UPDATE: Got myself four Michelin XM1s 155/65 R13.

Special thanks to kpzen and iraghava for helping me out so much... And also all others who have helped...

Price: The tyres cost me around 2300 a tyre (2k+ was wrong price that the lady at the desk gave)... And 125 for one neck... As i fitted the tubeless on stock rims...

The shop was pretty good, and overall the expereince was good... My tie road end was a bit damaged, so that made alignment hard... Got it replaced in warranty... Free of cost from popular vehiles here... And got the car aligned properly...

Vibrations above 70k, that i cmplained of beofre is not there now... And... easily took it to 125kmph without any problems...

Ride comfort: The ride comfort it also very good... The rough patches dont filter into the cabin... The road potoholes do filter in (Its no luxury car), but there is no sharpness to the thuds as there used to be... Coupled with the soft suspension, it provides very good ride comfort... Am happy...

Grip: I havent tested it yet... Doesnt matter much cause wagonR is not for stunting... Road noise seems be be much less than my old tyres..

Will update about the tyres and the tyre buying decision soon... Since i checked out almost all makes, before buying michelin... (may help some guys, i hope)...

Once again, thanks kpzen and iraghava...


SOME MORE DOUBT THOUGH: 1) How often should i check the tyre pressure??? (Cause its tubeless on stock rims)...

2) How important is aligning the castor angle???
The alignment guys said they only align the toe angle and camber angle... and castot is changed by replacing some bush...

Keep checking within every 4-5 days n then note if any difference is there...According to that u will know how much time the tires are retaining the air because it depends on the roads, valve n the sealing around the rim which can vary from car to car....

Default Here we go again...

Again. need help.

The car is having fair amount of noise when it rolls over bad surfaces. I dont mean rattles, something like a small 'thug' like sound (More of a persistant murmor) when its rolls over bad over.

Bad thing is it more heard clearly when it moves over bad patches of road, than big ptoholes.

The sound seems to be coming from front left. Have got michelin energy xm1s and the rolling noise is very low at high speeds, and smooth roads. So, Am wondering if its the suspension. Also, am having this feeling that only front left suspension is having a slight bumpy nature. (might be a feeling cause of this irritating sound)

Once, i asked the dealer service centre guys to check the suspension, and they said its all fine. What do i tell them to check?
