      Hyundai i20 Tyre & Alloy Wheel Upgrade Guide

      Hi,
      I own Huyndai I20 Asta model which comes with Apollo Acelere 185/65 R14 . It had done 40000 Km. I want to change the tyres. Confused with Michelin 185/70 R 14, Bridgestone 185/65 R14 and Apollo Acelere 185/65 R14. I have running of 3000 km/month; partly on rough roads. Is Michelin tyre worth for a price of 4900 per tyre ?. Please suggest.

      abhijeetbhande, try yokohama a drive which is excellent. This will be a good alternative for michelin and will cost 4k for 185 65 R14.

      I suggest not to go for apollo acelere. Bridgestone is also good but as expensive as michelin. I had yokohama a drive on my i10 and now a drive (185 70 r14) on my all new swift. It works like charm

      Hi there,

      I have a hyundai i20 crdi and plan to change the tire in a months time.
      Earlier I had planned on buying bigger rims but now decided to retain the stock alloys and save money for a remap.

      The stock tire size is 185/65/r14. What are my options ?
      I would like them to be grippy but at the same time not very heavy on the wallet.

      Can I fit Maxxis MA-Z1 205/60/r14 on the OE alloys ?

      And does anyone know the dealer for Maxxis here in Mumbai ? Or should I just get them from Bangalore ?

      What is the width of the OE alloys? Personally, for an i20 I feel 205s an overkill. 195s should be just fine.

      Not sure who sells Maxxis in Bombay! If not you can always get them shipped from Bangalore as long as there is stock.

      Just pull out the spare alloy in your boot & check. Rim width should be marked on it.

      Coming to the tyres, first find out if MA-Z1s are available, if not then we can look out for other options

      MA-Z1s dont come in 195/60-14. I guess that is why he was looking at 205/60-14 in the first place.

      You get Hankook H424s in 195/60-14. You also get MRF ZLOs . Shyam is using the H424s on his Getz CRDi. Has he posted a review of that somewhere here?

      In 195/60-14, you get Mazzis MA-V1s, Yoko A drives(4500/-) and Michelin XM1+(5600/-)

      Hhhmmm, forgot MA-Z1s don't come in 195s.

      shyam had posted a few lines about the tyres in his ownership thread. Pretty good tyres, still hasn't managed to lock his tyres under braking. Something that used to happen often on the BFG & CPC2S. Lateral grip also seems good, though not in the league of the previous set of RS-2s he had.

      V1s, XM1s not suitable for an i20 that is going to be remapped. I wonder what tyres crazydiablo is running on his i20?

      The H424s are indeed gr8 tyres. Brilliant wet weather tyres and in the dry only 10% less gripper than the RS2s and trust me thats a lot. As for tyre life i think these tyres would last unlike most other tyres that i have had
