Method Used for Tyre Upsize Calculation

There is not much scope to increase the Total Diameter of the tyre that comes originally fitted in your car.

    Tyre Dimension Measurement
    Total Diameter = Wheel/Rim Diameter + Sidewall

This total diameter can only be increased by 3%, for a safe upsize of tyre. So, we calculate the total diameter for each tyre size and then compare this with the total diameter of the size that is originally fitted in your car.
If the difference lies within this range of 3 %, then only we would recommend that tyre.

I am having aveo 1.4 2007 model and want to replace all four tyres. Suggest me .

Hi Santosh,

If you want an economical option then go for Kumho Ecsta SPT KU tyre. It offers good traction and handling and has a good tread life. Another economical option would be Falken Sincera SN835.

In case you want something better then go for Bridgestone Turanza ER300. It is a very good tyre and offers great traction and performance. The ride quality is very comfortable and smooth. You can also go for Michelin energy XM2. This tyre performs as good as Turanza but offers better ride comfort.

If you want performance oriented tyres then choose out of Bridgestone MY02 Sporty Style tyre or Yokohama C Drive. They both offer great handling and performance. But since they are performance oriented tyres, their tread life would be relatively less than normal passenger tyres.

Can we put tyre of size 155/80 R13 for santro xing ?

Hello Suresh,

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.

Regards,

Ramit
