I think you should stick to 13 inch with 175/70 tyres. The 1000 wheel bay is rather restrictive to accommodate more upsize tyres.

I agree with WhiteKnight, go in for 175-70-R13's Bridgestone Grid !!!'s is what i feel will be good for you. They will cost you 11k approx for 4 tires.

Alloys......Well Neo, Aura, HR and Millenium make good alloys at a budget of 13k for a set of 5. In Mumbai Saifee Tires near Juhu Garden have a great variety. You can also try Bombay Tires or Anand Tires in Milan Subway.

You can search TBHP for pros/cons of Tube Vs Tubeless tyres. What is mentioned by prince85 is tubeless, I think.

Exactly, good tires like Brigestone Grid !!!'s come tubeless but you can always use tubes in a tubeless tire as well and run it like normal tubed type tires but i guess you have to be nuts to do that. Tubeless is the way to go and they are much safer than the tubed type wheels.

You are right. I am not keen on anything above 175/70 as this car could be pretty old. If it is shod with 195/50/R15, the wheel alignment must be perfect always. Even a slight camber could scratch the wheel bay
What do you say?

The Esteem Lx and the Lxi come with 155/80/R-13's. Dunno about the M1000 but i guess it should be the same. The Esteem VXI comes with 175/70/R-13's as stock and i feel there shouldn't be any problems with this size in the M1000 as well since the wheel bay of the esteem and the M1000 is similar(correct me if i am wrong).

IMHO, 175/70/R13's are perfect for the Esteem/M1000. Anything lesser makes and the car will be severly under-tired.

You could have gone in for 185/65/R-13's but then i guess the M1000 is severely underpowered and since its a non-ps car i believe it will make your steering quite hard.

Cheers

Yes .... tubeless tyres have been a good experience for me ..... i had installed Appollo Accelere and was pretty satisfied with the tyres .....

i had a tyre burst on my 1000 with the old tubed tyres, which made me go for the tubeless ones .... and they have been a revealation ..... no problems whatsoever .... hope that helps ...

Tubeless tyres for any car are better than tube tyres. I suggest you go in for tubeless tyres if you are planning to buy alloy wheels too.
