Default Tubeless Tyres For Getz CRDI

Hello,

My name is Balaji and I have recently joined this forum. I currently drive a Hyundai Accent GLE. I have now decided to buy the Getz CRDI after taking a test drive yesterday. It has an awesome engine, looking forward to own one soon.

I want to fit it with tubeless tyres and 14 inch alloys. I read many posts here about various options and would like some recommendation to suit my usage. So please suggest options based on my requirements and constraints. As you know the stock car has 175/65 R14 tyres.

1. Usage - Mainly in the city and occasionaly on the highway.

2. Fuel efficiency - Very important, so any modifications should not bring it down considerably.

3. Ride quality - No compromise here. I do not want to feel the bumps on the roads in Chennai because of very low profile tyres. I changed the tyres for my Accent from stock 175/70 R13 to 195/60 R14 and now I am able to feel that the ride has become very harsh.

4. Handling - Although I like to rev the car on empty roads, I am not going to take a sharp turn at high speeds. I noticed that the steering on my Accent has become tight, so don't want the same with Getz.

5. Pete's Box - I might go for one in the future.

So, with these points in mind, please suggest the right tyre size and brand for the car.

Thanks,
Balaji

congrats on your new buy..A safe upgrade will be 195s..but why do you want wider tyres? As per your #4, your driving style indicates that you may not require wider tyres..

anyways..thats my opinion.. BTW what color is your car and how much did it cost ON road?

You are welcome to join us in our C-TBHP meets that happen!

Thanks for your suggestions. You are right, I am not going to drive hard most of the time, except on higways. So can I go for 185/65 R14 Michelin XM1+? Which brand of Alloys should I fit with these tyres?

hey balaji,I am using Yokohama S-Drive 195/50/R15 and 15"inch League rims,the ride is better and gives good driving pleasure and comfortable,there is no difference i noticed in the feul efficency after the upzise of the tyres,and the tyres do not foul with the wheel arches even if its loaded with 5people,so,if you plan to Upsize your ride's rim this might help..cheers

Ramie

Hi Ramie, 195/50/R15 sounds cool. What is the average FE in the city? With such low profile tyres, do you feel the bumps on the road?

That is a wrong size.

You can either go for 185/60 R14 or 195/60 R14. If ride quality is important stick to the current size or 185/60 R14.

My petrol getz GLX is running on stock size, 175/65 R14, and I intend to change to 185/60 R14, Michelin XM1+ as ride quality is very important for me.

The alloys I find good as per reviews are Lenso, OZ and HR. I am running on OEM alloys.

Please keep me updated on your choice and feedback. All the Best!!

I beleive ride quality will improve in 195/60 compared to stock ones because of higher sidewall rubber.

Yes u are right. Ride quality will only improve but will show more speedo error than 185/60-14.

Will the steering maneuverability get affected much with 195/60?
At slow speeds, 175/65 itself is little hard.

Any issues with putting 195/60 on 5.5j rims?
I find that the recommended size for 195/60 is 6j where as my rims are 5.5j.

Steering will be pretty ok with 195's and will be more hard with 205.
I did not find anyproblem while driving a Getz with 195's.

You can comfortably mount 195/60 on 5.5J.
6J would be a better option if you can buy them.

5.5j would be fine for 195/60-14...
Even Elantra stock alloys are 5.5j with 195 tyres..
