Question Tyres For My Vtec

I wanted to Upgrade My Tyres
My current stock tyres ( 175/65 R 14 have clocked 16000 till Now)

What Size should I Go (14 Inches due to the alloyz) for to Improve Breaking without much change in ride quality. And Which company tires should I go For?

Is Potenza Gud enough ? and Also I would Be Grateful to know the cost for a set of 5 tyres!

get 195/60 r14. potenzas are good b also look at yokohama s-drives and michelin xm1s if you want a quieter and more comfortable tyre.

Lots of shops in Karol Bagh. I think it is arya samaj main road. If you're in sadar bazar area try the shops behind novelty cinema.

195/60/14 is a good upsize considering that you keeping the rim size the same. Same upsize done on my car, 'm using pirelli p6000. VERY sticky tyres and minimal road roar unlike the potenzas.

yup - same size, yoko ES100s on my 6 year old 1.3 - amazing improvement in grip, top speed (confiidence) and way quieter. I can only imagine that the S-Drives are even better.
