Got new shoes for my i10 @ Tyrestore run by Deepak (@tyrestore). I did due diligence by inquiring rates at BM lal's, XLTyrepoint, SinghviTyres etc. Deepak gave the best deal for Michelin XM2 and when I told him I am a BHPian he agreed to do Wheel Balancing and Alignment for free. This alone costs Rs.500/ at other places. Out of curiosity I took a look at the Wheel Balancing and Alignment process. The mechanic was kind enough to explain what he was doing by adding weight 15gm-25 gm etc.

Deepak's dad advised to do next wheel alignment after 5000kms. He advised that I should do this with full tank fuel as it helps balance the weight of the engine upfront. He also confirmed that tyres at the front wear faster than those at the rear.

Overall a very nice experience, quick service, good advice and last but not the least great price! Would definitely recommend Tyrestore for tyres at Chennai

Moderators, please do the needful if I am posting on the wrong forum.

Hi Guys,

After 2.5 years i am planning to get new set of allows for my ride. Functionally, there is nothing wrong with the present set of wheels but the chrome for sure has lost its bling and i found it extremely difficult to maintian (i admit i couldn't maintain the bling for long).

I am getting a quote of about 10k for a set of 4 plati's from Zan Auto Sound in Marathalli (with buy back for old ones). Is it a good deal ? Also can any one suggest a Model/Brand which has 14" Matt Black alloys ?

Hi Guys

We recently got a used i10 sportz auto. The car had only done 24k in over 3 years but the tyres quite worn out. After going through this thread, i decided to do a alloys+tire change together.

The i10 isnt very economical on the 155s itself. And we used this only in the city. We also have the all new fiesta that we would use on longer runs. So an upsize wasnt high on the priority list.

I got this done at Mahendra tyres near Besant nagar.

Onyx alloys 12k
Michelin XM2 155s 3250 X 4
balancing 800
New valves 600
Drum n calipers paint job 500
Alignment free

Less for old wheels -1000

Some photos of the wheels..

Nice set of wheels clementj. Take good care of the chrome and avoid using water that has high particulate matter because in no time there will be deposits all over.

Hello everyone,
Have booked a i10 Kappa2 Sportz and expecting delivery next week.

I was looking for a upsize for the car and thanks to this thread have decided on 185/60 R14. However, I am confused between Yokohama A-Drives, ES100 and Michelin XM1/XM2. If someone can help decide, it would be great! I am also open to any other suggestions. Main requirements are good grip and ride comfort along with low noise.

Also, which are the good alloy wheel manufacturers that you would recommend? Not looking for too expensive alloys but reasonably priced ones.

Help would be appreciated! Thanks in advance!

I am using 175/70 R13 XM2. Amazing road grip, especially on the highways. 185/60 can be very bad in the rough patches.

Using 185/60R14 ES100s for 3.5 years - excellent grip, so-so in road noise, and bad for broken roads. The closed tread of ES100 makes it a gravel magnet. The stance of i10 completely changes once you upsize to 185/60R14 - but you might have to take out the front mudflaps (especially if they are the costlier thicker OEM hyundai ones ) and replace them with thinner low quality mudflaps - otherwise the tires foul with the flaps on full lock.

For good alloy wheels in budget - look for Neo, Plati, HRS etc.
Check out this site: http://www.alloywheelsindia.com/index.php

For more expensive options, you can check out wheels from BBS, 5zigen, Konig etc.

Thanks for the reply blackasta!
I just visited the dealer from whom the car is being bought. Talked to the SA about upsizing the tires as I want to get it done before/just after delivery so that full resale value of new tires can be taken. However, the SA keeps saying that it will make the steering heavier very much and it will make it difficult to park, and so on. So, I was wondering whether the steering actually becomes much heavier or not. We have a Getz 1.3 that is running on 185/60 R14 tires and the steering is not really that heavy. Does the i10's steering become significantly heavier? Also, I feel that it is kind of the point of a upsize, to make the steering a bit heavier to give the car confidence on the road.

That's exactly what you would want ! i10's steering becomes nice n comfortable to inspire confidence on the open roads after upsizing. I park my car at home in the tightest of spots, and have never faced any difficulties due to the steering wheel feeling 'heavy'!

Hey everyone, I was wondering whether Rs. 16000 is a good price for 13" HRS Alloys? The model no. is H220. Please reply ASAP, looking to get them by Tuesday just after delivery of the car.

The alloys cost is 15800 and the tires cost 6000 including buyback. Don't remember the exact buyback breakup, but will let you know once I get the tires.

Hi guys. I was thinking I want to slightly upsize tyres. My original plan was 165/75 R13's for the i10 but this size is not available anywhere. So I have come up with two options for a slightly low budget -

1) 155/80-13 - Michelin XM2
2) 175/70-13 - Apollo Accelare

What would you suggest? Upsize and use Accelares or stock size with Michelins. What makes sense. Because upsize with Michelin is very expensive.

Suggest you go for 175/70R13. The i10 is severely under-tyred, so an upsize is called for.
Apollo Accelere is a decent tyre, and definitely better than most tyres that are factory fitted. Unless you are particularly picky, they will make you happy.
