    Default Tyre Size Upgrade City 2010

    I have reserached and found these optimal figures for tyre upgradation for my City 2010. However, I want to know real world implications in regards to effects on mileage, suspension, steering response, handling etc etc. with these combinations.

    Personaly im inclining towards 195/60/15.

    Stock Size: 175/65/15

    Upgrade Options:
    1. 185/60/15 0.886% too fast
    2. 195/60/15 1.082% too slow
    3. 205/55/15 0.333% too fast
    4. 185/55/16 0.242% too slow (stock size on premuim models in Thailand & Malaysia)
    5. 195/55/16 2.044% too slow
    6. 195/50/16 1.186% too fast
    7. 205/50/16 0.497% too slow

    I would suggest 195/60 R15. Its optimum size and I planned the same for my City but later decided to stick to stock tyres

    195/60/R15.

    I upgraded to 195/65/R15 from 185/65/R15, just got a wider tyre without affecting the stock size too much.

    sir

    Obviously 205/55 R15 is a good size, choose a good tire brand and class, that is the most important thing.

    Yokohama Decibel V550, Bridgestone Turanza GR90 are good tires.

    I was contemplating getting some light weight 16" rims but when i went to the tire shop, the salesperson suggested i stick to 15" because installing 16" would void the warranty. Can anyone comment if that is true?

    Ever since hearing that ive been thinking about just buying a set of 16" rims/tires and keeping the stockers for when i take the car in for maintenance/ warranty claim (if needed) and they'll come in handy for when i decide to sell the car b/c upgraded rims price is never recovered upon sale..

    175/65/15 is best 4 city 2010 by increasing width or decreasing the profile of the tyre will result into more fuel consumption and suspension become harder on decreasing the profile....so my dear friend my suggestion is that alwayz use factory fitted size....and u can use japanese or germans tyres instead of factory fitted euro star tyre....its a practical suggestion from my side.....few years ago i have also a craze of using low profile and upsize tyre but my ride become a ricksha...so dear friend dont go for customized size...alwayz use factory fitted size

    @half_lunatic...
    cng does void the warranty... but the rims don't i think.... if u've a warranty claim for suspension than it would be a issue ... as they try to get it off them... and put it on the customer and mostly on the insurance....

    one of my freind had a suspension problem... and instead of the warranty claim they ask him to claiim the insurance... and made it a accident that the car hitted a stone... !!! and even the insurance paid

    Thank you all.

    Ive decided to get 195/60/15 Yokohama.

    Can you also recommend a dealer that has fresh Yokohama tyre stock?

    I got 205 50 R16 yesterday for my City 2010. The drive is much more comfortable as compare to the stock ones. no more DUG DUG in the rear trust me. I did put 205 55 R16 for one day just for testing but I found 205 50 R16 more comfortable and now the front mudflaps wont hit bumps and for tires I put Dunlop Derezza DZ101. Awesome tires. Iw ill start a new thred over the weekend with pics as soon as I get time.

    16" would look amazing but i am reluctant in getting them installed due to chances of the warranty being voided... Though i look forward for your pics for some inspiration.
