As every enthusuastic car lover, after i booked my ANHV 1.6 CRDi, i had to wait till i got the beauty home last wednesday evening. Unfortunately, i had to travel out of of town for office work and managed to spin the wheels only yesterday .. 1 week, no one even touched it as i wanted to upgrade tires and put some nice alloys.
Finally, after a long wait i am now upgrading tires. I was too keen on going ahead with 16' alloys but after putting 205/55/R16, we all realized that it might not be perfect fit and will add to probable discomfort on loaded car. I also thought of 195/55/R16 instead of 205/55/R16 but, unfortunately thats an odd size and only Bridgestone makes it, that too for ANHV. Others don't have same spec on offer as yet.
After much of an internal discussion with my bro and friends, considering various alloy designs, look of the car, tyre preference (MICHELIN
) & feedback, i am going ahead with the with Michelin Primary LC 195/65/R15 and set of alloy wheels.
Two hours of waiting to get the alloys from stockyard till finish look.. worth the wait. I just loved it.
Cant say much about the stock tires as i drove it for mere 15 kms, post delivery. After alignment and balancing work, ride feels really smooth with minimal road noise. My dad is yet to see those but i am sure he will be fine with it.
Hope you will like it. I loved it. Will post some more clear pics on sunday.
Cheers to TAI
