My Estilo is due for its 2nd tyre upgrade. It currently runs on Ceat Milaze 165/65/R13 with alloys. I'm pretty much happy with the handling with these 165 section tyres, but definitely not happy with the noise these Ceats make!
  • Should I downsize to 155 as many have recommended it as an ideal upgrade? Also, will it be wise to fit 155 on my current alloys which house 165? Logically, it won't be a snug fit, right?
  • Should I think of anything else than Michelin XM2? Have almost finalized Michelins after reading all the reviews.

Has anybody tried 175/65 R14 tyres on k10 WagonR with stock size 155/65 R14?
I'm thinking of upgrading to a michelin xm2 of the 175/65 r14 size.
Will there be scraping of wheels on using this size? Anyone tried this size?

At last i upgraded my tyres to michelin energy xm2 165/65 r14 from stock apollo amazer 3G 155/65 r14.
Along with the tyres, i bought a set of plati alloys of width 6.5j, which i think is a little too much for the opted tyre size. But as the tyres fits the rim, using the combination happily.
Regarding the tyre, below are my observations,
1. The road/rolling noise has definitely decreased. Very silent when compared to stock.
2. Cornering has improved. Better stability at curves over the stock.
3. 'cushioning' feel owing to the higher profile.

After 1000kms post the change, i am very much happy about the choice and overall a satisfied customer. Hope the tyres will serve me well for a decent mileage.

I recently up-sized the tyres of the WagonR to Apollo Amazer 4G 155/65 R13 on stock 4J rims. A wild thought has occurred to me. Could a 5J Baleno 13" rim/alloy or the very old Honda City 13" alloy fit without fouling anything? I believe both are 4x100 5J alloys and I've heard they are oh-ree-gee-nal Japanese Enkei alloys.

If yes, I can spend the weekend scouting the Junkyard for these ones. Tyre gurus, please help.

I had replaced OEM MRF tyres with 155/65/R13 tubeless tyres (Bridgestone) after 55k Kms. I would only recommend marginal upzing from the OEM ones if required. I did not face any issues with the OEM tyres. The ride has been better though with Bridgestone.

Now I am in a similar dilemma. I want to upgrade to 175/65 R14 or 175/60 R14 (extremely rare size). Why didn't you go ahead with that upsize? Is it possible and what are the demerits? I was hoping for a significant side-wall increase for a plusher ride. Also I find the wheel-well has sufficient clearance.

Apart from the size, I am also confused with the make, i.e. XM2 and Earth1. My needs are a plush ride, superior grip and near-zero puncture risk. The stock Amazer 3G are crap but they suffered only 1 puncture in all of 31k kms.

The stock size for WagonR k10 VXi is 155/65 R14.

Does a 4.7% increase in tyre OD cause any other problem apart from a lower ODO reading? I am looking at a tyre up size from 155 to 175 cross-section.

As I had stated in my previous post, I have upgraded to the 165/65 R14 XM2 tyres.

The main reasons behind my choice are,

1. Couldn't find anyone who have opted for the 175/65 size for a WagonR in the neighborhood or on Team-BHP, so my main query "Will the tyre scrap the wheel well under full load or on a full turn?" remain unanswered.

2. 175/65 sections would have lead to a larger speedometer-odometer error while the more friendly(less error) 175/60 sections were unavailable.

3. I had a feeling that 175s would be an overkill on a WagonR as it could adversely affect the performance of an already 'slow car'.

4. Last but not the least 'Mileage' factor.

And regarding the XM2s , now after i have driven them close to 10k mark,

1. Although the road noise was less at the beginning, now it has become prominent.
2. Due to the 165/65 section, the cushioning effect has increased compared to stock.
3. More confidence in taking corners when compared to stock tyres.
4. No pucntures or any other problems faced till now, although the tyres have seen some 'no road' conditions in Kerala. Touch wood. But yes, i was a bit too careful on driving through those roads.

And sorry for the late reply, was busy with exams.

Hope I have helped.

IMO, The lack of certainty about not scraping, and not finding a close size in 175 spec were valid concerns, but the rest were not so.

Even if you had taken 175's, the extension would have been 1 cm inward & 1 cm outward. There should be that much space in there. I moved from stock 155 to 175's on my A-Star, and dont see these problems. I have not felt any drop in FE or performance - even though mine is an AT

Thanks for your reply. Is there is any protrusion of the tyres and any additional mud-splashes due to these tyres? I will check at the dealer for 175 section tyres for possible problems.

All the best for your exams.

Since your A-Star doesn't show any problem, WagonR should be fine too. The wheel-wells seems big enough and over-all the car looks under-tyred. I think I will go ahead with the 175 sections. Michelin XM2 or Yoko A-Drives, which one would you suggest?

Hello Guys,

I have a WagonR Lxi 2007 model running on JK 145/70 R13 tube tyres. Need to replace a single tyre (as the tread on that tyre came out while driving) and was looking at the below:
http://www.snapdeal.com/product/mrf-...71s/1389274617
or
http://www.snapdeal.com/product/brid...e%20145/70/R13

Can i replace a single tyre with this tyre without any change?

Thanks,
Ramki

My WagonR tyre upgrade due in next 5-10K kms.
It came with stock size 145/80 r13. Considering 155/80 r13.
Yes, bit odo error is okay , assuming ride would be better. Worry is that it may scrap wheel well.

Has anyone tried this size (or bigger)? Any feedback?

I size upper is not prone to scraping. I upgraded from the stock 155/65 R14 to 165/65 R14. After upgrade, I know I could have gone upto 175 too but those tyres would make the car sluggish. IMO, you can safely go for 155/80 R13.

Guys, the scrapping wont really be an issue with Tire upgrades alone. What really matters here is if one is retaining the stock rims.

Remember that Alloys by default will be wider than standard OE RIM for WagonR which I think is 4J for LX and 4.5J for VX.

Along with the additional width of the rim is also the fact that most of these alloys result in Negative offset and that is exactly when the Tires scrap the wheel arches. And you will not notice the scraping till there are 4 occupants and some luggage and you pass over undulations above 60 KMPH.

In my WagonR, I had upgraded from stock 145/70/13 to 155/65/13 and had faced no issues on OE Rims but when I moved to Plati Alloys, the scrapping started and eventually I had to settle for suspension spacers for the rear.

A simple test if you look around the Altos, WagonR or Zens sporting alloys - Peep into the gap of the wheel arches of these cars and you will notice how an aluminium spacer ring is sitting over the coil spring of the rear suspension.

Summary: After long thought (esp. considering that the car is 5+ years / 47K already), decided to stick with OEM size.

Long Story :

Stock was Apollo; was good; had 3 punctures through the set' life. But very noisy last 5K Kms and had quite few cracks as well at the end. It is the scare of increasing (though small) cracks that forced the decision to be immediate.

Considering the car's current phase in life cycle, decided to stick with OEM size. Once that is closed, started with search for the right make. Because most of my (long) drives are at night, puncture resistance was the top attribute. So Michelin (considered soft) and JK (based on various reviews) were out. Apollo was out as the experience wasn't spectacular, though had no problems as such.

That left off MRF and Bridgestone. Only B290s were available made in June,16 (AR20s were not available in this size, at all; though listed in site). Got Oct made MRF ZVTS. Bought MRF ZVTS finally from a MRF exclusive shop nearby (SNR Tyres at Rammurthy Nagar signal). (I personally an MRF fan).

Initial impressions:
I am able to hear the engine after a loong time. Steering feels a little tight, but more responsive. Bumps, pot holes, in general road feels much much better! Would have to see how the tyres behave over period of time.
