    unique tyre in blue area has always given me and my friends the best deal

    he is always willing to match or be lower than than the best offer u have on a set of tyres

    yesterday my friend got 165/65/13 dunlop eco for his new alto

    melody shops was offering one tyre for 2400 and got a offer for 2050 from unique tyre and then melody guy had to match it when we told him that we can bring thetyre to u from uniquestyres for this price

    rim prices were also good at unique tyres 13 inch for 11.5 k melody shops were higher there too

    if you are ready to spend 12 k on rims.. let me know.. i will find a new set of alloys for u from within islamabad... you must have seen quite a few Unos with alloys...

    i guess the hub bolt in pattern is same as the peugeot... european standards are similar..there thinking is similar.. just the presentation is different...

    Saqib bhai i have tried General Radials on my corolla 86. On dry roads they perform better then Yokohama's of the same size actually.they are soft radials. But how ever they fail to perform on wet roads.

    Janleve 14 Inch General tyres (slightly used a few kms on new cars) are available with most of the dealers. They buy it for 11-1200 rupees and you can offer them 100 rupees more to buy them back, these tyres are alomost bran new.
    Be polite on the road. Always give way to others, particularly ambulances and pedestrians.

    as per my expereince, a car having handling problems becomes a roller skate with Generals but a stable car like my old sunny and this fiat, they dont make a noticeable difference.
