    Default Tyres for Suzuki Alto.

    Salam fellow pakwheelers.
    I have decided to change my Alto's tyres from general xp 2000. My budget is 20k. My option is Dunlop Digi tyre eco size 145/80/R12 or 155/70/R12. If anyone has used euro kompact kindly share your experience.

    Kindly recommend me the size. How much will they cost me per tyre? (Dunlop Digi tyre and Euro Kompact).
    And also a genuine dealer in Karachi that sells them.

    Digi tire Eco = general in grip
    and euro compact is also part of general line up
    both are not good i have had bad experience with Digitire Eco and generals

    Recomended are
    Yokohama DNA ECOS 165 70 12 size
    Hankook H 706 same size currently using them in my alto
    Hanjiii Kaa Storeey Eehh !

    How's Yokohama in terms of grip and softness? I need soft tyres as Karachi's roads have a lot of bumps and potholes. And also whats the cost price, will it cover in 20k?

    And also is Yokohama available in 155/70/R12 or 145/80/R12? I'm not willing to go for 165/70/R12 as they are too broad and will reduce my fuel economy which is already pathetic.

    Because 0 grip in water
    Very harsh on suspension
    Not enough grip on high speeds

    Yeah but thing is 165/70/12 will be eqaul in height to stock 145/80/12
    If u want to go for 13 rims better get new Yokohama dna ecos 155/65/13
    Why as alto came with 155/65/13 internationaly
    16k for tires set and 2k for steel rims
    That would be best for u

    I'm not willing to go one size up. I'll visit the market today and search for Yokohama.

    Installed Brand New Bridgstone Sneakers 145/80/R12 on my Alto a few months ago, costed me 3500 x 4 = 14Ks. Very good economy tires! Used 10K Kms and they are still good as new, dry and wet both grips are impressive! Road noise is less too, however on some grovey roads it does get a little loud. Overall great value for money

    Yes they are comfortable tires! Just the right amount of balance between stifness and comfort

    Went to the market today, got Dunlop Sp touring T1 145/80/R12. So far I'm loving it's softness and grip, not bad at all.
    3600 per tyre (14400). I only got 1000 for the old and pathetic Generals. Total: 13400 (Balancing was included) and 800 for computerized alignment.
