Default Michelin M45 in bangalore where ?

Have to get M45 4.00 *18 rear and M45 2.75 *18 for front for my 180 dtsi .Right now running on pirelli SD110/90 rear and stock front.
Where are these available in bangalore?
I can get these from KRP delhi but i like to see and touch products before i buy them and also to save 500 Rs on courier charges ...

Thanks

Default Where to get Michelin M45 tyres in Bangalore?

I have tried everywhere!! I'm in the tyre business and I'm out of option!! No one seems to have this in stock. Some dealers are saying it wont be here till March of next year.

I need one badly for my Pulsar. Am looking at the 4.00x18. Is it the correct size for 100/90-18?

3.25 is not in stock even with company. Another friend wanted 3.25. I can get only 3.00x18 and 4.00x18.

I fitted the 3.00 to the front and the 4.00 to the rear. 4.00x18 is a little bigger than the stock size but not too much. The grip is awesome. The ride comfort though is truly in a class of it's own. I havent really pushed the tyres to the limits of it's grip and hence cant judge properly, but the ride comfort is truly astonishing.

Contact patch is same. Most of hte M45 doesnt even make contact with the road .

I'll try to take a pic of some P180 with 110/90.
