Thanks Esteem Lover, went to the car exhibition in Bangalore and saw the JBL Evil Twins, met Sam and found out that the Twins run on Maxxis tyres which were awesome all the way from Delhi to Mumbai. Sam highly recommends them so gonna give them a look-up. Also checking up Bridgestone n Michlin as well.

Reviving an old thread.
This is the tyre my collegue is looking out for his MPFI Esteem. does Maxxis produce tyres in this size. How is the current pricing as compared to Bridgestone and Yokohama?
