    Need some help friends. Own a 2009 Linea MJD (1290Kg, with 165mm GC). Looking for replacement of GT3 that has successfully done 62.5k kms! One of the tyres has completely worn out. So need to change them soon.

    My priorities would be grip & ride quality, & less noise (when compared with GT3). Am looking forward to Bridgestone, and have shortlisted these three:

    - My-02
    - Turanza ER60
    - Potenza G III

    Which one should i go for? Any other suggestion apart form these? Btw, Have the stock 15'' Alloys.

    CPC2 tends to get harder once it crosses around 15000 kms and gets a bit noiser than when new. Have witnessed this in Laura which had done 16xxx kms on the CPC2.

    @avinash am using Yokohama C drives. Superb wet grip, good brakings, no noise and great comfort. My alloys are 15" too.

    There are a lot of MY 02 users too, you can check the reviews of those :)

    MY 02. Supreme comfort and ride quality. Bit less scoring on the handling and fun part. Minimal road noise too. Go for it.

    I have Linea MJD, have clocked 30K KM on it so far and the NCT5 has worn out reasonably. I am looking to change them, not sure which ones to go for. Can anyone suggest which ones would be good. Factory fitted tyre specs are 205/55/16

    IIRC zenk_888 is among the (very) few TJet owners in India who have had their cars remapped. As it is, TJet is so addictive to drive and after remap I'm sure he must actually be thinking that 32k is on the lower side!

    Guys, my right front (GT3 OEM) suffered a puncture this week and went completely flat leading to sidewall cuts (3 of them). The car was parked at work in the rain for a good 12 hours and must have gone flat soon after I got in to work. I have plugged the sidewall holes and the primary puncture (broken metal strip). How long do I have till the repair undoes itself (thanks to the rains and poor roads here)? Tread depth is just about okay, but the sidewall worries me.

    Incidentally this is puncture number 8 (1 three years ago, 3 two years ago and 4 now) on the same tyre in 4 years :eek:. I prefer driving on the right, so maybe it ends up with most of the damage...
