Default Thanks............ That was quick.

RJ Styles - Typo, the 45 profile are with the 16" inch wheels.

Thanks for your response, I will downsize then.
The only thing is the 16" are Momo wheels...........Heartburn

How well Bridgestone B250 fare against Michielins? Esp on grip & noise part

Did not check B250 out so cannot comment...as for me, I will probably change to Energy XM1s again as the tires are very comfortable and silent. In addition, they have not even once gone out of balance (meant wobble) that kind of stands testimony to the accuracy in their construction.
Grip is average..if you want to have better grip, try Potenzas or Michelin Pilot Preceda/Sport....be prepared to have a slightly harsher ride and more noise in the bargain

Default Finally changed my wheels

Hi Guys

Finally Changed the wheels on my Baleno. Upgraded from the stock tyres after 4 years to 14" Apollos Acceleres and Michelin XM1+ 185/65/14 tyres. Drove to Karwar for the New Years and the car handles like a dream.

Default Need Help in Tyre Gyan - Baleno LXI

Hi Guys

Need some advice for upgrading the tyres for my 05 Baleno LXI.As you know the LXI come with 165/80 R13 Steel Wheels.

I was in Bangalore and saw a Nice Silver Baleno with White or Silver 15 ' Alloys . Need info abt 15 ' Alloys and which tyre sizw i can mount on them , i dont want to compromise by going lower that 70 Profile tyre as its bad on bad roads in Pune.

Oh boy! You have some fancy ideas! 70 profile on 15"!

I suggest you stop dreaming and be realistic!

Get 14" and get 185/'65 R14.

But is not possible to fit the Toyota Corolla size of 185/65 r15 size on the Baleno ? Well i have gone ahead and put a Suspension Raise kit for my Baleno .

And anyway first time in my life i am driving such a low car as i was a Bolero driver for all this years ..! Sorry for the confused State MI8 !!

Hi BHPans, I have a question. I am planning on upgrading to 195/60/R15 Yokohama Tyres. Will it fit a Baleno. Why are people always reluctant on upgrading to 15inch Rims? I am not sure. Please help. Thank you all.

If I recall correctly, 195/55/15 would be the correct upsize for the Baleno.

There are quite a few members who've run 15"ers without much issue. Some may shy away from it as ride quality might go down a notch.

195/55 R15 is a really nice size for the Baleno. My pick would be the Conti CPC2. Comfort, performance, handling, everything rolled into one/
