OT: Don't know if discussed elsewhere.
What's the difference between the XM1 and XM1 Energy?

Irags: Got the XM1's so anything wrong in them? Running super though

Difference is just the Silicon coating in Energy. It is available in 14in and above.
Michelins always run super though

When he says mileage, i guess, he means mileage of the tyre not the FE of car. Some one mentioned that they have increased the depth of the threads.
What about the price difference? Any idea when exactly the 175/65/14 will be available?

Damn! I didn't know of the XM1+ so went in for 4 XM1's couple of weeks back. No regrets though as they are very good and fit my requirements. I wanted a quiet, comfortable tyre with decent handling for only city use. Got 185-65-14 for Rs 3400 per peice. Much quieter and better ride than my GIII's, and the XM1's seems to "roll" much easier.

Gears,
Red-One.

Dont know for whatever reason Michelin's website (for India) does not mention the XM1+ range. Probably not updated regularly.

Michelin India - All Patterns

Also asked a michelin dealer for quote and he too did not mention anyhting about the XM1+. Are they available in the market and is it only for rim sizes of 14" and above??

I was talking to the sai(cmh) guy. He seems to quote least of all michelin dealers. 2,3 questions later bang came reaction "Sir, Are you from that team-bhp?" Pretty nice bunch of people to deal with. But the alignment and balancing equipments looks outdated compared to madhus.

BTW how much do these nuts, the metal piece to screw these nuts, the puncture kit cost?

Current range of En XM1 will be replace by XM1+.
This will be done to improve Tyre life , i think Michelin has understood the Indian way ...

XM1+ may be Rs.50-70 costlier..

Ya, Sai in CMH is good.

But I got the best deal for my Michelins from SUper Tyre Tec in JC Road. The owner Prakash is a nice guy. People can try that out as well. You can get his phone number in this forum.
