I'll answer this question a little later.

Michelin Pilot Preceda is the only V-Rated tyre in this size. Everything else is mostly H rated.

Well now this is the real question: Do you want Ride Comfort/Tyre Life or V-Rated tyres? Because you can't have both.

Either, you can get performance tyres like the Michelin PP1 which is V-Rated. But the ride comfort won't be as nice as the Michelin Energy XM1 which is H-Rated. So your call on that. The options available to you are:

Bridgestone Potenza GIII H-Rated
Bridgestone Turanza ER60 H-Rated
Michelin Energy XM1 H-Rated
Michelin Pilot Preceda V-Rated

Out of these the Turanza & Energy's are comfort biased tyres whereas the Preceda & Potenza's are performance biased tyres.

Just for FYI though H rated tyres will also do just fine as they are rated up to 210 kmph which is more than the top speed of your car in stock form. V Rated is definitely better but not really necessary.

WT - He has the 1.6 which has 14" wheels & tyres as standard. Pray, how will you fit 185/70 R13's on those?

I tend to disagree with you guys for a bit. The Palio 1.2 goes really sluggish with 195/60/R14 tyres. Anything around 175 - 185 should be better.

Payam, your car's sluggish nature is more so because of the choice of tyres.

Arrey MF, at least read the thread carefully before replying yaar! Look at FerrariRulez query (quoted below for easy reference) and also note that he has a 1.6

couple of questions -
1. Which is better upsize option?
2. Which tyre is the best option - Bridgestone Potenza G3 or Michellin
3. R these tyres V-rated?

I'm willing to sacrifice a little bit of handling and grip for better ride comfort and tyre life.

Default Tyre Upsize for Palio Stile SLX

Hi Guys,

I am expecting my Palio SLX to be delivered next week. Here is the tyre upsize I have in mind:

AURA E01455 5.5 x 14" PCD 98 alloys;
Michelin Enery XM1 185/65/r14 tubeless

Is this upsize good? Any recommendations welcome.

I called Prakash of Super TyreTec and here is the quote:
Rs. 17500 for the alloys - set of 5
Rs. 10500 for the tyres - set of 5

The tyre prices are after exchange of my stock GoodYear 165/80/r13.

Is this a good deal?

I also intend to upgrade the headlamps to Philips Vision Plus H4 bulbs. Can someone please tell me what is the OE headlamps on the SLX?

Thanks in advance,
Cheers,

Rajan

Nice choice of Alloys & tyres!

Do check out the prices at Sai Iyengar Tyres, his rates are better compared to Super Tyretec.
