Thank you for your info. I did contact a famous dealer here in Bangalore called Madhus. He urged me to mix brands on the same patch. I'm reluctant as I do not want my tyres to wear out unevenly. Those darned shop guys!

Will the 185/60 R14 fit on stock rims/alloys properly? Stock size is well 20mm less than 185mm width and hence the question.

Another question. While delivering the car dealers are least interested in stock tyres. In case I want to upgrade at the time of purchase or delivery what is the right way to deal with stock tyres? If I change them outside I still need to drive to the shop and the stocks will be used for some kilometers. Will these tyre shops buy these a little used tyres as exchange? What is the usual rate they offer?

I've been offered ₹2,900 per tire if I bring it straight from the showroom to my regular tire vendor. I'm swapping them out for the Yokohama Earth 1 185/60 R14 tires, based on the recommendations here. The Yokohamas are available for ₹4,200 on Amazon.

If I go with tyre upgrade by exchanging the tyres at the time of care delivery from the dealer himself, will it void the car's warranty? I checked it at Advaith Hyundai, Bangalore and they said they will buy back the stocks at 2500/- each.

Does a 185 width tire cause a major mileage/performance drop in petrol Grand i10? Also any positives in getting alloys from the current steel ones i have? I like the Alloys in the top end Asta version but Hyundai sells them for a pretty steep price so anywhere to source them cheaper?

What are the best replacement options in the stock size? (165/65r14)



The car is quite stable at legal high speeds and I have never felt a need for "more grip".

I am using Xcent S(O) bought on Jan 2015. Stock tyres are Apollo Amazer 3G 165/65 R14.
My car completed 23900 km only and I observed some cracks and lots of thread wear. Recently few punctures also observed. I got tyres inspected from trusted tyre shop, and he suggests tyre change. I always do wheel alignment and balancing after every 5000 km.
Anybody face such abnormal wear or such a less life of tyres?
Also, please suggest me tyre brand which can provide good life. Tyre shops suggests bridgestone 165/70 R14.

Hello, a fellow Xcent S(O) user here. Your tyres, if due for change, are due to age and not kilometers run. Rubber ages and becomes hard with time, so tyres have to be changed after few years even if their mileage is low. Some photos of your tyres can help BHPians to comment on their condition. My tyres (July 2015, 22000 km) which has same tyres as yours, are also showing signs of ageing and I guess will need replacement soon. I do feel they should have lasted longer than 4 years.

You can go through posts in this thread for choice of tyre size and brand

175/65 R14 is the best option from your list.

BUMP

Is earth 1 a good option in stock size?

On the topic of up-size, I was advised by the tire dealer for 175/65 instead of 185/60. Reason was that contact patch reduces for 185/60 on stock rims (2014 diamond cuts) for the tyre is wider than the rim.
However, I have been under the impression than one can always upsize 20mm without changing rims?

175/65 is not the correct upsize, it's more than 2%.

I have upgraded my Grand i10's tyres to 175/65 R14 and they are doing great.

Do I need to upgrade the spare tyre (165/65 R14) also or it will work in emergency for 20-30 kms?

Reaching out for a bit of advice.

I own a 2014 Grand i10 Sportz Petrol running OE 165/65 R14 Goodyear tyres. The car has done barely 36,000 kilometers in 6 years, but owing to Bangalore's treacherous roads, I suffered a sidewall crack as a result of which one of the tyres is completely unusable.

Given that the car has completed 6 years, it makes sense to change all tyres rather than just one. I'm not looking to upsize the tyres, and it is unlikely that the car will see more than 15 kilometers of city driving every day for the rest of its life.

So, I'm not looking to spend too much on tyres (sub INR 3000 per tyre types). I have received a quote of a set of 5 JK Tyres for 2800 odd each from my neighborhood tyre store. The next cheaper variety are Chinese tyres that I don't intend to go for. Should I just go ahead with these? What other options do I have?

Thanks in advance. Sorry about the long post.

Update to my previous post. Turns out the JK Tyre quote was for 155/80 size tyres. JK was out of contention altogether. I received a quote for 165/65 R14 (OE Size) Apollo Amazer 3G Maxx tyres for INR 3000 each.
I decided to go ahead and bite the bullet because they seemed to the most value for money option. Extremely early days, but the car definitely feels a lot smoother and a touch quieter. Overall, I mentally feel a lot safer because even though my car has run only 36,000 kilometers and I don't do high-speed runs, the OE Goodyears were 6 years old, which is almost end of life for car tyres.

I have Upgraded My Xcents Stock Tyres (Apollo 3G Max 165/65 R14) to Ceat Milaze X3 175/65 R14.

The new set seems to be doing good for short runs in and around the city , Yet to test it on a long journey.

Costed me INR 4575/- for each tyre inclusive of Balancing + Alignment + Labour charges.

This upgrade should atleast help the poor ground clearance of 165mm to be increased by around 6mm, may not be much of a increase but it should definitely help in rural roads.
