He is particular about R15 as somebody recommended him the following.

195/60 R15

What is the best options for him. Also he wants to change to Bridgestone to some other better brands. (As per his words)
Very good buy back price for the BS.
195/65/15 will be 2.4% more in circumference than OE. better would be 195/60/15 just 0.7% less than OE.
VFM tyre is Yoko A drives or Apollo acceleres. For a more comfy ride at a higher price point Michelin XM1+

Default Tyre change/upgrade for New Dzire

Hey Guys,

I am buying Dzire ZDi this week. The car comes with 185/65/R15 Good Year (DuraPlus I think) tyres. I have had bad experience with good year in the past. In my previous car at around 40K KM all the GY tyres had uneven bulges.
I feel 185 is wide enough for the car of this power & do want to decrease FE by going for a size wider.
185/65/R15 seems to be an uncommon size & the only options I found are:

1. Michelin XM2
2. Bridgestone B250

Are there any other better options in this size?

MRF ZLO, Bridgestone Potenza/Turanza,Yokohama A/C/S/Earth does not have this size.

I like XM2, but I feel that get punctured a tad too easily.
Changing the tyre to XM2 will cost me 2100 a piece while B250 will cost 1800 a piece.

Is spending about 8400 really required/worth it? Or should I drive my original tyres for 30-35K KMs & then go in for a change. Maybe by then(in 2 years) I will have some other options as well?

My drive would be 50 percent in city & 50 percent on highways (all kinds, with good tarmac as well as with no tarmac at all).

Mods: I did not find any thread for DZire tyre change. Merge this thread if I missed one.

BS B250 are hard compound tyres and are meant for high mileage and not for grip/comfort.

That leaves you with only one option XM2, while XM2 appears to be a very good tyre, I am not sure about side wall strength. On Michelin's website, it says something about ironflex technology, but I am not sure about its real life performance when it comes to bad roads.

If you upsize to 195/60/R15 you will have more options.

You seem really practical and that's why I would suggest upsizing to 195/60R15. The change in mileage will not be noticeable. The benefits will be better grip and cornering abilities. Plus you will not have to limit your options to two tyres that you are not sure about.

Make the upsize and go for Yokohama Earth tyres

I too was tempted to go for 195/60. But then upsizing to 195/60 will also lead to a decrease in ground clearance of about 6.5mm (correct me if I am wrong), which I don't want. As I aspire to drive this car around the country a lot, I do not want to reduce the GC at all.

I would suggest you to continue driving with the stock tyres and change only if they are really required. Treat your previous experience with Good Year as an incident in isolation and not all Good Year tyres are bad.

My personal views: Why spend money when there is no immediate requirement or a safety related issue. The car manufacturer must have done quality checks at their end before using these tyres as stock tyres.

So, please continue using these tyres and have miles and miles of happy driving.

Default Re: Tyre change/upgrade for New Dzire

There are better tyres brands and my comments are specific to regular goodyear vs goodyear duraplus. I also had goodyear on my previous car and they were too soft and prone to punctures. I had to change 2 of them in between. Goodyear DuraPlus seems to be a little harder than the regular goodyears, though I agree that 'harder' is NOT essentially better. After driving 12,000 kms on DuraPlus, I have not had a single puncture so far. Braking is decent though tyre noise is on the higher side. They sure are harder and noisier. Harder would also mean less grippy, but they probably will last better than goodyear regulars. I drive around the worst kind of roads, especially on a yearly trip to Mangalore on the worst roads, and I find the tyres to suit my requirements as I don't drive at high speeds.

Regards,

Pradeep

Would 195/65/R15 fit into the wheel well of new Dzire?
Should I go for this size or will that not be a good idea?

It fits in the wheel well of the swift, it should fit on the Dzire too.

There are few people running 195/60/R15 on the forum and they didn't report any issues.

195/60/R15 I know is the most common upgrade from 185/65/R15 without any issues. Maybe the decrease in GC is just a figure on paper w/o any practical difference.
But I wanted an opinion for 195/65/R15 as well.

My bad, I didn't read the post carefully, I am not sure about this 195/65/R15 profile.

It may touch the wheel well when turning under load (> = 3 persons)

Hey!

Sorry for posting here. I was planning to get in alloys for my Dzire Ldi. Was wondering if I could go in for 16 or 17 inches? If this is OK, can you guys tell me if it would be a direct fit And how will the handling be altered post the change?

A friend of mine is due to change his tyres of his dzire vdi from 165 /80 /14 to 185/70/14. Would this cause any drop in mileage? He is also looking for good tyres which can last him around 50k Kms since he travels a lot. Which would be a good set of tyres which would last, without affecting the safety aspect?
