Hi,

Are you for real. Do you really buy that. In any case the grey market caters to what the customers want. Manufacturers almost never launch their high performance brands here for 2 main reasons cost and life of tyre. Indian mentality is such that without knowing why if a tyre wears out in say 30k kms they will brand all tyres from that company as tyres that dont last.

Yokohama official launch was in the market was only a few months back. Before that it was all grey stuff itself and lots of people in this forum have bought and used them and don't think anyone has had any problem till now.
