Default XETA Tyre & Alloys

Guys,

Recommend the best tubeless I can get for the XETA.

My amazers are still going good, But I intend replacing them at 40000 KM which will be any time soon.

I don't want a Odo error and I hate tyres jutting out of the car frame.

Current set is 165/65 R 13 Amazer.

What is the best upsize- No Loss, better grip and handling.

I'm happy with my G3 on the lancer, but I understand that they are not imported anymore.

Dealer suggested Turanza ER300.

Good deal, then I might replace all 5, otherwise budget might restrict me to 4.

Also going for New set of Alloy Rims- Best size.

You might want to check out the apollo acelere offer. they give good discounts if you buy both tyres and alloys.

if you get 14 inchers

1. you'll get odo error unless you swap your speedo setup with the indigo/indica turbo's
2. heavier steering
3. better handling and stability at higher speeds
4. drop in acceleration and torque ( will affect you severely since petrols have lesser bottom end torque, CNG makes it even worse, and if your engine is a 1.2, dont even think about it )

Allright R13 it is..!

Tyre recommendations!

Fortunately, My XETA is a 1.4 and top of the line in terms of accelaration and handling.

No issues whatsoever on CNG Performance.
