    Default Recommendation needed for Alloy Rims and Tyres for Santro Club

    Hello guys.

    I am not well in these things but surely have some desire to install good looking wheels on my car.
    can you please recommend any of them considering style and designs (of course better in quality). Also considering the requirement for the Santro, what it can have at maximum. I guess it's pre-built with 13" (Rim/Tyre or what ever it is used to be termed)..

    I personally would like to install ones some thing like e.g. larger and wider rim, small in section height(if view from side), wider in width.
    I don't know what is it called practically but it's some thing like below
    Recommendation needed for Alloy Rims and Tyres for Santro Club - SS59520225 45 17

    don't tell me that they are not for Santro. There should be in any way.

    Also please inform about the prices with your suggestions. would be better If It get not very expensive. If you could tell me the early range in price where it could stand in, then I could tell you that how much I could afford...

    Thanks
    Regards

    I've got one tyre bursted today. I really need to visit market tomorrow now. Please respond if I really need some thing to know about..

    I don't have power steering.. so please inform me about any thing wrong with selecting the tyres like above. I heard that for wide tyres the vehicle should have power steering to easily support drive.

    I just visited market today and they made me disappointed saying that the Santro can't get Low Profile tyres. :/ It only can get 13 inch alloys with the same profile.
    Stock size is 155/70R13. And they started giving opinions that if I really want low profile tyres on it then I would need the Bumbers modified as per the requirements to install low profile tyres with large rims.

    I just saw an other thread at https://www.pakwheels.com/forums/gen...-profile-tyres
    some one actually had 15 inch alloys with low profile tyres.

    So today I just got one tyre to replace the bursted one... I got Hankook with same size as stock. the stock brand was also same the Hankook.

    But I was really considering to have the Low Profile tyres with large rims on it. Do any one have to say on it... Please.

    Thanks

    If you ask for openion from the tyre shops the will only discourage you doing so.
    Just go and ask them for your favourite size (as you are willing to change).
    This will help Tire size calculator

    ^ You can install low profiles but they would make the ride bumpy.
    @OP 165/65/13 would be good for Santro.
    About the profile thing you can decrease the profile but it would make the ride bumpy.
    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.
