These are normal tyres but are called low profile tyres.

It wont have a tube, these days all cars come with tubeless tyres.

Yes, such tyres are costly but not by a huge margin.

To add it will be a very very rough ride driving on these. Plus it will affect car's suspension majorly!!

I think it's a PS job. Such low profile for Spark doesn't suit it.


Considering the bad road conditions in Chennai it's better to stick with the stock size.

Re: What type of tyre is this

These are known as low profile tyres which are seen on sports cars for the improved handling and steering feedback they offer but there’s a compromise with ride comfort. Not practical for a car like Spark in India. Moreover it seems to be a Photoshop to me.

Even only on the rims, the spark would have more GC than seen in the pic. This definitely is a PS job IMO.
