    Salam

    The stock on idsi is 165/80R13 (i think)

    While keeping teh same 13" rim you can use following:

    195/70R13
    205/65R13

    go for Yokohama A539 you won't regret. I myself am using A539 195/55R15 in my steermatic and they are awsome.

    205/65/R13 is 0.4% slow (speedo 60, actual speed 60.3)
    195/70/R13 is 1.5% slow (speedo 60, actual speed 60.9)
    195/65/r13 is 1.8% fast (speedo 60, actual speed 58.9)

    So, calculation wise, 205/65/R13 is better, but is this feasible to put 205 width on city, any affects on suspension etc? If none, I'll go for this size inshallah.

    205 would be too much but it will have no effect on suspension, brakes and comfort will be much improved, only the fuel consumption will be effected a bit.

    I would recommend 195

    i think 205 is too big for 13" rims. I installed 185/Bridgestone Potenza GIII tyres in a family friends city, the performance and comfort was awsome (Y). highly recommend them.

    thanks for the suggestions, I spent some time in market yesterday and here is what I found available

    Firstly, I could not find any 195 or 205 in 13". Max available was 185. So, here are list of 185/70-R13 tires with prices that I found. Prices are per tire unless mentioned

    (From Saif Traders)
    01. Yokohama 355 (Rs 2500)
    02. Bridgestone B70 (Rs2750)
    03. Dunlop 490 (Rs 2400)

    (From Allah Tawakal Tire House)
    04. Yokohama 760 (Rs 9800 for all 4)
    05. Michellen Nexen (Rs 9000 for all 4)

    (From Malik Tire House)
    06.Michellen Appolo (Rs 2800)
    07. Bridgestone B700 (Rs 3300)
    08. Goodyear Ventura (Rs 3500)
    09. Duron (Rs 2200) - never heard it before

    (From Allah Malik Tire House)
    10. Yokohama S306 (Rs 2500)
    11. Bridgestone B391 (Rs 2800)
    12. Dunlop 490 (Rs 2400)

    (From Hanif Sons)
    13. Yokohama 357 (Rs 2750)
    14. Bridgestone 391 (Rs 2650)
    15. Dunlop SP 70i (Rs2500)

    I did not find Bridgestone Potenza GIII, as mentioned by AkbarG8. Can some one post its price and availability.

    Regards

    4 tyres, dunlop. 15 inch, 50 profile, 195. Used for 1500 km only.

    Alloy rims, 15 inch, original corolla rims.

    I had these installed in a city and the handling, particularly the grip on these tyres is phenomenal.

    Demand: 25000 negotiable.

    @msohaib

    im suprised the potenza GIII isnt available in the lahore region. 13/185 cost us around 14K (3500 a piece). We ended up paying 7K as the tyre wala purchased the stock tyres for 7K.

    Im using 185/65/14 in my own personal city, the grip is phenomenal (using stock rim of civic exi). Those tyres cost me 4250 each after heavy bargaining. Very satisfied till now .
