      Help for Ford Figo Tyre Replacement

      Hi All

      I want to change tyre of my ford figo car. Its already crossed 49000 KM with its stock tyre "MRF ZV2K 175/65 R14"

      Please advise best tyre with low tyre noise. If i upgrade to 185/65 R14, what are the merits / demerits, or should stick with stock size tyre.

      I shortlisted Yokohama & Apollo Amazer 4G Life.

      Waiting for replies.

      Best Regards // Darshan

      I agree, you can even try 205/50/R15 if you want more looks and heavy handling, especially if you want to zip past every corner you drive; however warning you that the car will take a hit on initial acceleration and top end speed.

      Evolution88; rightly pointed out and I totally agree.

      However I just love the way the car handles the corners and to add the excellent braking aspect which comes with the 205 spec tyre. I have used this spec in my previous car (Ikon TDCI) and it was a boon to the main weak link (breaks).

      Currently running 195 50 R15 tyres on my Figo and the main thing I noticed is at almost all sane speeds, the car stops at my will; however always have to keep a close watch on the guys who is tailgating since the chances of them shoving into you is very high, in fact had couple of instances where this happened as well (bikers mainly).

      From my perspective, it is just too good and I can definitely live with the drop in speed any day vs the handling and safety that additional width of 20 mm provides. Again it is totally up to one to decide as to what suits them and what not, just my two cents...

      Happy Holidays

      I am currently on 195/60 S drives after a stint on the 185/65 Earth 1's, for a stock car I think 185/65 is the best choice as it gives better ground clearance and also better ride.
      I don't know about angels, but it's fear that gives men wings.

      batterylow; are you running 195 60 R14 or R15 inch tyres? If it is 14'' rims then the aspect and ratio works out fine with an overall variation of 1.2% (7mm) which is well within the tolerance limits.

      However if you are running 15" then the aspect and ratio doesn't go hand in hand and you end up running with an overall variation of 5.49% (32mm) which is on a higher side and you end with a speedo error and other unwanted things.

      The 185 65 R14 is a decent upsize and the ratio aspect stays within the tolerance limit of 2.23% (13mm) and of course it does help with the ground clearance too...

      For future, requesting you to refer to the particular website to calculate the ideal tyre size upgrade;
