1. WagonR LXI comes with 145/80R13. Can i change R13 to R14 as VXI is 155/65R14?
2. If i change all steel rims to R14 with 165/80R14 is it not allowed or not possible?
3. What about Hancook tyres? One of my friend is using that in his Skoda Fabia and given a good feedback or else i plan for Bridgestone / Michelin
Since there are lot of options available, our TAI
tech teams clarify my queries.
Thanks in advance
Hi kumargmks. Here are the answers to your queries:
1> Yes. You can change to 155/65R14, but you'd have to change the rims also in this case. You can, on the other hand, fit 145/80R14 on your existing rims.
2> I think it would not be possible and would result in a difference in diameter. If you want to upgrade to 14" rims/alloys, best would be to fit 155/65R14 tyres, that come with the Vxi.
3> I haven't used Hankook tyres. I have been running on MRFs for quite some time now and have also used Michelins in the past. I would recommend MRF from my experience.
Are you planning to add alloys?
