Default Re: Tire Upgrade for Getz 185/70/R13

I have upgraded my stock tyre (155/70/R13) to 175/70/R13. As per my knowledge this is the best size for the stock iron wheel. If you want to change the stock rim to alloy then its fine for 185 sizes.

But the car is such a small engine and its already pathetic on low end torque. Further wide tyre more than 175 size will affect the power of the car.

Note :- My Car is Getz Prime GLE 1.1 . I choose Michelin 175/70/R13 on stock rims.

As Kalinga mentioned, 175 70 R13 is the best upgrade for you. Few points to note

If you stock wheels are in good condition and rust free, go for tubeless without tube
- Michelin XM2 should be near 4400
- Yokohama A drives should be near 4000 (Guess this comes with 5 year warranty)
- Michelin XM1 should be near 4200. However these are old and avoidable.

Note,all above tyres are imported. Ensure you get the 2012 makes.

If your stock rims are not in the best shape and rusty, you can go with tubeless tyres with tube, but I would suggest going for a tube type tyre. Here the choices are

- Bridgestone (recommended) and Goodyear (AVOID) and Apollo (not sure)

Also, if you going for 2 tyres only, then ensure you go for the same size. Put them in front and move the good used ones to rear.

Yokohama 155/70/R13 A drives will be about 3300.

Thanks @KALINGA, dipen,

I was thinking of putting wider tires at the rear so if I go for 175 70 R13 Bridgestones, what are the options and prices ??

Does A Drives come in 175 70 R13 and what would be the price?

Please stick to same tyre sizes for all 4 wheels.

The prices mentioned in my above post were for 175 70 R13 tubeless.

- Michelin XM1 should be near 4200. However these are old and avoidable.

AFAIK the stock size of GetZ Prime GLE 1.1 is 155/80/R13
But this size may vary for GVS Petrol and CRDi model.

Stock size mentioned as 155/70-13 on this thread, hence my question.

As far as i know,
GVS and GLE came with 155/80-13
GLS came with 170/70-13
CRDi came with 175/65-14

Yes KPZEN, You are absolutely correct.
The stock tyre of GLE is not good for such a big hatch.
BTW I drove around 40K KM with the stock one. It came with GOODYEAR tyre.
I have changed them to Michelin (175/70/R13) at 40K KM.
Now I am very happy with the performance of the tyre (Less Body roll / Good breaking power / no tyre noise etc.). Till now I drove around 7K KM. Now my ODO is around 48K KM. Even did not notice any power drop with the upgradation.

Changed all 4 tires to A Drives(175/70/13). Bought them from Delhi for Rs.3850 each with 5 years warranty. Done 5k km's so far and am very happy with the performance. Thanks dipen, KALINGA and everyone for the advice.

A Getz CRDi with 175/65/R14 (my friend's car which has clocked 40000 kms) requires tyre change. Since he is planning to retain the car for another 3 years or so, he is also planning to change the wheels from steel rim to alloys. What I would like to know is:

a) If the alloy size can be made R-15...

b) If advisable or not, if the tyre size can be increased to 185/60-65...

c) If alloys are purchased from outside (and not from Hyundai) it will be cheaper...

d) What would be the best brands of alloys, and where can we buy them in Hyderabad...

Since I have little information about alloys as accessories, I would request members in the forum to advise me.

Vipin.

Upsizing the rims from 14" to 15" is not going to be an issue as long as you select the correct tyres.

The current size is 175/65/r14, so you essentially have a total diameter of 46.935 cm for each wheel.
(17.5 X 0.65) + (14 X 2.54)= 46.935cm

so if you consider 185/60/R15
the total diameter will be (18.5 X 0.6) + (15 X 2.54) = 49.2cm
the difference is about 5% increase in diameter of the wheel.

So by increasing the diameter of the tyre the car will have a higher speedometer error and loss in power (acceleration) to a small extent but the top speed of the car will increase to a marginal extent too.
But calculations apart, the clearance of the new size tyre needs to be checked in the wheel well if it touches any suspension components or the fender lining at full lock turns.

To answer your question about what brand alloy wheels to buy, I'd suggest you to take a drive with your friend to the nearest tyre showrom and check out the alloy wheels there, they will definitely be cheaper than Hyundai alloys and most big tyre shops sell new alloy wheels. Take their opinions as they do this day in and day out and might have some pointers for you, but dont take their word blindly and make a purchase. They are trying to sell their stuff and most of them try to get the most out of the deal, so ask many questions.

Yes, you can change to 14" or 15" based on preference. 14" will offer slightly more comfort, all other things being equal.

The car has 235 Nm of torque - by all means go and upsize to a minimum of 185, and safely to 195/205 also! Petrol Getzs are recommended to stay at 185/195 for best performance.

Absolutely yes - please stay away from Hyundai - they often have a smaller selection of alloys and will charge a premium over specialist shops, while offering no benefit in return.

I was in this delima 3 years back when I wanted to change the stock (13 inch) for my GETZ. I rounded on to 14" which has zero fouling and a barely little speedometer error (I found this out in Dakshin Dare rally where my odo was not counting same as the Trip meter). I run 14 inch - 215 wide cobra tires from Cooper.
