@ Nikhil
I am unable to find out an alloy with 4.5J for my WagonR vxi (blue eyed). Depending on the suggestions of the tyre shop guy I took 14" 5.5 J alloys.He was also suggesting to upgrade to 175/65 R14 tyre though I didn't do that.
Now I want to know that 5.5J will create problem or not and what will be the right size of the tyre for WR?
Regards.

Hi Tyre Gurus,

I have a similar question here. Your advice would be highly appreciated.
Currently my Wagon-R Lxi runs on 145/80 R13 and use this car mostly on weekend drives.
I would like the width be upgraded to 165 by retaining the rim size of 13" so that I need not compromise on ride quality.
What profile can suit well here? Also, does having 165 mm width causes any issues w.r.t. brushing against the car parts?

165 is a bit big. I suggest you stick to 155/65-13. No guarantees can be given for bigger tyres.

Thanks Nikhil. But wouldn't 155/65-13 reduce the GC compared stock size of 145/80 -13?

Reading through the posts, I found that earlier wagon r lxi used to come with 145/70 R13, for which 155/65 R13 was an ideal upsize without much change in the overall dia. However, I own a 2014 wagon r lxi with 145/80 R13 and upsizing to 155/65 R13 results in 16mm reduction of GC which I feel is substantical difference. Is there any other better upsize retaining the 13" stock rims?
