Can we do a sanity check, Shan2unu ? Your car has done 45000kms, my guess is that you might replace it in the next one-two years. I really would not splurge too much unless you are doing some serious racing and using the car full time. I recommned the NCT's - does 80% of what the others do for 90% of normal driving.

Once you have a new car in your radar - worth planning for an immediate upgrade on purchase.

BTW I think the original BS tyres on the Vtec suck after putting the NCT's on

Shan2nu, the guy on the ring road has a whole bunch of them... and in all sizes. I saw them, so, they're definitely there...
P.S. how much more do Yokos cost?

195/60 r14 were around 3.5k but that was including the charges for wheel alignment. paid 14k totally for a set of four plus wheel balancing, alignment and a puncture repair kit.

Well, i don't think i'll be selling ym car so soon. Infact, don't be surprised if i don't sell it at all. LOL

And about the NCTs, i think the GIIIs are better in every way. They are perfect for the kinda driving i'm used to and, i'm pretty happy with the way the stock BS tyres have held on so far.
