by the way - OT - what is the condition of ur stock tyires now - at 30k running ? is it worn out..? or does it still have some life in them..

u might get some money for it in exchange so that could help in stretching ur budget by another 200-500 per piece..

when i sold my old tires in my OHC at around 55k , it still had maybe another 5-7k left in it..and i got Rs500 per wheel+tire..

Default Tyres for 2008 idsi NHC Zx

Hi,

I will be taking delivery of N(?)HC Zx i-dsi in next week. Can you guys help me in following questions

1) I am worried about the ground clearance of the car. For increasing the ground clearance of the car , can I replace the stock tyres ( 175/65 R14 ) with 185/65R14 / 185/70R14 ?

The car comes with stock alloy wheels which I am not planning to change.

2) Will this replacement void my warranty for the car?

For 185/65R14 I got exchange quote of ~8k for current stock tyres. (MICHELIN Energy XM1+)

3) Is this a good deal?

1. 185/65-14 should be fine but 185/70-14 will be too tall for NHC.
i-Dsi comes with alloys??

3. looks like a good deal..please post the break up of the deal.

What will be the maximum ground clearance after installing 185/65-14, is there any formula to check this
i-Dsi comes with alloys?? -
Yes, 10th Anniversary GXi comes with Alloy

Please check out for your stock tyres if it is Bridgestone then i think it is not a good deal.
If it is GY then may be OK.
This wll not void your warranty.

Itzzme is right about the tyres. Try to get your car with Bridgestone tyres for a better exchange deal...Goodyears won't get u much.

Yes i-dsi gxi comes default with alloys.

I will find out if it's bridgestone / Goddyear and get back.

Also is it worth putting 185/65R14 , just for the increase in ground clearance?

Means is the ~ 1 inch increase in GC for NHC is worth paying rs 8 - 10k?


Thanks in advance for your help

Default city tyre suggestions

ok my honda cvt has done 33k kms and now every pothole it goes in its feeling like its gonna fall in pieces, the ride has become horrid. the current tyre i am using on it is GY GT3, which also comes stock in innova as of now. i am using 185/65/14 spec and still its not comfy. i want a very comfortable ride as of now. should i upsize to 15 inch at all? is 185/55/15 avaiable ?

so keeping it simple which brand and what size and the prices for the same please. i would like tyres from yokohama, michilen, bridgestone and good year only. i am using nct5 on the other car and they are much better than GT3 i am never touching that series again.

For comfort stick to 14", preferably 185/60 R14 in either Michelin XM1, Yokohama A-Drive or Apollo Accelere.
