    Default Tyre Suggestion for local Alto

    Friends I need to replace tyres of my alto (local). Please suggest a good brand and size which is observed most suitable and comfortable and most important long lasting tyre for alto.

    Alto please tell me that if I go for Bridgestone B70 (155/70 R12), I found below change in diameter of the tyre. Is this change positive? Moving to less diameter :s.. Cuz I am already facing problem of car silencer hitting the jumps :s

    Thanks

    Brother 175/60 R13 is the perfect size PS people installed dinosaur ages lorry wagon tyres in Alto to save money which ruins the power and handling of alto.

    Bridgestone AR20 and Firestone F700 are good patterns.

    LingLong Greenmax Eco is also a good tyre on budget.

    Brother if u want to stick with 12" then no need to change the profile just stick with stock 145/80 R12 size which I do not recommend.

    You can try 175/60 R13 it would not harm for 1 day you can get it replaced if u dont like it in future.

    If the car is touching ground in 145/80 R12 size then something is wrong with your springs or shocks they are not damping well.

    Cultus and Alto do not touch ground in Karachi (most of the time).

    Their are three things u can do:
    1:stick to the genuine size and buy a good brand.
    2:get spacers (packing) on back side and go for 155/165 70 r12.
    3:their is one size available in market 155 r12 it can help u but before putting it on u need to check their is enough space that it won't rub with funders.
