Default Michelin XM1+

Guys yesterday went for replacing my stock JK's with Michilin XM1 at our famous Tyre Dealer in Banagalore, and after struggling a lot for getting me the 185, 70/R14 he said its out of stock in entire bangalore and have to wait for another week, he gave me another 50 KM to drive on my Car so ill have around 150 KM to drive in stock Tyres but one good news is that he told me one new range is coming up which is replacing the existing XM1 and i.e. XM1+ and thats why the XM1 range is out of stock.
Here's the link
Michelin Australia

That is sweet news. 25% longer duration, good ride comfort, silent ride with superb grip. Will have to see how they price it.

Thanks Ajay. Thats great news.
I will wait until it is released in bangalore. Are you sure about the profile? The website says 185 60/R14 and thats what I have in mind for upgrade.

Yup, the new XM1+ has just been announced by Michelin & will be available very shortly. Price difference is going to be minimal & the tread depth is going to be more than earlier, so all those who worry that Michelin's are going to wear out faster - this is the companies answer to you!
