Default 13" tyres on 14" alloys

hi friends i have a query that can 13" tyres be fitted on 14" alloys . i am asking this dumb question because yesterday i say a zen whose alloys seem to be bigger so i looked at there tyres there it was written r13. can this be possible that small dia tyres fitted on bigger alloys or this was due to some specific design of alloys that looked bigger.

Yes it can be easily done. Just take a knife and carve out a portion of the tire from the inner area. Keep on cutting till the desired fit is obtained! Simple na?

The alloys were probably designed to look bigger. If there is no lip on the alloy then it will look bigger. It is not at all possible to fit 13" tyres on 14" alloys or vice versa. The tyre and alloy have to be same.
