@samurai: these are the tyre sizes available with the dealer,.. i'll ask him for the 195/60/R14, otherwise, i'll have to find someone who can recaliberate my speedo.

wht kind of accuracy can i get by recalliberating my speedo? is it advisable??

Dude,

I suggest you go for 195/60 R14 max. Anything more than this will be too much and would require suspension modifications.

I have League alloys and Michelin Pilot Precedas on my Baleno.

Here you go...pics of the alloys on my ride....

Threads merged. No point having two active threads talking about the same thing.

I don't think that's legal.

Tell the dealer you want 195/60R14 which is the most popular upsize among Baleno owners in Team-BHP, including yours truely. Any higher, needs suspension work.
If he doesn't have it, buy somewhere else.

Also make sure the alloy specs are as follows:
pcd= 100,
offset= 35-38
Rim width= 6 inch

Experts opinion please....

What are the tyre options for Baleno with any impact on performance/stability.

165/80 R13
185/65 R14
and what else?

What is the correlation between the tyres and the FE. Some quantitative approximation would be helpful.

Usually FE goes down with wider rubber, more road contact, more friction, but better handling, better grip. If you are very FE conscious, stick with stock wheels. If you don't drive above 120Kms, stick with stock wheels.

T-BHP's most famous Baleno (Iceman's SuperBaleno) didn't have strut brace, he told me it isn't necessary. My Baleno was modded under his supervision. You are having wheelspins under what conditions? I have never experienced wheelspins in my 195/60R14 yokohamas. 205 means 15 inch wheels, you will need suspension rework.

stock wheels - actually lxi comes with 165 and vxi comes with 185....i suppose both will be considered stock wheels right.

in this case, what do you is the FE difference? is it like 0.5 kmpl or 1.0 kmpl difference

@samurai: i usually experience wheelspins when i floor the pedal in 1st gear, after the clutch is fully released... But i guess its because i have barely 25% tread left on those tyres... anyways i'll go in for the 195s.. thanks...

If you are referring to that rockfordtyres website, I don't think you should follow the specs from that website. Those are for UK baleno which has a different stock tyre than India and therefore the speedo is calibrated differently. While upgrading the Indian baleno, you should calculate based on Indian stock tyre. Use the tyre size calculator to achieve minimum deviation in speedo.

Hey Balenopower,

samurai is right, the reason i posted the website link was just for the source of definition from where i picked it up [copyright issue you see ] BTW i dont know what does that site contain.

please go by the experts advise....the Samurai.
