Gigy,
I don't think U can install 165/80/R14 on to Baleno cause the total Dia will increase by 1inch almost.
Other two are good upgrades with a 14inch rim.
165/80/R14
Width of Tyre 165mm = 6.5inch
Height of Ur tyre 0.8 * 6.5inch = 5.2inch
Total Diameter of Ur tyre = 14+5.2*2 = 24.4 inch

185/65/R14
Width of Tyre 185mm = 7.3inch
Height of Ur tyre 0.65 * 7.3inch = 4.75inch
Total Diameter of Ur tyre = 14+4.75*2 = 23.5 inch

Difference Between the two dias 24.4-23.5 = 0.9inch, I thing It'll touch the wheel well.
Guys please correct me if I'm wrong.
Thanks,
Mega

I need some help on alloys.
I had been to JC road last week to look out for alloys with a lil bit of groundwork done on league alloys, had short listed few mags already.
The League LG175 goes well wid the Baleno.
The alloy guy was happy to give me 14 rims, but when I went to the tyre guy across the street he said Y dont U go for 15. LG175 15 rims comes only in 6.5 (width) so can I fit this on to my car without any modifications?
The options that I have are
1.LG175 14X6 with 195/60 R14
2.LG175 15X6.5 with 195/55 R15[/FONT]
Well the tyres would be Michelin (First Preference) or Goodyear
Thanks,
Naveen

Go for 195/60-14 Michelin or Bridgestone tyres with 14x6j alloys

this is picture of baleno with swift wheels.
there is no problem regarding installation. only what i loose is traction on turns, and body roll. ofcourse those shocks were raised an inch when i had 18/70/R13s.

Nice alloys, mega5918.

I did the rounds of a couple of wheel shops last weekend. Found a nice set of wheels from "K Speed". Is that a good brand ? Anyone has any idea ? Could not get much info from the Net.

Also, since I want to stick to the stock wheel size of 13 x 5J, the range is pretty limited as only Aura makes alloys in that size. All the other brands come only in 13 x 5.5J. As per carbible, for my tyre size of 165/80R13, the wheel width can be anything from 4.5" to 6". Do you guys see any problem due to me going for a 5.5" wide wheel instead of 5" ?

BTW, while at the shop, saw the cracked alloys of a guy who drove his Ikon into the median.

I've told u earlier also go for 5.5j instead of 5j as it gives u an option of upgrading tyres in future....n with 165/80 tyres it wont affect the ride quality at all...

My suggestion is to upgrade the tyre as well....I'm having 185/70-13 tyres on my stock baleno rims....ride quality is almost the same but the grip level is totally amazing thanks to potenza GIII....N i'm getting around 12kmpl in city with just 4-5kms running daily.....Got 15.6kmpl during my Del-Jaipur trip with 5ppl n all the time doing 100-130kmph...

Nice understated design on your alloys, & a good choice of tyre. Your Baleno looks great! Congrats mega5918!

Thumbs up K-Speed Alloys

I've had 13" K-Speed Alloys on my car since ages. They were first on my Esteem, & were moved to wifey's Alto (pic here) recently. They're great, can't complain, & damn sturdy.

It's quite difficult to find information on the net about these. I searched like crazy & came up with kaput.

Yeah, kpzen, you did mention it earlier. But, it is just that I would like to keep it as stock as possible - paranoid about that. Also, I have no plan of upsizing the tyres in future - happy with the current setup.

Thanks, elf. The lack of info on the web was kind of disheartening. Now that I have actual user experience speaking, I guess I can proceed without fear.

My friend has been on 205/50/R15 for some time now. He said he had no issues at all till now except for the ride becoming a little harder which he said is nothing unmanageable. His id is DesigNation here.

Well wanted to ask you guys if 16" would fit in without any issues? I saw a baleno in B'lore which was running on 235/35/R17. He said never ever did it touch the fenders or the mudguards . Btw the car looked more like a bullock cart

Let me know what you guys think of 205/45/R16 for a baleno?

16v100bhp,
205/45 R16 Is fine but the wheel has to rotate 4~5 time more than the stocks to complete a Kilometer if you are not worried about SPEEDO/ODO errors then it's a good choice. Yes There is a Baleno With 17" In Bangalore... If you visit any of the UK Rim n Tyre Web Sites They'll suggest from 14"~17" Rims... All The best let us know what you selected.
Thanks,
Mega

There's every possibility that it will scrape under full load...

For improving ride quality u'll have shift to 14" as diff sizes in 15" wont help much ..
