Sorry Dear , the sizes to suit your vehicle not available in Bridgestone.
Michelin, Bridgestone, Yoko all of them supplying tyres to Bagladesh, Pakistan etc. i hope Indian road conditions are better.

Hello,

I own a 2004 NHC Gxi model. The car has completed over 40000 kms. I am planning to change the stock tires. Can some1 please advice me on the brand and size of tires I should choose. Also, what would be the approximate cost of the new tires ?

I plan to use the car for another 2-3 years and then sell off. In that case, would investing in alloy rims make sense ?

Yes. It makes sense. Even more if your current steel rims are in bad shape. I would suggest 185/65 R15 Michelin XM1+. Totally comfort oriented tyres.

How about Michelin's Energy XM1 in 195/60 R14 size ?

Which one will go better with NHC ?

After 52000 kms on stock tyres, I had a blow out due to a rock and used this as the perfect opportunity to upsize / upgrade.

However being far from having computer acces too read this thread, I was in dire straits as my spare too was flat (I am stupid) !! So I took a lift to the nearest tyre dealer who happened to be a bridgestone guy !! When he knew I was from the neighbourhood and seemed to know a little more than the avg. Joe he was showing me the sensible options.

I had to cross verify the suitability of options, so a swift call to Arush (Autopsyche) confirmed that I was indeed being offered the correct upsize keeping speedo error to a min. Hence my new rubber now reads 195/60-r14.

Looks and rides nicely thought not as dramatic as Eagle NCT's . Thanks Arush ( for being the nicest person I know). Thanks T-bhp (for being the source of almost all the gyan that I need).

Cheers all!

Hi Nikhil,

Some of the dealers are suggesting 185/65/R14. Will this cause any speedo error or milage drop?

Thanks
Rajesh
