      The standard car comes shod with 175/65 R 14 Rubber with a 82T rating. Mine has MRF ZVTV.

      This is interpreted as
      175 tread width
      65 aspect ratio, i.e., height is 65% of the tread width
      R Radial
      14 Wheel size in inches
      82 Weight Rating (Max 475kg per wheel)
      T Speed Rating (190kph maximum)

      The ratings look pretty conservative for a 950kg car (AT which is heavier than the MT).

      Inflation:
      The recommended pressure is 29psi (2.0kg/cm^2) front and 26psi (1.8kg/cm^2) rear

      Michelin XM2 will be good. I dont have any experience with everything you have mentioned but XM1+ is very good so XM2 should be better than XM1+.

      well...i would vote for the turanzas ER 60...brilliant tyres...great for our indian roads. They are silent, grippy enough for ur car n the most important thing considering our roads...strong n durable...a complete all rounder IMO.
      I am running those on my BEAT D (175/65r14) since day one.... n i couldn't be happier...have driven on all kinds of roads...not a single puncture, bulge or anything.
      My friend has them on his polo which has done 26k kms in one yr...n these tyres are still silent n look new.

      Have been looking for turanzas even for my civic in 225/45 r17...but failed to find em in this size so now looking into other options.

      sgiitk - 475 kgs / wheel translates to 1900 kgs. Minus the weight of the car which would be around 1000kgs. This leaves you with 900 kgs for the passengers + baggages.

      Average weight of an adult is around 80 kgs. With 4 adults + 1 child - it would be 320 kgs + 50 kgs - 370 kgs. This leaves you with atleast 530 kgs to be loaded as luggage which I am sure not possible with Brio's mini boot.

      I guess I am missing something here?

      Just checked - the Max Permissible Vehicle weight is 1350kg. So even with any likely (or even possible) overload it is still more than fine, as pointed out by you.

      If one of the tyres suffers a puncture in a fully loaded car, the margin is down to 75 kg. That is tight.

      Not really. The axle load on the others will not increase that significantly.
