Hey Ishan, your car has done 100K+ Kms and you have changed the tyres 5 times? Isnt that like ~20k kms per set? I mean I find that figure quite low. Normally, tires should easily last almost twice that much. Correct me if I am wrong?

It will be quite difficult for Ishan to settle for a diesel after what an OHC does to an owner! *damn* I can imagine the plight of giving her up.

Yes, you're wrong Nishant, my car has done over 170k kms. (not 180k KP!) and so 4 sets have averaged around 40k kms. each. Which given my usage & driving style is pretty decent & includes a set of Goodyear's which I had to discard after 30k kms.

Oh that was just a thought, drove one again & even though it's stupendously quick, Diesels are not really my cup of tea.
