oK..here are the options for the Baleno...dont know if these sizes are available in the India market. Figures in brackets are the rim width ranges (in inches) advisable for that size

1. 13" Rims : 165/80 R 13 (4.5-6), 185/70 R 13 (5-6.5), 195/65 R 13 (5.5-7)
2. 14" Rims : 185/65 R 14 (5-6.5) (My choice and advice), 195/60 R 14 (5.5-7) , 205/55 R 14 (5.5-7)
3. 15" Rims : 195/55 R 15 (5.5-7) , 205/50 R 15 (5.5-7)

working fine for the past three years on my Fiat uno...that too where three of the rims got bent due to potholes and had to be hammered back in shape...
What do you say then to Ford/Honda/Skoda who keep dishing out tubeless tyres on pressed steel disc wheels.....and what about all the westers countries where pretty much every tyre is tubeless but most of the rims are not alloys

I would say stick to the 13 inchers. After all Baleno for all these years has ridden on 13 inchers. It's only now that the Vxi has 14 inch alloys. Go for Michelin 185/70 R 13. The tyres look awesome and the ride quality is something to write home about. You won't regret it.

shadyrules,

175 tyre size will reduce the height of the car and negatively impact the ground clearance. Hence, your baleno is getting bottomed-out. Try & get the 185/70R13 put, you will be better-off. Got them on mine, not bottoming-out even at full-load. (Touch wood)

Even with the stock 165 tyres on my Baleno Lxi, the car scrapes, if the bump is not taken properly. A couple of ways to prevent this scraping are (1) Taking the bumps at an angle (traffic permitting) so that at any given time, there is only 1 tire on the bump.
(2) Another better/safer way is to brake to a near-stop at the bump, release the brakes and then take it slowly, real slowly.

Then stick to 13" 185/70 n get good set of rubbers it will serve the purpose well than 15"....

Yup . 15" might be a little too much for the baleno. If you are not satisfied with the 13" go with 14". Look at 185/70, the height of the car will not reduce. Look at Pirelli, the tyres look awesome and have amazing cornering grip.

Shady, i suggest u cross the speedbump at a 45 degree angle which would help from bottoming-out.

About the tyre upsizes,call me.I'll help u out with exactly what u need.

Hi,
One question:- is there a drop in pickup/ engine response with wider tyres ... what has been your experience with 205/60 R 14 ES100?
Cheers

I got Pirelli P2000 185/70 R 13 Tubeless. traded the stock tyres when they were new for these ones for 2,800/-. They look awesome & have great grip while cornering. Would strongly recommend them. Mileage I am getting after my first service is about 11.4.
