KP's Getz is running on 185/65-14 Yoko A-Drive.
I dont think there will be any problem with that size.

hi guys!

How would a getz do with 14" stock rims and tyre upsized to 205/55/14?

I am planning to go for the Pirelli P6000 or P6. Used the P6000 in a few cars till now, and always been very very happy with it, super performance tyres!


Also, just for a general price update from hyderabad...
Pirelli P400 - 175/xx/13 = Rs.2,000 each
Pirelli P6000 / P6 - 195/60/14 = Rs.3,000 each

Hi guys,

Would also like to know what you would say i choose between:

1. Michelin PP1
2. Pirelli P6000

I see here many people are having PP1 and seem to be happy with it. I need performance tyres.
Thanks!

Forget fitting 205/55/14 on the stock rims. Stock rims are 5 inch wide and max they can hold is 195. 205 will be dangerous for sure.

Michelling PP1 is better here. Only problem is they cost over 1K compared to pirellis. If your budget permits, then go for PP1.

I do not think there would be any issue other than speedometer error.

The ground clearance of Getz is low. I also intend to go for 185/65 R14 to get some ground clearance and cushioning when upgrading from 175/65 R14.

I have done almost 30000 kms with 185/65-14 and it has proved to be a great upgrade for Getz so far.
No intention of upsizing in future.

Hi,

Can you please share your experiences on the better aspects of upsizing from 175/65-14 to 185/65-14. Also about the disadvantages and the speedo error please ...

I am planning to book a getz crdi and then change the stock tyres .. so wanted to get a feedback from you.

As i see you are still on stock rims. Do you think this size is ok with an 14" x 5.5 alloy of neo?

Is yoko tyres good for indian pot hole roads?

Kiren

14 x 5.5j rims won't be a problem at all. Why don't u think of upsizing to 15" ?
IMO there aren't much design options in 14" as compared to 15" and the stock wheels look better than most of the available 14" designs.
Just posting a pic of stock wheel caps for reference.

Alloy and Tubeless tyre for Getz CRDI-34-large.jpg
Yokohama A drives have not given me any problem in 30k kms. It has seen a lot of high speeds, fantastic tarmacs and also a few treacherous routes.

Prajesh,

Upsizing to 15 inches will it not hamper the warantee? And further the wall thickness will also get reduced. As i drive on bad roads my ride might get bad.

I want to keep 185/65 R 14 as yours mainly due to better GC.

I agree we donot have much options for 14inch alloys and 15 inches have some of the best alloys. I have seen a few 15 inches lenso which are great.

Default Alloy Issue for Getz CRDI

I have just got a Getz CRDI and I have upgraded to 175/65/R14 Michellen XM1+ and alloy wheels. The alloy wheels which I have got are 6J. Is this the right size of alloy wheels as I got those when i went to change the tyres and had not done any previous research on the size of alloy wheels. Now my question is have i done a mistake and if yes, what all will be impacted by a 6J instead of a 5.5J as a standard fitment. Any thoughts??

nottobesaid,

First of all 5J is the recommended width for 175mm tyre and max is 5.5J
IMO, 6J will reduce the ride quality and will also increase the risk of a tyre burst in case of going over a big pothole at high speeds.
If possible try to get the tyres exchanged to 185mm tyres and mount them on your alloys to be on a safer side.

Guys,

I have 195/60 R14 on my Kencha-The Getz CRDI-VGT.
After more than 1 year of experience with another getz CRDi in the family which has 185, I truly believe that 185/60 R14 is best size for this car.

195 is slightly overkill which slightly reduces your pick up and mileage.
185 is the most optimum upsize which does the job of 195 without sacrficing pick up and mileage.

Purely my view.

cheers
Anju

Djay/Anju...thanks for the inputs guys..

Actually I wanted to be in sync with the orginal spec 175/64/R14 so that there is no negative impact on any of the parameters, be it ride, FE, steering response etc.

Now since it orginally came with 5.5J steel rims, I might have to move back the alloys to the same size instead of 6J (though not sure how much I have to pay in damages to the alloy dealer). Actually I am noticing a little bumpier ride at slow speeds and I am attributing it to this shift from 5.5J to 6J.

Or is the Getz Crdi a bumpier ride anyway for all the users??

Also will 185/65/R14 not be a better fit as GC is also important on Indian roads, specially as this will be used as a family car...

Gurus, any other thoughts on this topics?

Cheers

Actually even I am planning to change tires from 175/65/R14. Thinking of Michellin XM1+ or Tuaranza from Bridgestone - but the majority of posts in threads tend to prefer XM1+
for comfort and Bridgestone for ruggedness .. what would u advise ..

Also, the side sticker on the quarter glass has a code M5 : Does it mean that the rims are 5J or 5.5 J - bocs i guess if i were to change to 185/65/R14 then the recommended width is 5.5 J but for 185/60/R14 it is 5J.
