if you want the best combo i recommend that the 195/60 r14(michelin pilots) would offer good handling without compromising too much on accerlation since the rolling diameter( remains the same moreover aloy wheels may compensate for the increase in tyre weght due to fiting 195ers may be compensated by the use of the alloy wheels.this would also not reqiure recaliberation of the speedometer.

hyundai may not have miscalculated but they may have compromised to bring the costs of the car down.

the verna crdi is already fully stripped down and the tyres have been given the same treatment.

i have test driven both the cars flat out and found the crdi to under tyred. the tyres locked up immediately on hard braking also while cornering the tyres lost grip and screeched their way through.

this was not the case with the petrol which felt much more grippy on the road. i dint know at the time that the tyres on both were different. only when i got out to see the tyres did i realise that.

it is advisable to upsize the crdi's tyres. maybe till 195 would be best.

i would suggest 195/60-14 on the same existing rims.

I totally agree with the other about the Verna CRDi being under tyred. I would suggest a combo of ABS + 195/60 R14s. The tyres are totally about what you want from them. Here are a few options:

Bridgestone:

G3: performance, good looks
Turanza: comfort, decent performance

Goodyear:

NCT 5: comfort, decent performance, acceptable tread life
F1: high performance, great in the wet, bit noisy

Let us know how it turns out!

Latest update is that my dad got a call from the hyundai dealer saying that ABS is not being offered even as an option ...

I just dont understand the website says it is optional ..
maybe I should ask him to contact a different dealer

OT
WHERE IS THE FORTUNER ???
