      About the tyre noise...well i found out they both have the same amount of tyre noise...grip wise the BFGs were better. The place where i feel the CPCs were good were in the comfort dept. I am not sure of the lasting part since i used my BFGs for 17k kms and then went in for the CPCs in search of better grip which eventually i did not get . But in those 17k the BFGs showed less wear than what i have seen on the CPCs.

      One of my friend had put a 195s @ front and 205s @ rear of a Palio 1.2, on stock rims.

      The car was looking funny!

      I know someone who was running 225/xx/17s on a stock petrol Getz and kept complaining why it just wouldn't move. Beat that.

      My Bridgestone S322's have been holding up pretty well for my kind of use. They are about 30K kms old and 5 years old now. They have always been confidence inspiring for my driving style and have never had a scary moment, even whilst panic braking due to speedbreakers or odd potholes here and there. Even in wet the grip is pretty satisfactory. At present I don't feel the need to change even, but considering that they are 5 years old its time the old rubber go!!

      My only grouse so far with the tyre is amount of noise at highspeed.

      What would be the ideal next tyre for me considering that I am a relatively sedate driver and basically want a less noisy, comfortable tyre that is primarily used in highways and is in the budget range?

      Stock sizing currently is 175/65-R14, I am willing to upsize upto a max of 185/65.

      Till now prime contenders have been the Yoko A or C Drives or the Michelin XM1+. But have been hearing a lot about the weak sidewalls of the XM1+ and taking into consideration that I travel a lot on the highways of KA/KL/TN/GA/MH I would need a tyre without such drawbacks.
