Exclamation Sourcing 255/55 R19 Tyres?

Hi all,

I need any help and information you all may have to help me source 4 Michelin 255/55/R19 tyres. I haven't been able to source them in Delhi as yet.

The problem has arisen due to the ISI mark being made mandatory. Somehow Pirelli has manged to circumvent this and their tyres are available in this size. I dont want Pirellis as they dont last past 15000-18000 kms in the Range Rover.

Any help will be most welcome. Thanks in advance

Hi I need some advice in sourcing the following tire Pirelli P-Zero 245/40ZR19 in south mumbai.
I am looking basically for a dealer that has direct access to Pirelli India.

Hey, did you find any luck sourcing these tyres in Mumbai?
My friend too is in need of 235/60 R18 for his Santa Fe!

Not yet I really do need this tyre now. Pressure is dropping steadily after I had the puncture repaired. Anyone know of a dealer or should we just email Pirelli India? I do not think they can legally import this tyre. I heard that only tyres manufactured in India are available officially.

Getting tyres is a real pain now. Even I'm struggling to get a 225/45 ZR17 PS3. And mine is a much more common size. Have you tried Pal Tyres at Opera house, Saifee tyres in Santa Cruz? Try giving them a call.

Otherwise email the company, they may be able to help.

The last option is you order from tyre rack, or import from Dubai or Thailand.

I would request you guys to check with TyreOnWheels.Com as they already have PS3 available as i checked on their website and got it changed for my Grand Punto yesterday itself. You can call their customer support team at +91-8010019000. They do have 225/45R17 PS3 as well as PP2 as I checked on their website while browsing for my size 195/60R15 PS3.

If you need any help you can inbox me.

I think you are talking about Primacy 3 ST, while I am talking about Pilot Sport 3. Totally different tyres.
