195/55-16 is just on borderline. May touch or may not. Depends on various factors.

Why don't u consider 205/55-15..or 195/60-15...?
Either :

195/60-15 (mileage + comfort)
205/50-16 (Drool + Discomfort) S-Drives

Time will tell, first I got to get me the car.

Hi,

"Best alloys" is a very subjective term. Go for any of the reputed brands and you should be alrite. Most 14" alloys will be 5.5j or larger. If oyu go to a tyre shop who knows his products he will give you the right rim width depending on the tyre size you go for.

5j is good for tyre width upto 185.

Was sourcing the 205/50/16 for 4.5k until recently which is like the wholesale price almost. Now suddenly it seems this "official / bill" fever is making things go berserk.

Maybe I will look towards bombay then!

Dude,

Does the grey or white or yellow matter . The "S" drive is a new pattern launched I think in 2007 in India so dont have to worry about dates.They might be 2006 manufactured.

It may be in a different pattern as well..
Co.like Michelin and Yokohama Import only those specifications which are suitable for Indian road and climatic conditions. That is why buying genuine stuff makes sense.
