    Wise decision. Do report about the performance once you drive on highways.

    Nice. Let the tyres settle down in the next 50-100 km's and then they shall give you the true feedback.

    Cheers.

    Tyre dealers are smart. They quote less for tyres and then charge separately for the nozzle. A way of getting customers. When I ask for the quote, I make sure they provide me a proper quote.

    But if your older tyres are tubeless then there is no need to put in new nozzle ?

    The Palio D is on the same set of nozzles since 2005.

    I bought the nozzle loose for Rs 50 two weeks back for an experiment. Rs. 200 per nozzle is a rip off.

  7. I got a chrome covered nozzle at 6 rupees a piece!

    Re: What tyres to buy??

    They did change the nozzle when I changed my tyre. But it was not charged separately.

    I have used the following tyres on the Punto. Good Year GT3, Bridgestone MY02 and Continental Premium Contact 2.

    The CPC2 is the latest entry and I have done 6.5k kms on it. I have to say, out of these three, CPC2 is the best compromise of comfort and handling. It is not as hard as the GT3, nor is it as soft as the MY02. I take corners and do lane changes as I did with the GT3s. No nervous situations. And after 6.5k kms, I do not see any signs of wear on them. They have seen it all, traffic signal GPs, Expressways, no-mans land, granite gravel, rain, heat and slush. No tyre squealing whatsoever. The GT3s were a racket in comparison, squealing at every hairpin bend at Tirumala.

    I would go for CPC2 again, given that it lasts the distance expected!

    That means CPc2 is similar to Yoko Avsdb.
    I'm used to now with my02.loving it.
