Default tyre & alloy specs

@ Jango

Congrats on new set of wheels!

Tyres: What's upgrade size you opted for? Is it 175/70 R13 or 175/60 R13? It's not clear from your posts & pictures.

Alloys: Is it 13x5J or something else?

OOps my mistake its Rays . Wellwest i could have paid a little bit extra as there are not many alloys stores in kottayam, so who ever sells would probably sell it with a higher margin as they don't face any competition.

Let's know your experience after good amount of driving (500-1000 Kms). Need feedback on following points.

Ride & handling on normal & rough roads
Grip at corners
Do tyre touch at full turns?
Speedo & Odo re-calibration (if done) /mismatch (if not done)

Jesal,For a car with 155/80/R13 stock size, 175/65/R14 would be the appropriate 14" size.
