Ketan, 50,000Kms (31,000miles) on a set is I would suggest is reasonable result, and if you'vebeen satisfied with handling and grip on your roads then I would suggest go for same make as before. Many years ago I changed because I thought I was being smart and regretted the poor ride and lack of grip.

Hi Ausi Ed,
Thanks for the reply. I am happy with the present tyres. But have a small problem. I am not getting the same size. Instead I am getting one size up. I.e
Present size 235/60/R17 102 H. Available size 235/65/R17.

Hi Ketan, I would agree with Jester that you try to keep to specified size. The new size you mention is only small difference in profile but car manufacturer undertakes testing to establish the best size. You may have limitations there in India as to availability. Speak to your tyre specialist.
