Default Hi Suman..

Are you sure it isn't Deepak Batra?
Hi Suman, though I'm off-topic, people who originally belong to these places have the same surnames. Atul Kataria belonged to Old Gurgaon (the village) and in all probability, this Deepak Kataria also must be an inhabitant of Old Gurgaon. There are a lot of Katarias in Gurgaon because all of them have originally 'descended' from one main family. Similarly, all urban villages in Delhi have all originated from one family and hence all who actually belong to these places (have lived here since times immemorial) have the same surnames. See in Munirka, you'll find all either Tokas or Rathee; in Lado Sarai/Adchini they are all Sejwals; in Mahipalpur/Rangpuri, they are all Sehrawats - it's like that...

BTW, I get my balancing and alignment done at a guy's place in Kishangarh, who used to work at the Das Alignment at Chanakya Petrol Pump. Though he uses the 'dhaaga', but he is skilled at his work. I get my Sierra, OHC and M800 aligned at his place - and please note that the Sierra 'eats' tyres like anything if not aligned properly. Till date, not had any problems watsoever...

Hey Guys,

There's a CEAT tyre shoppe in malviya nagar. I don't remember the name of the road but its on the road parallel to the main market malviya nagar road.

If coming from Ansal Plaza, go straight under the Pancsheel flyover and take right from the next red light. The shop is about half a km down this road on the left side.

They charge 250 for alignment and Rs 25/ wheel for balancing besides the weight.

You sure have a lot of knowledge about it. Another example: All Shokeen in Mangol Pur.

Like it is said " Yeh toh XXX (the community) ka gaon (village) hai".

Hi Guys,

I have changed my 3500kms old tyres on my Palio MJD SDX, got upgradation done from Singh Shoppe in CR Park.

Got 1500rs each for the old tyre ( 3.5k kms done )

I upgraded to Yokohamas 185/70 A-Drive ( thanks to Iraghava and Architect for recommendations ).

But i was told by Sadarji that allignment is not required, though he did the balancing for free.

Shall i go for the allignment as well, just for the sake of it, although the car is behaving fantastically after the tyre change.

Thoughts.

Hey Eddy !

The old tyres were the stock tyres ( GOODYEAR ) for which i got 1500 per tyre i.e. 1500 X 4 = 6000

The Yokohamas costed me 3000 X 4 = 12000

My deal = 12000 ( Yokohama cost ) - 6000 ( old tyre buy back )

So all in all the deal costed me 6000 + VAT ( another 700 )

I've been going to Singh Shoppee (erstwhile Kabir Shoppee) since 2001 for all my tires, balancing & alignment (and accessories too) needs. If you do have any problem with the alignment, then go to Singh Shoppee & ask for Salim.
Other wise a good place to go to. Have never had any problems with either balancing or alignment issues. Tends to be expensive than other places though.
But I do appreciate the helpful nature of uncle (amarjeet singh).

If any need arises, Just say Rishi/ Arjun recommended the place.
, Bubby, do you stay in CR Park?

Rightly said, Uncle is very helpful and good natured and is in this business for a long long time.

I have seen/known people coming from all over NCR to get the tyre jobs done from him.

I stay in Kalkaji, near Deshbandhu College.

Posting late on this, I have been to Star Wheels as recommended by Suman/GD. Satisfied with the quality of work done - hassle free and no hang ups.

They give some genuine advice over the condition of your alloys / tyres. I recommend the place to all.
