Default Need help for a tubeless tyre

The requirements are
1. 185/60 R13 Tubeless
2. Extremely resistant to punctures and damage from sharp stones.
3. Cheapest possible

Handling, ride, braking grip etc., is NOT AT ALL important. All that matter is durability and price.
Any idea how much will a set of 4 cost. Can it be managed under 9-10K ?

Yes, this will replace the Potenza GIII. I have to get 185/60R13 because I have an almost new DUCARO as a spare wheel which is 185/60

Bridgestones are expensive performance tyres. I don't want to pay for a feature I don't want.

Apollo is expensive. How much do MRF's cost in this size.

I am not planning to sell the car, just going to use it very less. (200-300kms a month max). Speeds not exceeding 40-50kmph.

Cheapness is the main criteria, cheaper the better.

See if you can get the ducaro itself. I know its stopped but you may just get some stocks since the size is rare and not many people will buy that size you may be able to get it.

Tsk.!
I'm sure Venturas come in 185/60-13 n approx price should be 2.4K per tyre.

Why dont get the stock size itself ? 165/65-13 then u'll have more options in terms of tyres too..

yeah realised after seeing that they were 185/60-13 not 14.

I guess he doesnt want stock tyre size so he can use his spare regularly without altering driving characteristics.
