    @Amit. Completely agree with the relationship with the tyre dealer, it matters a lot in handling issues with the tyre manufacturers

    Those are called the Falken Eye.

    These are screenshots from the falken india website

  4. AR 10's are quite when compared to good year, Has better road grip some times makes me to feel such high grip is not required for linea esp....negative side they do pick stones though not a serious issue.. never observed that with my stock good year tires.. I am running my linae with ar 10

    The immediate change is the absence of tire noise , a heavier steering and ride comfort. My car no longer jumps on slightest of humps as it did with the JK.

    here is the before and after picture.

    Is it the camera angle,or the gap between tyre and front fender is too huge/??

    The gap is seen here due to the uneven surface that the car is parked on.

    Yesterday upgraded the tires to Michelin Primacy 3ST, 195-65-R15., 6200/- per pc.
    Super comfort and no noise :). Did it to get the 7 mm extra GC and better comfort.
    Also the state of the roads with horrible potholes and hillock like speed breakers in Bangalore forced me to change the tyres to a higher profile.
    I preffered not to change the suspension as many said it's not as comfortable like the old one.
    Handling in city no difference observed, yet to check on highway runs.

    Where did you buy the Michelin from? Sai Iyengar tyres quoted 5900 with free balancing and alignment.
