The stock size for Santro Xing is 155/70 R13. Going for 155/80 R13 tyre size would not be recommended as it is an invalid upsize.
For any upsize to be valid, the diameter difference between the new and old size should be less than or equal to 3%. But in case of 155/70 and 155/80, this difference is 5.67%. Hence, I would seriously recommend you to use tyres in stock size of 155/70 R13 for your Santro Xing.
Take a look at the MRF ZVTS. These are hard compound rubber but last a long time.
If you don't drive much, then spending a little more on a set of Falken Sincera will give you better grip and less road noise. The difference will be noticeable instantly compared to the MRF at the cost of a shorter life.
Go for Michelin Energy XM2 or Bridgestone Turanza AR20 tyres for your Santro. Turanza would be a better option if your usage will be over rough or unpaved roads as they are more durable than Michelin.
I use a Hyundai Santro Xing (2012 model). The car is mainly driven on highways with not very good road-surfaces. Recently, I noticed the front tyres on my car with uneven tyre wear on one-side. I took the car to the repair shop where I was told to replace the tyres because they are worn out due to improper wheel alignment. I wanted to know if it is really necessary to replace the tyres?Read More
A car that is being driven with misaligned wheels tends to ‘eat’ the rubber and causes uneven tyre wear. Driving a tyre with an uneven wear pattern will greatly reduce steering response- the car will tend to ‘pull away’ which will eventually be of great concern to you as a driver. It is advised that you replace the tyres asap (stick with the same tyre size and rating as before); get the wheel-alignment done and also have front suspension components such as tie rods and ball joints etc., checked
