ARUN.V & Whenasked, I have asked him to share a contact for you both to try in Bangalore. He said he will check and get back. In case if he forgets, I shall check again tomorrow and come back.

Guys, he responded back that the tyres aren't available in Bangalore. Said he will organize for the same and come back to me. So please do wait for a few days until he comes back

Check there is a 155/80 R14 also available and is just the right size of tyre. This was told to me by my Fiat Friends.
