Yes, R15 was a typo I use 175/70/R13

3. 3200 ~ 3400 per tire. (Approx)
4. 200 ~ 400 Rs. Depending upon the condition.
The old tyres are not worn out completely, but I can see the rubber getting old. Rubber around the valve leaks air in one of the tyres. Also have been getting some punctures lately and dont want to risk it on the expressway.

I have been quoted 4100 for XM1+. Looking at suggestions, it probably doesnt make sense to go with S322 again.

Changes 4 tyres to Michelin XM1+. So far so good.
As per company offer, got one Samsung Guru phone free with 4 tyres

Hello Akshay,

Can you tell me which brands offer 185/65 R13 size. I am in the lookout for this since almost a year and never came across this in any good brand like Michelin, Yoko, Bridgestone.

Thanks
Srinath

Now that might be an issue. Actually 185/70 R13 works fine on a Getz too. I had those on my Getz and they were far superior to stock tyres. I had Potenza G3s which are too dated now.
