I have been planning to upsize our Estilo's tyres as the puny 145 width is spoiling the ride drastically. Since it's lady driven [owned by my cousin, driven by herself] [me and my brother drove 80% of the mileage
] and poor condition of road, we are not planning to upgrade to 14 inchers [still 14 incher upgrade is some time away, apollo accelere sh-81]. Vxi's 155 don't make much difference in aesthetics and I am really impressed by the 165 width indica wheels. But something other than money is stopping me from this upgrade. Dunno what it is .
Today, I was in search for allen bolts to fix my R-15 mirrors and I happened to pass by some second hand tyre sellers. Was amazed to see imported offroad tyres [Goodyear and BF Goodrichs] there. Just inquired about Indica wheels and he showed some half worn tyres. Asking price was 400
. Then he offered something else. Set of 5 almost new Indica wheels. Offered for 550 a peice and discount if I am taking the whole set and more discount if exchanging the old set. Now I am really really confused to whether go for that or not. My budget is tight and is reserved for my Dio and still I wanna buy that [still something is stopping me].
The deal is 5 brand new-like Bridgestone 165/65 R13 for 550/piece and discount if i take the entire set and more discount if I return the old set. So even if I can make it out for 450 a piece, it won't cost even the price on new single tyre.
There was XM-1 single piece, new one [looks like used as stepney]. Pricing criteria is based on vehicle model and not tyre brand or speed rating
[The place is Power House Road in Trivandrum, mini chor bazar. They claims parts are off from total loss claimed cars, but people say most of them are dismantled stolen cars.]
