Dropped into Madhus today,bought 4 Neovas 195-60-14 and got them fitted there itself.
Didn't see the point in saving 400 bucks at the distributor and then running around to get them fitted.

Mr. Ravi helped me out in Nikhils absence,he even allowed me to check my results on his computer.

Overall ride quality is sexy , will wait to run the tires in before pushing them.

Those wheels look nice. Since you have used the Neovas in both 14 and 15, a detailed review in in order. Enjoy man, nice choice you made.

Default Update

A few days after i posted those pics the car's power steering acted up again,garage confirmed that the rack was completely destroyed.
Get this,a brand new steering rack for the baleno costs Rs 44,000/-.
