Default GIII Potenza in Mumbai

Hi Friends,
I am getting my Swift VXi this weekend. I wanted to upgrade the tyres to GIII Potenza 185/70 R14.

My dealer is asking 15k for that. Can dear forum members, please recommend some place in mumbai where I can reliably get the tyres upgraded at the best prices.

Thanks a lot,
Anand

Hey, i've already mentioned in your other post, you can try Opera house.there are several shops there so you can try and get the best deal you can swing.
I personally get my tyres done from a shop near Kemps corner, he's pretty good and charges reasonably,..........The deal you swing will ultimately boil down to the buyback price you can get on your old tyres...

My friends in Bandra all go to a place called Saifee tyres..its in Juhu I think, never been there myself but they say he's good...
Depends which part of Mumbai you live in

Dude, that's insane. Are your tyres new?! I mean the G-IIIs...because that's the BEST resell I've ever heard of!

Hey Kpzen,

Have you made a typo or did you pay 2.5k per tyre.

No error....!!!

I exchanged my new stock tyres S248 165/80-13 with 185/70-13 GIIIs for 2.5k..

I paid extra Rs.625 per tyre.....N GIII being unidirectional didn't change the 5th tyre...

Dude,
Thanks a lot. I will try Anand tyres (for namesake ;-) )
Any idea which dealer in Milan Subway I can try for accessories. More important than low prices, they guy should not mess up the wiring in my car.

Thanks
Anand
