    Thanks Linear. I read that. and that feedback is definitely a contributor to zeroing down to My-02.

    I am looking for any issues reported so far.. understand its quite a new Tyre.

    Hi SHASHANKREDDY, Good choice, even i am looking for tyre change and have some query.

    1. From where you source the Linea RIM, Are they new one.
    2. You just change 4 tyre, that means the stepney is of 165/80 14 profile. Is it fine to use it?

    Thanks,
    Sudhakar

    Hi Sudhakar.. i got them from Concorde - Bangalore as Hyderabad dealers doesnt have stock. Yes they are brand new.
    I have sourced just 4 tyres. I will be sourcing another one in a month or two.
    You can use stepney for temporary use as there is no much difference in height with 165/80 R14 and 195/60 R15.
    Absolutely no difference in power and mileage. Grip is excellent on 195/60 profile.

  5. I found by filling 33 PSI, PLC handles as good as GT3, I have covered 7k kms so far, absolutely love the tires, I used to get deaf with road noise of GT3 now, i am driving or having nirvana in my car it self.

    36/33 is anyway the recommended pressure for 205/55/16 on normal load ie front 2 passengers.

    However I prefer to run 35/32 as i find that more comfortable and fuel efficient. but i dont think tire pressure is brand specific. its rather car, load and road specific.
  7. Agree sir, btw how many miles your tire has run? can you post some pics of it?

    I always keep telling my wife when ever she appriciates how car glides over pot holes I was TOLD to go for michilin by Dj and he is right,we are all like family here and it is like one member telling other in the family on what to buy.

    I'm humbled buddy. And glad you made the right choice. I've run 14.5k as on date.. Will post pics over the weekend.

    Two places. One in the owner manual. Two, driver side door sticker on bottom left as soon as you open the door.

    These are recommended figures. It's actually more a trial and error keeping the factors I mentioned on mind. But 30-31 is definitely on the lower side i feel.

    I've heard many good things about these tires. How much do they cost?
