the stock alloy and tyre size is 5.5 J x 14 / Tubeless 175/65 R14

is there anything like if i change the tyres under particular kms i will get more cash on the stock tyres ?
and i how much i can expect on the stock tyres ??

Thanks,
Rahul
buy back will depend on the brand

BS around 2200
GY around 1600
under 150 km you can get good price.

Lots of advice on the choice of tyre on the forum. Search around and you'll find them. You have to ask yourself the basic question - comfort or performance.

As for the size, I'd suggest 195/60/14. Very little speedo error, plus it's a good blend of looks (read: wide) and performance. Many choices in this size. Go any wider, and you will compromise on FE and performance.
Your 5.5J rims will hold these tyres, though 6-6.6J is ideal.

The newer the tyres, the better the buy-back price. I got full value on mine when I exchanged my new Santro tyres for wider ones.

Speedo error - a touch over 1%. There is a calculator and some additional info on this page:
Car Bibles : The Wheel and Tyre Bible Page 2 of 2

Brands - The popular ones are Michelin, Bridgestone, Yokohama and (for some) Goodyear. As I said, go through some of the other threads... reviews, pros & cons and suggestions on brands and specific products are there in plenty.

1. Michelin PP2
2. Michelin Energy XM1
3. Apollo Acelere

All three have minimum road road noise.
PP2s would be the best performer of the lot and the costliest at around 4.2k per tyre.
Apollo Aceleres are the best VFM tyre @ 3k per tyre.
Michelin Energy XM1 has good ride comfort and decent performance @ 3.4k per tyre..

As per warranty policy any modification done on car within warranty period, warranty will get seized

Dear Mr. Sharma,
Thank you for your interest in Palio Stile. We would like to clarify that we would not be able to give you warranty if you fit wider tyres.
Please feel free to write to us in case of any other query,

Warm regards,
Jaldeep Virani.

Any crap, no manufacturer (except BMW) voids warranty if you fit in wider tires. You should be friendly with your dealer, he may be able to help you.

No way. Any external modification will not affect the warranty. Clarify with the dealer whether he is mentioning about the warranty on the alloys/tires.

Only modifications to the engine makes the warranty null and void.
