Which brand offers 185/65 R13 tyres? I want them on my Getz as i don't wish to change the existing alloys on my 175/70 R13 stock tyres. Please respond

get 185/70 r13. thats what i got in bridgestone potenza g3s. the ride is a little better than stock but the grip is much better. also theres quite a bit of road noise. if comfort is what you want get michelin xm1s.

Yes you can use 5J alloy wheels and mount 185/70 R13 tyres there would not be any issues. It is though on the boarder line hence you would find the sidewall flexing more often and thereby affecting car handling slightly.

hey, I drive a Hyundai Getz, 2004 GLS version, which clocked 50,000kms a few days ago, I had got my wheel alignment and balancing done a couple of weeks ago, but the car is pulling towards the right, and now the steering has started vibrating at any speed I drive, (I cant leave the steering even for a second) I checked the tyres but there is still decent tread left on them but the alignment guy suggested replacement of the tyres 2weeks back itself when there were minor vibrations at the speed of 20, and disappeared at a higher speed). This is probably a stupid question but I got headers(only) not the entire exhaust installed the previous weekend. Would that have anything to do with the vibration?
so my doubts now are
what could be the problem? Do i really need to change the tyres?
If yes, What could be a correct upsize, If i'm not mistaken, 175/70/R13 is the size of the stock tyres, I don't want to increase the diameter of the rims, but wouldn't mind wider tubeless tyres
my main usage: Well within the city, 4kms where in i take the car up to 80-100kmph, no real high speed cornering as such. I'm a pretty normal slow driver otherwise, I don't redline each gear so not looking for any great performance really.
My priorities being Ride quality, and life of the tyre.
Thanks in advance
Cheers
