    I bought it from Tyre Empire. He said he was giving them for 'no profit' :eek: and no other dealers were ready to give Yokos for less than 4,250!
    I think you too got them for 3.8K??

    What tyres to buy??

    I don't think zlo are available in that size. Try Bridgestone as well

    I went in for the Yoko's AVS DB550...Super silent as compared to the GT3. Cost me INR 5500 per tyre. Got INR100/tyre for my old tyres..Got a free Jabra Bluetooth device as well:cool:

    185/70 R14 is correct size, take either XM2, or A Drive. Accelere is also good choice.

    How long do the GT3's last usually?

    I just drown from Mumbai to Pune and felt some vibrations in the steering so took it down for a round of WA & WB whilst I was Pune. Was surprised to see that a 25K Kms run tyre had cracks in it. I was like WTF!!! Tyres are just two months older than the car which is Nov2009 Punto.

    Anyways, what's done is done. Looking out of tyre options between Michelin and Bridgestone. Have narrowed it down to PLC Vs XM2 Vs RE88 Vs MY02 Vs Eccopia Vs ER300.

    I am partial towards Bridgestone because that's what is running on my Palio as well.

    I would prefer to stick to the stock Punto size of 195/60-15. Considering the car is primarily used in Mumbai city and a once in 2 months Mumbai-Pune-Mumbai run, I would prefer to have something with strong sidewalls to withstand the horrible Mumbai road. After plonking the MY02's on my Palio, I am not too sure about their sidewall strength.
