Arrow Looking for cheap sport tire dealers in Chennai

I am looking for aftermarket sport tires in Chennai for my Corsa SAIL. I've been to Majestic Tires on Casa Major Rd. (where I bought my alloys) and the prices quoted for tires seem a little high, for example:
  • Yokohama AVS Sport 195/50 R15: Rs.3900 per piece!
I have read several TBHP-ians' posts that bought similar Yokos brand new for about Rs.2300 a piece in Mumbai and Bangalore. Certainly they must be available in Chennai at those prices as well. Any dealer information is appreciated.

Hi,

Either you have read wrong or someone has put a wrong price. Yokohoma's were never available for Rs2300/pc in Mumbai for the size mentioned above. BTW they cost Rs3000/- for the AVS sport in Mumbai.

Hi all: Appreciate all your inputs, especially those that include a shop name and sometimes even a phone number -- which is really useful.

Arrow Correction

I meant the Yokohama AVS ES100 (which I inappropriately called the AVS "Sport", which is a different tire). The pricing and details I have mentioned in my original post is for the ES100, not AVS Sport.

The AVS ES100 (the one I am looking for):


The AVS Sport, which I published incorrectly (and is unavailable in 195/50R15 size):

Lightbulb Toyo Proxes FZ4 find

Thanks ravisak and headers for the contact information in chennai. Contacted all those guys, searching for Yokohamas and guess what I found. Toyo all season performance tires for about 25% less than Yokohamas.

Yokohama ES100 195/50R15 in Chennai: Rs.3900 per piece
Toyo Proxes FZ4 195/50/15 in Chennai: Rs.2900 per piece (at Chordias T.Nagar and Tirestore Greams Road)

These Toyos are not "Ultra" high performance summer tires but merely "High Performance" all season tires, but for almost the price of a stock tire. This is what the thread pattern looks like (the picture shows an FZ4 in a lower profile than mentioned above):



More info on these Toyos are here: http://www.toyo.com/docs/tires/tires...category=sport

You now know where to go if you want them (*Choridas* & *Tirestore*)
