Sir, they are very good tyres, comfortable & no road noise. Perfect for that car and Sam is using them on his Verna and is very happy with them.

Is this the same M3 we were talking about the other day? The Advan's are very, very good tyres for a car like that! Would be a great choice.

How come MFR has got only
Mrf 104.33%

Any specific reason for it?

I recently changed all 5 tyres from stock Bridgestone to MRF and now I am really worried.

Ritayan, the latest import date for Michelin XM1's from Thailand is May-07. This is probably old stock. Which dealer is this? We recently got XM1's for a Honda City and a Santro and both had May'07 as Mfr and import dates.

hi! I was quoted 3300 per tire for Michelin Energy XM1 and 3150 per tire for Bridgestone potenza gIII for the size 185/70-14 for my swift Vdi in Gurgaon. Both with Bill and 3 yr warranty. He also offered to buy the original JK's for 800 apiece. Is it a good deal? Can I get a better deal Delhi?

Is Michelin energy unidirectional like Bridgestone Potenza gIII?

If manufacturing date is Dec '06 then no problem at all, remember it's just a 5 month old tyre. Most stock you would find with dealers is this old or even older.

I bought my WagonR in July, 2001 and have clocked more than 40 K kilometers on it. It has Bridgestone radials.
I have not had a single punture so far, touch wood. Honestly, I don't think I can change the wheel in case of a flat tyre, as I have forgotten what the manual says !!
My previous car, an 800, got punctured 2 months after I had changed to Goodyear radials, and have had at least 4 punctures in 12 years.
Bridgestone, are you listening?

Thanks everyone, Guys my Marina got her new footware yesterday, Energy 185/65 -14, Cost 9,250/- net for all 5 inclusive of balancing and allignment. I havent had much of a drive in it but did still take it out on till the expressway and back to get a feel of it. The suspention feel is very different. Hugs the road better, much softer on uneven surfaces. Tyre Noise down to an extent. A more detailed report with a Mumbai run on the express way soon...

Cheers

You got Michelin energy xm1 for Rs. 9250 for set of 5. Means 1850 apiece . Did you exchange them with the original ?

I too wonder how you got 5-set for 9,500. When I enquired for 13 inches in hyderabad, they quoted around 2300 per tyre.
