If you ask me, I'd suggest you go for the Bridgestone S 248 -145/70 R 12.

I've had them on my previous M 800 and they did a good job for 20,000 kms without a single puncture before I sold the car. My current Santro has the same S248s and they have clocked a whopping 56,000 kms without a single puncture and I am planning to change (though they still have good tread left in them) them in a few weeks.

My Alto runs on MRF ZVTS but they are 145/80 R 12. I am very satisfied with their performance but would liked to have had the Bridgestone S 248 when I took delivery of the car.

Cheers,
gpa

WOW! That is some distance! I do not think I would have ever reached those KM's on my first set of JK's!

Let me see how much the current set gives. But with what is happening now with me not there, I do not think even this set can be taken into consideration! :(
