Xotiq, 195 65 R 15 is a different upsize. Could you tell me if there is any change in GC because of this?
I did not find any problem with GC after the change, have driven almost 2k kms with the yoko's
Can anyone let me know if changing from 185/65/15 to 195/65/15 reduces or increases GC

It increases GC by 6.5 mm. Also the diameter change is bordering the 2% limit. check this table below. I upgraded to Michelin 195/60/15.

Thanks, now would the 2% variance cause a problem?

May not be a big issue I guess. Check the vehicle with full load to see if there is a fouling in the wheel well due to additional dia. You will surely not face GC issues with additional 7mm clearance .

No. I did not upgrade the Alloys. 205/60/R15 sits well on the stock alloys.

I have already clocked 6800 Kms, with 4 trips to my hometown (Solan) and Shimla. The Yokos are amazing and provide marginal improvement in handling and braking. I didn't see any perceivable difference in road noise though.

The size - 205/60 is the right size to upgrade in my opinion.

These fat tyres fill the arches really well.
Is there any effect on the warranties and so on if you this kind of upsize on Maruti vehicles.

No. Please refer to GTO's post. The diameter difference is just 0.9% which is within permissible limits.

They fit the arches very well and don't look oversized at all. In fact this was my first criteria... I wanted to retain the stock look and needed only the width to increase. From a casual glance no one can make out that I have upsized.

@Nayak. The upsize looks neat and not too oversize from your pictures. In fact, I also checked my vehicle with the 205. I somehow felt this to be slightly jutting outside the body. Moreover, I wanted to avoid increasing the GC and settled for Michelin 195/60. Anyways, he did not have the Yoko A drive in stock and the next version was Rs500 more expensive per tyre.

Guys,

Looking at the tyre upsizing from the fuel economy point of view, how much would be the relative difference in fuel consumption figures for 195 and 205 wide tyres over the default 185?

I know that opsizing and fuel economy don't really go hand in hand, but still, would like to know as to how much would one be really losing in terms of fuel consumption by upsizing to either of the two sizes?

Regards,
Jaspreet Singh

Hi ,

I've also booked a silver ZDI and will be delivered around december. Since you mentioned that you have done 4 long trips . I was curious to know what kinda mileage figures are you getting . Kms/l ? I was wondering , if its the same fiat engine thats used in the punto and the linea , does it deliver the same mileage figures of around 20 ?

I have been getting 16.8 KMPL. I have been told that mileage will improve by 10-15% after 10,000 Kms service.

Can't really indicate the difference between the stock and my 195 since I changed to 195 as soon as I got my delivery. However I have driven around 600 Kms (mostly in city) and mileage I get is around 15kmpl. of course this should increase after 1st service.

Thanks Nurni!

Since you are getting 15 & Sudhir is getting 16, I guess I'll be able to get close to 17 since we have comparitively lesser traffic (jams) in Chandigarh!

Divided between 195 & 205 now - really want to take the plunge this time and go for 205, they look fabulous on Sudhir's Ertiga!

Will go for either Acceleres or Conti's as I have had a very pleasant experience with the two sets of Conti's that I've used on my Indigo so far.

Regards,
Jaspreet Singh

Hi Jaspreet,

I have already crossed 17 KMPL. What's your latest figure?

Completed 3000kms, 195/65/15 seems to be doing fine.
-Mileage within city hovers between 15-15.5kmpl.
-On highways it goes till 17-18kmpl max.
