How can a 13" tyre go with a 12" rim and vice versa? First thing is the rim and tyre size should be identical

Problem is that you have one set of 12" wheels & tyres & one set of 13" wheels & tyres. If you do switch the Matiz's tyres to the Zen, what happens to the Matiz? I wouldn't recommend running it on 12".

Also, does anybody know what the PCD/Lug pattern is for the Matiz?

the 145/70R13 will fit on the zen...but you will have to swap the rims as well.

the only "con" is that your ride comfort will reduce to some extent.apart from that there is no other issue.

145/70 R13 is good for Zen but i dont think so that 12" will work for Matiz.
