Size Matters

12th Apr 2013 9:33 pm

Looking to upsize his VW Vento's stock tyres.

I plan to change the tyres of my petrol Vento Highline to improve the ride on bumpy roads. It currently runs on factory-fitted 185/60 R15s. Is an upsize possible without changing the wheels? Which tyres would you recommend? I use the car mostly on highways.

AAA You could upsize your tyres to the 195/60 R15s on the existing wheels. The increase in width will improve the road holding and the increased volume of air will improve the ride comfort as well. The 195/60 R15s are available from most Indian and imported tyre brands.
