Well , In the afternoon when i was leaving for bandra @ Saifee Tyres for the installation of the S-drives i made a phone call to confirm the order ( i had already confirmed yesterday evening ) . the Person told me that he had installed the tyres of the same size and make in another laura which had come to him in the morning & he was not having more tyres of the same size and make available ( i.e. S-drives) I had no words to say , well atleast he should have called me up and confirmed wether i was coming or not .Though he must be one of the biggest names in the tyre market in mumbai but for me he dint live upto his commitment , so i am really disappointed woth him. So i am going in for Potenza G-IIIs (215/55 R16) @ 6.4 k but not from Saifee but @ Super Tyres (Mulund)-(inclusive of allignment & balancing)

The Ride quality is the same ... no improvement ... but the high speed stability (which was always there) has improved marginally ... overall GIII's are performing great overall ... (havent driven above 50 kms yet , < 140 km/h , after the new tyres put on .)
