      Zen Estilo Tyre & Alloy Wheel Upgrade Guide

      Its time for me to change my cars tyres..
      Just now googled and found out my car tyre size

      155 / 65 R13

      Would like to know what all options i have.. like if i stick to same size what brands should i go for?
      Or is it better to upgrade? If so what size should i upgrade ?

      Basicaly my requirement:

      1.Less sound
      2.Good Grip (Even in wet surface)
      3.Mileage should not decrease from whats current. (Coz i will be broke. Already it gives very low mileage)

      Is it possible to get Tubeless?

      Also would be great if you could let me know where i can get the tyre you are suggesting in chennai

      WildWeasel if you are on budget constrain, look for the stock one, else the best option would be Michelin XM1+. Dont buy the xm1+ if you are an aggressive driver.

      I heard XM1 is not available in my tyre range.. And no am not on a budget.. this tyres stuff is gonna be for a long time..so extra Rs doesnt matter as along as its worth it.

      Heard that for this tyre range not much options are available.(From Raja Tyres) Available one is 165/R13 -Bridgestone

      I'm sure you can upsize to 14". You'll have more options then right? If you have money for alloys then you can do that.

      Sounds like one of the stables from Maruti, probably Vxi WagonR; These are the best man!!! Go with the same sizing.
      If you like tubeless, opt for Michelin or Yokohama otherwise JK is best IMO. Do not even think about Goodyear!!! (Damn me!!!)

      optimus_prime, IF, that's a WagonR, then it will involve in installing spacers, otherwise the tyres would rub the front bumper & mudflaps during slight hard brakings. Not sure about rears though.

      Per wheel might cost around 2-3K for the basic ones; You can ideally keep aside about 25K for the entire 5 wheel upgrade from steel to alloy & tyres.

      Edit - Sorry optimus_prime, 195/45 R14 is direct fit & don't require spacers.

      I guess an upsize would mean your ride quality will take a hit.
      But an upsize would mean better handling for the car and more stability.
      I dont know about the sizes etc and perfect fit info so you can listen to the other guys about that.
      Alloys normally are lighter, and are better for braking.
      Flipside (and the reason why i'm terrified of going in for alloys for my car) is that they are prone to damage if you hit a pothole real hard.
      Some of the brands will only come in set of 4 and 5. You cannot pick up just one if they get damaged. In such a scenario you will be in trouble.
      But I guess the other members will vouch more for the adv rather than disadv of alloys.

      Also, I do not know if tire and alloy prices vary based on width (145, 155, 165 etc / 4J, 5J etc) or based on the size (r13, r14, r15 etc).
      Catch me if you can.....

      Go for the biggest Acelere that you can fit in that wheel well - you cannot get more VFM than Aceleres
