Default Re: Tyres for Hyundai Verna - Edit: Review of Yoko C.Drive

As of today my car's ODO reads 50815. Its time to put new tyres. Just 2mm of thread left. After reading all the posts (almost) related to Verna's tyre in tbhp, now I am thoroughly confused

Here is what I have and what I do:
1. Verna CRDi 2008 (march) model
2. 14 x 5J steel wheel
3. Bridgestone B250 tyre (tubeless)
4. Tyre size 175/70 R14
5. I do 5 tyre rotation every 5000km
6. Almost 50% city driving and 50% highway driving
7. Driving on rough roads. Sidewall took lot of brushing against rocks, footpath, corner of concrete slabs etc.

Here is what I have in mind:
1. Option to keep the 14 x 5J steel wheels
2. Tyre size would be either 175/70 R14 OR 185/65 R14
3. As I do 5 tyre rotation every 5000km, unidirectional tyre is not an option

I am not able to make up my mind on:
1. Whether to go for alloy wheel
2. If alloy wheel, then which brand, model, number of spokes. Donít have any idea on these. Will it be Lenso?
3. Which brand and model of tyre.

After using Bridgestone B250 for 50000kms, I donít mind putting the same model again. I am a bit inclined towards Yokohama C-Drive. But I need suggestion on better option.

Also suggest me whether an upsize of 195/65/R14 is advisable. In that case I have to change the rims.

My budget is on a lower to moderate range. Please help me choose a correct tyre for me. Also suggest me Team-BHP recommended tyre and wheel store in Bangalore.

Hi,

I have 2008 model Verna. The car is going to complete 45K km. Its a CRDI version with standard steel rims. Now I am looking for tyre change (set of 4) and do not plan to go for Alloys and would like to stick to the stock steel rims.

Could you please suggest the new tyres and size that could fit into the OEM steel rims, yet provide better comfort and grip without any issue with handling / road dynamics.

Cheers

I am on my second set of tyres on my Verna and will be replacing them this month end. My first Tyres were Michelin XM1, and now I am currently on XM1+. Will most likely change to XM2. The size I went for 195/60 on my stock rims. Have been comfortable, happy with the grip it provides especially on wet. They are noisy though.

Greetings Everyone,

I have recently got Yokohana A-drives for my 2008 1.4 D Verna. The size of the tyres is: 190-70-R14

I got 4 tyres for 16500 with wheel balancing and Alignment.

The previous tyre size used was 185-65-R14.

Now my question is, did I make the correct decision by going for the upsize as my driving is mainly between Delhi - Dhramshala.
Last 3 Km to my house in my village has no roads.

I did a lot of research on the internet on the same but unfortunately all this was done post getting the tyres ��.

Im no expert but what I understood by reading various expert opinions on internet nd Team BHP is that this is not a good size to install in old verna.

Will really appreciate if you can give your views and things I need to keep in mind while using this size on the old verna (2008) as I have already got them.
The tyre dealer insisted me on getting these and I foolishly got them installed.

Though 10 years old diesel cars are ban in New Delhi but I plan to drive my car for atleast 3-4 years as I dont drive the car in the City nd prefer cabs/autos/metros. The car is superb nd gives my an avg of 17km/l and still touches 150 on a good bright sunny day �� but I believe this all will now change with the uodation to 190-70-R14

I'm using the stock steel rims.

Tx
regards. Usr

Hi USR
195/70 is not the right size for Verna. Its too tall. Its a rare size and I assume the dealer has pushed off his stock.
Since you have already got it, do you face tire scrapping while full turn in front or with full load at the back ?

Hi KPzen,

Thanks for your reply. I have just taken 1 trip till now with the new tires and only time it scraps is on a bump when you are cruising above 80 KM/h or hit the bump with certain speed.
Also interestingly my car used to vowel post 110 KMH but now it touched 140KMH without vovling...it was very smooth.

But I can surely feel the difference in breaking. The ABS acts funny sometimes

I understand the size is wrong, should I get them exchanged or should I carry on with these.

I am sure you meant 1.5 D as old Verna had the new (then) U series diesel engines. As kpzen has pointed 195/70 is too tall a size as there is close to 40 mm increase in height due to 10% increase in size. My car is in 4th set of tyres and still going strong...
