Default Tyre upsize for Matiz !

hi
my matiz's rear tyres have gone bald and need to be replaced. all the tyres are stock on rims. I am not too sure of the tyre size however It says 175/R13. I will be shifting the front tyres to the rear and installing new rears.

I want to know if I can have tubeless tyres installed on the rim? So In this case, I will have two tubeless and rest three "with tube" tyres.

Also, which make of tyres and model would you suggest and how much would they cost (approx)?

Will tubeless tyres be less hassle than the tubetype tyres?

thanks

firstly, the matiz stock tyre size is 145/70/r13 and NOT 175.
yes tubeless tyres can be installed on rim however this is not advisable, do a search and you will find more info about tube vs tubeless tyresin this forum.
i wouldnt mix tube and tubeless tyres. cost i have no idea, but have heard that the michelin certis is good for comfort.
n tube tyres r easier to repair in case of puncture as almost any local tyre guy can do it.
