@ Sushan

Generally Wheel replacement with Alloys does not void in warranty of Car as long as
> Steel Wheels are replaced with Similar Size Genuine Alloys
> Bought it from Authorized Genuine Workshop

However - as you considering option to
> upsize Wheels &
> upsize Tyres
and to a 15 Inch size R 185/65 as against stock size of 14 Inch R 165/65.

This is a gross mis-match size as it leads to much more distortion with higher than acceptable limit difference in circumference area - which will end up been
> Speed o meter error
> Suspension Lower arm & bushes worn out
> Body Roll and Braking Abilities

Hope would assist in !!

@ Mayur,

Yes - at R14 175/65 Tyres in Xcent will
> Tyre Height will increase by almost 10 mm
> Tyre Circumference will increase by almost 40 mm

The overall impact yes will be marginal gain of couple of mm on ground clearance
Hope should help !!

I want to upgrade two front tyres of my Hyundai Xcent from 165/65/14R to 175/65/14R.Will two tyres of 175 in the front and two of 165 in the rear make any difference? Which tyres do you recommend?

@ Sp mathur,

Changing in only Front Tyres and that too with higher width with similar profile will increase in
> Tyre Circumference
> Tyre Height

Unless the suspension is designed in such way - such changes are Not recommended as it will create unevenness to car, been rear tyres are smaller than front tyres and will impact handling of car.

So - changing only the front tyres with higher up width is not recommended

I have Hyundai Xcent September 2014 model and after 40,000 Km has upgraded to 165/70/ R14 - Goodyear Duraplus.

Few Observation:
1. Ride Quality has improved. Pothole, rough roads and speed breaker bumps has smoothened out
2. Steering which was lifeless has now got some meat in it
3. Confidence on taking sharp turns in flyovers or twisting road in speed above 75 has increased. Previously with stock tyres never attempted doing it above 60
4. Initially felt the car has gained some height

This size seems to be an optimum mix so as not to damage the stock rack, pinion, pinion joints and tie-rods.

Completed 5000 kms post upgrade. No issue as of now
