Long term update:
  • KMs: 14k
  • Time: 17 months
I have an update about the FE figure I stated earlier in January.
A brake-jam on the left rear wheel was identified and solved recently, which has brought the FE back to the 14-15 kmpl range.
It seems that this brake-jam caused the drop in FE to the 12-13 range.


So, the effect of the wider tyres on the FE now seems to be in the ~1 kmpl range. Which is totally a good thing

Default Re: Chevy Beat : Tyre & wheel upgrade thread

Hi Folks,

I drive a Chevy Beat TCDi, Aug. 2012 model. I have clocked 47000 kms. Time to change all 4 tyres. I intend to upgrade to 175/65 R14 from 165/65 R14.

I had been to Premji Tyre Shop, Mahim, Mumbai. He has given me an option of Goodyear tyres. From my current set of worn out tyres, he has offered me a buy back of INR 1200 for all 4 tyres put together.

Hence the final offer for a set of 4 Good year tyres he has offered is INR 15,500/-
Is it a good deal or should i consider a different brand?

I upgraded to 175/65 R14 Michelin XM2s on my Beat TCDi and i have had a great experience with them. Have completed more than 50k on the Michelins and they still have life. Please consider them if they fit your budget (I had paid about 4.8k per tyre 2+ years ago).
