Hi everyone. Iam getting a petrol delta Baleno delivered this week. Its a premium silver shade. Please provide your suggestions on
1. Tyre upgrade- Size and make/model
2. Alloys - Size and make/model

Please also provide your inputs on approximate price as well, i am looking at comfort and ride quality more than performance.

Guess I will stick to the stock 195/55 R 16 then.

Any other pointers?
Hey Aren't you thinking of changing just the alloys? The Baleno obviously doesn't have the juice to pull on 205's. But the alloy change wouldn't hurt, since anyways the stock alloys look plain rubbish compared to the whole car!

I am facing the same dilemma with my Zeta. The alloys look absolute rubbish and you cant even tell the difference from a distance from a cap. I have done some research on internet and there are few options which would look well with the Baleno, but since its more about a personal choice so i'll leave that to you. Below is the link from other post we have on Team-BHP where you can search for Baleno:

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/tyre-a...ur-wheels.html

No need for a tire upgrade, as conveyed by many BHPians. Baleno works well with 195's and anything more is just going to ruin the drivability.

If you are facing issues while getting Alloys in your city you can order online from http://www.alloywheelsindia.com/
I've heard pretty good reviews about them, you can also find praises in many forums. Take a look at Momo Revenge and HRS if you are a bit tight on budget.
Happy hunting Do post the pictures!

Just out of curiosity. Is there a difference in ground clearance for base variant and top variant?

1. Tyre upgrade- Size and make/model - as many have previously suggested, 195/60R15 Primacy 3ST 's would be my suggestion.

2. Alloys - Size and make/model - I fell these mags would look killer on the Baleno, especially in your cars color.

Cooked up a few mockups of the Baleno with some Momo alloy styles. Might help as a general reference to folks looking for alloys for the Baleno. Used an image from the T-BHP official review as a base. Hope that is okay.

All except the Momo Next are available in 100 PCD 4 hole configurations. Not advocating the Momos. It just happened to be a brand I was interested in checking out.

I know its not the ideal size but the car would be mainly used in city and would be hardly driven aggressively. The main criteria is to improve comfort

Speedo error is not an issue
Hi rikhav, did you install the tyres? Which size and model did you choose?
I am also thinking of 195/65 R15 when i change my tyres.

Hi all, this question is going to come as a surprise to usual tyre upgrade questions, but would you recommend I "downsize" my Baleno Alpha tyres?

I have booking a Baleno Alpha CVT petrol and I am expecting delivery this week. I was having the option to upgrade the space saver to 16", but decided to think out of the box. Instead of the 195/55/16, I was thinking whether it makes sense to downsize all tires to 195/60/15 and get me some good alloys to boot.

I am looking at the Michelin 3ST for low noise and high comfort (considering the stiff ride the car is supposed to have).

What do you folks think? Sensible idea, or not?

Hi Everybody! Bumping up this thread. Most of the first batch(2015 end) of Baleno owners should be due for a tyre change this year. Hence looking out for some options, I'm tired of the hardness of the stock Apollos on my Delta, would love to upgrade to 195/60 R15 Continental MC5/ Michellin P4ST for their softness and low noise and better grip.

I have the MC5 on my City and I'm pretty happy with the same. People with the P4ST, can you throw some light on how different/better it will be as compared to the MC5?

Also, 195/60 R15 will lead to a reduced ground clearance as compared to the 185/65. Has anybody faced any/ should I expect any issues with this? Thanks in advance

Hi team. Any recommendations for tyre upgrade for an alpha diesel baleno. I am only looking at 16”ers only as I have alloys in the same size which I really do not want to discard. The primary criteria for selection is ride comfort. I do not care about aesthetic looks or mileage although road noise could be the second criteria. Thanks in advance.

Hi all, wishing a happy 2021 to you and resurrecting the thread.
I own a 3.5yr old Baleno (Alpha) which has done 29k kms so far on stock Apollo Alnac 4Gs. Recently one of the tire suffered a sidewall blowout on slow speeds on rough road (inside a tiger reserve in MP). While I managed to get the tire repaired from inside but kept it as a spare. Now I'm running my car occasionally (yet 200km a week) under 80kmph on the short 15" spare wheel .

Have a few questions around the tire and potential options -
1. I am not confident on the tire repair jobs done locally but at the same time my stock tires are decent (for 1.2L engine, with higher road noise perhaps) with potentially half life left in them. So, at this juncture should I go for replacement of two tires or all four?

2. The standard size for Baleno Alpha is 195/55 R16, is it advisable to shod 195/60 R16 in order to marginally improve ride comfort (stiff Baleno suspension) and ground clearance.

3. 195/55 (or 60) R16 doesn't seem to be a popular size. So I couldn't find many options for this size (in Bhopal). I am considering Yokohama Earth or Blue earth, Apollo Alnac (not very keen) or maybe Bridgestone B250 or 290. Couldn't find anything from MRF Perfinza, however, the nearby dealer said ZVTV is available, which I think is not good.

Suggestions, Directions (to the preferred tire shops in this part) are need of the hour for me as I might have to drive back to Mumbai in Feb/Mar .

If the time for replacement is near, get all 4 tyres replaced else get two and replace.

That is 3.14% jump, not recommended.

If you stick to stock size of 195/55 R16, options are Yokohama BluEarth-AE50, Earth-1, Bridgestone B250 and B290.

If you upsize to 195/60 R16, then options are Bridgestone Turanza, Yokohama BluEarth-AE50 and Apollo Alnac 4G.

Avoid the MRF ZVTV or ZV2K variants at any cost.

Thanks @a4Anurag.
In that case I'll stick with 195/55 R16's and try to get all 4 replaced at once with probably slightly better buyback prices for 3 Apollos at half life.
Does Earth 1s have tougher sidewall vs BluEarth's?
