I am not too sure but what I remember when I checked yokohama similar size tyre I feel guy said its around 4,600 rs. But I am not sure if its ES100 or some thing else.
Manufacture date is 1 year old as per your post, so it sounds like bit old tyre I am not expert although.
FYI My Innova baught in March 2006 and manufactured in August 2006 had August 2006 manufactured goodyear tyres. Dealer said thereis no problem at all to startusing old tyres like this. but again can't trust these guys because they want to sell the unit thats all.

Well in my opinion teh price quoted is bit on the higher side.We get for a better bargain in Mangalore. One more thing what you need to look into is the date of manuifacture. Many say that its always better to have the date of manufacture within three months from the current date. If the tyres are too old the rubber gets hardened and tend to wear out soon.
And i dont think any dealer in Mangalore would readily agree for a replacement cuz i myself experienced it couple of times.

dockap, please stick to the topic of the thread. If you need some info on the Magnum warranty search for a thread on Magnum and ask the owners there. That way you will get a far better response.
