I got my tires upgraded. Finally.
I gave it a thought for over a month. Which one, 195/60/r15 or 205/55/r15?! People suggested 195/60/r15 profiling but I somehow like the broad tires. Should I have given a thought on mileage drop? If I should have, I should have when I bought a VXI instead of VDI. I love Petrol engines and I give a darn for mileage.
So, finally, I said "what the heck" and went for 205/55/r15. Got it done yesterday evening. And YOU are the first to know and see the images
. Finally, here is what I have on my car:
Tires: Yokohoma S-Drive
Profile: 205/55/R15 How is the Ride quality?
I frankly don't know which one it is. The tires, the alloys or ME. I cornered at every chance I got. Probably its the confidence on the wide tires.
The steering felt a little lighter. I felt that change of alloys made it lighter and change it tires made it heavier and hence canceled out to be LITTLE LIGHTER.
For the first time, a curve where I used to decrease the speed to 50 kmph, I cruised at 75 kmph (could have done more, but remember, this is the first day
Since I still did not drive much, I would not be able to comment on the mileage. Feel of the tires:
Road sound is Audible but it was expected.
And lastly, I have attached the Pics. So let me know how they look.
