Baleno Zeta has the tyre size 195/55 R16. But the spare tyre has the size 185/65 R15. How does it match. What are the meaning of the numbers indicated in tyre size.
The spare tyre is often of a smaller size to save costs. It's the same reason why not all spare tyres come with alloy wheels. This tyre can be used to get moving again in the event of a puncture, but it is best to repair the full sized tyre, replace it and then use it as soon as possible.
What's On Your Tire's Sidewall?
With a little explanation it's easy to understand what all of the letters and numbers mean on your tire's sidewall. The numbers are indicators of the size, type, and performance of the tire.
Tire Type: The letter "P" at the beginning of the "Tire Size" tells us the tire is a P-Metric tire, referring to tires made to certain standards within the United States, intended for Passenger vehicles.
If a tire size has no letters at the beginning, this indicates a Euro metric tire. P-Metric and Euro-Metric tires may have different load capacities.
The letters "LT," either at the beginning or at the end of the tire size indicate the tire was designed for light trucks. Vehicle manufacturers equip some light trucks with "LT" type tires. These tires generally require higher inflation pressures than passenger tires.
Consult your owner's manual or tire placard for the recommended tire size and inflation pressure for your vehicle.
Tire Width is the width of the tire measured in millimeters from sidewall to sidewall. The first three-digit number in the tire size refers to the tire width. For instance, in a size P215/65 R15 tire, the width is 215 millimeters.
Aspect Ratio is the ratio of the height of the tire's cross-section to its width. The two-digit number after the slash mark in a tire size is the aspect ratio. For example, in a size P215/65 R15 tire, the 65 means that the height is equal to 65% of the tire's width. The bigger the aspect ratio, the bigger the tire's sidewall will be.
Construction: The letter "R" in a tire size stands for Radial, which means the layers run radially across the tire.
Wheel Diameter is the size of the wheel measured from one end to the other. It tells us the size of the wheel that the tire is intended to fit. A size P215/65 R15 tire is made for a wheel with a 15" diameter.

Maruti Dzire is the compact sedan based on the Swift hatchback and among the top-selling cars in India. In its latest 2017 avatar, the Dzire has got a very sensible and proportioned design. Quality of the interiors has also taken a massive leave and Maruti should be credited for liberating more cabin space inside. In fact, 2017 Dzire is now one of the most spacious cars in its segment.
Under the hood, Petrol Dzire is powered by 1.2-liter K-series engine making 83PS/113Nm while the diesel Dzire comes with 1.3-liter DDiS motor putting out 75PS along with 190 Nm of max torque. Both of these engine choices are available with 5-speed manual as well as automated manual transmission (AMT).

If we talk about the comparison of the shortlisted cars, then these cars are playing well in the Indian market and we really appreciate your choice.
Maruti is no doubt the leading auto player in the Indian market. Of these widespread cars, Maruti Swift hatch has been a game changer for Maruti in the hatchback segment since its launch in the market. Maruti took a big leap by launching its premium hatchback – Baleno.
The Baleno offers good fit and finish compared to any other car in the Maruti portfolio. The car looks beautiful from the outside.
The Baleno offers the perfect balance of performance, features & quality.
The Baleno is a step up from the Swift in terms of what it offers. It’s perfect for someone who is looking for something more than the Swift and at the same time wants to retain the peace of mind of owning a Maruti Suzuki.There is nothing new about the engine as it has been used by Maruti since a long time. While the engine feels refined and linear in its power delivery it feels just like a Swift when it comes to performance.
The engine certainly feels better, than on the Swift, due to the lower weight of the Baleno. It has a typical diesel turbo-lag at the lower RPMs, but has decent punch on the move.
Both cars will no doubt hold excellent value in the resale market after a usage of 5 to 7 years.
Both the cars have same engine so you'll find similar performance but the difference here is the availability of the features. The Baleno here is better featured car from inside and outside too and on the top of that, it looks modern too.
Moreover, the new model of Swift will be launched in the next year. so, we do not recommend you to buy the ongoing model of Swift. Hence, our pick will be Maruti Baleno.
