Every dealer whom I spoke with suggested not to go with BS. One of my friend got the S322 as Stock on his new Alto K10 and within 1 year he has already got 3-4 punctures in them
. I also recieved very negetive feedback on S322 on a lot of forums. Can you please let me know which tyres you are using.

Since my alloys are 13", the dealer suggested to go with 155/70 which is the default one. Although he will further comment when he will see the alloys.
He has suggested that if possible 165/65 upgrade will give better handling and braking. But he cant confirm that without seeing the alloys.
I got the alloys from Snapdeal.com for around Rs 12,424 for set of 4. I asked in the market before and I was not getting anything below Rs 16,500. Expecting delivery of the alloys tomorrow.
I am getting the tyres at Anand Trading Corporation located on Pune-Mumbai Old Highway at Dapodi, Pune. The person is very informative. He was initially suggesting the XM2 but when I said that lot of my driving happens on bad roads immediately rejected them and told me to got for CC5. He only told me that they were launched recently in India and are esp made for bad roads. He is charging Rs 13,800 for set of 4 plus Rs 100 per valve for 4 valves. So total Rs 14,200. Fitting, Nitrogen and Wheel Balancing free of cost.
