      Indigo/Manza - Alloy & Tyre Upgrade Options

      This thread is a treasure trove of info!

      Dad's IndigoCS is runing the original BS tubed type - s322 I think - at 28k kms. One of the tyres has lost its sidewall and beading - so I thought its a good opportunity to switch to tubeless ones though all current ones have decent tread levels left. A lot many recommendations seem to point at the Acceleres as the smart choice - though at 3.7k per tyre (quote from Tyre Empire, Whitefield) I'm unsure about these over Bridgestones etc. Any long term reports ? And what would be the pros/cons of sticking with 175/60 vs switching to 185/60 ?

      Also - any ideas on how much do tyre guys give for the older ones ?

      From what I've experienced & have gone through in this forum, we get absolutely nothing for old tires. But from a hearsay, you may try to negotiate to sell your old tires to used car dealers who might want to buy them for lowest possible amount so as to swap them into one of their used car, PROVIDED, yours looks better than the ones on their old car.
      Light travels faster than sound, this is why some people appear bright before you hear them speak

      zenx, first of all get the wheel alignment/balancing checked. Its very unusual to loose tread only on one tyre.
      Considering its a Indigo driven by your dad Acceleres are a good choice.

      Nopes - tread's fine - its the sidewall that took a hit over a few bad patches with really low air - and its the beading along the rim of the tyre thats gone. The tread-wear is quite uniform and not too much.

      I've been using it for approximately 10k kms now.
      Absolute VFM and built to last.
      I've seen Bridgestone getting damaged and Yokahama too.
      I've used it for all kinds of roads, simply superb.
      Even 130+ speeds are handled without fuss.
      Highly recommended.
      And what would be the pros/cons of sticking with 175/60 vs switching to 185/60 ?
      A little more grip much recommended.
      Also - any ideas on how much do tyre guys give for the older ones ?
      Nothing, you'd be lucky to have it disposed off at the store.

      zenx: Acceleres are a good buy, but if you don't want to spend too much, try the Maxxis MA-V1. I hear they are good VFM tyres and more grippier than the Apollos.

      Well, the biggest advantage of going 185/60s is the advantage in braking. The car will brake much better under panic braking.

      PS: You can contact Hercules Tyres for the Maxxis. And Gearheads get a special discount too.

      The ones on Rainier's car are the Maxxis MA-Z1. These come under extreme performance with a V shape thread. The ones I suggested here for Sameer are the MA-V1. More comfort and a different thread pattern to the Z1s.

      More info here.

      Thanks McL! Will check out these - want to avoid super softs since its for very sedate driving, and want them to last at least 40k kms in decent shape.
