How many kilometers would the i20 stock appollo acceleres expected to run, with bangalore city driving conditions? I am just thinking of picking up a set of used tires run for 12K.

Hey guys,

I've got a 2010 i20 Petrol. My idea was to never change the size of alloys or for that matter even move from OEM alloys to after market ones after cracking 2 15" alloys on Calcutta roads on my Lancer.

After keeping the car for about 17 odd months I'm now gradually intending to start bits and pieces of modifications to keep me interested in the car and not dispose it off.

I've just got 3cm lower H&R springs which I intend to fit later this month (yes, I know I have to be a lot more careful) and now I'm also looking for alloys and tires. I will not dispose the stock alloys or tyres, I shall keep them and I also intend to finish approximately 30k clicks before putting in the new alloys.

My qs are:
1) How easy or difficult is it to source tyres for 16/17 inch alloys ?
2) I've tried to google whether black or white colour alloys would suite a white i20 the best but failed to find.

I'm tempted to acquire the alloys in Black as shown in the attached image.

Your comments would be appreciated.

Best,
Indra

I will be facing a tyre change soon for my i20 CRDi and I did an enquiry with the local tyreshop - a decent one that, which left me a bit confused.

- I have 175/70R14 as stock- Apollo Aceleres. ( CRDi Magnas were given this as stock, others 185 at some point of time I guess )

- I have no intention of upgrading the rim size as of now. no alloy too. I just want a change of tyres, and I somehow dont like the road noise the Apollos are giving. Oh and yes I think 175 is perhaps a tad thin for the i20.

- I did my bit of research around in TBHP tyre threads and I am favouring a Bridgestone ER60 with 185 width.

- At the tyreshop, they confirmed that 185/65R14 is the stock size for i20 . They immediately suggested B250 as a replacement. I asked him about ER60 - he checked the spec list and told me that ER60 isnt available at that size.

- He tells me that B250 is significantly better than the Acelere which I am not very sure. Anyways I thanked him and came back home.

- Did a check in the Bridgestone website and what he said is true. No ER60 listed for 185/65R14.

Now I have to make a choice. Do I go for the B250 or push for an increase in SW height ( as someone mentioned earlier in the thread ) - 185/70R14 ( ER60 is available at this size) . This change will increase the diameter by 2.28 percent going by the tyre size calculator I used. Is this an ok size for i20?

I am not very comfortable going below 60 aspect ratio as I keep hearing about drop in ride quality.

Any thoughts? or any alternate brands? I just want a good, hopefully more silent tyre that offers good grip and has reasonable life. ideally 185 - or more if there is no other option .

If you want lesser tyre noise, bridgestone is a wrong tyre to look at. You should look for Michelin or Yokohama. You can upgrade to 185/65 or 185/70 no problem.many people have done that upsize without any problem. If you want to stick with bridgstone then turanza er60 is the most silent among bridgestone tyres..

Would a 14" 100+108 pcd 8 hole ET 38 alloy be fine for the i20? The dealer tells me its not an issue

Specifically this model
