Default Can I replace i10's tyres and rim from santro

Hi all,

I dont what I might sound like, but I wish to upgrade my i10's wheels. My old santro sing has hankook on alloy wheels.

1. can i use those alloys and tyres straight away
2. will i10 tyres and rim fit santro xing
3. if not then can i use old alloys on i10 and get new tyres.

i hope i am clear.

the local tyrewalla refused to swap the tyres saying they are entirely different sizes.

Please help me clarify.

You can swap between the two cars. But i10 tyre size is 155/80 R13 which is too big for Santro. Not recommended. And what tyre size do you have on the Santro? If it is the correct size for Santro, it will be too small for i10.

Alloys can be swapped directly. No issues with that.

@ mishraak: Alloys from Santro Xing can be used on i10. Hankook tyres on your Santro Xing would mostly be 165/65R13, these can't be used on i10.
  • You can use stock rims (13x4B) from i10 to mount Hankook tyres and use this combination on Santro Xing. Do this only if your Hankook tyres are not broader than 165/65R13. Any tyre broader than this size would be difficult to mount on stock rims from i10.
  • Buy new tyres for i10 mostly 175/70R13 and mount those on alloy wheels from Santro xing.
