Privilege coupon?? That's seems interesting. TyreX will certainly be my next stop for alignment.

Got tyres for my Swift. Got Hankook 185 * 70 *14s. Got nitrogen filled for free. But they charged me for alignment. The tyres plus alignment cost me 18K. No discounts. Extra charged for payment using debit card.

Service people were really friendly. But they had only Hankook and Continental tyres. Work was fast and clean. Although I didn't care much for the way the service guy zooooomed off in my car after fitting the tyres.

Alignement work was top-notch. The ride quality significantly improved after their work. Would definitely go back there for alloys.

Can you post the pics, especially the thread pattern? Do they have 205/50/R15 in Hankook? I havent seen this brand in cars, only in SUV's. How is the performance? I'm basically looking for comfort and less road noise.

I am not sure. But they do have a large stock of Hankook brand. Can one fit 205/50/R15 on Swift? If you are upgrading to those specs, please please share the pictures.

Performance is great. Braking and handling are much improved. It maybe because the previous tires were almost completely worn out. However I am happy with the new tires. Road noise level is pretty much same as I had experienced with stock tires.

P.S:- I know the tyres will look better on alloys. I am planning to put alloys in 2 or 3 months.

Thanks for the pics. It's not late. I will be changing in 2-3 months only. Started searching for the better brand now itself.

Yes, I currently use 205/50/R15 Yokohama S Drives. It performed really well. Clocked 35k kms and another 5k-8k kms left in them. I shall keep searching for more brands and keep you posted.

BTW, keep me posted when you plan to buy the alloys.
