2) good friends friends palio 1.1L 195/50R15 Plati rims
3)cousins swift-D LDi 205/55R15 same rims as palio.

Go to Sai Iyengar on Lalbagh road or Milvision (Yoko Distributor) on Krumibagal road they will give you the tyre at this price.

I faced the same problem, most of the accessory shops in Banglore try to rip you off by quoting high prices.
Thanks Bharat. I shall check out these places.
