Sir, I have bought a used car. It's a Ford Ikon, 1.4 TDCI, Diesel engine (Fiesta engine), it had run 38,500 kms. It has 13 inches wheels, tyre size 175/70/13.
Now, my enquiry is that, can I change the wheels to 14 inches size from the existing 13 inches size, tyres of 175/70/14. What will the advantages & dis-advantages be, in case I do the mentioned changes. Ordinary wheels or alloy wheels, which are better, for the change of wheels of 14 inches size. Pls do give me suggestions...

It is always recommendable to use the size of tyres mentioned in specifiations of respective cars.A much change in dimensions would affect wheel bearing life and also vehicle dynamics.A size next to recommended size can be tried but one much check the dynamics like steering, drive comfort with respect to steering etc.
