    Default Tire / Rim Size for Khyber

    Hi All,
    I m planning to put new Rims/Tyres in my khyber and need advise on the size. For now it has 12'', can i replace them with 13'' and if yes then what would be the ideal tire size.

    Since I m running my car on patrol, and lets say if I go for 13", is that going to impact the fuel consumption???

    @Rozzz: thaks for the input.
    I m just wondering why not 12" and why 13". I mean a friend of mine is using 165/12 and he is also happy with the performance. My question is what value would a 13" rim size would add to the ride.
    thank u!!
