Sir
MRF doesn't have a tyre in 185/60-13.

My dealer says the cheapest he can source a 185/60 for you is around 2.5k. It's a Yokohama but he doesn't remember which tread design. Also he said any cheaper than this would be Chinese brands.

I personally think Apollo/Ceat/JK might have a cheap tyre in your required size.

Tanveer.
Tire prices(Rs)
Apollo Accelere 2400
Eagle Ventura 2750
Michelin XM1 2950
Potenza GIII 2950

Sorry for suggesting Venturas which doesn't fit in your budget.

I think Rs 2400 is the min u can get a 185/60-13 tyre for. U might get Silverstone etc in that size but i would not suggest u those.U should consider Yokohama if it's within your budget.

Apollo accelere it is!
I have used Apollo before and its a pretty useless tyre on grip front, but I am told its very very hardy and durable.
So in another couple of months, the indica will have new shoes

I've heard Acceleres have good ride comfort....if thats the case then they cant be very very hard...
The Amazer XL's were very hard though

The amazers are horrible. friend got them OE on his estilo. Damn maruti guys refused to give the S322 even though i told them at the time of booking. they said once we get you the insurance and warranty we can't change the tyres as the tyre make is mentioned on them.

they ride the grip all bad. the tyres look also bad.
