  1. I need to upgrade tyre size from 205/55 R16 Good Year to 205/60 R16 Bridgestone / Michelin of my linea Emotion Diesel.
    Should i go for it ? will it be ok or may create issues with stability, suspension, average calculation, low pickup etc.

    pl let me know

    The difference between the two sizes is almost 3.25%. Why do you want to do this?

  3. Because rear side looks bit odd due to big empty space above tyre, also the same sizes tyres @ SX4 and any other vehicle looks great.

    Anything between 3-4% is acceptable.
    In my previous car i had a difference of about 3.7% and i didnt face any issues.
    I assume his Linea is with the GC upgrade so the upgrade 205/60/16 will not hurt in any way.

    guys need help in selecting: bs my-02 vs michelin primacy 3st vs conti cpc2??
    which one to buy, pls help..

    also tyre size 195/60 or 195/65 r15. any advantages in upgrading to 195/65 r15 for the punto sport??
    i do like going to long drives. would get my car back from repair in a few days after a long gap so would like to decide the tyres before taking the delivery and changing them immediately.

    people from hyderabad, pls suggest a good shop in the madhapur, gachibowli, jubiliee hills area whr i can get a good price along with alignment and balancing as the fiat service is nearby to these areas only

    Stick to stock size is what I would say, 195/60 is a perfect size for our Punto's

    My suggestion for tyres are as follows

    Commuter
    My02 regular or sport
    PLC or 3ST (3ST is a replacement for PLC)
    Yoko AVS DB


    Performance
    Eagle F1 GSD3
    MA-Z1 (if you can source it)
    ES100

    No offense but I would stay away from Conti's
