Is there any difference between Ikon Flair, SXI, ZXI, etc. as far as selecting tyres are concern. I am asking this because when I go to http://www.auraalloywheels.com/, they have different specification for Flair and SXI. For that matter are the wheel wells different in different Ikon models?

The SXI model mentioned on the Aura site is actually for Ikon 1.6 which came with 14'' wheel. So its different from the Flair model wheel which is 13''

Tubeless tires anyday. Nitrogen is recommended in case you dont want to check the air pressure every now and then. Tire temperature will be relatively cooler too.

Same here. My Ikon 1.6 comes in 13". But I'm thinking it can take 14" without problem. I thought newer 1.3 flair comes in 14". If thats the case, I don't see why 1.6 cannot take the bigger wheel. However this is just a common sense guess.
