I was talking about the turanza's on my lancer yaar.

The G-III's are even noisier than the turanzas on my car.

Yoko's officially have no option in the size you want Akshay. Stick to Michelin unless you find something very nice in the grey market.

Guys are Turanza's that bad. My main criteria is ride and i want tyres with fantastic ride, out of GIIIs & Turanzas which is better.

I dont want the FE going down by 15kmpl on 225 Turanzas.

Ah now I see 225's is what your looking for. In which case my above comments on teh turanzas don't apply to you.

I am talking about the Turanza ER-60 whereas your talking about the ER-30.

The ER-60 is a made for india tyre with the strengthened sidewall and harder compound.

On the other hand the ER-30 is a comfort oriented tyre mainly for large sedans like the accord, Skoda, camry.

N_C has the Turanza ER-30 on his skoda RS.

how can that be. even the bridgestone site says er60 not available in more then 195/xx r14. er30 is available in 205/65 r15. maybe your dealer is confusing the two.
