    @ shams - Have you got the GC increase kit installed on your GP, as yours is 2010 model ?

    go with 195/65/15 - My friend bought a first batch 2009 punto diesel with 195/60/R15 alloy(stock).. and while tyre upgrade chose the 195/65 .. and the car is awesome now. it has gained 9mm Gc and looks and drives good.

    he had a minor issue with rear bumper scraping the tyre, the Local mechanic took care of it by increasing the clamp distance from the tyre.

    One concern may be 195/65/ on R15 Rims might be heavy for the suspension.. Experts comments on the weight factor.

    @Abhijeet Sarkar Falken I bought 3 years ago at 4k each tyre from outskirts of mumbai as it was recently launched. Currently available at 2785 at paytm which is outstanding deal. Falken has very nice wet and dry grip.An intresting feature in the tyre called Falken Eye which shows you the wear of the tyre which also tells you that the specific tyre has a problem with alignment or weightage on the wheels. Almost 80 % of Mumbai Tfians are using Falken. I hope this helps you.

    @moksh - Thanks for the feedback. As I see there are great deals of Flipkart too, but only & big concern buying tyres online is the warranty is not recognized in this case. Secondly, we never know whether the seller will push us tyres with old mfg. date (>6 months). I believe tyres bought within approx 6 months of mfg. date are good.

    @moksh - Firstly, am getting the GC Kit installed today to get rid of my major concern of underbody scrapping. Post that, would take a call depending on gap between fender and wheel.

    Got GC kit installed. Am happy that the car behaves the same, dynamics remain same. And yes, goodbye to underbody scrapping....:)
    By General exterior looks, it does not seem much of a change, looks the same, so will stick to 14" stock rims.

    @ moksh - No doubt, tyres are steal deal on paytm. Importantly, if I buy through Paytm, what happens if they ship old tyres and what happens to warranty ??
