Thank you very much for your feedback!! Thanks to you and BHPian Nikhil I have decided my next set of tyres to be MRF perfinza 205/55/R15. I will be changing them in another 5 to 7k kms. Will post the entire process and my experience of the tyres.
Regards

Respected members,
I recently swapped my tires to 195/60 R15 Continental MC5s from 185/60 R15 Goodyears. There is a fair bit of improvement in grip levels and I absolutely love the low road noise. However, facing a minor issue. I feel the car pulls towards left after 80+ kmph. Got the alignment checked from ASS and as per them, everything is fine. When I checked the report, it says the caster angle limit should be 4.10' whereas mine is 4.13' which was highlighted in yellow. Is this something I should be concerned of?
