Well - as you have already upgraded wheels from 14 inch to 15 inch and tyres too.
Wish to know how was the experience with Goodyear
195/65 size in 15 inch seems too much variation and is subject to compromise in mileage

As you have upgraded wheels - best tyre size should be either R185/65 or R195/60
In terms of Make & Brand - Michelin & Bridgestone is what we recommend as been Internationally renowned as world largest Tyre Manufacturers in which both are well known for for long term performance and better suited to Indian road conditions -

Michelin is ideal for city drive, while Bridgestone to our view can act well on both off roads & city drive too. Suggest to choose any one of them - wont go wrong !!

Hello,

Alloy Wheel Certainly helps - wherein
> Exterior Aesthetics and Looks Improves with Stylish Alloys
> Drive and Handling - but to a very smaller extent - been Alloys lighter in weight as against Steel Wheel - ends up with effective braking, cornering experience -
> Along with it, even adds upto 2% better mileage too

Hello,

Upsizing from R 165/80 to R 185/70 in same 14 Inch wheels is an okay approved size - but it would actually reduce in tyre circumfrence

To our view - if you keen for
> Tyre Upsize and
> change in Steel wheels to Alloys

A better Proposition would be rather to look for

> Upsize Wheels by Size+1 - i.e 15 Inch Alloys instead of 14 inch
> Upsize Tyre to R 185/65

Even this is stock OEM recommended size for Zxi, Zdi Variant and would end up with enhanced grip, handling and ideal upsize for the car.

Hi,

I would like to upgrade my swift vdi tyres 165/80/R14 85 S
Which brand would you suggest to go for ? (Michelin or bridgestone or any other brand )
As i have realised that swift suspensions are little tight so as far i know, michelin tyres are little tight on road, am i right ?
Will it enhance the braking also as compared to company fitted wheels (my car does not have abs).
Thanks

Sir,

I own a Swift ZXi Hatchback Car, which runs on Goodyear Tyre. One of my tyre had a bulge because of some puncture, and now the tyre remains unusable. As per the above reviews, I am planning to purchase a Bridgestone tyre. My doubt is that, when all the other 3 Goodyear tyres are in a good condition, can i replace the defective tyre with just one bridgestone tyre for now? Will it have any problem in just replacing an other model of typre? Kindly let me know.

As you have already driven VDI with 195/65/r15. Wanted to know your review and experience on bumpy roads or speed breakers, while you were driving with 195/65/r15, though it is not recommended by many. I want to upgrade to 195/65/r15 from the 185/65/r15
