well, that solved my queries too..so 185 60 14 it is.

Regarding FE i am not too worried as my car will run in city only, and its on CNG, just worried about the pickup, though.

Finally got my shoes replaced after exactly 40k kms. No budget for alloys for the i 10 as i'm hoping to make this my secondary car shortly.

So instead went in for the widest tyre possible for the stock rims. The choice was between Michelin Energy XM2 and Yoko A Drives. After much research I did not find much of a difference between the two, so the buying decision was purely co-incidental ; the showroom closer to my house sells Yokos not Michelins.

Got 4 Yoko A Drives 175/70/R13 at 4k each from Xenex Wheels (100 ft road, Madhapur). Paid total of Rs 16500/- incl alignment and balancing. But sadly no buyback price at all for my old set of rubbers.

What do you guys think ? Was it a fair deal ? I have driven only around 6 kms on my way back home, but already the drive seems pretty smooth compared to the Bridgestone 155/80s that came as stock with the car.

Mods : Sorry for the multiple posts, but forgot to ask something very relevant

As you guys all know, the recommended tyre pressure for an i10 as per user manual is 33 psi for stock tyres. Now that I have upsized, what should be the ideal pressure for my new 175/75/R13s. The tyre shop guy recommended 30, but I was not too convinced as he said anything between 26 and 30 is also acceptable.

To set the priorities right, being an AT model, my utmost concern is FE, a bumpy ride is still bearable. Should I go back to 33 psi then.

For my 185/60R14, I maintain 32 front 30 back - as most of the times I am the single person in the car, and with anything more than 30, the rear tends to bounce around.

Hi

Im changing the stock tyres on my i10 after 5 years/45000 km.

If I upsize to 175/70/r13 do I need to change the rim or not? The shop near my house says cant be installed on stock rim. But another in khan market says it won't be a problem. Don't know whom to trust.

Please help.

Im on a tight budget so changing rims is out of the question.

If I stick to 155/80/r13, is mrf a good choice? It's only 2800. Apollo accelere is 3500. Wrth the difference?

Upsized yokos are for 4100. Does the benefit justify the added cost?

Please advice

The stock rim size is 4" while 175/70 R13 requires a minimum width of 4.5".
If you are on a tight budget, what I suggest is hunt around car spare parts stores and also tyre stores to see if you can source other steel rims.

You can also check in showrooms.

Some cars which I can think of are: Hyundai Accent, Hyundai Getz, Ford Ikon.
I am not sure of Indica's size, if they are 4.5", you can very well take them.

I had my OEM mudflaps removed and kept aside a day after I bought my new car, once I detected the fouling.
I was running without front mudflaps for a while, and now have el cheapo non oem slim mudflaps. But the cheap mudflaps are not too durable and I have lost my front left flap already.
Yes, the spray and muck reach till my ORVMs, but I am too lazy to shop around for a nice slim+wide set of mudflaps.

Refer two posts earlier. I just upgraded to Yoko A drive 175/70/R13, fits perfectly on the stock RIMs.

Are you facing any problems?

I checked with an Hyundai A** executive. He said it can be done, but he wouldn't recommend it.

Called Michelin helpline. They said it can be done and they in fact recommend it!!!!

The more people I ask the more contradictory replies I get. So I'm dropping the upsize plan.

Please advise me if there's any particular brand I should go for for standard size tyres. MRF seems to be cheapest. Is it any good?

Thanks

I have a March 2010 i10 Magna 1.2 which has run 25600km. It has been maintained well and is always serviced at the dealer. It is sparingly used and usually taken out on weekend shopping errands or for the occasional movie. Of late, I have been feeling excessive road noise when at speeds above 60kmph. Its from the tyres. Is it because the tyres are the original ones and have hardened over the last three years? Also, the stepney hasn't ever even touched the road; its as good as it left the showroom. Should I now change all tyres?

I have a i10 Sportz of 2009 running on 185/60 R 14 Yoko A Drives from the first month of purchase. They are mounted on i20 OEM alloys which have the same PCD. They neither foul the wheel wells not touch the flaps. I have never faced the issue of slush spray on the body of the car leave alone ORVMs. The wheels do not bulge out of the body of the car either. The diameter is the same as OEM tyres so the speedo does not show error.

The trick here is the offset. The offset of i20 alloys are perfectly matched for the i10. You need to find replacement wheels (alloys preferably) of the right offset. You can buy old i20 alloy rims for about 2k each max.

Let me know if this information helps.

Wonderful info. The sad part is that I already bought the 170/70 R13 Yoko A Drive. Wonder if there is a cheaper OEM alloy option in 13 inches at around 2k.
