@y2knirmal Tyre brand pls....
Did any body used 195 /70 14 on stock steel rim of punto?
Replaced the ZLOs on my Punto today to Continental MC5 195/60/R15. The ZLOs had done 39K and had little tread left. Got the tyres changed from Madhus in Bangalore. Price = 5450/- per piece + 750/- for alignment/balancing = 22550/- . Got buyback of 500/- for the old tyres.
Initial impressions are good. Improved comfort and grip levels, lowered tyre noise. Will be doing a long drive soon and will provide a detailed feedback. Ride comfort has improved quite a lot as I could make out while driving on the flyover joints on the ORR.
I am planning to change my Fiat Punto Evo Active tyres. I would like to get alloys on.Now i have no clue for which brand to go for tyres or alloys?For GP have heard 98 PCD was required not sure about Evo concept. Please guide?
98 PCD is a must for Fiat India cars. Little tough to get 98 pcd outside. IMHO, you should buy the original alloy wheels from Fiat to make it hassle free regarding the PCD issue.
Guys I shifted to Vredestein Sportrac 5 since Dec 2013, have driven over 41K and must say have been fully satisfied ( Maybe more then that) .... tyres are still good to go for another 40 K easily ... One thing that I did religiously is Tyre Shifting, balancing and alignment at regular intervals.... My recommendations would surely be Sportrac 5
@cgujral what abt grip and breakings in wet condition....
Can you please guide me about the performance, durability and suitability of GoodYear Eagle F1GSD3 205/55 R16 (91V) for my Linea T-Jet 2012 model (2011 manufactured). Our road conditions are rural (country side) type and wet climate more often, where Jeeps work better. I liked the tread design (unidirectional) in these tyres. My Tjet has already leapt about 37K kms.
Please respond to let me decide.
S A SHAH
Eagle F1 are slick tyres, not at all advisable on bad roads. These are also Single directional tyres which means you cannot use a tyre on the left to the right side plus keeping a same spare tyre would be a night mare.
If you are keen to be with GY, I suggest NCT5(has been a OEM for C,E class, Skoda Superb and plenty more) and also GT3.
Personally I didn't find any issues except a slightly higher tyre noise but it is a Quality product and cost wise it is a definitely it's worth the money.
My Punto just clogged 72K, I changed my 1st set at 40K even though it had a considerable life of over 5K and I would change my tyre again at 80K, and so far the tyre thread is good for another 10+K.
On my Palio, I've had NCT5 (185/60 14) for little more than 46K then I've downsized the tire size to 175/65 R14 with GT3..
Can anyone advice if i can upgrade to 205/60/R15 for my Linea? Presently I am with 195/60/R15 but would like to have wider tyres. Since mine is 2012 model with higher GC should i go for 205/55/R15?
