for m800,alto,zen,wagon r

M800,


stock =145/70r13

possible upsize==155/65r12,165/60r12




alto

stock =145/80 r12

upsizes

145/70r13,155/65r13 with 5j rim


for zen


OE tire=145/80r12 for mpfi(4j rim) ,and
145/70r13 (4j rim)for carb zens/carbon and steel


possible upsizes without any mods to the suspensions

155/65r13 with 5j rim
165/60r13 with 5j rim


anything wider will touch the body.any wider rim will also cause even the stock tires to touch or foul.


wagon r

stock==145/70r13 ,155/65r13(vxi)

upsize =165/60r13 not sure though

195/55r14,185/60r14(same od)
also have seen a 195/50r15 (perfect od as OE tires) in a friend's Viva.superb looks ,handling but slightly bad ride.

185/60r14 should be the best of both worlds

Thanks.But these are perfect i feel.The ride quality and handling is good.
A few of my friends have 215/45/17 on their Lancers and IMO,they are really uncomfortable to drive on.
