Question Widest tires on a 09 Alto?

Hi guys

Which are the widest tires I can fit on a '09 Alto (1.1 engine)? I have the problem that the OEM tires are way expensive and the 175/70 R13 tires cost about half but I am afraid they won't fit because of the higher sidewall.

The width of the tire and the height of the sidewall are related by the profile - without knowing the original tire size, I can offer no advice, other than to suggest you find a tire size calculator and start punching the numbers in.

A 175/70R13 tire has a sidewall height of 4.82 in and a total height of 22.65 in - you may able to find a 175/60R13 tire which would have a sidewall height of 4.13 in and a total height of 21.27 in - it's been a while since I've seen that size though.
