pramod deshpandevia GoogleI m gng to plan to upgrade types for my grand I 10 175/65/R14 82H is there any milage problem please reply me
If you go for a harder compound tyre, you get low rolling resistance. Which means, they are easy to spin at the cost of reduced grip. A softer compound will grip the road well at the cost of slightly reduced fuel efficiency. As the contact patch increases, the same thing happens; you increase grip and fuel efficiency reduces.
There are extremes on both ends of the spectrum; the key is to find a balance.
You've chosen a good tyre size for the upgrade but you could face problems with the increase in the overall diameter of the tyre. The speedometer and the odometer could also be affected. As you increase the width, you'll have to decrease the sidewall. 175/60 R14 will be closer to the stock tyre circumference but because of its weird combination, it's very rare tyre spec and not easy to come by.
I'd advise you to stick with the factory spec and choose a softer tyre to improve the grip and handling. Here are some options:
165/65 R14 Earth 1 is a very quiet tyre with grip levels better than the factory fit tyres.
175/60 R14 Yokohama C Drive is another one to consider for 175-section tyre.
Manish Jainvia FacebookI drive a Hyundai Grand i10 2014 model. Currently i'm facing a problem where in my car alignment is not correct and the car runs towards the left. Onshowing the same to a technician, he suggested that it is not because of alignment but because your tyres are worn out (Car Mileage- 49500kms). Now i'm confused if he's trying to sell his product or is it genuinely because of that. The tyres do not look so worn out that they need replacement. Please suggest what should be done. Also, in case the tyre needs to be changed, which company would you recommend. Also, the current size of tyre is 165/65 R14. should i use the same configuration and what would be the difference if i use a 165/70 R14 tyre. ThankRead More
Well, mostly tyres usually run good for about 40,000-45,000 kms. However, if maintained properly, they could offer better mileage. So, the best way to assess if your tyres are worn out is to check if the tread depth on them is more than 1.6mm or not. If not, then the tyres need replacement for they are worn-out.
Vehicle pulling towards one direction is usually a symptom of faulty wheel alignment, but if the front tyres haven't worn out evenly i,e one more worn out then the other, then the car may start drifting to one side.
If the tyres have enough depth and the tyres seem to have worn out evenly, then there is some other problem which needs further inspection from a good service centre.
In case of tyre change, you will have to replace at least 2 tyres ( although replacing all 4 would be best from a safety and performance view point ).
You can use 165/70 R14 tyre, but this would have more sidewall height. While over a normal usage it wouldn't make much of a difference, over high ways or at high speeds the vehicluar stability may not remain precise. So, it is best that you use 165/65 R14.
If you want tyres that offer good grip, decent handling and long tread life, then go for MRF ZVTV. However, these tyres are a bit noisy, especially over highways.
A better option would be Yokohama Earth-1 tyre. It comes with a silica based compound for superior wet and dry traction and offers good comfort.
A top of the line option, however, would be Michelin Energy XM2. It delivers excellent performance over wet and dry surfaces and the ride quality is very comfortable.
