Consider Michelin,MRF zv2k,And apollo accelere...

Avoid JK's,Bridgestone and Goodyear...They are noisy...

Idealy What company has provided you is the best...Since you want to choose an alloy for you as well,from my perspective a 15 inch alloy is good to fit in...

Ideal upsize would be- 195/60/R15

And just in case you stick to stocks -185/70/R14

Do have a look at my vast collection of "Hottest Indian Cars with Alloys"[Album]

which also has couple of Swift pics,Do let me know if it really helped you in any way[The Album]

Hi

185/70R14 is the ideak size for swift vdi

195 makes sense when u go for 195/60R15 in 15 inch

Energy XM1+
MICHELIN Energy XM1+ offers more value for money: it lasts 25% longer1 and saves fuel.
Dimension Load index Speed index Specification Price
185/70R14 88 H   4100

Good choice of tyres...

Even S drives are good but the wear and tear is more and they look older sooner than you can expect...[besides not meant for indian roads]

Do post your pics once you get hold of them...

But i guess price quote is on towards the higher side considering 3500 for a tyre size 175/70 R15 [hope thats the size for the OHC] which a friend of mine purchased a week back...

Recently I bought a set of Pirelli p4000 tyres for my honda city zx 14". Unfortunately I do not see anyone mentioning this brand in any post on tyres...

...did I do a mistake?

No buddy you are perhaps on the top of the list...

We are average users,

They are as good as Michelins,or i would say michelins are close to Pirellis...

Can you mention for how much did you get hold of them...?

Stick with 14inch size 5.5j and tyre 185/70. If you upsize more ud get wrong speedometer, may affect fuel average & Suspension

Hi i missed your earlier post regarding alloys upgrade to 15 inch,in that case your tyres will be useless because when you upsizing to 15 inch the Diameter of the wheel increases which is not a good thing to do,the same tyres might not even fit in due to size of the new rim as well,Your bigger diameter might not fit in the Wheel well as well,

I dont think you wish to purchase another tyre if you looking for 15 inch new rim...?

Isnt it...

Hi,

Just have a doubt related to this. I am planning to buy Dzire Vxi. I would like to upsize from std JK tyre Tornado 165/80 R14 to Michelin 185/70 R14 XM1+.

The stock tyres come with wheel caps. Can I use the same wheel caps on the new Michelin tyres or will they become redundant in Michelin tyres? Why I ask is I would not like to spend on alloys right away. May be will do it after an year or so.

Your ground clearance will decrease owing to 70 profile you have chosen over 80.

Keeping the same rims,You will be able to put the wheel caps you are talking about.Innocent

Murali,

165/80/R14 -> TyreWidth/Sidewall/Radius

165/80 -> means 165mm width, 80 means 80% of tyre width (so, sidewall is 132mm).

185/70 -> means 185mm width, 70 means 70% of tyre widht (so, sidewall is 129.5mm)

So there will be a difference of 2.5mm, which doesnt affect the ground clearence. You can upgrade to 185/70/R15 without having any issues. Its the perfect upsize for you car.

XM1+ is very good choice.

Murali wants to upgrade to a wider but same wheel size(14").

Restating whats already put forward. There wont be any GC issues and the stock wheel caps will fit just fine with the wider tyre.

Infact the ZXi and the ZDi comes with the 185 section tyres as stock.

Hi Binoy,

Nice to hear from you. Was actually waiting for your inputs. Just one query regarding the tyre size. Why is it that Swift/ Dzire have a wider tyre profile viz. 185/70 for Zxi and Zdi whereas for the Lxi and Vxi the stock tyres are 165/80. Is it bcoz of the alloy wheels that a wider tyre profile of 185/70 is fitted whereas for the other 2 variants since they only have wheel caps the stock tyres are 165/80 R14 ?

Also, just to reconfirm in case I go with 185/70 XM1+, will it affect the mileage of my Vxi ?

Hi all,

I am very soon buying a swift vdi and I have planned to change the tryes and rims.

I am puting 15" Lenso Samuria Series as the Rims. But I am confused between tyres having specification as 195/55/15 and 195/60/15. I want to know that how much will the Feul Efficiency go down if i Put 195/55/15 when compared to the stock 165/85/14.Futher I am not able to decide between Bridgestone potenza gIII and michellin Primacy as i want good comfort and good performance.

Please advice.

Thanks

Abhishek

15" Lenso Samurai Rims are good choice. The perfect up-size for tyre is 195/60/R15, 195/55/R15 is not recommended size for Swift, and it may damage car suspension and it results in showing wrong readings on your speedometer. But if you take that risk, it makes your car looks evenmore sexier.

Fuel efficiency depends on your driving, wider tyres affects mileage to very minimal (0.5KMpL)

Bridgestone potenza gIII - Performance tyres, Road Grip, good Looks, but it might effect mileage and produces more road noise and less life compared to others.

Michelin Primacy LC - Very good rubber, less road noise, Doesn't effect mileage.

When you upgrade your tyres dont forget to get the warranty and check the air pressure.

Last week I have upgraded my White-Swift-Vxi with 15"-Koing-BlkAlloys -195/60/R15-PrimacyLC. Now car looks stunning.

I went to tyre vendor again and he suggested me oppolo accellor. He says that one tyre would cost me around 3k and whereas the GIII and primacy would cost around 3.7K.He further said that Primacy would cost around 4.5K with the warranty.

Please advise as to accellor are good enough for the 195/60/15 configuration on a swift vdi.

Can someone comfirm the prices. Also will the warranty would get void if I put 15" rims.

The Allow wheel vendor says that Samurai SC 08 comes only in 15 7j size whereas the recomended size is 15 6.5j. So what is concerning me is that will size rim fit in Maruti Swift with a 195/60/15 tyre specification.
