Default Tyre size availability

Guys,

Are either Michelin XM1s or Yokohama A.drives available in 165/65 R13?

The vehicle I am looking at, comes stock with 165/65 R13 radial, tube-type tyres. I wish to exchange them for tubeless ones - either XM1s or A.drives.

Thanks

Both XM1 and A drives are available in that size.

Looks like you are talking of a Santro. Else, it helps if you can specify which car.

Check this thread : http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/tyre-a...es-santro.html (Upgrading wheels/tyres on Santro)

Santro comes with 155/70/R13 as stock tires. It has to be the Indica or Indica Xeta he's talking of.

He's talking about an Indica Xeta & yes you can swap your stock tyres for XM1's or A.Drives.

Ishan's right. The vehicle I'm talking about is the TATA Indica XETA 1.4L GLX

I understand that both, the XM1's and A.Drive's are fine tyres; however, which between the two is preferred, considering ride comfort, handling, durability, road noise (don't know how much of a difference this makes considering that I always drive with the A/C on), etc.

What would the cost and warranty period be on each of these.

Thanks.

Energy XM1 would cost you about RS.2,400/ tyre warranty I guess is about 3 years. Not too sure on this though.

Thanks Wasava!

Any idea on the A.Drive's?

Also, how much would alloys of League, Prestige, HR and Plati in size 13 x 4.5J cost me?

Thanks

Prices would depend on what area and dealer you're buying from bro. I suggest you go to a couple of shops and check out. Just watch out for fake HR alloys. You can make them out easily from the finish and the tacky silver sticker.
