Default Suggestions on tyres for my getz?

hey guys, the time has come for me to get rid of the crappy goodyears on my getz. right now they are the stock tyres which size is 175/70 r13. since this car is not going to be kept for more than a year or so investing in new rims etc doesnt make sense.

id like to get slightly wider tyres in 185/70 r13 or 185/65 r13.

what i want -

the best performance tyre available in those sizes and also please provide me with the approx cost.

thanks alot.

I suggest don't change tyres since you will sell it in 1 year time, If you really want to change tyres then think about 14 inch tyres should give you best grip or I think 185/65 R13 seems better upgrade in 13 inch.

Regards,

Ravi.

175/70-13 Michelin XM1+ or Yokohama A drive would be the best option in 13".
185/65-13 will only have limited tyre options.

I would suggest you to upgrade your getz tyre to 195/50R15 you will feel your ride very grippy and and comfortable and even the cornering will also improve,under no circumstances it will foul with the wheel arc's.consider it

Edit:Yokohama S-Drives,you'll love it.

Ramie.
Please read the requirements mentioned by Akshay. He's not planning to keep this car for more than a year.
Spending 30k for wheels now won't be a good idea.

I would consider spending 16k-30k worth tyres even if i wanted to use the car for myself for another 1year fullfilling all my dreams,and for another car it might be new dreams for sure.
