Hello,

Well - Datsun Go Plus come in - 13 Inch Wheels in R 155/70 Tyres
In case of Tyre Upsize - as a general practice - its known that the overall diameter difference should not be more than 2 % between the original Stock Size to New Upsize. Been - Braking, Suspension Components are well designed for optimal efficiency, if the Upsize Difference is within 98% of original size - then it would be relative okay to have no major impact on shockers, braking & other suspension parts.

To assist you with:-
Existing Stock Size
> Datsun Go Wheel size - 13 inch = 33.02 cm, Tyre Size is 155/70 implies - (15.5*.7) * 2 of both sidewall = 21.7 cm. Overall diameter = 54.72 cm. Considering 2% deviation - maximum diameter should be 55.8 cm,

Upsize Options
> If you Seek Wheel Upsize and Relative Bigger Tyres then Closest Upsize - would be R14 (35.56cm) - 175/65 (22.75cm) = 58.31 cm - but this would deviate in around 7% - which makes it mismatch

> R14 - 175/60 - can be a close fit - but again it deviates on permissible standard deviation and might enhance slight rolling.

> Even if you retain in 13 Inch Wheel and upsize to relative bigger tyres for enhanced grip i.e. 175/70 in 13 Inch. This will again exceed the overall deviation matrix. Bare any choices in R175/60.

Thus the 3 common upsize -
> R14 175/65
> R 14 175/60
> R 13 175/70
turns out to be mismatch. Choosing same may impact suspension, braking and mileage drop

If you reduce in sidewall height to 60 and choose wider tyres as R 185/60 in 13 Inch Wheels - this might turn to be a fit then it might enhance rolling resistance and there are hardly any tyres in this Stock Size.

Suggest to get manufacturer view / dealer view on same.

Hi,

I also have bought the Go+ and as mentioned here by experts there are hardly any choices for tyre size upgrade. I ( after a lot of research ) finally changed my tyres to 165/65 R13. This is not a real upgrade from 155/70 R13 however the Michelin rubber is a bit wider (165 over 155 ) and better in terms of grip and high speed stability as well. This also fits in less than 2% deviation.

Just thought of putting this in case this helps.

Ride safe...!

Warm regards,
Ketan Ghaisas
