    You don't need to change the tyres right away. They're good enough as it is. Stick with them for a while and later change them after warranty period expires

    Purely up to you. If you want good fuel economy, than stick to stock tyres. And if you want better road grip, better handeling and normal fuel economy you should change tyres. As far as quality is concern i think stock tyres are also good for 15 to 20 k. By the way wagon R looks more good in bit wide tyres. Stock tyreas looks prety think on it.

    JDK11 & omar 4494 both have given valid suggestions. I would suggest no need to change tyres immediately but after about 30k km , the originals will have worn down a bit then you can consider changing them. If you want better grip and braking then change immediately.

    Dunlop company specs would eliminate mystterious tyre sounds, improved drive pleasure n a bit better road grip as per my experience with different cars but stock tyres perform equally good but just to improve you can consider a change. Prior finalizing the deal, you can dismantle the stock tyre from the rim n check it with the desired one, if noticed some remarkable difference in weight n softness then definitely change provided you have allocated budget, if no difference then better drop the idea n use stock tyres to avoid excess expense.

    thanks all for your valuable suggestion. @omar4494 what do you mean by normal fuel economy? @mehran stock tyres dont have good road grip and braking? i have read that if you change stock tyres then you compromise fuel economy, suspension and performance.

    When you shift to more wider tires , engine will have to face more resistance to roll the car as the contact area will also increase. so you will see a down shift in km/liter. E.g if you are getting 15km/l average in city than changing in tires this may drop down to 14 or 13. hope now you understand.

    If ur Wagon is Japanese. Than do get ur tire checked up as they are mostly used. I own a Wagon R as well i changed my tires as the stock were hard and wasnt giving me good comfort. Good soft tires wud even solve ur fuel economy problem along with performance, grip etc.

    #YOLO but safety first.
