Can I live with it now?
Are you saying you changed your stock wheels to 15" (stock wheels on the Indigo are 14") and then went on to change the tyres to 175/65 R15?
If so, I would suggest you change your tyres ASAP. The size difference between stock wheels/tyres, and the ones you have fitted right now, is well over the permitted 3% tolerance margin.

However, if the tyres you fitted are 175/65 R14, then the size is perfectly correct - it is the stock size.

Default New rubber for my 2008 INDIGO LX

HI Guys

This is my first post since getting my membership approved
I have been revving around in my brothers 2008 Indigo LX (sedan) and need your help in replacing the tyres (tubeless) on the black beauty.
The car still has its original manufacture provided tyres and i am looking to change them in mumbai.
The issue is that i live in an area where the roads still havn't been laid with tar. And it doesn't seem like the BMC plan to tar the road within next couple of years either
So there's a lot of mudding around and hence need the rubber to handle some abuse. I am looking for your advice as to which brand should i go for. The car carries 3 people, at most 4 and does monthly
about 500 kms and occasional highway runs. I am looking to spend under 20Gs on them.
Also i will be waiting until December to do the changing and my spare tyre has almost given way/ there are cracks and the edges have hardened . is it possible to put a tube in the spare tyre and keep in case of emergency/ puncture
PS: Mods please move as you fell appropriate

If you're looking for rough & tough tyres on a budget, check out Apollo Acelere. I've tried them out on a couple of review cars and have been pleasantly surprised. They're no Michelin Pilot Sports, yet very decent for rubber from an Indian brand. Good grip.
