And for anyone interested I paid Rs. 3,000 a tyre for the Yoko A300 175/65 R14. The Michelin XM1s, which the dealer didn't have in the sizes I wanted, were about Rs. 3,500 each for stock size.

Although Sham Auto didn't have all the sizes, Manish (who runs the shop) seemed like a good honest bloke. I recommend him for anyone looking for tyres. Probably best to call him and confirm he has the size you want before you go to him. His location and numbers are on the Michelin India site.

Yes, A300 has silica like 14" Energy XM1s.
13" XM1s don't have silica.

I'm not unhappy with my purchase. The tyres are very silent - miles ahead of my OE GoodYear GPS2s. I just wish I'd got the size I wanted.
Congrats..

YOKOs do come in 60 series but in performance patterns.
Do share some more observations.
