And after you change to new tyres, drive at moderate steady speeds in initial 600-800 Kms. Try to avoid sudden acceleration or braking.

Thank you all. Reached Pune safely and got the tyres replaced with Michelin Latitude Cross which is also an AT tyre as Michelin LTX AT are not manufactured anymore.
The dealer in Pune informed me that now almost all Michelin stock comes from Thailand. All tyres were checked and found to be manufactured in 2013. Michelin international warranty for same was also handed to me with the bill.
As I have friends here in Pune who knew the tyre dealer, wheel alignment was also done and off course balancing for free.
He advised me to get the alignment checked every 5000 kms and maintain tyre pressure around 33psi. Mitsubishi on the other hand advises around 30psi.
Inner inspection of the replaced tyres was normal and I think that is the reason why I was able to complete the journey from Chandigarh till Pune. Now I can drive in peace to Goa.

Thank you again everyone for all the support

Default Re: Crack on the sidewall of Tyre

Dear All,
My 4 year old innova got a side wall crack in one of its tyres. They are all stock tyres and run only 25K kilometres. I remember hitting a pot hole at about 40 km/hr speed, a couple of days back.
Sharing some images of the crack. How should I go about it?
If your answer is to replace the tyres, is it necessary to change all the tyres? (because they are all 4 years old).

All are good year tyres. Heard that michellin tyres are better. Any specific models?
Thanks in advance,
bbhavan.

Hi
The crack seems to be quite wide, vertical and looks like a cut made by a sharp object. From the looks of it, definitely it cannot be repaired.

If it's tubeless tyre how do they hold the air and pressure ? Better replace since if it opens inside then it's unusable even with a tube for s short ride to some repair shop.
Experts anyways advise replacement and no other option for side wall cut.

Since the rubber is 4 years old, replacement is due anyways. Considering cost factor you may replace 2 tyres and put them on the front and the older ones on the rear. Else if you have vitamin M then replace all 4.

Please change the tyre. It's only a matter of time the crack with get deeper n touch inner tyre limit. That time the air will come out.

New tyres sidewall damage everyone tries to repair n use as tyre tread is full but thing to remember is safety. Sidewall takes lot of grilling when we drive a vehicle during turning n cornering. If you plan to continue driving please do not drive on high speeds...try to stay away from potholes and speed breakers and always carry spare tyre and tools. Staying within city limits might also help.

Remaining 3 tyres need not be changed. But this is my opinion. Different manufacturers have different products. I prefer all terrain Michelin. Again it's my own opinion
