I was going thru the Yoko ES 100 thread and it says that the 100s are 4-6 yrs old and at the end of their life span.

What other tyres can I get in the 195/60 14 that have good performance (Grip, grip wet grip, less noise and gud ride quality) and are not too expensive- say, 3000- 3500 bucks per tyre?

Where in Delhi can i find them? Karol Bagh? Kasmiri Gate?

Thanks,
Puffy.

Hey Friends,
An update from my side.This weekend upgraded to Yokohama S-drives 195/55/15 on Lenso Samurai SC-01 alloys(white ones).Somehow I liked the looks of the white alloys once I've seen one Baleno with white alloys at Satya's shop while getting my ICE done last to last weekend[OT: got JBLamped and JBLsubed my baleno actually]
My intial impression with the Yokos,
The ride quality is not that bad as I was expecting it to be.Bit harsh then previous one but that's quite fine.
Handling/Grip is just awesome,car was very stable during high-speed cornering during my to Nandi Hills drive yesterday.I was able to climb much much faster then I used to be.Breaking is very effective now,you know the sudden speed breakers on NH-7, I was easily able to stop on time.
Noise: I didn't noticed that much yet.Similar to earlier Birdgestones I think.
Steering fill : I didn't felt that steering is heavier , not something that I could notice.
Looks : aah, do I need to say something
And another thing, I'm somehow having a feeling that the ride is kinda smoother on a smooth tarmac then the previous tires.Why is that so ?
And one con of these tires is that I felt the steering actually to be lighter while doing more then 140Kmph(I guess around 150 or so). I didn't felt that on the smaller tires.That was kinda strange for me.What can be the issue,or may be the NH-7 tarmac itself is not so good ?
Till now not seeing any wobbling due to the bigger center hub dia of the alloy then Baleno's center hub . I've not yet put any hub-centric Rings.Just keeping my fingers crossed.
Overall, quite happy with the decision till now.
Regards,
Kaushik

I too dont have any problem until 140kmph. Still thinking if I should put hub centric rings. Aveo was hub centric with stock wheels, with lenso it is now lug centric.

Kaushik congrats pal. Since you haven't added any pics lemme assume this is how your car looks now.



BTW don't be too paranoid about anything now.Simply enjoy every bit of that driving experience. My friend Mallik with the white baleno is running the same size as yours and hasn't had any issues.

Hi Riju and Nirmal, thanks guys. And Riju, it was your car which was my inspiration ;-)
Friends,
Here are some of the pics, sorry I couldn't resist myself doing some photoshop. Do bear with me for that as these were kinda hurried shots without any thought and car was not clean at all.But I hope you'll like it..
