Hey guys... Not that i mean to dampen anyone's spirits here but I've been meaning to get alloys for my car or quite sometime... However have been putting off the decision basis our road conditions...

I frequently travel out of town and many a times have suffered a dented rim.. Keeping this in mind and the fact that while roads are improving they still aint improving at the greatest pace...

Does it really make sense to have alloys??? I do realize that they are lighter and stronger than steel wheels... But for indian road conditions????

It is nice/efficient to have Alloys on highways...but at the same time u have be careful with your speeds...otherwise even Alloys cannot save u....
You shud seriously know at what speeds u shud drive at a particular stretch...

so he opened another shop down the road opposite barista behind the petrol bunk on new bel road.

which dealer do u go to?
Dude, THough there are 2 Shiva tyres around there the old one near Rahmaiha is an excellent one.
Anil's son is not SHiva, SHiva is the anme of the actuall founder and Anil was his partner for many years........ then the filmi story of making more money came up and they split........ anyways we have got nothing to do with this.........

I have had quotes from both the Shivas and they are indeed competitive.... the other SHiva tyres offer a better price on Bridgestone and can source you any kind of tyre at a better price than JC road.....

My suggestion is to visit as many tyre shops before meeting this Anil as you would not know who is what.........

Hi soumobakshi, Michelin 165/60 is a good choice for wagon r, as i myself have upgraded to the same size but from bridgestone. Is there any reason for you to decide on Aura ? This brand has very few choices on designs compared to League, HR, Lenso and many others. You will find the difference in handling and steering as soon as you upgrade, specially while cornering, control and road grip at speeds above 70 kmph etc. Please update us about your decision and expecting pictures too. All the best !

Today had been to Iyengar's tyre care one at Banashankari Ring road, They are quiet well known people and provide mobile tyre service at our door step as well. We need to call 98455-45456 to get assistance. Most of the times they will help sometimes if they are on call attending the customers they might not come, thats what they said, but they said they address almost every call they receive.

They do wheel balancing @our door steps thats amazing service.

When I checked tyre for Innova they provided best rates. Michellin MXV8 225/60 R15 cost around 5.6k each tyre, 2o5/65 R15 cost 4.5K.

They recommand goodyear they say when something goes wrong with tyre they can convince goodyear and pressurize them to replace the tyres but replacing these imported tyres is not as easy as indian manufactured tyre, thats what they said.

I hope this will help other members here to know about tyres and information.

Regards,

Ravi.

Shaju...heard that League and other imported alloy wheels do not come with a warranty and that is the only reason maybe that one opts for Aura or Neo...i am planning to upsize mine as well for an alto vxi 1.1 and still yet 2 decide whether...2 go desi or with imported ones.....

Hi;
Over the weekend I checked with Car Shringar(JC Road) for Alloys and tyres from Super Tyre Tech in JC Road. I would request you all to rate on "Flying Eagle" Alloys i did like a design which i chanced at "Car Shringar". He asked 14.5K for a set of 5. Kind of confused with the tyre upgrade. 1)1)Since i have a 2004 Wagon R LX model( no PS) will upsizing of tyre make city driving difficult.
2)Will the mileage get seriously affected. I run my Car on LPG since i drive a lot( Clocked 45k in 2.8 years) on an average 56Km/Day

If upsizing does affect driveablity I am even considering for 155/70 R13 Michelin or 155/65 R13 Michelin.
By the way which one is better, Potenza or Michelin gIII?
