195/60R14 Advan Neovas are also available in the market now easily. Another option for the 14 inchers.

They're available from 14" onwards now but are quite expensive.

Easily is a bit much. There is currently one set in Bangalore, and each would set you back a shade under Rs 6,000. For a slight increase, you could actually buy competition tyres.

Guys I need your advice really quick.

I plan to change the tyres of my car and need to know what is the best tyre available which will not reduce the ground clerance of the car. Car is Baleno - 185/65 R14 (Stock tyres are goodyear NCT). Kindly suggest tyres which are performance oriented and does not sacrifice the ground clearance. I don't mind upsizing upto 2 if it does not foil with the tyres.

Regards,
Kailash

I have stock alloys in my car and its now time to change the tyres. Hence I am looking for a good tires for my baleno.

The question asked is should I upgrade to 195/60 14 and if yes will it reduce the ground clearance of the car. If I should not upgrade then which tyre should I go for, Potenza, Sdrive. Kindly suggest.

If there is any other option available with the upgrade i.and which would not reduce the GC, kinldy suggest that too.

Guys I wanted to know what is the ideal price for Potenza GIII (Made in India). I had been to one of the company showroom today and they at first told me the tire would cost me 3650 per tyre. I bargained a bit and the final quote that I got from them was 13000k for 4 tires along with wheel balancing and alignment. Let me know if that is good deal. I also asked him for Yokohama tyres, but he said don't buy yokos as you will not get any warranty for those tires. (tyre size that I am talking about is 185/65 R14)

Default Baleno Tyre

Hi Guys,

I have some research on the car tyre and have come to a conclusion that If I up-size to any tyres I would loose ground clearance except on the tyre

205/60 R14. This will give me exactly the same ground clearance as the stock tyre.

The current tyre circumference is 1872.7mm and with the above mentioned tyre size it would mean 1889.98mm. This will also mean that difference between the current and the new circumference would be 0.92%. Kindly let me know if what I am saying is right. Do you guys think that there would be a problem by this upgrade. ???

Please give me this information at the earliest as I plan to change the tyres tomorrow in the day.

Regards,
Kailash

The difference in circumference of ~17mm means a difference of ~5mm in terms of tire diameters - honestly, you could do worse by running different pressures !

And, 0.92% is almost stock when it comes to up-sizing (the accepted limit is 3%) - you're well within limits here. Although, isn't 205 a tad too wide ? Ensure you have no "rubbing" under load, & over bumps...
