Hi,

haven't got the actual invoice yet, it will be close to 16K.

I know its a tough expensive when compared to imported, i was offered league @ 14K and Plati @ 13K but I refused.

Thanks
Rajiv

Will 175/60-13 be the right upsize for a santro

@ kpzen & iraghava - for a non PS santro running on 155/70R13 now, what might be the issues faced while putting new tyres of the size 175/60R13. i am aware the correct upsize would be 165/65 R13, but for the wider upsize (175/60 R13) i know that there will be a slight compromise in ride comfort and a tighter steering can be expected. any other major problems?

I don't think there would be any major problems. But, 175 should be run on alloys, stock rims are not wide enough for that size & make sure you get the offset of the rims right so it doesn't rub with the arches.

@iraghava- i think you did not see the part that it is a non PS santro. I am already running on 5.5 J rims. Will the steering become extremely stiff to drive?thanks a lot in advance

After great difficulty was able to find yokohama A539's in chennai. Got them fixed yesterday (175/60/R13). Will post before and after pics soon. The ride is completely different. Maybe because i was running on stock tyres.
