Can someone with authority or personal experience please clarify once and for all regarding the 175/70 R13s fitting safely on the stock rims of the i10 currently shod with 155/80 R13s with no modifications ?

So far there seems to be a lot of confusion around this with views seemingly divided 50-50 over the feasibility this upgrade.Would appreciate the clarification.

Hi guys i just replaced the stock rims and tyres on my i10 with
Pirelli 175/65 R14 and they are just too good. Fits in perfectly, road grip is excellent also they arent noisy. Holds the road very nicely and it has a good design as well. Braking has also improved alot. This is the first time i have tried Pirelli's although it was a bit difficult to make a choice between yokohama A drive and this one but trust me im very satisfied with them. I will put up the pics tomorrow as it was dark by the time i got them fixed so couldnt get a clear shot, couldnt wait to update this on teambhp.

The width of Hyundai stock RIMs are 4.5, whereas the recommended minimum width for the 175 tyre is 5. BUT the tyres can be easily mounted. No doubt about that.

So what happens to the extra width of the tyre ?

The tyre takes the shape of the RIM, i.e, the edge of the tyre moulds around the Rim in such a way that you do not get the benefit of the entire width.

However the advantage of sticking to a 175 in 13 inch is that it does not hurt your FE by much. On the other hand a 14 inch will have a greater impact on your FE.

If you are going to switch to a 175 / 13 AND if you do not have the budget or the willingness to spend on a set of alloys, the best option is to get a stock Hyundai Accent or Getz Rim or if you are lucky you could even get yourself a Stock alloy from an Accent. Both Accent and Getz had stock 175 tyre and hence this will fit like a glove. Also all three cars share the same PCD and No. of Holes. (100 and 4).

The answer you are looking for is: It is not recommended, though they will fit.

The i10's stock rims are 4.0B x 13 and they have a rim width of 4". While the recommended minimum width for 175/70R13 tyres is 4.5", according to tyre manufacturers. Take this chart:

http://www.michelin.in/tyre/viewall/525

You will find that the minimum recommended rim width for 155/80R13 tyres is 4" and that is what the i10 comes with as stock, and 4.5" is the minimum recommended rim width for 175/70R13s. Websites of other tyre manufacturers such as Yokohama also recommend the same.

If you don't want to go for alloys but want to upgrade to 175/70R13 tyres, it's best to get a set of steel rims meant for the Accent, either from Hyundai or from elsewhere.

Hi All,

A quick question - I own a 2010 Hyundai i10 Magna with 155/70 R 13 wheel specs. I want to upgrade my rims and add alloy rims however do not want to change the tyres and keep them stock. Is it advisable to get the aftermarket alloy rims on the stock tyres ? Are there any adverse effects ? Experts please chime in. The width of the alloy i chose is 5.5". Shall i go for this upgrade ?

The i10's stock size happens to be 155/80R13. You can indeed mount the stock tyres on to aftermarket alloys without any adverse effects, however the size you've chosen seems to be too wide. The recommended rim width range for 155/80R13 tyres is 4" to 5".

Hi all,

I own a i10 - Magna (Kappa) 2010 which I have driven about 22K on stock Bridgestone 155/80 R13 tyres.

I have been giving it for regular service and every time the service guys say there is tyre wear and some mis alignment. I have had wheel rotation done once @ 19K kms.

I have the following queries and seeking some expert advice:

1. Is it right time to upsize my tyres and add alloys? I am interested in alloys and i believe older tyres might not fetch me much in buy back.

2. Should i go with Michelin Energy XM2 or Bridgestone B250? I from previous posts have zeroed in on 175/70 R13 size for tyres with minimum impact of FE and no alteration on mud flaps.

Here. http://www.tyrestore.in/upsizing.htm, i see by changing to the new size there is very less impact.

3. On alloys, excuse me if its a lame question, would holes / PCD / Off set be taken into consideration while choosing one? If so what is the best for an i10?

Thanks in advance.

Regards,
Alpha.

hello everyone,

i went to the tyre plus in Whitefield, on Varthur road and he had the following quotes for me:

1. Michelin XM2 - 175/70R13 @ 4700/-
2. Birdgestone AR10 - 175/70R13 @ 4500/-
3. Yokahoma Adrive 175/70R13 @ 4200/-

Alloys, he only had Evo 13 inch rim - silver coated - 3700/- per piece.

Shocker was he was willing to buyback my 22K Bridgestone B250 tyres for just 300/- per piece!

Seeking some direction here.

Regards,
Alpha.

IMO you should drive some more and look to upsize at around 35-40k on your odo.

Read this to get an idea on the pcd / offset etc.

Hi RSR,

Does that mean I will have to wait till this tyre wears out and upon upgrading the tyres. My i10 has done 7400 Kms in 3 years, I donot think I will be able to get a tyre upgrade in the next 10 years at this pace as i10 is my secondary ride.

Hi Alive2Drive! One query - have you already purchased the 5.5" wide alloys?

There are people (including BHPians on this thread) who have mounted 175/70R13 tyres (that require 4.5") on 4" wide stock wheels and haven't reported any issues. So, the stock tyres would probably go on the 5.5" alloys. But this is not recommended, and I would certainly NOT advocate mounting the stock tyres on the 5.5" wide alloys, as it is outside the recommended width range.

If you've already purchased the wheels (I presume you have), then if you want to stick to manufacturer recommendations, your options are:

1) Trade in the stock tyres for wider ones. 5.5" rim width is ideal for 175/70R13s and this size is also a good upgrade size for the i10, with a small speedo/odo error and a negligible GC decrease. But since the stock tyres are 3 years old and have run 7400 km, you may not get much by way of an exchange value on them.

2) If you haven't used the alloys, then you can take them back to the store you purchased them from, explain the situation and get a different set that is 5" wide. This also depends on whether the store is willing to change them, and whether they have stock in the required width. You can safely mount the stock tyres on the new set.

You can try Option 2 first. If this is not possible in case the store is not willing give a different set, then I suggest Option 1. Ask quotes from a few different stores for a trade in and upsize. You can then choose the store which offers you the best resale value for your stock wheels & tyres, or the one which offers the best deal on your preferred brand of 175/70R13 tyres. Alternatively, if their quotes are ridiculously low, you can sell the stock wheels & tyres independently, such as through the Team-BHP classifieds or other sites. Finding a buyer who is willing to buy at the quoted price may not be easy, though.

Hi RSR,

I have not bought the Alloys yet. Post discussion with you, I differed buying the alloys. Some of my friends suggested me to go for it so thought of reposting.

Then there are no problems! You just have to buy alloys of 5" rim width (of suitable PCD, offset & centre hole diameter) if you intend to use the stock tyres on those. Once the stock ones wear out, you can go for an upsize of 175/70R13 on the alloys, if you so wish.

Cheers!

Hi alpharomeo!

The B250 stock tyres on the i10 are of the rough and tough kind. They are kind of okay as an OEM fitment, but are strictly average overall. Not great at anything, but not lousy at anything either.

I would not trust the service centre guys (of any car manufacturer) when it comes to wheel alignment, balancing and rotation. These guys may have the equipment to do the stuff, but are quite ordinary at it.

I would suggest getting the alignment done from a reputed independent tyre store, which employs technicians who are good at alignment and balancing. If I recall correctly, the i10 has only some adjustable alignment settings, while some are fixed. A good independent specialist should be able to sort out misalignment issues, if any.

As blackasta suggested, you can run the stock tyres for some more time, before upsizing. From my experience, the stock Bridgestone B250s tend to lose their properties quickly after ~ 30k km in any case, though the thread may remain.

Hi,

Attached are the photos of my car tyres.
Sorry these were taken in parking garage during evening hence uneven light and different shades.
But i have tried my best to focus on the tyre grooves only.
Kindly chip in if you think i should drive more or change tyres or get alignment redone again?

Note: 5th spare tyre is a rotated tyre (its current state similar to the well used right rear). The original spare tyre is now being run as the left rear (thus it looks pretty new).

Regards,
Alpha.
