Question Sumo Non-PS tyre suggestion!

Guys,
My '97 Sumo without Power steering needs a new set of tyres.
The Sumo's ride is inherently hard and she is mainly used in the city.
My current set is MRF Zigma GT with size 195/R15.

'tyrestore' recommended the soft-compound JK Brute.
I tried for these Korean brands.But, this size is not available with any of them.
What do U suggest?

Hmmm.... not many options in that I think. Why don't you go for a 205/75 R15 (based on the size you gave me) or the Sumo standard fitment 215/75 R15.

205 tyres with non PS will be like driving a bus.

Who'd like to feel my biceps??
On a serious note, 205/75/R15 sounds good. Give me the options!

Taking 'tyrestore's recommendation on the soft-compound , I've picked up this bridgestone dueller.
Bridgestone India Private Limited

Did you check out the Wrangler ? Had them on the bolero & found them to be pretty comfortable & soft.
