Default Maruti Suzuki Ignis:Tyre and wheel upgrade.

As the title suggests this thread discusses Tyre upgrade if needed to the new Maruti Suzuki Ignis Please chip in all Tyre gurus. The car comes factory fitted with 175/60/15 irrespective of models or fuel type with Bridgestone ecopla if I am not wrong. So chip in with suggestions friends.

Tyre sizes can also be upgraded to 185 or 195 with options in 15 and in 16 inches. What will be optimal?

You can upgrade to 195/60 R15 and 205/55 R16.

But I feel the best upgrade would be 195/60 R15.

I think better to stick to 15 inch size, to keep the good ride quality of the Ignis.

The tyre sizes to go for would be

185/60 , only a -2.4 percent difference
195/60 a 2.9 percent diff

Somebody who just wants a little better grip than usual but wants FE and just city driving, better to stick to 175 sizes but swap to Michelins XM2.

from there on, the grip levels increase and I think 195 would be the upper limit(although actually 205/55 size has the least difference but I think the tyre would stick out and may rub against the suspension or walls while turning).
XM2 and Primacy 3ST both are available in 195 section for the same price(6k), so for best performance and comfort go for the Primacy , and for FE the XM2.

A cost effective option would be the Apollo Alnac, definitely a better performing tyre than Ecopia in everything except the FE.
