Nankangs are doing a perfect job, much better than anticipated. I see actually no reason for people to come out with pitch forks and hunt people down who use or say nankangs are good, for the price they are a steal.
An Audi a6 replaced all its tyres with NS II, they are not as bad as they are portrayed.

Hey buddy, the nakangs are behaving perfectly fine like any other so called "premium" brand tyres. These are great bang for the buck!

Try the Nankang NS20. Its new in the market I've been using them on my car. Lesser tyre noise compared to NSII.

How good are ASA alloys? How does one find out if the alloys are fake/ CHinese or good but cheap?

Also what places have good alloys for the Duster in Koramangala/ HSR area in Bangalore?

If possible get a fifth one too, you might need it if any of these get damaged.

Thanks for the tip mate, will see if I can get it. The possibility of the wheel getting damaged was something I had actually overlooked . Working on a tight budget and have a few more changes planned so I hope I can get this done .

Cheers,
Balaji

Rims: 15" 6.5J Matte Copper/Bronze Borbet RS rims.
Tyres: Continental CPC2 205/55-R15.

Tried a friends 16" 7J Magline Forged rims on my car as well. Those were shodded with Yokohama A-Drive R1 205/50-R16.

I wanted to go for 16", but lack of tyre options made me stick to 15". Getting 17" would have meant much lower profile and harsh ride.

Swapped the stock Apollo tyres and the steel wheels with fatter rubber from Yokohama and added nice Onyx rims to enhance the character of my new Grand i10.
