Default Alloy wheels and tubeless for Palio 1.2 NV ELX

Hi friends,

I am expecting my vehicle - 1.2 ELX nv to be delivered this week.
I would like to add alloy wheels and tubeless tyres.I am not very sure of the tyre and rim sizes that comes by default in Palio 1.2 elx nv.
I think its 165 and 13X5 respectively.

I checked with couple of shops in J.C Road for Aura Alloy wheels.
This is what they said on

1.Alloywheels
----------------
a) The Aura alloy wheels are in acute shortage due to some issues in
Hindalco.

b) They said that I can go for a 13 X 5.5 instead of 13x5 for 1.2 elx.

c) Neo ..no longer produces Alloys for Palio.the dealer was explaining something about the sizes, of which I didn't get any head/tail.

Are their statements correct?Guys, you can help me.

One dealer was quoting around Rs.14200 for 5 wheels of Aura - 13 x 5.5
Is it okay to put 13 x5.5 alloys.


2.Tubeless
------------
I would also like to replace the tyres (by default its Good Year with tube in 1.2 elx nv) with tubelss
ones...I think from the factory it comes as 165 R 13.The dealers were
saying that I should go for either 175 or 185 to get tubeless.They
were saying that I won't get 165 in tubeless.
Won't I get 165 in tubeless?Also, wouldn't that upsizing affect the
odometer readings?

When I checked this whith him,he told me that the mismatches would be
very very minute.He had a software from BridgeStone tyres in which he did this analysis.It was showing a minor variance only

If I am going for 185 tyre size,what should be the appropriate alloy wheel size?

Also what would be the difference in terms of mileage if I go for alloys and tubeless

Please can you guys help me take an appropriate decision?


Thanks,
Dileep

just a suggestion,u can even go for 14" rims and tubeless tyres.the ride wont get hampered as the palio has a pretty beefed up suspension.the palio1.6 has 14"tyres.opting for the 14" combo can also allow you to go for the original 14" fiat alloys as present on the nv sport and 1.6 sport/gtx.these in my opinion would be the best lookin alloys for the palio.175/60 R 14 wud be the standard size on 14 inchers.the fiat alloys cost 4k per piece(approx).

No.I don't want to go for R14 since it may affect the odometer readings.

Palio NV Sport comes with R14, right? So there would be a way to correct the Odo

Making it 14" wont affect odometer , what makes the difference is if you alter the perimeter of the tyre .Basically thats outer radius that counts , for that just lower the profile...if you want to go for bigger rims.

As far as I remember Palio 1.2 comes with 165/80 R 13 tyres...
So upsizes for you are

13" : 185/70 R 13
14" : 185/65 R 14 (BEST balance between ride and handling), 195/60 R 14

checl out this website for more options
