The alloys costed me 25k , the Goodyears were returned for 2700 per tyre & the R1s costed me about 6500 a tyre.

The tyre guy recommended to maintain 31 psi across all tyres , i have no idea regarding the correct tyre pressure and would appreciate a little help from fellow bhpians regarding the same.

Refer my earlier Post @URL (Honda City : Official Review) for more information on the same.

Honda recommends having 2 PSI additional pressure on the front tyres due to the additional weight of the engine.

I get this but are'nt those pressure levels recommended for 175 section tyres , changing to 205 and increasing the rim size to 16 should be having different pressure levels than this or should i just fill them up with 32 psi in the front and 30 in the rear?

Though we can ensure a difference of 2 psi between front and rear, wouldn't the tyre pressure for the rear tyre depend on the tyre type. This query is more for folks who would have upsized their tyres

The correct tyre pressure is not based on the type of tyre or the size of tyre - it is mainly dependent on the load and the intended speed. Here are some recommendations I could find from Bridgestone: URL

General Rules:
1. For Highway driving where you expect to drive at speeds in the range of 120 kmph add more pressure, about 2 to 4 PSI (and not exceeding 40 PSI)
2. Running on lower pressure causes faster wear out and also reduces Fuel Efficiency.
3. The recommendation is to add additional pressure when you expect to run the car on full load (all passengers/luggage etc.)
4. The tyre pressure should always be checked when the tyres are cold
5. There is no Ideal number here, the recommendation is to experiment with a variation of 1-2 PSI +/- and then determine the optimal one based on the usage of the individual.
6. There is usually a sticker on the car door that provides the official recommendation/reference.

Maybe folks like Nikhilb2008 can add more and guide us further.

Did they share the revised prices? By how much have the prices gone up for the VX Variant?

When I booked it was 13.54, then reduced to 13.32 and now around 13.45 So looks like 13k hike on-road cost. Anybody getting any freebies at all? Will I be lucky to get any atleast by quoting that have waited patiently?

I'm sure the wait must be quite agonising. I must consider myself lucky to have received delivery of VX-CVT on 28-Feb after booking on 9-Jan.

You can get much better alloys for much less if you go aftermarket, but if you really want the OEM ones you can get them in 12-15k range too , a lot of people change their alloys first thing after delivery and the OEM ones can be sourced from these aftermarket vendors easily.

Folks,
Taking delivery of my VX-CVT tomorrow. It's been a long wait from the time I booked. (10th Nov).
Been sleepless (like most of us before delivery) and carless having bid aideu to the trusty 8 year old City Zx. Have a lackadaisical sales advisor- so wish me luck guys- so that it goes all smooth. Plan to start an ownership thread and considering no CVTs are available for TD- will be more than happy to answer any and all queries from fellow Bhpians.

Congratulations, Random! I'm glad to see another fellow BHPian who has gone for a VX CVT. I had taken delivery of mine in end Feb and have clocked about 1400kms now. Good luck with your new car.
