Even my JK's keep getting flat, I was thinking as they are 3yrs old they must have lost their strength. As the latest flat was due to internal webbing cutting out.

aditya:: I donít get it, why should there b any speedo error? But if there is, itís no big deal. If there is a drive error then I will not go for 14". Is there a mileage drop due to 14" tyres?
When the Turbo can have a 14" with 165/65 I donít see any prob as the other components on V2 & Turbo are the same.
In fact Turbo was initially launched only in DLX version & my Indica is also a DLX V2 NA.

greenhorn:: I am not for Apollo & Bridgestone tyres at all. Have had bad experiences on both.

Seen Yokohama & Michelin yesterday, can you suggest the better of the two.
Also can you guys suggest the best alloys available and where can I get a good deal?

michelin has XM1 in that size
yokos, I'm not sure

I find it strange that you've had issues with bridgestone. My indica came with S322's stock, and have had no issues so far ( and i drive pretty roughly and through some bad roads) , except for the lack of grip while cornering.

I'm planning to upsize to acelleres eventually

2 yrs back when we were driving from Bangalore to Mumbai at speeds of 120kmph my left rear tyre bust and when inspected found that the internal webbing had given way. I brought this to the notice of Concord motors and they gave me a reason that the tyre was over inflated.
It might be true but i have been driving frequently with family and every trip i ensure i get the air pressure checked. That incident has made me against them.

What size are you planning to upsize with and why aceller's?

as mentioned before , the lack of grip, and i need something with really tough sidewalls ( narrow lane with above ground slabs = a lot of damage to the sidwalls and wheels. my current tyres have held up fine. most reviews on t bhp also say acellere is good
