Whats your opinion about stock size and a change to Michelin XM2
Any difference in comfort ?
I am sure Michelin will last longer but what about comfort?
Any difference from Appolo Alnac ?

Default Re: Volkswagen Vento : Tyre & wheel upgrade thread

Michellin xm2 will be a bit more comfier than alnac. But at its price, you are still getting a low end Michellin

If comfort is paramount, look no further than 195/60 Micgellin P3 ST

If it is ultimate performance you are after, then check out 195/55 R 15 Hankook Ventus v12 evo

Preferably both 195 and 205
I saw Yokohoma S drive 205 in one of the shops, I am very much concerned about the width
I dont want my vento to look like a Thar 😬
So pls update me before i upsize
Attaching a few pictures like you've asked ;
Size and make should be self explanatory from the pictures.Taken with a mobile phone camera only ,so please don't mind if it's not as expected!
They have already run about 5000km and I am pretty happy about them !

It fills the wheel well to some extent. The tread is after 12000 Kms usage.
