Which tyre is Goodyear offering at Rs. 5200? If it is Goodyear Assurance, that too is a good tyre and I personally feel that there will be less uncertainty about its life / quality. Have you also checked Apollo Acelere?

Also please check the manufacturing date on the tyre sidewall. As you might be aware, the format is WW-YY. WW is the week of the year (between 1 to 52) and YY is the year of manufacture.
Yes its the primacy 3st and assurance. The acelere is discontinued and only alnac 4g is available for 5700.

Falken - 5000
Goodyear - 5200
Triangle - 4100
JK Elanzo - 5000
Michelin Primacy - 6850
Bridgestone G3 - 6400

I have also pinned down for Goodyear Assurance for my Sx4. The best price I have got is Rs 5200 including everything nozzle and alloy balancing.

Please check with dealer about the noozle, normally they don't quote it initially.

Got the Falken Azenis PT722's fitted yesterday and they're so much better than the JK's in terms of noise and ride quality. Got them from Pal Tyres for 4800 each.

Dear Friends, My SX4-Vxi has done 35000 on ODO in the last 8 years and running on good old stock tyres and never faced a puncture or a need to use spare wheel.
During the last service, we were advised to replace the tyres as they were turning 8 years.
What is the general recommendation ? Usual daily drive is 4 KM but we're planning a road trip sometime this month.
Can some one help with the following
a) Is it recommended to have a tyre upgrade ?
b) What fits well in VXI - Steel rims
c) Since the car is again not expected to be a mile cruncher, something which is lighter on pocket but not on safety is recommended.

so finally our SX4 gets new shoes. Got my old OEM Bridgestone changed to Yokohama Earth-1. Costed me 5100 per tyre and wheel alignment, balancing, nitrogen filling, valves all complimentary
There were quite a few serious contenders
a) Falken - it had unconditional warranty. Overall feedback in the group is good
b) Goodyear Triplemax

Finally stayed with my initial choice of Yokohama as the rest were out of syllabus i.e. heard and analysed them only at the shop and hence was not keen on taking impulsive decision.
Drive has phenomenally improved and the car looks cushioned and good grip.
Will post more updates as soon as I am back from a long drive
