Default Baleno(altura) tyre query, Urgent help

Maruti seems to be doing many things wrong, First it seemed they had scraped our car against something, they repaired it then they did a few more insane things but coming to the point I now have ceat spider 180/70r13 and one spare bridgestone 165/70R13. When I submitted the car it had all five bridgestones but not in the best of shapes. These tyres seem new except the bridgestone one but the sizes are bigger. Should I keep them or speak to maruti about it?
There's also a slight cut on one of them, I'll attach a picture in a bit Thankyou

Of course you should speak with them about this !! If they've swiped your tyres the least you can do is give them hell for it !!

Ordinarily I would but in this case my bridgestone tires were nearing end of their life and these ones seem new.
Is 180/70 r 13 a correct size for the baleno ?

No way!! They are playing with your life here! Give them hell. You never know what sort of conditions these Ceat tyres were used in They may be bad tyres. They sure are veruy very old tyres which would have gone hard and may be ready to crack.

I say give them hell. Dont take it lying down. It's better if you have to spend money and get some new tyres, but it's better. Dont trust the service centre people.

185/70r13 is a good option for your car. I would agree with Nikhil, The spider's will probabaly be real old.

What you could probably do is, use this situation as an advantage. If you know for a fact that the spiders are in better condition than your bridgestone tyres then contact a local retail outlet and ask for a quote on your spiders.

I am sure they'll be a lot of old tyre dealers who would prefer the 185 spider's over the 165 bridgesone's. If you get a good price then replace your existing tyres with new ones.

PS: check the manufacturing date of the tyre as well. It will be printed on the sidewall of the tyre
