Default four options for MARUTI 800 ...which one is better

About Car- MARUTI 800 STD 97 Model with AC . has done 62000 KM .
I travel about 750-900 per month which is about 60:40 city & Highways ratio.
Fuel efficiency , good ride & SAFETY are important. look is not of my priority. I have these options.
All are 12" only as it seems 13" rim will reduce my FE & bit bumpy.
  1. Goodyear GT 770 145/70/R12 ( Rs1275 each )
  2. Goodyear GPS 2 145/70/R12 ( Rs1400 each )
  3. Goodyear TUBELESS GPS 2 145/70/R12 ( Rs1450 each )
  4. Goodyear TUBELESS GPS 2 155/70/R12 ( Rs1520 each )
For TUBELESS planning to go for12" RIM( 650/-)- wheelsIndia Brand.
is that OK.pl let me know which one seems to be good choice ?
Any other better option kindly let me know. TIA.

I suggest you go for GPS2 tube / t-less depending on where you drive. GPS2 is a much slower wearing compound compared to GT770+ which was launched just to give the consumer a lower priced alternative to GPS2.

What I mean is depending on your regular route,make sure you have proper tyre repair shops en route as an ill equipped shop or a repairman who doesn;t kow how to proprely fix a tubeless tyre wud ruin it.

I would recommend you go for tubeless and use 'Slime' or 'Airseal Tyre Milk' to puncture-proof your tyres.

Personally I found the GPS 2 to be a comfortable tyre. Bridgestones are also very good, do give them a try, they are possibly the best quality tyre made in India.
Go for tubeless on new rims, the difference in the ride quality is worth it, and educate yourself about tyre repair procedures.
