Default Good tyre shop in bangalore...

Hi all,
I will be mostly booking the baleni Lxi soon....so wanted to know some details on the tyre upgrade....
Are there any T-BHP recommended shops for upgrade?
I just walked into one shop to get the details...and here is what they quoted :
Goodyear Eagle NCT5 186/65/14 tubelessin exchage for stock - 5500 (5 tyres )
Alloys Aura 14" 16-18K(depending on range in exchange for 13" steel rims )
Is this a reasonable rate? Anybody done it recently at a better rate?

The dealer is quoting 16K for 13" alloys+13"tubeless ( dont know the brand/configuration for either ).

Another question....
Can we have the 14" tubeless on the 14" steel rim? Any specific issues?

This is a wild guess....
How about having the above tubeless tryes with tubes on steel rims?
The tubeless tyres should hold air in case of punctures and the tube should hold the air in case of bent rims....Is this possible?

If your the kind who can strike a good deal/bargain check out hot tracks. He has a good collection but many people have had bad experience with him ($$$, not quality)

Car Shringar also has a very good selection, Opp. Lifestyle. And they have a new outlet on Mission road, "Audios & Alloys".

Good prices, but bad tyre choice. I would rather go with Potenza GIII, the tread pattern is not as appealing as NCT V but the tyre is much longer lasting and performs well even when old. The goodyears on the other hand are great when they are new, but age quite fast.
