I was driving on a real smooth road.
The tyres are near end of life, and tread depth is minimal now(40K+ done). This was the first puncture.

I want to know what is the ideal upsize for Indica. I have the standard tubeless fitted currently, but want to fit the 175/65 R13 tyres on the standard rims. The tyres that I am talking about are the same one that I use in my Esteem. Will these tyre fit in my car easily.

Esteem comes with 175/70-13 or 155/80-13.
It has never come with 175/65-13...Infact u'lll find it hard to get a tire in this size.

Yes you are right rajesh, I am talking about the 175/70 -13 only. Actually I have sold of my esteem and is fitted with a brand new tyres 175/70 -13 Michelin XM1 and want to remove them so that I can fit it on my indica. SO i was asking if it would be possible to fit the esteem tyres to indica and indica's tyres to esteem.

no u cant fix them. esteem tyres would be too tall for the indica.
u can sell those to any esteem/accent/corsa owner later.

165/65 is the indica size.
So you can go to 185/60 or 195/55. I would suggest the former.
BTW my indica runs Apollo accelere's now

Potenza GIII lasted 45000kms
Apollo costed me 9600 for the set of 4 (185/60 R13). The tire is very lightweight as compared to bridgestone, and is not as noisy(expected since its not a V tread)

Yes in comparison to symmetrical non uni-directional tires they are noisier.
