    After two and half year and 46.000km of driving it is time to Change the tyres however I am bit confused.

    Should I go with 205 55 15 profile? What are the pros and cons of this size?
    Apollo Acceller is only in my budget if I want 205 55 15 (Rs. 5400).

    Checked few Tyres

    1) Bridgestone MY02 195 60 15 = Rs. 5600
    2) Michelin Primacy LC 195 60 15 = Rs. 5910
    3) Michelin Energy XM2 195 60 15 Rs. 5980
    4) Apollo Acceller 205 55 15 = Rs. 5400 (need this size just for looks. I love broad tires.)

    Now need to decide....

    Michelin Primacy LC? Any reviews

    Kedar I would suggest stick to OEM size, 195/60 is a very decent size. Up sizing will hit your fuel economy. You can also try MRF ZLO.

    Kedar - Also consider 195/65 R15.

    Talk to Ramjn and Srida before deciding on ZLO

    205/55 R15 Yokohama S-Drives. You'll love them for sure.

    Sure I will check out MRF ZLO as well.

    Kiran your comments on S Drive sidewall. They are soft compound and please let me know about S drive's life.

    Channa I am ready to compromise on FE for 205 profile. How much it will reduce any idea?

    No one is talking about Michelin and MY02. :-(

    Michelin Primacy LC is being replaced with Primacy 3ST, better tyre than LC. Stick to stock size, best size for Punto.

    1) Apollo Acceller 205 55 15 (selecting only for size and its price)
    2) Bridgestone MY02 195 60 15
    3) Michelin Energy XM2 195 60 15
    4) MRF ZLO 195 60 15

    I shortlisted above tires finally ;-). Can you please help me decide the tires.
