The problem with the tyres is that every third change, the entire rim has to be changed. This is because the tyre is glued to the rim to keep it from blowing away at launch. That will burn a hole as deep as $120,000 (Rs 82.6 lakh). A lovely little 1BHK could be yours in suburban Mumbai for that price. (Source: Reuters)
