@ kpzen:
As far as I know, i10 rim specs are 13x4B.
Has hyundai changed it recently or for i10 Kappa?

@ nareshtrao:
It's better to avoid 15" wheels on i10.

Default Wheel upsize calculator

Folks,

Thanks indeed for all your reponses.

185/60 R14 is the best match. The difference is only -0.1%.

Current Circumfrence - 1816.47
New Circumfrence - 1814.58

i10 original wheels are 4.5J and 100 PCD. With 185/60 R14, the wheels required are either 5.5JJ or 6J.

both i10 1.1 and 1.2 have same wheels.

Here is a link to the calculator for those who do not already have it.

185/60r14 does seem to be the right upsize on paper but how applicable is it actually on the car?
Realistically speaking its more on a car to car basis. I have had couple of complaints in the past about 185's on 6 j rims scraping on the sides of the body but we have also fit 195/50r15 on 6.5 j rims without any problems of any sort.

I would say you opt for a 5.5j wheel with a 185 to be really safe but the problem is you will have very limited option of wheels, all the imported ones are mostly default 6 j
Aura should be available in 5.5 j.

IMO, 175/65/R14 is the best size for the i10.
Optimum bling. Optimum Ride quality. Optimum FE.

Default Offset of i10 Wheels

Folks,

I have a query. I am unable to find the offset of i10 wheels anywhere in print. What is the offset that we get on 155/80 4J wheels and what should be the offset for 14" upgrade?

The sample I tried was sticking out over "1 and half inches" out of the car body with Yoko A drives. It looked so bad that I asked the guy to remove and fit original wheels back.

Which are best 14" wheels for i10 that can take 185/60 R 14? What should be the offset?

Any advise would be appreciated. Thanks.

I second this query. I don't want 195s that stick out like it is 1999.

hey team,
I'm absolutely disatisfied with the stock rubber on my i10 and even though I've run 9K, still want to just get rid of it. I've around 17K budget(CANNOT GO ABOVE THAT, I"M MERELY A STUDENT). Please suggest me the
Tyre + Alloy combo I can get in this budget. (READ: TOTAL BUDGET= 17K)
Will I be able to get 175/65 R14's in this budget? Won't go for cheap alloys just because they are cheap. I'm a sucker for warranty and quality.








cheers

Sailing the same conundrum boat, aren't we? 17k may afford you either a good set of shoes or decent alloys.
eg HR's 14" Hyper Silver stands at around 14.5k for a set of four. Shoes will be around 3k a piece.

My bet is placed around a stock getz rim+ decent tires mix, which should come around the desired price point. The other option is to wait and wear the current set out, and go all-out on 15" 195s.

Oh darn! I did 9K in a YEAR! Even if I wait for another 2 years,the rubber would still have something! I hate this wait game. C'mon HR, don't you need to clear some of last year's stock. Some team-bhp discount, something!!

Hello everyone. It will be a few weeks until I get an i10 AT. Have read probably every forum and page that is on Team BHP regarding the same and have learnt a lot.

The wheel specs I have gathered are: 4D X 13” ET 34


To start with, are the above wheel specs correct?
Can I use 14” Steel Rims of other cars with width greater than 5.5”?
Is the PCD and offset of the Getz steel rim the same as the i10?
Bigger steel rims will be heavier. Will this effect car performance; pickup, fuel efficiency?
I spoke to Saifee tyres. They say best upgrade on stock rims is 175/70/R13. While I am ok with that as circumference difference is -0.52%, my main concern is that all tyre manufacturers recommend rim width grater than 5.5 for this size as well. Saifee says this will not foul tyres but I am sceptical.

Request your inputs & experiences
I asked the Hyundai dealer on the cost of the i20 alloys. He told me 12,000 per piece! I found that difficult to digest. I will be unable to afford alloys at this time.
I have my first post very long I know, but it’s all due to the education I received from you posts. Would appreciate any help.

Dear all. Had a concern: Should I ever face a problem, would any of my warranties (mostly on the suspension) be void because of my change to alloys and upgraded tires? Need your advice please as after I have read the problems on the Skoda forums, I am rethinking my decision to change the footwear.

Yes. Your warranty on suspension would be void "technically'. However, if you develop a decent relationship with the the Service Center personnel, they may not raise an issue. But it again depends on what kind of damage you have (if any) due to modifications.

Default Alloys offered by Hyundai

Went to Motor Plaza, Parel. They have 3 types of 13" alloys. Wanted to share details about them:
All alloys sourced from Aura.
Available in 13" X 5J
PCD: 100
ET: 2 of them were 40, the third was 46
Cost: Rs 14,200 for a set of 4

On the Aura catalouge numbers are: D6350, A8350 & C9350
Apparently there is a worker strike at the factory and hence limited stocks.
