Default Anyone know anything about Falcon Tyres ?

They want to rent a relatives property - am not sure whether they are a profitable company or whether they pay on time. Anyone in the know about them?

Indian Manufacturers Race for Falcon Tyres
August 08, 2005
(Clacton, U.K./Tyres & Accessories) Indian news sources are reporting that the race for Falcon Tyres is hotting up, with the Hero Group and Metro Tyres entering the fray to acquire the two-wheeler tyremaker. Sources say Apollo Tyres and JK Tyres, which were earlier in the race, have dropped out because of various reasons.

The Bangalore-based Falcon Tyres is part of late Manu Chhabria's Jumbo group. The company markets its tyre under the Dunlop brand.

If successful, Falcon’s acquisition will give the Hero Group an entry into the tyre business, while Metro will leapfrog to number two position in the Indian ‘two-wheeler tyre market,’ from a distant fifth at the moment.

Asked to comment, Sunil Kant Munjal, CEO and managing director of Hero Corporate Services, refused to confirm or deny the move. “I just don't want to discuss whether we are interested in Falcon or not,” said Munjal.

Dude i've got Fakens my my Skoda. The problem with it that the road noise is a bit too much, and the rest seems to be quiet OK.
