Question Tyre change 4 Indica V2 DLS...

Hi guyz,

I am planning for 185/60 R13 for my indica. Now its running with stock tyres..




When a contacted a tyre dealer he said its better not to use bigger tyre size since it couses suspension problem. Is it so???
He also told that some customer had a bad experiece and so chaged to stock configuration...
i want to know whether its an odd problem or is it happens with all indicas..what about 185/60 R13?..which brand?
pls help...


cheers

I am using this tyre since around 35000 kms on odo, with the odo now at 61000kms. The tread depth has held and suspension is going good, even with my spirited driving. The brand is bridgestone potenza GIII 185/60R13 tubeless radial.
Only downside is that its directional, so the spare wheel is a Goodyear Ducaro tubeless 185/60R13 so that if I get a puncture my spare can fit anywhere.

I'd suggest 175s since I feel 185's are a bit too broad for an NA indica.

Agree with nitrous...185 is too much without the wheel arches as in the new indica....go for 175 rubber

For the Indica, 175/60 R13 or 185/60 R13 is ideal. Dont go for 14" as you'll need lower profile tyres which are not recommended on our roads.

Mods, please move this thread to the appropriate section.

Indica V2 Turbo comes with 14inchers and hence i dont think putting 14inchers is a problem.
CHeck the tyre bible and choose a nice 14inchers. Also dont forget to send a PM to iraghava for assistance.

The V2 turbo has 165/65 R14 and the same aspect ratio as the 13 inchers, also it's gear ratios are different from the V2 NA. So if you put 165/65 R14 on the NA version, you'll get a big speedo error.

apollo acellere would be the VFM choice, and 185/60 is the correct upsize

@ adityamunshi, can the indica turbo console be obtained and fitted onto a regular indica to facilitate fitting 14 inchers ? the turbo DLX console looks very nice , with al finish dials and stuff

if you fit 14 inchers, the steering will become a bit heavier. wider tyres will also have a similar effect

Default Tyres

Even i have to change the tyres shortly. May be the current will last for another 5K Kms. I do not want to go for alloys. Please can anyone provide details for which tyres i can go for. The current JK tyre's are crap and if gets flat tyre, it is real pain to change the wheel(specially the front wheels).

You can buy the console and get it fitted but im not 100% sure. Either ways, you still wont be able to use 14 " tyres. I think it has to do with the gear ratios rather than the console.
Tanveer or anyone please correct me if im wrong.

IMHO the following would be the best choice. As I already have used both for our cars.

185/60 R13 Apollo Accelere (For V2 NA Diesel)
185/60 R14 Apollo Accelere (For V2 Turbo)

I am still having 185/60 R14 Apollo Accelere on my V2 turbo
