Default Potenza GIII 185 R70 13 - How much in Cochin?

Guys, what will be the best price for Bridge Stone Potenza GIII? I am changing stock Goodyear on my Palio1.2 to this. Stocks have done 36K, still some tread left but, its getting punctured on every long trip.

The price mentioned by me was for 185/70-13 Potenza GIII...
Bridgestone S248 165/80-13 will cost around 2.4k here, so the GPS2 should be around.2.2k

Folks,

Just wanted to know from the "michelin" users that how well these tyres will hold up on bad roads?

When i had to choose rubber for my ohc, i was particular about the tyres which can take bad roads aswel, so went for turanza which has side wall protection and is lil tougher compared to potenza's.

though potenza's would be great at hi speed and on wet conditions.

But till now i havent got a reason to comaplaint about turanza's. its doing a great job

In Bangalore, Michelin Energy XM1 195/60/R14 are quoted Rs4150
GIII is quoted Rs 3450.

Looks like tyre prices are less in NCR.

Correction - Michelin XM1 is available for 3150-3300 bucks depending on where you buy it from and your bargaining skills

Pilot precedas are 3950, MRP is 4150.

@Lohith - been using Michelin XM1 for 4700 km now, no issues on any roads - Good bad, rains...Hope it remains so for rest of its life.
