XM1+ is my choice. He can also try the Continental EcoContact3.

Second would be A drive. Third would be either Conti or Turanza.

Tanveer,
Can u tell us the reason behind such an upgrade. ?

IMO u should just get a good set of tires in 175/70-13..

Avoid Potenza GIIIs, rest of the tires u have mentioned are all good. Choose as per your budget and size availability.

Prajesh, thanks first of all. My friend wishes to go for 14" just for having big wheels, he considers 13" too small. His dad will drive from South Delhi's good roads to narrow lanes of Old Delhi, and I suggested him to stick to 13" as they shall give a more comfortable ride but failed to convince. You know as we call in Hindi, Fitoor Char gaya hai.

He upgraded from 13" 155 tyre to 13" 175 while booking the car and now will exchange them for 14". Even I can't understand his ways, so apologies for not providing any concrete reason behind such an upgrade.

Point taken. Me and my friend will be checking out the tyres today. I hope he finalizes soon without much damage to his brains.

Default Re: Right tire upsize for Hyundai Getz

Will a 15" yokohama 205 60 r15 be free of fouling for my GETZ? any experience?
i know of the speedo errors and the inc weight and more foot print et al, which is not of my real concern!

Default Re: Right tire upsize for Hyundai Getz

Hey gopa99, I am back on TBHP after a pretty long break and this is my first post!!

I own a Getz Prime 1.3GLS which runs on 195/60/R14. I have been contemplating upsizing to 15" from a long time but after reading bad feedbacks of the same from experience users like djay, phoenix, etc about the 205/R15 on Getz, I wouldn't really go for that if I were you!!
I guess Getz has a HPS column and if I were to suggest you an upgrade, would suggest 195/50/R15 or in case speedo error doesn't concern you much, 195/55/R15 at the most.
Hope this helps.

205/60-15 will scrape with wheel well.

I had 195/55 R15 S.Drives in my Getz CRDi - here's my take. If you are not bothered about ride comfort, and want hugging-the-road handling and implicit braking, get them. You WILL lose comfort and each undulation on the road will be felt in the steering and the seat.

I am not back to 185/65 in 14" with C.Drives - they are good balance between performance and comfort.

@gopa99, 205/60 in 15" will foul like Prajesh has said. If you want to go 15", go with 205/50 R15 or 195/155 R15 - both wont. But read what I have said about ride comfort vs. handling before you decide

215/60/R14 is horribly disproportionate and would most defenitely foul with the wheel well gopa99.

Considering that you could care less about the speedo error, I would personally suggest you to go with 205/60/R14 which is surely available. However, I am not sure if this would as well foul with the wheel well,..need an expert/second opinion on the same!!

Am I missing something??

I dont think 205/60 R14 will foul *BUT* that depends on the alloy's offset. If it is a Getz Petrol, wont it slow down the car terribly? Even the Getz Diesel felt slow(er) in 195/55 R15 compared to 185/65 R14.

Default Tire Upgrade for Getz 185/70/R13

Hi Friends,

I am looking to upgrade the rear tires in our Getz Prime 1.1 (Current size 155/70/R13) to 185/70/R13. The front tires are 155/70/R13 and are in good condition so not changing them now.

Bridgestone G3's are very expensive i got a quote for Rs.5000/piece from a local dealer in Kannur and I cannot afford them at the moment.

So please advise me about the other cheaper and better options available in 185/70/R13 as am not very knowledgeable when it come to tires.

Appreciate your help.

Note: I will be buying them from Delhi.
