so far i dont have any problems with it. the only technical flaw that i have experienced was the fc. but its not that significant since it only increased 1L or .5L from its 10-14km/L. i was actually thinking about getting 185/50/r15 but its going to be bumpy so i settled with the 55series.

can you try out the same specs as mine? i would want a second opinion please

guys ... i want to upgrade my i10 wheels to Bridgestone Turanza ER-60
Size : 195/70R1491H

If this is compatible I could get an extra clearance of 1"

I am desperate for increasing ground clearance after damaging the radiator grill, its support frame and the bumper when I ran into a huge invisible speed breaker in the night @ 120

Is it advisable to go for this upgrade ??

thanks !

No amount of GC will help you if you do 120 on a fairly decent speed breaker.

So has anyone got to know whether a 175/65R14 size is acceptable or an i10.Will it foul with the fenders or the wheel arches at the front/back??

I have upgraded to League 13'' alloys with Michelin XM1+ 175/70/r13 tires on my i10 and the handling/cornering/braking has improved a great deal.
I think anything above this will not be good for a small car like i10. This is my personal opinion.

The ride is a bit bumpy as am using 32 all around. Am planning to reduce and see if it improves the ride.

NFS - 30 should make a definite improvement.

Hey Guys,
Any final decision on the tyre size for the i10? I would to have bigger and broader tyres for my new i10.

I booked it on the 16th Feb and the dealer says I wont get it until 14th March. I am not sure if there is such a massive waiting for i10 in Mumbai.. Any one has and info on this?

My wife chose the Kappa Blushing Red and the dealer says this colour for 2009 model is a problem..

Try 175/70 or 185 tyres. I think anything above this would be an overkill for the i10. 13" Rims is best suited, no need for 14" or 15" rims if you are planning to go for an alloy.

Which color have you opted for and which model? Hyundai India's yard is filled with cars and there is not much space for new cars. At the same time the maximum no: of cars in that is the i10. So i don't think the there will be such a big waiting preiod.

Maybe the model you are looking for is not available with the dealer. Before you take delivery make sure its a 2009 model.

Nice. I see you have stuck matt black masking tape on the door edges near the windows. Looks neat. Where did you get it from? Cost?
What about the wheel flares? Can you give more details on all the mods you have done on your car. I have just booked a black i10asta AT for my dad

Default Alloys for i10

Folks,

I searched the forum for the PCD of i10. However, could not find it. Anyone has the details?

Can someone tell me how wide has anyone gone on i10? 185, 195 or more?

185/60 R14 seems to be the exact match. So is 195/55 R15 (pretty close). Would it hit the wheel well?

195/50/R15 is the right upgrade in 15",though it will affect the ride,i suggest you stick with 14"s,if the ride is not a big concern for you, go for the above specs as it changes the look of the car altogether!

I'm going by the tire size calculator, and getting 15"ers, 185/55 (1.1% error against 3% error for 195s) . The only concern is the availability of the size (195/55 or 195/50 is common in 15"), which is restricing my choice in Brands (Yokohama getting ruled out, leaving Michelin and Bridgestone to battle it out).
50 profile in 195 on bad roads and high'ish speeds might be trouble, methinks.
