in 195/60/R15 i am getting Pilot Primacy. I prefer Preceda, never used Primacy.
My suggestion is take the primacy. Don't take the 195/50. They are way wrong. the error is 6.3% whereas it should be ideally around 1-3%.

205 is on the wider side but atleast 205/55 will keep your overall dia same.

I would agree with Vid here, the error is too much in 195/50. Why don't you go for 205/55? Pilot Primacy's are good tyres too.

^^ Made calls to my dealer, asking him to inquire for 205/55
Lets hope its there or else i will have to settle on 195/60 Primacy.

Thanks Vidyut, iraghava

I think I had seen these alloys at Saifee Tyres, Do they have a red centre cap with some Japanese letter on it?

That will be a great decision if you stick to 195/60/15, 195/50 would have been badly ineffective...
