@Ganges ...thank you very much
I also have the same query as @drnavins, any one here who has used 205/60 R15 on Linea, please share experience. Thanx in advance.
I'm due to change the tires,i'm looking for budget tires.
Have any one experienced CEAT CZAR H/T and Kenda KR23 ?
Will retain the same profile 205/65/15
Team, I have Punto MJD Dynamic with JK 165/80R14 which will be worn out in some time. Which will be the best choice to upgrade..? Is that the same 165/80R14 or 185/70/R14 ? If that is 185/70 will that affect the fuel efficiency and GC a lot ?
I am planning to change couple of tires for my Tjet 205/55/R16 91V.
The stock tires were GY NCT5; I have already changed two tires to Michelin 3ST.
Requirement priorities are,
1. Dry & Wet grip
2. High speed cornering
3. Stiffer side walls: NCT5 was better than 3ST; NCT5 felt better during WOT on remapped beast.
4. Price or tire life is not a concern
5. comfort or noise is not a concern
Options look limited with 205/55/R16 range.
Checked with BridgeStone select store, GN tyres, XL tyrepoint, Rao tyres
Bridgestone GIII or MY02: Stock not available with 3 shops.
Michelin 3ST - Available but I don't want it.
Yoko AR01 - Rs7150
GY NCT5 - Rs7200
Conti MC5 - Rs9600
vredestein Ultrac - Rs 9750
Any suggestions based on the above priorities?
I would opt for NCT5 for overall performance.
I have used GY Eagle F1 GSD3, I am very satisfied with overall performance. It is uni-rotational tyre, the tyre shop owners arent happy working with these ones 7500/- for 205/55 R16 - 91V
I had recently noticied alloys were bent, instead of replacing the alloys I have downgraded to 195/65 R15 91V again GSD3, with steel rims and wheel caps, tested 180+ on freeway felt no difference in downgrading (Total cost 4 tyers + 4 rims + caps + alignment 28K)
With Good Year brand I see the noise is the only concern. I always drive windows rolled up, not a big challenge for me.
@Vinothan : I am currently in the same situation as yours. After doing a lot of research in the forums, I have decided to upgrade to 185/70 R14. Today, I got a chance to visit a few shops and most of them were recommending Michelin XM2 (4500 INR) or the Yoko Earth1 (4100 INR). I am planning to get the Yoko on my car this week. See below for the minor differences we see in the speedo readings with the above upgrade.
Thanks Kr_vasudev. Checked for GY Eagle F1 GSD3; tyre shop owner had frown on his face and rejected it!!
Meanwhile, I compiled a review table from tyrereview.co.uk. But it does not have side wall stiffness data. I am trying to get that from net. Weekend visit to Whites road, Chennai might give more info.
@vinodvisha Can you please share where did u get the quote from?
And don't forget take your free digital Tyre inflator if you are buying 4 Earth 1 tyres.

I was expecting this tyre shops arent happy working with these tyres.
are you sure on the miles data compilation? I see GY are reflecting long lasting miles
Bridgestone was OEM tyres in my Palio. You have top 3 so easy to pick any now
