Ideally having spare regular valves in car is good, as the Puncture guys quote exorbitantly, Rs 175 in my case. Also I have 4 tube tire to be made tubeless so was looking around. I also did enter a physical store and he quoted me Rs 80 for one regular valve. And promised Rs 60 if I buy 4. He also mentioned that the same piece will also go for 150 to a needy traveler. So there is no uniformity or a base rate.

Default Strange Upsize with tubeless tyre for @ 1-1.5 month.

Mods, please feel free to move this post to the deserving thread as I am not able to find one.

We have Indigo XL Grand Dicor that has tyre size 175/65R14 (Tubeless). The car has OE Alloys.
As some active bhpians might be knowing that I will be selling this car and buying i20 Elite, I have a query with the current Tyres at the Front.
The Outer treads (one inch from both edges) on both sides of the tyres have become smooth (ala when the car is run under-inflated). My father is against of replacing the tyres with new ones as we will be selling the car.
My query is- Can I fit 185/65R14 tyres for temporary purpose (till I sell the Indigo and get Elite- may be 3-5KKms in this 1-1.5 month usage)?

Background of the 185/65R14 tyres- My brother had replaced the tyres of his 1st gen i20 and kept the old tyres at the backyard of our factory. They bore Sun and Rain for may be 1-1.5 years. The tyres have more than 50% tread left on them. I would not be speeding over 80-90kph if need be over these tyres.
Do you guys recommend this? I know it sounds like .

Default 25K Tyre Leak ; Swift 2007

Hi,

Recently, I have noticed that the rear left tyre on my swift leaks air slowly.

The tyres are original stock tyres, run 25 K, in last 7 years.

Initially, I was thinking that i didn't fill the air in that particular tyre at the filling station. But in the last few days, I have to visit the station daily to fill it up.

Sometimes, air leaks 50%, sometimes, its 30%. I generally fill air at 31 PSI for all my tyres.

Can anyone let me know what could be the issue with the tyre ?

Do I need to change the tyre ? Or should I change all four tyres ?

Tyres are tubeless and have no issues till date.

Could it be a valve issue ?

Any place in East Bangalore to check it out ? Or should I visit the authorised service center only ?

Daily running is around 25 km currently

Awaiting your inputs

Mods : Can you merge the query with existing one if any. Thanks a ton

Could be punctures or a valve issue. Get it checked at a reliable puncture repair shop. They will dip it in water to determine source of the leak.

7-year-old tyres are best discarded, whatever distance they may have run. My personal limit for any tyre is 5 years, irrespective of the extent of wear.

SS-Traveller, If I have to discard the tyres, which one would be the best bet for the rim size ?

Should I change only 1 tyre or all 5 tyres ?

On change my tyre, the reviews on the following tyres appear to be good.

Or should I go for another brand ?

Does Indiranagar work? If so, I'd recommend Sai Iyengar Tyres on Double Road, near its intersection with 12th Main.

I was exactly in the same situation a few months back. In my case, since I fill nitrogen every time I was surprised all the more with the rapid loss in tyre pressure. This was the phenomenon in almost 3 of my tyres. Eventually, found the culprit to be the valve and as a precautionary measure replaced valves on all my tyres and the difference is very much evident.

Before you try any other option, I would strongly recommend the above.

You better get the tyres changed as its already 7years and do change all the tyres if they are also of same age.

You never know what to expect after such long period.

Can understand your sentiment. Will definitely explore the choice after changing the valves.

Culprit appears to be a nail in the tyre. Got it rectified. But will change the valves as a precautionary measure.

Changing tyres is always an option, but the dough required and the brand of tyres is holding me back.
