      Right decision or not, depends on what your expectations are from the tyres. CEAT milaze have good tyre life and that's about it. Nothing else.

      Hello Everyone,
      This is my 1st post in the GH forum
      I own a Ford Figo EXI 2012 Diesel model and the car is still going good with many issues including the failed injectors. Despite, many issues I am still not done with it and hoping to keep it for few more years. As you all know that EXI had come with steel rims of 14 inches. Many times I feel steering is a bit heavy for city drive, so started looking for the solutions online. Why online? because the FASS guys were unable to provide proper reasons for the same. I had scoured almost every thread related to Figo in Gearheads forum in the last few months (in fact years!).

      Upgrading alloys for Figo has specifically caught my attentions and then started hunting for more and more information on how alloys can help me to solve OR improve my issue. To begin with, I understood that Alloys are lighter in weight than Steel rims. It helps in better steering handling and all. Ok. Now, the search begins to looks for how much exact difference in the weight of steels and alloys for same size and specs. I couldn't find the result. So, I visited a roadside tyrewala, and asked him to help in measuring the weight on the OEM steel rim. We decided to take out the spare wheel from the boot, which was not used for more that 600 kms in last 6 years. That was used when one of the tyres got a bulge (Good year GT3). Below is the actual weight of the steel rims weighed using the digital machine which I have been using for the travel. It gives almost accurate readings with +/- 100gms.

      I hope below information will also help to someone looking for actual info.

      Weight of the steel rim with Tyres on with 32 psi pressure is 14 Kgs
      Weight of the Steel rims only is 6.6 Kgs


      Now, I am really not sure if I get alloys with lighter than this one under budget. If not then probably I will stick to steels.

      After much deliberation and information lookout, somehow I had decided to upgrade the wheels and tyres both. Will keep the car for few more years. Tyres are Continental CC5 185/65/R14 and wheels are NEOWHEELS spider model.

      I just requested dealer to provide right size wheel. Told him that I may want to put little wider tyres in future and should fit well. I also visited the godown in person.
