Default A good tyre shop in Kochi for Yoko/Bridgestone

The Accent needs new footwear. Currently it runs on Bridgestone S322 175/70R13.

The same tyre size would do. Preferably Yoko A Drive or Bridgestone Turanza. Can someone please suggest a good shop in Kochi?

Got a set of (4) Michelin XM1+. Kept the size unchanged from the original 175/70R13. Bought tubeless (the Bridgestone S322s were tube type).

Cost 2950 a piece.

New Bharath Tyres, Cochin.

The price I got was ok, however, the service was poor.

Shouldn't have gone to new bharath, Global Tyres are a better bunch, and the workmanship is also better.

You should have tried Speed Tyres at Vytilla, good service and for that price you could have got a better deal on the Yoko's.

I was in for Yokos, however, I felt that the sidewalls of Yokos were too soft.

I went to Global tyres first, however they quoted 3150 for XM1+ and was noncommittal on the final price. Also, New Bharath did Alignment free of cost (though I will do it again. The one who did it was a clown).
