His Baleno rides on 205/50R15, that's why he can't use stock suspension. I use stock suspension, therefore I stayed with 14" and 60 profile.

205/50R15 is way too performance oriented, the Baleno stock suspension would only last few months.

Well,they do make noise.But it has reduced to a great extend,and wont be that irritating at all.Apart from that,the GSD2s are excellent tyres.But so are the G3s.As you main priority is braking and high-speed stability,i suggest you go in for the G3s.They will live up to you expectations.And i can count on the 195/60/14s as i've driven on those tyres.

Montoya the best way to clear all ur doubts regarding tires, their wet and dry grip, ride noise..etc..e.tc.... is by going to www.tirerack.com . THis site has got all the information for all the possible tires u can think, again its mentioned with the prices and sizes...! This site is a pure bliss to surf.

Shan2nu, even u should love the site....!!

yeah Yokohamas are good tires, infact they look very good, when placed on the rims, coz...they have a much stiffer tire wall...doesnt round off like most of the other tires do! So it kinda makes ur tire profile look less I also saw the pic of ur yokohamas and yes they are surely a good buy!!

I've already been through that site. Unfortunately the G3s aren't listed there. I was mighty impressed with the Potenza G009s (it beat everything in it's class) but, decided to go in for the G3s. And i don't regret that decisson one bit.

Hey BHpains. i am no way intrested in the Yokohomas. Only intrested in Goodyear and Bridgestones (on you peoples advice)
Hey would love to know about the gIIIs from you(read your review) Does the tyre lock up often and how is the high speed stability?
Hey X thank alot for your input i am counting on you and shan and so going to check out the tyres BUT shan says that Potenza G009s are the best in class. so should i consider them as well. Thanx Jigarmuni i will check out the site. Also Just saw the sire some eagle f1 supercar tyres also there which i doubt will be available in 14inches..
http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires....le+F1+Supercar

Hi montoya,
The City does not have lock up problem. I think it has more to do with indica's dynamics and weight rather than the tires. Even the MRF ZVTS was prone to lockup. What i meant in my review was that for the indica there is not much straight line breaking difference on dry

Hey SS,
thanx a lot.
Really helpful info..
well tyres are kept inflated still they show up i guess one tyre is puntured as i have noticed that quite a few times the pressure tends to get real low in less time will have to get i checked..
Where are the outlets of BPCL 97 octane anywhere in new Mumabi. reliance is total crap they have adulteration had tried it on 1.5 Exi once the normal reliance fuel and that lead to super knocking..
Well if surbo is crap then what shall i go for as the reason being the New Citys bonnet is real small to fit any performance mods be it headers or cold air induction kit as well and no chance of a turbo..

Hey Monty,
Speed 97 is available thorugh thier outlets in Colaba and Bandra.In Colaba,its the pump opposite Tendulkars.And in Bandra,the pump is a little ahead of the BED Lounge on the linking road.It is really amazing.I've been using it since a month now.The only dis-advantage being the price.Its 55rs/ltr.

About your second query,Surbo is all crap.Its just a pure waste of money.Anyways,check it out yourself at this Surbo linky.

jigamuni,
Go for a 205 width potenza GIII. Make sure that profile is such that your sidewall height remains almost same. Sha2nu can provide more help.
