Default Upgrade for Wagon R Vxi

Is it possible to upgrade 155 tyre on Wagon R Vxi to 165? Will such upgrade create any problem in running/FE/warranty?

Correct me if I'm wrong but doesn't the WagonR come with 145/70 as standard? I think there are some owners already running upsizes on their cars.

Crazy Driver care to respond to this?

Of course yes...

WagonR VXi comes with 155/65 R13s as standard... LX and LXi comes with 145/70 R13s...

I guess you could safely upgrade to 165/60 R14s... Dont think they will affect the ride by much (will be slightly harder though), and the handling could improve... As for the warranty, dont think any dealer will qoute that as a reason.... However, if you can talk to the dealers before upgrading, its better...

However, i remember one owner saying in a thread here in team-bhp that 165/65 R13 does not fit the wheel well properly... And does hit against the inside of the wheel wells while going over potholes...
