    An update after a long gap. Linea is doing its job without much fuss. One thing I certainly don't like is the strength of the alloys though they look great. It can get bent quite easily and the lower profile tyres are not helping either.

    A couple of milestones.

    49th Refill: 310.1 kms - 21.47 liters - 14.44 KMPL (MID 15.1 kmpl) - Average Speed 17 kmph - Rs. 54.82/- per litre from IOCL - Opposite to Woodlands hotel.

    51st Refill: 317.2 kms - 17.78 liters - 17.84 KMPL (MID 18.3 kmpl) - Average Speed 29 kmph - Rs. 55.39/- per litre from IOCL - Opposite to Woodlands hotel.

    52nd Refill: 303.6 kms - 20.58 liters - 14.75 KMPL (MID 15.2 kmpl) - Average Speed 21 kmph - Rs. 55.39/- per litre from IOCL - Opposite to Woodlands hotel.

    Now, the other update is changing the tyres. I have shortlisted the Hankook Ventus V12 K110 205/55 R16 tyres. The pics are attached. Any views on the tyre is welcome.

    I have considered these tyres. But the main issue is I am geting the Hankook ones for around 6300 and the rest of the breed Yoko, Michelin, Bridgestone are in the range of 9000 bucks. More over, I seriously want the tyre which can handle the rough terrain. I dont mind if the new set of tyres last for 25K kms.

    What are you looking for?
    Hankook is tough tyre but its hard and trust me you dont want to be anywhere close to it if you want comfort. I'm running on MAXXIS and i feel they are the hardest tyres i've come across till date and the comfort factor suffers just as much.
    You Will not get comfort with this hankook your eyeing.

    Can you check PLC, XM2, Yoko DB series (no A drives please).
    Michellins are known to give good comfort and yoko is also pretty much there.
