Indica being a smaller car cannot take the tyres of a sedan which has a larger wheel base.

Default Need used tyres for zen

@crdi: Sorry for hijacking your thread

Hi guys,

I have a 98 model zen which comes with 145/70 R13 tyres. I am looking for used tyres for the same. If anyone is upgrading their tyres, I'd be interested. Another question I have is regarding where I can find used tyres.. are there any shops for the same? If yes, can anyone guide me to such a shop in bangalore?

Thanks!
Rajdeep

Your best bet would be to go to a few tyre showrooms & ask them if they would have any used tyres for your car. They usually have a few sets lying around which they give out cheap but of course they will not be willing to guarantee anything about the tyre's condition or longevity. So you'll be on your own there.

IMHO though I would never advise anybody to go in for used tyres. Do the upgrades two tyres at a time if not all four at the same time, but please stick to new tyres if possible. The risk is simply not worth the money saved in purchasing used tyres unless they are nearly new & taken off a new car (generally happens when owners upgrade to bigger tyres).
