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.
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.
So there will be a difference of 2.5mm, which doesnt affect the ground clearence. You can upgrade to 185/70/R15
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.
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 ?

Utkrash-please go through the discussion on this same thread and also this thread and the link given there in.
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.
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.
15inch 7J rims are fine with 195/60/15 tyres.
I only wanted to confirm that will the 7j size touch the inner ceiling of the car.
Can you also tell me that are the Apollo accelor tyres good enough as my main worry is that they make too much noise and which is also an inherent problem with appolo tyres.
Also advise as to whether yokohoma tyres good enough as I looking for good comfort and good grip.
Recently I got my Dzire's tyre upgraded to Maxxis MA Z1 195/55 R15.
Is it the right upsize as the recommended one is 195/60 R15.
The dealer said that 55 is more suited coz on full load the tyre might touch the body if 60 one is used. I m really confused.
Also how good is the Maxxis brand? the thread is really awesome though.
i have a City 1.5 MT i want to upgrade to wider tyres so please Guide me..??what size should i go for..??
What a Low Profile Tyres for a city will cost me..??
And what the differnce in Comfort/FE/Wear n Tear from the Stock Tubeless ones..??

I strongly recommend that you use the tyre calculator on www.tyrestore.in to determine the technically correct upsize. Dont just go by the looks!

I am going to have the Swift VDI few days. I want to resize my tyres for wider one.Please clear my confusion of help me in making decision.If I go for MICHELIN 185/70R14 XM1+ will I have to change the rim for wider tyers or else it will fit in or else Will I have to go for alloy.If I go for 185/70R15 what will be the problem(Basically I want to upgrade for more comfort drive and performance, correct me if I am wrong.)OR I should keep the same company tyres and go for alloys (165/80/R14) for looksI asked the dealer, he told he will charge 25K for alloysHe told ZDI tyers won’t be available for VDI from company.If I go for new alloys and wider trers whats best.185/70/R14 or 185/70/R15 how much it will cost.Please suggest
Congrats for the new car. If you are on a budget. Then the best upgrade is 185/70/14 - Again Michilin XM1+ are no more into production so I am assuming that if you are getting them its a old stock. The New Michilin series XM2 is the one you should go for - They are very comfortabe and Super silent. You can also tru YOKO A drives - They are at par with XM1+(Thats what I have heard) but they may not be as silent than Michilins and would also be easy on pocket as compared to XM2.
And, If you want to go in for 15" then 195/60/15 is the best best upsize for swift - with this you will get both Comfort and looks. Personally I luv the new OEM alloys and dyeing to get them on my ride as well(I also own a new Swift D) but not at 25k.
I have been waiting for someone to Sell them off from there ZDI/ZXI so that I can get them Cheap. Anyways, I have already driven Approximately 14500kms on the stock MRF's (165/80/14) and I am quite comfortable with them too. Its just that I have a Lack of Vitamin M which is currently holding me now for a 45k purchase.
14 for ride
15 for handling (compromising FE)
Receomended is 185/70/R14,
YOKO A drive (set of 4) = 16 k (ONE YEAR back in chennai)
Aftermarket Alloys (set of 4) = ~15 K
TOTAL = ~ 30-35K
Hello Everyone,Like so many users here, I am also getting tyres changeed for my Swift Dzire VDI. The original fitted ones are JK tyres (165/80/R14). I have already clocked 66k for my vehicle with these original tyres and now they are in pretty bad shape.Queries:1. I understand that since the radial size is 14, I have to go for something with R 14 in specifications. Is that right?2. OE is 165/80. Does that mean that I should go for this size only? As Michelin does not produce anything in this this size with R 14, I am considering Bridgestone Potenza GIII. Is this a good choice?3. Can I go for bigger size say 185/70? Michelin XM2 looks a good choice, but will a bigger size affect the mileage and performance in a bad way?4. Since I have already clocked 66k, do you think I should also get the rims changed? Or do rims have a much longer life?Any help on these questions will be appreciated.Thanks!!
You can either go for 185/70 R14 on stock rims/alloys or If you want to upsize to 15' Alloys you can
go with 195/60 R15.
I am currently using 15' and there has been no drop in mileage. It gives 17KMPL in city with AC on.
