Question New Tyres and rims ... urgent

Sorry for the rush folk, but my Baleno Lxi is due on Tuesday and I have to get the rims and tyres arranged.

I've decided to go for Bridgestone GIII 185/60 on aura 14" alloys

(was planning on 195/60 but was told the wheel might foul the body)

So am I going for the right size ? or should I get the 195's ?

will returns soon to team-bhp ...busy as hell

late...but a Happy New Year to all you folk.

forgot to add - 5.5" rims or 6" - what's the way to go ? - I dont want the suspension/steering/body getting affected.

cheers

wht aura of all the alloys. they do not even have any decent design. make it look good and get league alloys of if you want indian go for NEO much better. just my 2 cents though

hmm...why don't you go for 15" wheels/Tyres? They look awesome and really improve the Baleno's dynamics.

thanks for the info guys,

yeah - i'll take it easy on the car till 1000 Km - keep it under 4000 revs and try and drive smoothly rather than my past darting and sprinting in my esteem.

jesal, I kind of liked the BF3460 in the aura series - i'll just ahve a look at the noe website

As for the tyres, I think I'll then go in for 195/60's or 55's (preferably) and 6" rims - i hope the rims wont jut out ?

The GIII's are costing me 3300 apiece - is that okay ?

hey bamboo...i think that 205/50/15 or 195/55/15 are perfect for the baleno...u dont have to do any mods on suspension and the ride of the car alos is amazin...i have 205/50/15 on my car, yokohama's and h.r. wheels...they are expensive around 5k a tyre...i think a baleno looks good with 15" not 14"

oh i forgot....the "jutting out is due to the wheel offset...which if u r buying 15" u dont have to worry they sit in flush...also the same with 14" unless the mags u have chosen are designed for a jeep or suv then they will definitely jut out, but the chances of this happening are less since veyr few jeeps and suv's use 14"...the best would be to fit one at the back since the chances of the tyre jutting out are more at the back than the front as the back bumper is notvery curvy compareed to front

15" would be a bit too expensive , besides the tyre shops and even my Maruti dealer are trying to dissuade me to shifting to 14" - they stil recommend 13" .

Now - The chap from Aura is over - he's saying that the 6" width model I chose would not fit - so would the GIII's in 195/55 on 14" / 5.5 " rims be okay ? - or should i go down to 185 because the rims arent wide enough ?

that may be ebcause the dealer does not have them.
and dont exchnage ur tires at the maruti dealer.go to some other tire shop and u will get a good deal.

the ideal upsize in 14" for ur 165/80r13 (OD=297.10) is

1. 195/60 r14 ,OD=294.8mm
2.205/60r14,OD=300.8 mm

and the rim size can be from 5.5 to 7j


anything else will give u diff.speedo readings.

thanks for the help - 15" is out due to price - I'm picking up 14"/5.5" and will get the Potenza GIII's- preferably in 195/60 or 195/55 , the car should be with us hopefully by tuesday.

We decided to go for the 04 Baleno Lxi - the 05 models could take upto a month to arrive besides would perhaps only be available in Euro III - and what I've heard is that the only diference in the Baleno is an automatic headlight adjuster (a lever so no fiddling around with screws) - and I doubt there will be an increase in perf - the EI-EII transition was pretty drastic for some cars due to going for a 16v engine along with Fuel Injection - And I doubt Maruti is going to ever increase the performance of its cars further - they just care about the cost. And the more stringent emission norms may decrease the power output ...

And I'm not waiting for a month or more to get a 05 Baleno ... and they offered us a further 10,000 discount.

thanks for all the advice.

P.S mods - I sent you a mail re : my username.......

thats because they want the E-2 models to make way for the E-3 .
the E-3 baleno will have more features.its not simply a HLL that there in an E-3 car.
Quote:
The major changes made in the vehicle are
a) Changes in the exhaust systems. Addition of a Maniverter (Catalyzer which is close to the engine exhaust - a combination of exhaust Manifold and Catalyzer)
b) Upgradation of the parts like O2 sensor, Purge valve, Canister
c) Upgradation of parts to reduce evaporative emissions.
d) Changes in the ECU to make the vehicle compliant with BSIII.
e) Addition of EGR in some vehicles to meet the norms.


also the ecm will be a 32-bit chip
i suggest u wait for the E-3 car as the resale for an E-2 will also be lesser.


and dont go for 195/55 as the change in OD will be more and so ur speedo rdg will be totally differnt.also ur ride ht will be reduced
