Don't want any scratches on my car - considering BK Tyres location in the alleys of Lajpat Nagar - one can hardly pass thru that area without a push & a shove

Thanks

My AUDI is finally wearing new pair/s of footwear !!! 225/50/16 Michelin Pilot Preceda 2. The Asthetic appeal has surely gone up . The ride is pretty much what it was (no compromise).

The handling I could not really comment on as there was stop & go traffic all the way....

Pics will come soon !!!


Cheers

After Trade in of my OE tyres I paid a difference of 4k per tyre. So I'd say 16k well spent The tyre price per say ranges from 8400/- to 8900/- depending on where you buy it - & yes this is with B & W.


Cheers

I have kept the OE 5th tyre (regular tyre) which is also mounted on an alloy, as the OD of the tyre is the same as the new ones.

In my experiance so far I have never used the stepney. Most of my cars are sold (whenever they are) with unused stepneys. So did not change that.


Cheers
