Oh well, I got a set of XM1's from grey market for 2K each. These are Made In Thailand ones.
Got alloys to go with the tubeless tyres on my new ride since couple of old steel rims were bent out of shape.
The dealer didn't have XM1+
These were 175/65/R13

I bought 6 XM1+ yesterday (185/65/R-14). I had purchased four XM1 last year for my Petra (replaced 20K done Goodyear NCT-5) and retained stepney as NCT-5. Yesterday I replaced all NCT-5s of my Palio GTX also and also replaced Petra's stepney.

I am extremely happy with XM1s thus wanted XM1+ plus for my Palio also. Believe it or not but I got a FE advantage of ~1 KMPL in my Petra with XM1s.

By the way got Llular PP70 on Palio (including windscreen) and going in to install PP70 on Petra also.

Default XM1+ pricing

Hi guys,

Got my Michelin XM1+ today for 3700/- per tyre (185/70/R14) with Bill and Warranty. Without bill and warranty, the tyre shop was selling it for 3500/-.

The tyreshop even threw in a pair of Rayban's, courtesy Michelin. Wheel balancing and alignment was an additional 200/-. Paid me 1000/- per tyre for the JK's which had done 1800 Kms.

All in all, i think it was a good deal. Though I'd share the pricing for potential stock rim upgraders cheers:.

@ankitahuja: Put these on my swift vxi with stock rims.
@EnITeeIEn : You are right these are the best prices one can find in mumbai (actually 3500 with B&W) Even i paid 200 additional for alignment.

BTW the Reebok sunglasses are really great, double anti glare coating is really fantastic considering the fact that it is a freebie.

What is the warranty period on Michelin's and Yokohama's ?

Just as Michelin customers must ensure to collect the Michelin Warranty card (along with the bill of course), is it the same with Yokohama's?

What's the B&W cost of XM1+ in 175/65 R14 and 185/60 R14 in Mumbai ? I believe, the Yokohama A.drives would be a couple hundred rupees cheaper, correct?

I am changing my Aveo 1.6 LT tyres tomorrow with XM1+. It comes with 185/60 R14 and the Tyre dealer says I can upsize to 185/65R14. Should I stop with this or can I even use 185/70R14?

185/65R14 comes to Rs.3600 at Coimbatore.

Let me know experts thoughts.

Why do you want to increase the Aspect Ratio? In India, stock tyres are always sold at a higher aspect ratio to combat bad roads. increasing aspect ratio can have adverse impact on handling.

Plus your upsizes have huge errors (since your width is same but aspect ratio changes).

Correct upsize may be 195/55/14 or max may be 205/55/14, need to check the errors. Pls PM iraghava, he can help you in this.

Akroy, agbenny there is no problem in 185/65-14 for the Aveo. Infact it is advisable as the 185/60-14 reduce the GC and are not the correct size for the car. A guy in my office changed to 185/65-14 from the stock and is very happy with the ride now as previously the car used to touch down and had a very hard ride.

It's the same as Lancer's case. Stock tyres are wrong size.

185/65-14 or 195/60-14 is not a problem and is a good upsize.

I second vid6639's statement about changing to 195/60/14s on the Aveo. I have the 1.4 and upsized to Yokohama ES100 195/60s.

Can really sail over Bangy's speedbreakers now without slowing too much.

Incidentally, I think the 'Aveo suffers' from a low front bumper and raising the ride height (and laying off the brake pedal JUST before the bump) avoids the dreaded sound! The rear bumper has a positively huge gap with the road.
