Default Alloy + Rubber for an Accent viva crdi?

i need a set of new tyres for my accent viva - crdi its done 30000kms.

i need a set of tyres that will look broad enough, which is my main criteria.(currently have stock tyres and rims 175/70-R13, upgrading these after the 35000kms mark)


my requirement is that it should technically be sound configuration, not hurting the sturts too much or affecting the handling too much. for the car is under pretty rough usage at times when dad appoints drivers to drive the car and the senseless drivers dont slow down even at pot holes and got couple of my rims bent once.

when i went to ashoka wheels at minister's road(near necklace road) here in Hyderabad the dealer suggested me the configuration 195/55-R15 tyres and "LEAGUE" or "PLEASURE" branded alloys as the best for my requirement!

and said the bridgestone potenza-III comes in this configuration costing 4800 each tyre and the alloys of either the league or the pleasure brand would cost me 17000 for a set of 4!


the dealer said the profile below 55 would be too low for the rough rides and should be at least 55!

he said 60 profile would make the turns difficult and would rub against the wall at the rear tyres when seated in full capacity be it R-14 or R-15 alloys and said 55 is the best profile is this true or is there any other configuration avaliable?

he also suggested me not to go for the 205/50-R15 for this would become too low profile! and may affect handling on accent as there is not enough room to accomodate these tyre spec!


please suggest me best configuration first for my accent viva-crdi!
best brand of tyres and mags in the configuration for a budget not more than 40000bucks!

today i saw bridgestone potenza-III with the configuration 205/60-R13
will these be good configuration to proceed with? for both the looks as well as the comfort and the alloy wheel safety? i am asking this as the tyres seemed higher profile tyres

you can upsize with the foll.-->

185/60 R14
195/55 R14
or
195/50 R15 - i would recommend.

195/60 R15 are no good for the accent
205/60 R13 are ok, but do you want to stick with 13" wheels? and 205 is a little too wide i guess, youll end up feeling a lotta road.

dude please read my request and my whole query i need a bit higher profile tyres else my drivers will definitely break my wheels for they already bent a couple of rims on the car already and i had then through-ed out so that was the reason i was asking for the 60 profile i.e. 205/60-R13 or the 195/60-R15 other wise i was thinking of 195/55-R14(just as the dealer suggested me)
or is 205/55-R14 possible for accent crdi -viva i mean is that configuration available in the first place!?

then go with 195/55-14 tyres like your dealer said.

you'll have a hard time finding 205/55-14 tyres, i dont think any of the good tyre manufacturer make that size.
you might get some taiwanese or korean tyres of those specs, but they are no good.

why do you say that i will end up feeling a lot of road with the 205/60-R13 tyres can you please explain the technical reasons?

i am interested in this configuration because i wanted broader tyres that will look good on the car is this configurations also feasible?

or in case i wish to go for 205/60-R13 configuration what are the difficulties would i be facing?

Don't go for the 13" unless you want to keep the stock rims. I suggest you move to 14" not 15". The sizes in 14" mentioned by blue2ki are corrrect:

Quote:
185/60 R14
195/55 R14
Both will not touch. 185/60-14 is the option available as factory fit on teh Viva petrol.

Rider - Please do not post your query in multiple threads. I had answered your query in the other thread also but you've chosen to ignore that & start a new one.

Anyways, considering your road conditions & driving by your chauffeurs, I would suggest you go in for 185/60 R14 or 195/55 R14 at the most. Do not go for 15" as this will lead to an increasing chance of tyre failure due to hitting pot holes at high-speeds.

195/55 R14 no options are there unfortunately.

As for 195/60 yes, that is an option but the OD difference is slightly out of tolerance whether you compare with the Viva CRDi's stock size (175/70 R13) or the Viva Petrol's stock size (185/60 R14).

195/60-14 has slight OD difference but doesn't foul anywhere witht the wheel wells. So, it could be an option.

You can go in for 205/60 R13, the OD difference is negligible. But do make sure that it does not rub the fenders/wheel arches.

please explain what OD means and you want me to stick to the 195 width if the 205 touches the fenders or the wheel arches right?
