Are there any better options?

Also, the stock alloys have done close to a 100k kms now. They're in good shape and doesn't look like there are any bends or cracks. Is it recommended to change them?

Does anyone here use 16" or 17" wheels on the fiesta?
How does the 195 section tyres affect the FE? My car is 1.6 duractec though running on second set of stock tyres. She's going to get new alloys and tyres soon and don't want to stick to stock.

The 1.6S comes with 195 section as stock, so I can't really comment on how it affects the FE compared to others. I get ~9kmpl in Bangalore bumper to bumper traffic and 12-14kmpl on highways. AC is always on.

This is the rear left tyre on my Fiesta. I am looking to change tyres at 100000 kms on the odo. The odo is now at 96000 kms. My question is whether i can be doing another 4000 kms with frequent 100 kmph runs with the tyres in this state? I drive pretty hard, corner sharp and close gaps swiftly.

The other tyres are also in a similar state with many micro cuts and few that are 1 to 2 cms long. However, hardly 5 punctures in the entire set of 5 tyres over 4 years.

The tyres are Apollo, 4 years and 46000 kms old.

Look forward to your inputs.

Why risk your life? The condition of tyres is bad. Go for immediate change. Running more Kms on these can cost more than any money saved or time value of savings. Please change for your own sake.
