    Hey Pran, Sorry I'm late here.

    Nice choice with those 15" 15-spoke wheels.. :smile: The enhanced GC with 195/65R15 should be good. The first impression after putting on the alloys would be a slight sprightliness on part of the car which wanes of after a day or so as you get used to the new response.
    Congrats. Be sure to let me know when you are here.

    I think the stock size is 195/60 R15, but u can easily look at 205/55 R15, if ride is not of prime importance to u, going beyond will just be waste of money and it wont serve any purpose apart from enhancing the looks further a little, also note that the steering will become a little heavier once u put on wider rubber. Going by the fact that u have a 1.2 I think u should stick to 185/65 R15 this is he closest u can get to the stock size and have the least amount of error(.294%) to b precise

    Any thoughts as to which brand of tires u want

    @Roy : thanks! Will definitely meet the next time I am at TVM.

    @shashanknathani : the stock size is 195 60R15 , if you are not so keen on warranty then you can go for out of stock sizes, 195 65R15 from my little experience of 1 week is ok. puntom of TFI has 205 60R15 on his Punto. Both of us have not faced any issues so far. But being petrol I would think twice before going for 205 since it might affect the mileage and as Phew mentioned the steering might get tighter.

    Completely depends on what purpose should it serve you, whether u want a silent and comfortable tyre or one with high levels of grip and noise, only if u give full idea of wht setup u want can we suggest sir. What size have u chosen upon???

    there's nothing exceptional in yoko's till u opt for something like advan-neovas and all, so u can look at Michelin primacy LC/XM1+, gr8 tires for the money{super silent and very high grip levels, (far superior to yoko c drives in all respects b it grip or road noise or comfort)}, at best if u want yoko's then go for A-R1 drive

    personally I would recommend(strongly) u primacy LC, I'm currently using them in our car(Fiesta) and can assure u that u wont be disappointed, they are super silent and comfortable. Also note that being a 1.2 better stick to 185/65 R15 for best results effeciency, power and grip wise.

    U still have confusion, u got my no.

    Pran,
    I picked up the same set a couple of weeks back!! Good choice :)
    My tyre guy fitted the stock nuts itself. He was confident that it need not be changed.

    I was thinking of Continental PremiumContact2 195/60R15. Primarily because of the tyre life and grip on wet roads (my car does not have ABS).... Will give you a call
