Hello Sir,
I have Tata Indica with 175/70 R13 Pirelli P3000 Tyres.
Unfortunately, One of the tyre just got struck in a pothole( a huge one) as it was not traceable during night and the front left tyre got damaged with a approx 12cm cut on Sidewall.
I have Temporarily shod it with Spare tyre of 165/65 R13.
Now my Questions are
1) Since rest three are 175/70 and one 165/65, so will it make any difference in tyre lives of all and ride?
2) For replacement, Should i get New 175/70 R13 tyre or used one as the current tyres have already completed 20,000kms approximately.

It is a pity you had to experience such hardship. THE ROTTEN GOVERNMENT IS SIMPLY COLLECTING TAXES TIME AND AGAIN AND THIS IS WHAT TO EXPECT. Even when a vehicle is taken to another state again the Life tax is paid. We will never improve in this Gods own forsaken Country and roads.
Well coming to your question do not use any old tyre remember the tyre is being sold as old only because it has some problem or it may be to old. use the same size of new tyre but only if there is too much difference in the wear keep the tyres which are similar in the front wheels. Though driving for some days with tyres of different size in the rear will not do any damage.
