My City 03-04 has original General 165/80/R13 tyres. CNG 55Litres is also installed on my car. I need suggestion from Pakwheel members for changing the tyres and what tyres and rims will suit me. Please also provide the advantages/disadvantages of recommended tyres.
Id recommend bridgestone Potenza GIII tyres. 185/75/80?/13. i think the minimum size they come in is 185.. excellent road grip and comfort. please let us know if you wish to stick to same tyre width or not.
@Faisal if you intend to stick with the stock rims, then you can get any tyre with 185X70 R13 specs. This is closest to the factory one in dimensions and you will have least of speedometer related errors.
If you are planning to change the rims too, you can go for either the STEERMATIC size i.e 15 inch rims and tyres with 185X55 R15 specs.
If you want to install a 14 inch rim, you can go for 185X65 R14 tyres. I have got the same size in my idsi. The speed error is minimal -
Thank you all for suggesting new tyre size. I am also looking forward to the cost factor. For example, if I would prefer 185/65/R14 over 195/55/R15, what would be cost saving. I want minimum compormise on fuel consumption with taking care of extra load of CNG on my car. Please advise.
