More pictures for sure, by end of this weekend(& report).
I am very thankful to my friend Rajesh for helping me through while guys were modifying the car accessories. I was attending emergency case of accident of my newly married friend hence was not thier when car was getting altered.

I can tell you that, if you drive my Kencha you would forget Swift DDis or Palio GTX. I am glad I stretched to buy this one.

Size : 195/60 R14- Thanks Prajesh/iraghava/rks and others for this.
Make:- Bridgestone Potenza ER60
Reason:- No stock of Michelin as they were about to recieive upgraded XM1 Plus a week later. So had no choice but select the alternative.Though dealer told that if I am not happy with the ER60 he'll replace it with XM1+.
Alloy: Aura- though I did'nt like most thier design but I am liking the ones on my wheel. Again its my friend's choice, and I am appreciating it now.

Now I need help for knowing,
1. Right Tyre Pressure for this and
2. Is ER60 a good alternative to Energy XM1

Cheers
Anju

PS: Buy back of stock was for 1500 per peice and Er60 for set of 5 they charged around 18.5K.
For alloys: 21K for set of 5. All with B&W

The tyre should be Bridgestone Turanza ER60 not Potenza.
Check the recommended tyre presssure. I think 30 psi for all tyres should be fine.

Prajesh sir,
My error - It is in fact Turanza ER60.

But you didn't comment if its a good alternative for Energy XM1.
My only concern was ride quality with this Turanza tyre.
So no time to sit in rear seat as I am driving all the time !!

Cheers
Anju

If u have an option of exchanging your Turanza ER 60 with XM+ then please do take it.
Turanza ER60 is not a horrible tyre but XM+ would always be better than them for sure.

Yeah KP's right, comfort levels of XM1 are very nice.

Turanza are average on tarmac but they are amazing for when there is no road, lots of gravel and loose rubble. The tyres never seem to wear out or show signs of damage.

I am looking at upgrading my friend's getz tyres. The stock size is 155/80-13.

What I have found out is that the pre-facelift GLS versions and the new CRDi have 175/65-14 whereas the new GLS has 175/70-13.

Alloys are out of the budget.

If anyone knows of anyone changing the 14" wheels please let me know. I would prefer 175/65-14 which can later be upgraded to alloys.

Else my only option will be to go for 175/70-13 michelin XM1/ Yoko A300 on current wheels.

Congrats for your new buy.

There are so many people out there selling Alloys and tyres.

Be careful before putting in any make, Afterall the Rims and Tyres are most important safety aspect of your car.

Check with the only Authorised Bridgestone Performance Club in Bangalore-Shivas located at New BEL Road, after Ramaiah Hospital Signal.

They will be able to give you the best deal,

Dont trust any other brands apart from Bridgestone/ Appolo / MRF /Dunlop and CEAT.

Any tyres apart from the above are not tested on indian roads.

You can speak to Mr Anil Grover on 9945056567 (REF: Raghavendra VW Bug)

I've been taking his services since 1999 for all my car tyre requirement.

He'll be more than happy to serve you.

Do Let me know.

What are the options in 175/65-14?

For 175/70-13 I'm getting Yoko A300, XM1 and apollo acelere.

I can even look at 185/60-14 if i get 14". I know lots of options in that size.

The current goodyears are getting too many punctures and one of them has the steel wiring coming out as well. This is after 15,000kms.

Can't wait for 14" rims. Will be going in for 175/70-13. Michelin has the XM1 without the energy in that size. Yokohama need to find out the cost of A300. Apollo has the aceleres as well.

So for regular use over bangalore roads and long life which is the better amongst these. VFM wise it's the apollos but if they are just a few 100 bucks cheaper then not really worth it.
