sales guys are sales guys.

change tyre before you run around too much with stock as you wont get good price if you cover too much kms.

Go for 185 if you can.

I have B350 in my zen which hasn't been great in any aspect when compared to the GIIIs & XM1 i have on the other cars.

rks
It would be better to choose between XM1 or Turanza ER60

Here is the latest news item (dated 22 July) on B250 tyres, which seems to be based on new technology:

Tyres-Online: News

Quote:
Meanwhile, Renault has chosen the new Bridgestone B250 165/65 R15 81 T as an ideal complement to its Modus MPV. [...]

Safety was a key consideration for Renault in developing the new vehicle, which can include up to six airbags, ABS anti-lock brakes and traction control.

In this respect, the Bridgestone tyre is a logical choice, as safety was also central to its design. Soon to be launched on the replacement market, the B250 excels in wet and dry braking, without losing out on rolling resistance.[...]

"Peugeot's decision to fit the Turanza, our premium touring car tyre, to its new mini confirms the company's determination to ensure that the 1007 will be as enjoyable to drive as it is interesting to look at. And for Renault, the B250 will certainly contribute to the sense of security enjoyed by drivers and passengers in its smallest-yet MPV."
I think B250 will not be a performance tyre, but oriented more towards safety and tyre life. Maybe we should wait to see how this tyre fares on Indian roads before coming to a conclusion.

Finally converged to Michelin XM1 with stock size 175/70 R13. The dealer is charging me an extra amount of Rs. 3600/- for replacement of all the tyres. I enquired in the market, 3600/- looks to be quite reasonable.

Unfortunately, the delivery of my car is delayed by few days, will get hold of the new car this week. Will update you in details about my experience.

Thanks for your time in helping me select the proper tyre.

Congrats! I must say it is a very good decision and the deal is reasonable.

With new getz prime, GLE & GVS comes with 1.1 engine of Santro. Its only the GLS and top end GLX which comes with the old getz 1.3 engine. For features, please visit the following link:
Welcome to Hyundai Motor :: Hyundai Getz Prime

Note that GLE & GVS comes with undersized 155/80 R13 goodyear tyres. Whereas GLS & GLX comes with 175/70 R13 goodyear tyres.

GLE is almost a lakh cheaper than GLS.

Thanks SUPS.I never though that GETZ Prime GLE and GVS in available with 1.1 l engine.

I think i am better off with buying a top end Santro - X0 Limited edition.

Probably too late for advice, but I also changed from Goodyear 155/80 R13 stock tyres to Michelin XM1 175/70 R13 on OEM wheels for my 6 month old Getz GVS(non-Prime). Quite happy with the choice.

The dealer here in Chennai charged Rs 5500 for changing all 5 tyres. Also worth mentioning is that the best tyre exchange deals are found on the day you take delivery of the car.

Hi Friends,

I'm getting my Getz 1.3 GLX in the next few days. It comes with 14" alloys and 175/65 R14 bridgestone tubed tyres.

I want to upgrade to tubeless tyres and am thinking of putting Michelin's Energy XM1. Is it advisable to upsize to 185/60 R14 for extra grip? Ride comfort and FE are priorities. High speed cornering is not that important.

185/60 would be fine and so would 195/60.

Thanks Akshay1234. Would you be able to tell me whether there is a noticeable difference in the ride comfort if I move from 175/65 profile tyres to 185/60 profile?
