I've got OE 5 spoke alloys with 205/60 Falken Ziex tyres. Somehow i managed to wear them out by 25k kms. So i'll be gettin new tyres and also new alloys hopefully.

Offtopic - How much do u think the OE Skoda alloys can fetch? Rs.20-25k atlesat, cuz they are 40k showroom price

Ours
Fiat Palio 1.6 GTX - Goodyear Eagle NCT 5s - 185/65/R14. Improvement in ride quality and handling. Stock alloys

Mitsubishi Lancer 1.5 GLi LX Liquid Range (long name) - first put Falkens 195/60/R14 but terrible ride quality and changed them after 500km to Goodyear Eagle Venturas same size and ride quality, handling and basically everything has improved by leaps and bounds. Have put TRO 10/12 spoke alloys in black silver colour.

Toyota Corolla 1.8 H2 - Stock alloys and tyres Changing to 205/60/R15 Goodyear Eagle F! GSD3s or Potenza G3s. Looks and safety and ride quality are of importance. How are appollos? Please advise

Honda Accord 2.3 VTi M/T - Stock Rims with 205/65/R15 Goodyear Eagle F1 GS-D1/D2. As my dad used the car, i really didn't feel the difference as i didn't get a feel of the org. Turanzas.

Mercedes Benz E270 CDI - Stock alloys with stock 225/60R16 Goodyear Eagle NCT5's. I am happy with them as is my father.

Ours but now in company use -
Ford Ikon 1.6 ZXi - PCW 5 spoke meaty alloys with 185/60/R13 Michelin Certis

Ford Ikon 1.6 ZXi 2001 - Stock steel rims with wheelcovers with stock new MRF Zigma 175/70/R13

Contessa 2.0 D 1988 model - 165/80R13 Appollo Amazer XL.

These are of cars that were with us and then shifted to our comany duty or cars that are currently with us.

which ride do you like...the goodyear .or the bridgestone???
Infact since the cars are also different so it is not an apples to apples comparison....but still curious
would love if you post your comparative study on both the cars someday !!!

I have the 255/70-R15s on my tata safari and the 185/65-R13s on my honda city. Both cars use bridgestone tyres. The tata safari ride is really nice especially off road. Both have alloy wheels.
