I'm thinking of changing the spare tyre to a 15 inch steel rim and one of my tyres is about 1 year old 175/65 R15 XM2 (had to replace it due to a side wall tear in my parking). Is it safe to reuse that tyre for the spare and put in four new upsized tyres. The concern is that it shouldn't cause any instabilities if the spare is used in rotation.
Original spare is 14 inch with a speed rating of 120 kms/hr. Replacing the spare with R15 is a much better option. I've driven more than 50 kms with a donut tire on my friends car and did not face any stability issue at speeds around 80.

Did you check Yokohama earth series ? Let us know impact on your mileage once you upgrade to 195 tires

I did consider of the Yokohoma Earth 1, but I've heard that they're soft and you lose performance after 15-20K KMs. Have not heard anything of the sort for P3STs.

I'll post the mileage figures post upgrade. Currently, I'm clocking 12.5 - 13 kmpl in city conditions with AC working at all times.

How does the Earth1 perform after 8 months of use ? How much did it affect your FE ?

First instance:
Ended up with two tire side wall cut (Left front and rear)

This time it was right front and rear tires side wall damage.

Did you have 175/65 on 7J rim ?

Different car and different size. But root cause of the issue is same.

Marginal change in FE, so hardly any impact there. Definite positive change in grip on upward slopes/flyovers. Better handling on turns, higher speeds and softer ride overall.

It's survived a 10k stint in pothole-ridden Mumbai, including some really nasty bumps and continues to impress.
