Question Correct Tyre Pressure for my Hyundai Verna SX?

I have searched a lot but couldn't find the required information. I want to know the correct tyre pressure for my Hyundai Verna SX with Tyre size 175/70/R14 and it also has alloy rims. I have heard that one needs to increase the Tyre pressure after installing alloy wheels. Is that true ? I basically have only city driving in Delhi.

No, there is no need to increase pressures after installing Alloys. Please stick to the manufacturer recommended pressures which can be found in either the user manual of the car or on the driver's door sill.

Are the tires that come stock on the petrol and diesel Verna's the same? If so, what brand and model? Are they tubeless?
What about the rim width? Can 6J rims be fitted without any issues?

What would 14" alloys in HR, Plati, Neo cost?

@manjukansal - The recommended tyre pressure for the CRDI SX (185/65 R14) is 30 psi (f & r) with single/dual passenger, and 33 psi (f & r) with full load. I usually fill 31 psi, runs like a dream with all loads.

@luvjascha - In case you're still out there loving jascha and accessing tbhp, here are the answers:

Yes. Earlier SX models came with 185/65 R14 and all non SX with 175/70 R14. Now afaik the standard tire size for all models is 185/65 R14.

Only 2 brands OEM. Bridgestone B250 and Apollo Accelere. Both tubeless and H-rated.

Stock rim size is 5.0J or 5.5J for 175's and 185's respectively.

I'm sorry, stock rim size is 5.5J for 185/65 R14. My mistake.
