Already purchased the Turanaza ER 300. I am satisfied. I feel it's an improvement over the stock Apollo's in every way. Steering feel at dead centre is the biggest improvement along with less body roll. Time will tell the rest.

But for some reason I couldn't find the UTQG ratings anywhere.

Thanks for the suggestion anyway.

How much would a Conti MC5 cost, for the 195/60 R15 size? Have received a quote of INR 5400, but don't have a clue on how much it actually costs - no info available from Conti's India site.

Looking to finally get rid of the noisy Yokohama S Drives from my Fiesta and move onto Conti MC5. Also have Michelin PS3 in mind, but only if Conti does not make a good business case.

They were available for INR 4800 a tyre, last year, at a store.

Aravind - Are you planning for a tyre upgrade for your Fiesta?
If yes, 195/55 R15 is the right size for 1.6S.

Please go for Continental MC5. I have them on my Ritz and they are awesome. I had Michelin Primacy LC earlier.

I heard the MC5's are currently retailing at Rs 5500/- in Chennai.

Thank you Prodigy07. I do know that 55 profile is the stock size for the 1.6S, however with the suspension being stiff, and with this being my only car at the moment, it gets a little uncomfortable at times. The ride is always firm, and in many cases - harsh. Hence decided to shift to 195/60 for now

And here is the summary of the price info I gathered from few of the tyre dealers I could speak to -

** Michelin prices are lower, as they are with a 12.5% discount - an offer I have got through my company
