Unhappy

hey guyz,

i'm just upgrading my sumo tyres from nylon to radials. since i don't have power steering in my car, i'm planning to put in 195/80/R15 sized tyres.

i just rounded off to go for either MRF or bridgestone which are suiting my budget. MRF is available for 3400 bucks and the bridgestones cost 3550. my major needs are longer life, stablility and safety during high speeds(100-120 kph).

i have decided to go for the mrfs since the weather in chennai is hot . the roads aren't smooth either. lots of pot holes everyday.

what do u guyz suggest?

MRF ZVRL. May be 265/70 R15. They say it can be fitted in all SUV. Check it out. May be you need something like 225 kinda size. Surely good for Indian roads.

Nitrous, I'd suggest going for 205 or 215 mm Bridgestones. The ones you are talking about are the duelers, arent they? They are amazing and long wearing tyres.
