Rudra, could you give me your opinion on the Goodyear 185/65 R14s, since your Optra had these tyres.

The only thing that I can say staight off is that the stock ones were a lil noisy. Other than that I can't really comment on anything else (since I was in the driver's seat of the stock VTEC and in the rider's seat of your car - can't compare handling and stuff)!!

Perhaps you can give me a better opinion of your new tires.....the stock ones on the VTEC were Bridgestones rite?

Yep- dspite wider tread, steering lighter asnd smoother, ride is improved with btter bump absorption. Would advise a local tyre like this considering the car will be spending time on rough roads - compund is harder and more durable
