    I am going to put new tyre; I have got 15" Alloy Rims so please help me to select which size and brand is best for o5 Exi;

    Size Options I am looking at;
    185/65- R15
    185/60- R15

    Please suggest the Brand on basis of;
    1- Reliability (Resistanc to puncture, burst etc)
    2- Less road noise
    3- Grip(As Exi don't have ABS so it should not skid)

    My suggestion would be to go for 195's from Dunlop ECO. This is a very good tyre and I think the only Orginal Japanese made in the market.

    This tyre should cost you around Rs 3250 in Rwp/Isb market.

    @aamiriqbal
    Dunlop is a good tyre but sometimes it gives trouble of having buble spot on the side wall if use aggressively.
    This is only my observation as I have changed many tires in my and my other relative cars.
    & by the way a 195 R15 wont cost less than 4000 if orignal.
    i would suggest better go for YOKOHAMA 195/65/R15 the DECIBAL Series.
    Have put in my uncle Exi 2005 model and he is much satisfied than before. the tire in Karachi costed me abt 4100.
    Dont go for less than 60 hight as it would reuin ur suspension with hard bumps and increasing noise in cabin.
    195 width would increase some hight with smooth, grippy and luxury drive.
    Thats all I have experianced after being involved in many cars of my family and my own.

    Thanks every body for ur valuable advice;

    @adnanblue
    I agree with u for this bubble formation problem, one of my friend experienced it with new tyres..
    With 195/65-R15 speedo meter will app. 6% less speed as compared to original.. What about 195/60 ??

    @striker
    Please share your experience for not using Dunlop Eco.

    @mhaq786
    Sir, If speed o metre is ur problem than I would suggest 185/65/R15. It would balance the offset of speedo meter.
    And please I beg u not to go less than 65 hight as I have tried them on my VTi and it was like banging ur head in the bumps. So better be safe and make ur car safe.

    yar i hav been roaming in the market for the past week in search of good tyres in reasonable amount.hav go tyres for my self...but i wud like to tell u wats the condition tyre market.

    dunlop,bridgestone nd yokohama....all of these 3 r being smuggled.although the tyres is the same as that imported legally but the only difference is that smuggled tyres r brought in frm afghanistan.in afghanistan,they dnt hav proper godowons to store tyres nd tyres worth millions r just thrown on the roadside in dust,rain, strong sunshine.which hardens the tyres nd reduces the life.if u buy a smuggled dunlop[ le mans 701 or 702,its gonna cost u between 3200rs-3700rs....while the original wud cost at least atleast 4500rs(if available).buying smuggled tyre is a gr8 risk,as i hav heard that they can burst even after 10000kms or so....sum get lucky enough to get life span of 50-60k kms....so ,its a gr8 risk.

    my suggesion,dnt go for bunlop,bridgestone or yokohama...go for michelin,maxxis,nexus,perili etc tyres which r less famous.these r not being smuggled nd r original.but wud cost u atleast more then 4500rs per piece.

    still,if u want to go for famous brands,just go for yokohama a539.this tyres is awesome,has exceptional grip nd is soft.life is also excellent.

    if u want a cheap original tyres,go for federal FD1.it wid cost almost 3000rs per piece.has a life of about 50k kms.grip is awesome.but a lil bit hard.
    nd go for 195 not 185.

    Thank you all for your value able inputs.
    Just to share that based upon ur advice finally I have selected Yokohama DB (decible series,ES 501)for Rs. 4200 each. These are 195/65-R15 manufactured in 50th week of 2007.
    Previously there were Dunlop Leman and I can feel following positive improvement with Yoko;
    1. More quiet at high speed
    2. Comfort with better grip
    3. Light steering (strange effect as new are 195/65 vs 185/65-Dunlop)

    So my advice is if you are looking for comfort, safety and silent ride then Yokos are way better than Dunlop.

    Just want to mention, though quite expensive, Pirelli P6 are fantastic tires (Y). I replaced my 03 Vtis Dunlops with these (after they expired) and the car now has EXCELLENT road grip and the tires never fail. They cost 6000 rs a piece (195/65/15 91H ) , though are really good tires.

    Regards,
    What good is a Genius without the Human aspect?
