I don't completely feel that the suspension is stiff at front and soft at the rear. But overall the setup is not as stiffly sprung as maybe some of its German counterparts, but neither is it as soft as the Hondas. In my case, the lower profile of the tyres compared to the original supplied have made the ride more firm.

The tyres don't hit the wheel arches. The 185's are also good fits, but I chose the 175's as a balance between grip and fuel efficiency. Unfortunately there seems to be a short supply of the XM1's, hence I had to opt for the A.drive's.

The set of 4 alloys cost me Rs. 16500. And 5 tyres in exchange worked out to Rs. 9000.

Hmm. I remember the Lenso Samurai on your i20 were offered to me (15") for ~16k when I was looking out for them. For 14", this seems just a little high. ANyway, looks good and the deed's done, so never mind.
