    Can i get 205/65/R15 ? (i want more GC)
    how about the dealer,is it easily available everywhere in india ?

    6K thousand for 4 tires thats really good,how much KMS was tthe run-in period for your tires ?

    205/65 R15 wil touch the wheel wells. You can use 205/60 R15 without any issues

    yeah 205/60 would be good.. But then again what i would suggest is if you go in for tyres with hard sidewall (like GT3, maxxis, some BS) you can lower your profile a bit more as well and that way you can get into the range of 16" or 17" alloys...
    The advantage is if you find a good set of alloys they will look stunning in 16"/17" anyday than 15"...

    defnitely with those tires as well looks awkward as well,so me dropped with that profile 205/65/15.
    so next will be 205/60/15 or 195/65/15

    i guess pran is running on 195/65 without any issues.. 205 60 wont bring about any change in GC, just a look good factor..
  9. Sterling will become touch heavy with the increase in the width of the tyre.
