I think this is a new scheme. I bought XM1 185/65 R15 3 weeks ago. I did not get any free gifts.

what is the price range of the same tyre with size 205/60R15 and would there be any problems to upgrading to that size(i mean will it touch the inner side wall or what) i know by looking at other threads that 190/60 R15 is the perfect upsize for swift.

sorry for being offtopic

Ek dum Jhakaas Sunny ! Have not worn it yet but will do the day when I start jogging and shedding my weight ( which will never come )


Jokes Apart - it is great actually - the top part of the trksuit is more of a Jacket which can be worn over jeans in winters.

That is an incorrect upsize for the Swift, correct options are 185/70 R14, 195/70 R14.

Jithu - Yes 205/60 R15 will foul with the wheel wells when the car is loaded so please avoid. Correct upsizes in 15" are 195/60 R15 (best option IMO) & 205/55 R15.

Price range for the Energy MXV8 is Rs. 4600-4800 for 205/60 R15 & Rs. 4200-4400 for 195/60 R15. Prices might differ slightly in Cochin, so better to confirm with a couple of dealers there.
