Yeah, they lasted for about 35k+ kms. Not too bad considering I lost about 4-5k kms. more due to an alignment issue which I could not get fixed in time due to lack of time. Not bad for performance tyres in my opinion though.

Yes, yes boys, planning for something right now. As soon as I have the money will do the change! Don't want a Dulatti from Dhanno!

1, 2 & 3. So finally go around to doing the change due to my current tyres reaching this state! Yes, those are the steel cords showing!!

4. New rubber going on, 185/60 R14 Michelin Pilot Preceda 1. Reason I got them in a smaller size is that now with so much mileage on her I don't really need the performance of the 195 width tyres & more importantly the dealer gave me a killer deal on these tyres

I wanted to try the new BFG G-Force Sport's but they were unfortunately not in stock & I wanted to do the change asap. So settled for these after the dealer sweetened the deal considerably.

Changes noticed:

1. Tram lining has decreased greatly compared to the 195's.

2. Minor increase in FE figures.

Yup, in this order:

185/60 R14 Bridgestone Potenza RE88 (Tube Type)
185/60 R14 Goodyear Eagle F1 GS D2 (Tubeless)
185/65 R14 Michelin Energy XM1
195/60 R14 Michelin Pilot Preceda 1
185/60 R14 Michelin Pilot Preceda 1

And this does not include the set of 175/65 R14 Bridgestone S322 which came as stock fitment & were replaced on the first day itself!

That & the camber angle as pointed out by VD. Also, most of the time I travel alone so more camber angle is there.
