 is non-existent. There is no tyre available in that size in India. Your best bet in 14" is 175/60-14 but that will affect your ride comfort.

There is a dedicated i10 tyre thread. Search for it and post there.

Default Re: Need feedback on i10 tyre upgrade options

We upgraded to 175/70/R13 Michelin XM1+ on my wife's Magna Kappa 2. After the research I did, i found it to be the bst bet in tems of looks and ride comfort. I did not want to move to 14", since it would have affected the warranty of the suspension.

One thing that I had found during my research was, the stock rims are not recommended to use the upsized tyres, so it is highly recommended to change to alloys.

I traded in my tyres on day 1 and also got alloys.. total damage was arund 12k after the buy back which i think was a very good trade off.

Edit: Some people are using 175/70/R13 on stock rims. So i think stock rims should also be fine.

I would advice you to go for 175/70 - R13. Apart from the benefits of increased grip, and slightly improved ride, it enhances the looks too..

Bridgstone Turanza ER60's are a great set.

Check here, for more knowledgeable responses. http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/tyre-a...ze-alloys.html

Recommended upgrade is 175/70R13 if you want to retain the stock wheels. Otherwise, 185/60R14 can be used if you want to upgrade to 14" alloy.

The point is not whether a 175 tyre can be mounted on stock rim which is 4b but whether it is technically within the safe limit ? It is very clear that the recommended size for a 4j rim is 155 , which is what i10 comes with .The maximum limit is 165mm. It is out side the safety limit to mount a 175mm tyre on a 4j rim , but heck this is India, here as long as it is possible to mount a tyre on a rim , the dealer will say chalta hain. Now another important factor is that , you will not be able to make full use of the footprint of the tyre when you mount a 175mm on 4j rim because of the resulting excessively rounder profile of the tyre , which also leads to uneven wear .There might be a chance of tyre coming off, under heavy cornering loads . I am certain a guy who is running 175 wide tyres on 4b rims is definitely not getting the maximum grip and perfromance of the said tyres .I feel its better to upgrade to alloys if you are planning to upgrade tyres otherwise its a wasteful exercise. The only advantage of a 175 tyre on a 4j rim is placebo and nothing more..
