Why not try for these alloys:
Team-BHP Classifieds - VTEC ALLOY 14 Inch RIMS (FAT FIVES) - Powered by PhotoPost Classifieds

those rims are used and price is high and not in bombay. as for tyres does it make a difference official or not

No, I'm not a dealer. By difficult I meant that ever since Yokohama officially entered the Indian market the supplies for the grey market have dried up. Hence, you might find it difficult to find C-Drives in the grey market.

hey abhinav..

im not sure weather you nhc is a vtec version.. if it is i would go for 195 section for grip (i have 185/60 on the stock vtec rims and it struggles for grip at times) but keeping in mind the Rs 3000 budget per tyre it might be advisable to have 185 sections

However I have heard that changing the tyre size would do good to the handling of the car.

Some people recommended 185/60 R14 while some recommended 195/60 R14

Please Tell Me what tyres should I go for. The Tyres i want should be a max Rs 3000 Per Tyre

Thanks

Jesal,

I had a similar problem by 30K kms. My car felt 'old' and horrible.

Then I got the 40000 kms/24 months major service done when my car had done 30K kms and was about 26 months old.

It worked as a charm. Got the 'new' feel back. Ride quality improved and definitely does not feel as if 'it is going to fall into pieces'.

Back to topic:
My S322 tyres have now done about 38K kms, 22K of which have been on highways. The tyre shop guys say that they are good for at least 8-10K kms and that there is no need to change.

Anyway, I have been making enquiries and got good feedback on the Michelin XM1+ and Bridgestone S322/B250.

I have now been recommended the Pirelli Cinturata P4 since I am going to Ladakh. Here is the link http://www.pirellityre.com/web/catal...logo_desc.page Feedback on the Cinturata P4 will be helpful.

On upsize:
I have been getting excellent FE on my current tyres and am happy with the handling. Also I am not sure how the increase in section width from 175 to 185 - 195 will affect the FE and handling and how will they perform on the wet, slushy and gravel tracks of the Manali Leh highway.

To summarize:
- Which tyre
- What size

Thanks in advance for your inputs

Looks like the earlier link does not work. This Pirelli link might be slightly better PIRELLI -

Click on Cinturata for more details.

Will be almost impossible to find here. And as for the upsize, if you're worried about FE, do not go wider than 185/60 or 185/65 R14.

I saw the tyres in a shop near Milan in Bombay and hence the query.

I was going through the Pirelli site and it looks as if the Cinturato is a basic tyre and the P6 and P6000 may be better options in this size from Pirelli.

Well offtopic. I was thinking of going for 15" Lenso Samurai, anyone else onboard the forum with 15" on a NHC ? I just wanted to know the feedback.

Hi

Has anyone upgraded the NHC ZX with the Brio alloys? They seem to be the perfect fit for the stock size. I have been hunting for them for quite some time. Haven't been able to source them thus far. Any leads??
