- Q.I own a 2015 Honda Jazz 1.2SV MT. The tyres now need to be replaced. The original tyres are Bridgestone 175/65 R-15, non-alloy wheels. I have two questions: 1) If I want to upsize, what size and brand would you recommend without compromising on mileage. I mostly drive within city or highways. 2) Is upsizing to R16 feasible and if so, how would the performance be impacted?A.
A lot of research and performance testing undergoes before a tyre size is recommended and finalized by the automaker for their car. Owing to which, upsizing is not suggested by the carmakers as it affects the fuel efficiency and handling of the car. Hence, go for the new set of tyres with stock size. You can choose between JK UX Royale, MRF ZLX and CEAT Milaze.Answered 10 Mar 2021 12:12:07
- Q.I currently own a Honda Jazz 1.2L SV MT (Petrol). The company provided tyres are Bridgestone 175/65-R15 84T which are more than 5 years old. I have following two questions: (1) I have been recommended 185/65-R15 (Apollo) as new tyre set (replace all 4 tyres). Is this a good option in terms of size and brand?

You can consider the upsize of 185/65 R15 over the existing 175/55 R15 tyres. And choose from CEAT SecuraDrive, JK Vectra, or Bridgestone B290.Answered 04 Mar 2021 02:42:11

I would recommend you to stick to the stock size as upsizing the tyres will reduce the fuel economy and turning radius of the car. For better performance, consider buying Yokohama A.drive AA01-175/65 R15 84H.Answered 16 Jan 2020 11:29:58
- Q.i have honda jazz model2015 Model SVMT i need now one tyre to change which is best make tyre please adviceA.
If we understand your question right, you want to replace one of the tyres out of the four on your Honda Jazz SV MT model. It suggest to keep all four tyres of same make and model as difference in make/model may hamper the performance of a vehicle in terms of braking, handling and wearing of the tyre. If you still want to go for only one tyre change it is suggested to go for the same make/model as the present ones.Answered 07 Jan 2020 05:30:00
- Q.can i use 185/65/R15 tyre for Honda Jazz?A.
In the question you have not mentioned the Honda Jazz variant of which you seek tyre. Basically it seems you are looking to upsize from the existing OE size tyres. Across the range, the Jazz is fitted with either 175/65 R15 tyres or 175/70 R14 tyres. We suppose that at present your is Jazz is fitted with 175/65 R15, for which you are looking to upsize. First of all, upsizing of a car tyre other than the size recommended by the car maker is not adviced as it hampers the overall performance and fuel efficiency of the vehicle. Considering the aforesaid if you still want to opt for the upsize thing, the tyre you have mentioned in the question (185/65 R15) can be used as an upgrade for the Jazz.Answered 07 Jan 2020 05:30:00
- Q.I have baleno Delta which have been given with 185/65/R15 tyres.I want to upgrade with 195/65/R15 and 195/60/R15.Which size of tyre Should I prefer?A.
Car manufacturers do not recommend tyre upsize as it takes a toll on the performance, fuel economy and handling of a car. Considering the same, if you still want to opt for tyre upsize you can choose the 195/65 R15 tyre size for the existing 185/65 R15 for your Maruti Baleno Delta.Answered 07 Jan 2020 05:30:00
- Q.I am planing to buy the new Honda Jazz, But i feel the Ground clearance is a bit low, so how can i increase the ground clearence, also i am planning to get a set of new alloys, so how should i go about it, and which tyres to choose (i need low tyre noise and a good grip.A.
Hi, Checkout tyredekho tyre upsizing tool- http://tyres.cardekho.com/tyre-upsize. I will recommend you to upsize to 195/65R14 size. However, as a rule me make sure that we don't recommend a tyre size whose diameter difference is more than 3% from the original size. This means that the change in ground clearance will be neglegible. We think that tyre upsize should not be seen a way to increase ground clearance as it can severely affect the handling of a vehicle. You can go for Continental ContiComfortContact CC5 tyres RegardsAnswered 18 Feb 2016 11:51:01
