    Hi @pdash,
    The link u posted is for xm2. However mine is primacy 3st. Both are different ones. Now coming to price comparison, yes i did. Madhus said 6150/tyre and empire said 5950/ tyre. But as i got a coupon from michelin on tdp price, hence got the same price from both 6150/tyre. But empire was near to my home and got good reviews about them, so done it here.

    Ok,, Incase of coupon code will dealer apply MRP only?

    How are you feeling the differences after switching from 14 to 15 inch. Is the ground clearance improved?

    No, they have a RCP rate which is less than the MRP. So the discount is applied on RCP rate. Yes, ground clearance and grip also increased. Just feeling a bit less initial pick up. Have to drive with more RPM. Let's see after few days.

    I must say 15inch suits punto profile.

    Yes, the GC increased a bit. But if you are upgrading from JK to michelin then the major difference you realise is the smoothness on pot holes and noise reduction. Yesterday while driving @100 kmph applied a sudden break, felt a little skid of rear tyre. Need to check this again and will confirm. And not sure how come the turning radius reduced. It's much better now. Fuel economy dropped i guess by approx 1 kmpl compared to previous case. This is again mostly bacause of the initial stress on pedal. Experts can confirm this.
