HOT!
But, I've got first hand report about the Nankang tyres on the race track that the ride is good and the grip is not good.

Chetan, pls avoid posting full size images - it is a pain to scroll across to see a photo that could be showing something beautiful.

Reduce size. If you cant re-size on your system, use imageshack.us to host photos, and the upload page there has a re-sizing utility so that you can do it on the fly.

Hey Guys.
I won a Palio Stile and the Good Year tubeless tyres just got bursted on the Expressway while I was curising at the speed of just 80 KMs at 04:00 AM. Extremely bad tyres since the other two are too struggling.
I want to upgrade the tyres to Alloy wheels with Bridgestone tyres.
I want your advise as to the best quality of tyres for my car. Like MRF/ Bridge stone etc.
Can anyone throw light as why Alloy wheels are better than Tubeless tyres?

@dinoo - please post your query in another thread or start a new one if onee doesn't exist. This is only for showing off the tyres of your car.
Coming to your query, alloy wheels are rims and not the tyres. They are better than the steel rims as they look better, are stronger, lighter and do not rust. Tubeless tyres are better matched with alloy wheels and in comparison to tube type tyres, tubeless tyres are safer. It is pretty surprising to hear that a tubeless tyre burst. If you are looking at changing, stick to tubeless but get wider tyres - 175/65R14 or 185/60/R14 tyres. Look at Michelin Energy XM1 and MXV8 for comfort along with Yokohama C drives. Bridgestone Potenza GIII and Michelin PP1/2 for performance along with the Yokohamas.
