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.

Hello Rakesh, the cars that you have selected are great. Both of them are great to drive and offer almost equal amount of power and torque. However, since you are going for a petrol variant, we would suggest you to go for Amaze S CVT iVTEC as it has CVT on offer which is better than the AT offered in Dzire. Though Dzire would be easy to maintain. The engine performance, NVH levels and everything is better with Amaze. Click here to check out the comparison.
I wanted to buy the maruti suzuki vitara brezza car but i confused only in the performance and engine response of this car, some reviews showing the engine has little bit of noise while driving it and the pick up of this car is not good as expected. So please suggest me the engine and driving performance of this car in city and highway.
Hey, it is great that you wish to buy a new car and the car that you have selected in indeed very nice. However, the power that is generates is less, it is lesser than Ford Ecosport which offers better competition. Though the amount of features that you get with Brezza is great but you are concerned about driving pleasure, you should choose Ecosport since it has got better power and looks great too. If you drive mostly in cities, you should choose Brezza. Click here to check out the comparison.
