Default Re: Tyres for Hyundai Verna - Edit: Review of Yoko C.Drive

As of today my car's ODO reads 50815. Its time to put new tyres. Just 2mm of thread left. After reading all the posts (almost) related to Verna's tyre in tbhp, now I am thoroughly confused

Here is what I have and what I do:
1. Verna CRDi 2008 (march) model
2. 14 x 5J steel wheel
3. Bridgestone B250 tyre (tubeless)
4. Tyre size 175/70 R14
5. I do 5 tyre rotation every 5000km
6. Almost 50% city driving and 50% highway driving
7. Driving on rough roads. Sidewall took lot of brushing against rocks, footpath, corner of concrete slabs etc.

Here is what I have in mind:
1. Option to keep the 14 x 5J steel wheels
2. Tyre size would be either 175/70 R14 OR 185/65 R14
3. As I do 5 tyre rotation every 5000km, unidirectional tyre is not an option

I am not able to make up my mind on:
1. Whether to go for alloy wheel
2. If alloy wheel, then which brand, model, number of spokes. Donít have any idea on these. Will it be Lenso?
3. Which brand and model of tyre.

After using Bridgestone B250 for 50000kms, I donít mind putting the same model again. I am a bit inclined towards Yokohama C-Drive. But I need suggestion on better option.

Also suggest me whether an upsize of 195/65/R14 is advisable. In that case I have to change the rims.

My budget is on a lower to moderate range. Please help me choose a correct tyre for me. Also suggest me Team-BHP recommended tyre and wheel store in Bangalore.

I have 2008 model Verna. The car is going to complete 45K km. Its a CRDI version with standard steel rims. Now I am looking for tyre change (set of 4) and do not plan to go for Alloys and would like to stick to the stock steel rims.

Could you please suggest the new tyres and size that could fit into the OEM steel rims, yet provide better comfort and grip without any issue with handling / road dynamics.

I am on my second set of tyres on my Verna and will be replacing them this month end. My first Tyres were Michelin XM1, and now I am currently on XM1+. Will most likely change to XM2. The size I went for 195/60 on my stock rims. Have been comfortable, happy with the grip it provides especially on wet. They are noisy though.
