Well, it isnt great, but the XM1+s in that size are ridiculously priced anyway.

My friend is looking for tyres for his honda city dolphin shape, I guess size is 175*65*14. I suggested him A-Drive, but dealer confused him with XM1+ price difference is just 600 but he is more concerned about the life of tyre. He need it atleast for 45K. So which one is best buy, plz suggest.

Default Hi All!!

Hi Guys/ Nikhil ,

I have booked Dezire VDI and about to get the delivery in next 15-20 days. I have a plan to swap the wheels an Tyre with a upgrade in size immediatly after getting the delivery.

What should be my Tyre size on Dezire Alloys of 14inch . I think 185/70/14 is what ZDI has but what other options in size without affecting adversly in FE/Grip/Cornering/steering/braking and else.

I have XM1+ on my M800 and I have done 40K(in one year) so far . Mostly on Highways and city roads with 29-30psi Nitrogen. I am very much in favor of these Mich's and the ride quality was far better than stock MRFs which lasted for 63K .

Also I saw PP2, Primacy LC alongwith XM1+ on Mich website which is better and what qualities do they have ?

XM1+ in 195 size will be pricey compared to 185.
Do better go with 185, else you need to see other options "out there"

Default Which one is better?

Just checked in Mich Website for all Upsizes . Actually iraghava has mentioned the upsizes in some thread , according to that , I have taken the below snap. I would be shifting to alloys also from Maruti which ZDI has.

ZDI has 185/70/14 size tyres and I am looking upsize for my VDI as 195/70/14 or 185/65/14
Pls suggest which one is better for my Dezire?

I feel the competition will be in first two which are marked in Bold.

cheers.
I got the same tyres with exactly same configuration for Rs.4200 per tyre in April'09.

I was told by dealer there was some promotion going on and he passed on benefits to me. One honest dealer..huh?

Quotes from all other dealers were standing at Rs.4500/tyre

Mobike008, there is no point in comparing April 2009 prices with July 2010 prices. Prices have gone up like crazy.

Ricky, get the 185/70 R14. It's the perfect size for a stock Swift/Dezire.

Done Nikhil !!
It will be 185/70/R14 size. I personally like XM1+ as I have them on my M800
What are good options like PP2/ A Drive / Primacy LC / Conti/ Yoko etc. other than XM1+? Otherwise I have alredy decided on XM1+ on new alloys swapped with the stock steel wheels.
I want tyres to be good on FE/Grip/Cornering/steering/braking .

I replaced Turanza ER60s on my Santro to XM1+ this weekend. They were ~3.5 years/30k KMs old. This is what I've observed so far:

1) PS had become a bit heavier when I had changed my stock tyres to Turanzas but its now lighter again. +ve

2) XM1+ are a lot quieter than the Turanzas; a lot. +ve

3) Ride is a tad smoother. +ve

4) Cornering is NOT confidence inspiring at all ! It feels like cornering on the stock tyres now. Turanzas were way better in this department. -VE

5) Haven't tested the braking yet, so no comments.

Size has remained the same: 165/65/R13

Regards,
RS

Thanks buddy... I was looking for a post which actually compared these two tyres. Both are good tires in their own way, and I was leaning on the Turanzas. They seem more durable, better handling and breaking. The XM1+ has it's benefits in low noise, more soft rubber, better ride. I'll most probably be changing my Alto's stock ZVTS with the Turanza.
Edit: Why did you change your Turanzas at just 30k? Did they give you problems? If yes, what problems?

Yes. I got fed up with frequent punctures and loss of air pressure lately. I guess this happened because of extremely bad condition of roads around my place till some time ago.

Default 145/80/R12 cost in bangalore

I went through the whole thread, but was unable to find the cost of XM1+ 145/80/R12 in Bangalore. Can someone help me out?

What are the places where I can buy them in Bangalore.

I went to Reliance car accessories outlet near south end circle and they quoted Rs.2250/tyre when told I want to buy 5 (this cost is inclusive of fitting and balancing charges). Do you think this cost is reasonable?

I don't know about the cost but don't go to Reliance AutoZone.

Nikhilb2008 has his store in Bangalore, you can check with him.

I want to change tyres for my NHC to 185/60/R14(XM1+) and price seems to be around Rs. 4175 in Hyderabad.

Is this good price?

Thanks.
