    buhahaha, im sorry but it i didnt understand where to laugh.

    the 155/80r12 being used in Alto, is being used since Altos launch, and before that the same tire was being used in Suzuki Khyber,

    The Japanese Alto comes with the same size to. Its just a shopping trolly, to travel from point a to b, not something ure using to make high speed turns,

    Even a Japanese Vitz comes with 155/80/r13 tires, same size tires that are offered in Cultus.
    Get over the fact that Xli lacks power windows, Its an Xli because it lacks thoose features or else it would be a Gli or an Altis if had all the goodies.

    Try to narrow down your requirments. You want 1) Grip..? 2) Low noise..? 3) Fuel Eficiency..? 4) Long Lasting...? 5) budget ..? and many many more factors.

    You prioritize the factors and then you'll get the best answer

    Sp sports are hard tyres,lasts long,no grip,damages suspension early
    ECO are soft having less life but with grip,gentle on ur suspension,and if tyres are soft they save ur suspension from making dug dug khar khar noises,
    Close ur eyes go for eco 165/70R12

    yet i agree bridgestone is the best of all...yokohama gets teared very easily...specially the bridgestone latest MY_07 is the perfect fit if size is available
    go n see the international tyre rating n then u ll see..
