    Default Tires and Rims

    Hello everyone,
    I want to change tires and rims of my mehran 95, please suggest me which brand is good to buy along with specifications, shop to buy from and price. I don't want alloy rims but simple aluminum rims.
    BTW I have got my mehran's engine overhauled and will get my car back on day after tomorrow inshAllah.
    Thanks
    Thanks to ALLAH for everything | Love what you have!

    buddy im not too sure abot the MEHRAN ryms..but i recently sold off my ALTO, so i had to purchase a new set of ryms from SUZUKI showroom(cost me 4500approx for all 4)
    so i think for MEHRAN they shd be cheaper if not the same price..
    n for tyres..i wud say go for NEXEN if ur on a budget... they are gud value for money(if u dont wan2 spend too much on DUNLOP or other brands)

    12"(145/70)..this is the standard size in the new MEHRAN

    if u want Economy go for 12" wid 145 track n 70 profile
    if u want Grip n Safety wid mild drop in Economy go for 12"/13" wid 165 track n 65 or 60 profile

    Brother if u want the prices, u can just try askin a few tyre walas..im not too sure on the prices...but it shud be in the range i told u..

    @s55
    for your own safety i'd suggest you avoid fitting general tyres, for peace of mind and good value for money you coudl look into nexen tyres as i know they are available in the correct size for the mehran (a friend fit them about a year ago, that's how i know)

    as i am not 100% on the exact size of the original size wheels i cannot give you more options.

Never argue with an idiot, they will bring you down to their level & beat you with experience, 5. Growing old beats the alternative -- dying young! 6. انّا للہ و انّا الیہ راجعون

    @Viper_995 and @Storm
    Thank you for the suggestions, I will keep them in mind and will find out the prices and reputations by visiting some of the tire shops.
    My current tires are General and I have been using them for the last 4 years now. They never gave me trouble and I have adjusted my self with the tires. I will check what size they are.
    Thanks to ALLAH for everything | Love what you have!

    @all
    Today I visited a tyre shop and took the price of General tyres of 145/70R-12.

    He is offering me one tyre for 1900 rupees and a rim for 750 rupees (normal aluminum rims). Can you guys tell me is it a good price? or I can get them cheaper than that? I don't want to spend on any other brand so only need to know the price of General tyres.

    Thank you, waiting for replies. Need to get them changed soon.

    Buy ANY tyres but Generals, even Kumhos are alot better than General tyres, if you want budget tyres go for Kumho, buy fresh Kumho tyres from its dealer (who only sell kumho) with fresh date of birth, 165 is the ideal size for Mehran, they will make the steering little hard but you ll feel the grip on road (Y)

    And for the standard rims, just buy them of from any local shop, why ? theres only 1 local brand that makes rims in Pakistan for all of the manufatures including honda , toyota , suzuki etc. just dont buy some re-painted ones, go to any shop and ask for BRAND NEW rims
