For upgrading my knowledge, can you explain what are the consequences involved in fitting a tire in a wider rim.

@bhavit46. Great ! Just be careful with prices at Calcutta. I mean you know the scene at Mithakhali. He He. You can also go to Karnavati Motors for better rate.

Thank Nisarg. Calcutta Motors is like a second home to me. I personally know them for past 10 years, also my grandfather had relations with them from their shop at Khanpur. So i think the prices for me and for other people are different.

For your car, I would recommend the 195/60 R14 Conti CPC2. Only because it's a powerful car and needs more grip than what the XM1+ and ER60s and ?Yoko A Drives can offer.
Thank you. Very helpful.

Hey guys! thanks to all of you for your suggestions. I have upgraded to 195/60 R15 Michelin Primacy LC. The tire costs Rs. 5075 and got a refund of Rs. 2000 for Goodyear GT3 original spec.
I cannot comment on the ride comfort as i have hardly driven it, i will post a review shortly.
Thanks a lot.

hi the tires seem a bit more expensive in Ahmedabad than in Mumbai. Got mine for Rs 4700 a tire about 2 months back with a free bag. Regarding the lenso the one's which suit the anhc perfectly are the SC 01 and the SC 05 . both are available in the 15*6.5 category. the 7 inches might really stick out on the sides. Take some pictures and post them and update us on the ride.
