    If you are planning to keep the stock 12" rims then 165/70/12 will be the perfect size for your car.
    The stock tyre size is 145/80/12 but IMO it is too small for this car.
    If you plan to upgrade to bigger rims then 165/65/13 would be a good size.

    Try to get Yokohamas.
    They are expensive but very good.
    Dunlop is good too.
    Make sure that you get a fresh set.
    One of the most difficult things in the world is to know how to do something, and to watch without comment, somebody else do it incorrectly.

    +1. Ive changed my Alto tyres twice.both with the same tyres. YOKOHAMA S707. 165/70/12. The 1st ones were so good that i opted for the same again. Very comfy,grippy,broad looking yet still very much fuel economic! The best thing is that wear off very slowly n the tyres retain their tread for long.even after 60k they were looking pretty good.but changed as 1 tyre was cut due to glass n thought to change em all! A week ago the same tyres fot me 273 kms in 1 tank of CNG!

    hight of ff tyre is 80 and in same 12 inch rim 70 hight low for pakistan roads, alto dont have enough speace for wide tyres and come out of body and not looks decent. if u go for 13 inch rim than best size for alto is 155/70/13 and if for 12 inch rim than better stay on ff size i.e 145/80/12 also good on fuel consumption.

    yokohama far better than rest of options avilable in market.

    have two altos, one with 165/70/r12 and the other one with 165/65/r13

    165/70/r12 LINGLONG L770 (China )
    165/65/r13 Kumho

    LINGLONG bhi sahi chal rha hai yaar ab tak, top speed, fuel economy, wide look, raised white letters, good grip and above all soft bhi hain.

    Kumho ki tu baat hi na karein cuz kumho power racer 2 ne mere gari mein 72K tk use kiye hain, abhi 5 days pehle change karwae hain or dobara kumho hi daale hain.

    12'' me gari ka pick or braking wohi rehti hai by default jo k hoti ha alto ki.
    13'' me thora sa pick kum hojata hai lekin top speed bht achi hoti ha with very good road grip and stability.

    bs yeh zehan me rakhna k agr 13'' pe jao tu rim koi aise daalna jinka weight bht lite ho, bhari rims mat daalna werna gari hard hojati ha 13'' pe.

    Brand Yokohama, Type Tubeless - stick to original size for better fuel economy & comfort very soon CNG will cost what petrol costed in 2008.

    Good to know that you are satisfied.
    I wanted to get Yokos but was unable to find them in 12" so got Dunlop.
    Satisfied so far.

    165/70/12 and 145/80/12 have almost the same dia (the rim plus the rubber part)
    165/70/12 in only 0.5mm smaller in dia which is negligible.
    IMO 165/70/12 is the perfect size for Alto.
    Wont looks odd or big on the car.

    You don't find bridgestone B70 Made in Japan these days. I too have an Alto and using Dunlop SP SPORTS 490 165/70/12. Mine are very good in terms of road grip and I gives a very dashing look to the car. However I still advice you to go for YOKOHAMA S-707 as I ve used them in my previous car. Zunny also recommended you above for YOKOs. if you need soft tyres as they are the best and you never feel bumps bad while on the road but look wise they are normal. Now choice is yours. BEST Of LUCK.

    One more thing you find your steering little bit hard so go for 155 instead of 165 width.

    i agree but yokohama bhi tu japanese nahi araha takreeban sare hi china mein ban rahe hain ab, cuz waha cost kum aati hai, kaha yahi jata hai k indonesia hai, thailand hai, taiwan hai, vietnam hai etc etc. Such yeh ha k takreeban sare hi ab china mein bante hain, bs farq itna hai k china wale ki packing alag hai, jisko indonesia, thailand, taiwan, vietnam etc etc kehte hain uski packing alag hai, jb k mera jahan tk khayal hai likha kisi pe bhi "made in china" nahi hota, yahan tk k china k jo tyres hain chinese brands k un tk pe bhi "made in china" nahi likha hota i m not sure mgr jahan tk mera khayal hai srf MICHELLIN aik aisa brand ha jo abhi tk "Japanese araha hai" or michellin ki range 12'' yah 13'' mein nahi hai uski range start hi 14'' se hoti ha.
