175/65/14 are a good upsize but I have been warned the rear might scrape on full load. 175/70/13 is supposedly the BEST upsize (but the itch is to switch to 14", right?)
I've done a 40km trip recently with 5 people (including me) and luggage. No issue with scrapping at all.

14 inch (185/60/14). I have mentioned a link to my i10 & tyre review somewhere earlier in this thread.

The source is our very own "Tyrewalla bhaiya" i.e. 'suggested' against 185 section.

I said 175/65/14 "might" scrape on FULL load. Source as above!

The same tyrewala bhaiiya told me no issues, go for it and never did he once mention that the tyre is not right for the engine size...

Thanks man, seems like the tyrewalle bhai is getting inconsistent

I will ask my friend to consider all upsizes and get what suits him best! Cheers

@ ankit & Tejas: I think the difference is engine size.

185/60R14 would be appropriate for i10 1.2L Kappa engine whereas 175/70R13 would be appropriate for i10 1.1L iRDE engine. I don't think 175/65R14 is perfect upgrade for i10 in terms of OD(overall diameter).

Guys, I drove my i10 in cheenai track with stock tires and I felt the car was understeering a little too much and was cutting the fun.

So, I changed only the front 2 tires to 175/70R13 Michellin XM1 and wow my car is so much more fun. Corners are a little scary, cause if you are not watchful in the turn in the car just oversteers and its just great catching it.

My i10 is an all new car now.

175 etc means the width of the tyre
70 etc means the height of the tyre wall
13 means the diameter of the alloy / rim (inner diameter of the tyre)

J is nothing as such. It signifies that you are mentioning the width of the alloy. Thus, 5.5J means the width of the alloy where the tyre fits is 5.5inches.

I checked the i10 UK spec on the Hyundai site. The UK model comes with 2 options

1. 155/60 R14
2. 175/60 R14

The Alloys that come with the Car are 5.0 J

Effectively, the sizes they sell here are slightly different from the ones sold here. I don't think the Odo's are re-caliberated for different countries. I presume a few points of odo error is considered given.

Bought alloys for my i10 a week back
4 ATC rims for 9800/-(without B/W)
4 Apollo acceleres 175/70 R13 for 9200/-(with b/w)
buy back of 4k for my 4 tires with rims. 1 was totally bald. other had 3 puntures.
Car's handling characteristics have changed a lot.! way better grip in the corners and more no more of the crappy road noise from th stock tires.
Also, tried putting 185/65R13 first. Looked way too much of an over kill.
