My Cedia is due for a tyre change. I am looking for PP2's in 205/60/R15 or 215/60/R15.

I checked at a few places (recommended in other threads) in Bangalore and most of the places do not have PP2's in stock. They say it may take a month or so for them to get fresh stock.

Somewhere in other threads, I read that Michellin is going to revamp its product range. Any one aware of this non availability in Bangalore?

Overall I was happy with them.
The tyres are good but very noisy.Run GIII on my Fiesta.

Thanks to the conditions of our roads, the stiffer sidewalls also prevent tyre bursts! I used to run PP1s with soft sidewalls and had a horrific tyre burst, after which I switched to PP2s on all tyres.

Indian roads + low profile + soft sidewalls = certain trouble

Those tyres are not available in the replacement market.

Once your OEM tyres for the Laura are worn out, you have no choice but to put a different set.

PP2s are generally in short supply.

Where did you enquire?

Nikhil, I checked with Tyre professionals, Madhus and Millivision. Only Millivision said they have stock and quoted less than Madhus and Tyreprofessionals. However, I was not very sure about them and did not pursue further.

The other two said they will get stock after a month or so. They took my contact no and said they will call up when they get stock. I guess I need to call myself and check again.

So the S-drives or PP2s are the best options on the Laura as replacement tires?

I am aware of that. I did mention Nikhil's name when I visited their RV road outlet. Heard he was out of town then.

Planning to call up again. Hopefully PP2s are available now and also hoping to get a good deal on them

Nikhil - Can you comment on the availability? Thanks!

Hi binz.
Saw your post from early on in the thread.
A little more info about the Hankook Ventus RS2? Am seriously considering them for my next tyre upgrade which is going to be soon. Looking at 215/55/16 for the SX4. From what I remember 5-6k was the price range I got per tyre.

Called up Madhus again yesterday and I got to know it will take another 10 days for PP2s to be available in Bangalore.

They were available IIRC did Bridgestone stop them recently? Or were they only available in 14" sizes (OE on the Aveo)?

How do you define recently?

FOr the past one year, it has not been available by BS at all.

225/55 R16 or 215/60 R16 will be better.
