Default Tyres change for Indigo Marina

Right now I have Bridgestone S322 tyres with Tubes on Steel rims. I need to change tyres. Should I go for same S322 or any other better options are available?

Its time for me to change my stock tyres. I am planning to fit in alloys and the tyres. I plan to stick to the 14" rim size. Please suggest what tyres should I go in for?

Initially had gone in for Continentals 185/65/14 but now the next change is Apollo Accelere 175/70/14. Any comments if I have chosen the right size?

um, wandernomad, you do know that the indigo stock size is 175/65 R14 right? the next upsize is 185/60 R14
EDIT: you actually bought those tyres? they are the wrong size. this just gives you a bit more sidewall and no extra tread. doesnt make sense at all. possible upside is a slightly better ride due to more sidewall, but the wrong speedo reading is not worth it, nor anything else

Speedo reading is about 3% while the diameter difference is 2.91%. The car's height has also increased though not much, but still dont you think its worth the improvement in the ride quality. Any other cons that I may be looking at with this size. 185/60 decreases the gc and makes the ride qulaity harsher and hence dont want to go below 65 at all. Other option is 185/65. Is it a better option than the current one?

Default Re: Tyre and Alloy wheel upgrade for Indigo marina

I am looking to replace our Indigo's tyres in the stock size on steel rims, 175/65 R14s. 40k on the current JK Tornados and they are..umm... not worth continuing with.
Considering that the car is almost 8 years old and sees only limited running (<4km) everyday, I wish to stick to my budget of around ~15k for a set of 4.
What are my (limited) options ? Or the only option is to increase my budget ?

How about :
- JK Vectras (have them on my Swift , 14k , not a hint of wear/tear on the treads).
- MRF ZVTS.
- Apollo Aceleres
- Bridgestone B250s (These might be expensive, called a dealer here who doesnt stock them).
- Something else. What ?
