What I had in mind for upsize was 185/60-14. The steering is pretty hard in slow speed and I do not want to make it worse. Should I go for 195/60-14 tyre?
Akshay, what was your experience after upsize?
Your Prime has 175/60-14 or 175/65-14..?

Thats a pretty odd size.
Can anyone confirm this?

if you stick to 14 inch your ride quality will not be compromised. do change the tyre.for the power getz crdi offers you could use better road handling and grip. go for the 195/60/r14 michelin XM1. do not worry about the rim size etc. the alloy wheel shops do this everyday and will give you the right width. so what colors are on offer for the getz crdi and which one did u opt for.

mods,I am sorry if i jacked the thread.

cheers Ramie
195/50 r15 is the perfect upsize. it has less than 1% error. it definitely wont scrape. the ride will become a little stiffer than normal. dont go to 16" since the getz anyway ahs a suspension on the stiffer side and it will kill the ride.

patience wins - i havent upsized my tyres. will do so soon.

i feel the getz needs wider tires than the stock ones offered, try putting on 195s. Yoko es100 would be my choice. I'm using the michelin xm1 and while it is a great tire, i feel it wears out too fast. As for the alloys, don't buy them from the dealer but from the aftermarket tire shops. U could go in for hr, league or lenso. Also while choosing the tire size, go through the tire size calculator so that u can get a proper size which does not change the speedo readings.

Akshay i had gone to see the Lenso NX series and they are just mind blowing,ok i will stick to the 15inchers i would go for the Yokohama ES100 with 195/50/R15.

can any one explain the tyre size 195/50/R15 the 50 stands for,is it related to the width of the tyre??

50 means that your tyre sidewall has 97.5mm of rubber(50% of 195).
More the sidewall better would be the ride quality and vice versa.

ramie - 50 profile will be fine as long as you slow down a bit for the rough patches and potholes. and look at s-drives instead of es100s. they are newer.

More the comfort its the damage caused while running the car with such low profile tyres.
If u are driving on some unfamiliar highway and doing 100kmph + speed and suddenly u see a pothole which u cant avoid and the result is a bent rim or tyre bulge or even a bent suspension arm damage in some cases.
I've had such experience in my zen which is running on 165/65-13 rubber which has 107mm sidewall rubber so imagine with 97mm sidewall rubber in 195/50..Comfort part will be taken care off by the suspension which is way better than what zen has....

165/65-13 i think i was also using the same on my 1997 zen with HR alloys wheel,for sure the ride was bumpy and i had installed spacer rings at the rear suspension,moreover the pain was no power steering and stiff steering wheel:( got fed up with this and then finally one sold it,but i did good outstations on that car without even a punture till date i sold.I was using goodyear.

I own a Getz 1.3

The correct Stocksizes are as follows:

Getz GLE and GVS: 155/80 R13
Getz GLS: 175/70 R13
Getz GLX: 175/65 R14 (with Alloys)
Getz CRDi: 175/65 R14

A short history:

The Getz originally came with only two stock configs

175/65 R14 (with alloys) for GLX and the 175/70 R13 for the rest (GL and GLS)

Then the Swift happened and Hyundai changed the trim/model nomenclature to GLE, GVS, GLS and GLX instead of GL, GLS and GLX when first introduced.

Under the new models GLE and GVS came with 155/80 R13 and GLS and GLX remain unchanged.

Then came Getz Prime - The stock tyre config was retained for all the four models HOWEVER the GLE and GVS now came with 1.1 engine. SO we can say that the 1.3 was discontinued for GLE and GVS. However some GVS can be seen with 175/70 R13 as on requests some dealers gave the 175/70 tyres with GVS (offcourse for some cash)

Coming to the question. Going by the above logic the correct upsize for the Getz CRDi should be 185/60 R14 or 185/55 R15. With the second one being more accurate.

EDIT: However if we take GLS as base (i.e. 175/70 R13) the 195/50 R15 is the PERFECT upsize!
