Default Tata Tiago - Tyre & wheel upgrade thread

Hello folks.

As my Tata Tiago clocked 32,000 kms, it was time to change the tyres. I opted for Accelera tyres : 185/55/R14. I had changed my alloys quite a while ago. The problem I was facing with stock tyres (175/65/R14) was they were rubbing against the rear wheel arch so I changed them to 185/55/R14. Just completed my trip to Himachal Pradesh and Punjab with 5 people and boot loaded with luggage. The highway was smooth, but somehow there were bumps on the road which led to rubbing of wheels and made a strong line. Please let me know what to do now.

Buy a set of suspension buffers, they are available at most of the auto parts stores, you can even find them on amazon or alibaba.

Get them installed from a local FNG. It's a 15 min job, it ensures that tyres don't rub against the fender and neither the car against a speed breaker.

They are of 2 types, first one grabs the spring and prevents full compression while the other one sits on top of the spring thereby increasing ground clearance.

The only thing is that my car will look a bit odd.

Firstly, you've chosen the wrong size. The right one would be 185/60 R14. Here's how both compare to the stock size:

You mean it was rubbing even on the stock tyre size? If so, there is a problem with your alloy wheels. They are probably too wide or sitting too close to the inside.

I had used them on my Civic. Highly recommended for cars that sag. Although not for a Tiago?? However, if OP is looking for a quick fix, yes, this might work. But I really think it's an issue with his after-market rims as even the stock tyres were scraping.

No, what you are thinking about is spacers. What Rshrey22 has recommended doesn't change the looks at all. In fact, they make the car look better under load as it doesn't sag.

That said, check your after-market rims first. IMHO, you've gotten the wrong wheels as well as tyres on your car.

Like GTO said, maybe you have chosen a wrong alloy wheel width, the stock tyre will not rub or touch any body part even under max load.

Also, the 175 section tyre is more than sufficient for the power put down by Tiago. 185 is an overkill in my opinion which will bog down the acceleration.

Stock size is 175/65 - Sidewall height = 0.65*175 = 113.75mm
New size is 185/55 - Sidewall height = 0.55*185 = 101.75mm

The difference is 10.5% which is more than double of the allowed upsize range.

For you, the best option now is the spacers as mentioned by RShrey22 above. But I suspect it will screw up with the brilliant suspension dynamics of the Tiago. A cleaner solution would be to get a 5.5inch width alloy set and mount these new tyres on those alloys.

There are several spelling & grammatical errors in your posts. This negatively affects the forum experience for other readers.

Kindly ensure that you proof-read your posts prior to submission. Also, it would be a good idea to use a spell-checker.

The stock tyre was rubbing against the wheel arch with the stock wheel? Are the stock wheel width and alloy wheel width same? If the alloy wheel is narrower than the stock wheel and you mount the stock 175 section tyre on it, it can result in it scrapping the arch.

Default Re: Tata Tiago - Tyre & wheel upgrade thread

What is the best upgrade for Tiago tyres? I am seeing this difference:

Stock 175/65 = 175 * 0.65 = 113.75mm sidewall height
Upgrade 185/65 = 185 * 0.65 = 120.25mm sidewall height
Upgrade 185/60 = 180 * 0.60 = 111.00mm sidewall height

I have Tiago NRG with 180mm GC, very much required for any roads in India and proving to be always right . Going with 185/60 will reduce the GC by 2.75mm and with 185/65 will increase by 6.5mm.
Will the increased GC by 6.5mm make the driving dynamics unstable? And will the stock rims support 185mm wide rubber or need an upgrade as well?
I think normal Tiago has GC of 170mm so ideally reducing the 180mm to 177.25mm should not cause a big impact with 185/60. What do you guys think?

My Tiago is up for new set of wheels and I would be getting replacement today. Any recommendations on Tyre brands? I would like to keep stock size - 175/65R14. Stock Goodyear lasted for 55k but I am not happy with their performance, lots of punctures, side wall bulges etc.

Note to Mods: Not sure if this is the right post for query, kindly move to appropriate thread if required. Thanks.

Got Yokohama Earth 1, stock size, January manufacturing. Dealer was trying to push 185/65/14 to my wife (oversize and older manufacturing). She couldn't find Blue Earth and I didn't want to trouble her anymore
Thanks a lot.

Hi ast.ggn,

Would you please share your valuable inputs about the Earth 1. How's their performance and road noise as compared to the stock ones. What was the price of the tyres? Would really appreciate your inputs!.

Thanks and Regards,
Pranav

Hi, tyres have run 10k till now and no punctures. Road noise is better (as compared to used Goodyear, can be a difference of used vs new). Total price was approx 16~16.5k for all 4 (including alignment and balancing). Little early to say about long term review but so far it has been positive.

Did you source those Alloys from Amazon? I've been looking at them from quite sometime for my Hyundai Santro (13" inches) The current tyre size is 165/70, the ride quality is great. Will these be a direct fit? 5.5J is good for 165, so found these Alloys relevant. On Amazon each Alloy is priced at Rs.3,390 with the name "SS Alloys"
How's the Quality? Will there be any difference in the ride quality?
Couldn't find a better or relevant thread, so had to post this here. Please move it if there is a relevant thread, thanks
