Great news. However all brands like Michelin, Continental, Vittoria, Hutchison, Vredestein etc are quite easily available at all major cycle stores. I hope the official launch of Michelin tyres brings down the prices.

Great news. While most of the brands are already available in good stores in India. The markup has been quite high and the tires are usually a little old.

The prices seem to be quite competitive now, heres hoping they continue to remain at these prices and in ready stock.
