  2. Tyres & Alloy Wheels
  3. Tuesday, February 07 2017
Tata Bolt XT 90 - 4 tyres (front & rear) comes with 4 alloys with the size of R15 - but spare wheel tyre as Steel with the size of R14.

The dealer quoting that spare wheel tyre size will be R14. Is it correct?

This is not acceptable – how 1 wheel size less then 3 wheels while driving..?

Looking your reply asap..

Its right - the Spare Tyre comes in 14 Inch Wheel in Tata Bolt
The practice is happening with most of the Car Makers where in they provide a
> Smaller tyre / Smaller Wheel - so that the tyre can be used only for emergency purpose as stop gap arrangement
> This smaller tyre can be used as alternate when the original tyre is punctured - so as to make car drive-able for a distance

Been the tyre mentioned is a spare tyre - the regular tyres (4 tyres in 4 wheel) as available of 15 Inch Wheel with R 175/65 to be only used for drive-ability purpose and spare tyre to be used for emergency purpose only in case of puncture or so

Hope should help !!
