      Thanks in advance.

      Cheers
      Found this up-size guide on ChangeMyTyre.com. The below up-size upgrades can be done retaining the stock rim

      The options are between:
      1. 175/70R14 - OEM Size
      2. 195/65R14
      3. 205/60R14


      I am inclined towards the 205/60R14. What are the benefits of up-sizing to this tyre size. To what extent would the mileage dip? Also, which brand/model should I be looking at.

      Cheers.

      Better grip, better braking and improved cornering.

      My friend had 185/R14 and now has 195/55/r15 and has had a drop of 1/2kmpl with 205 you can expect 1.5 to 2.5kmpl drop I guess.

      The other cons are you will loose acceleration and top speed. I suggest you get 195 section at maxxx.
      '08 Suzuki Swift - 1.3 VXI - sold
      '13 Skoda Rapid TDI - 1.6 Code6'd - sold
      '11 Honda Civic - 1.8 VMT - FFE + Intake - sold
      '12 Hyundai Verna Fluidic - 1.4 VTVT

      I have stock Apollo tyres which has run 60000 kms in less than 2 years(22 months to be precise) in my i20 crdi. Thread is left for another 7000-8000 kms . But I feel like changing the tyre since I usually go out for long drives quite often.
      After lot of research and reading reviews, I have narrowed down to Michelin XM2 and Yokohama Earth 1. I am gonna stick to OEM size(185/65/R14).
      I feel Michelin is more comfortable but side wall is weak. On the other hand, Yokohama is also better in comfort but not upto Michelin but have good thick side wall. (So far in my Apollo tyres, total of 4 punctures occurred , out of which only 1 side wall puncture which is currently my spare tyre)
      Can you fellow guys help in choosing among the two?
      thank you.

      Hello everyone

      Reviving a old thread

      I have a 2012 model Hyundai i20 still on stock Apollo Acleres .They havs run 37000 in 5 years and need replacement.

      Suggest the most appropriate tyre upgrade without affecting fuel economy much.Also any good tyre's under 5000 per tyre since i plan to change all five.My car running is on broken roads and InterCity only.Wet grip also needs to be good.

      What is the size of tyres? I vouch for Earth 1. They are quite less noisy and has good wet grips too. Though I have not owned i20, I have same tyres on my Corolla and my close friends have them on i10 n Punto.

      Sorry for not mentioning earlier.The current setup is 175/70/R-14 .I am planning to update to 185/65R-14 .

      Earth one is on my radar.What about punctures and sidewall strength.Also any approximate rate of per tyre.

      185/65 R14 is the best upgrade. I have read good things about Earth series too
