Default Front tyres for OHC II for Leh trip

Gurus, I am planning to take my OHC II 1.5 Exi to Leh next month. Currently, my car has all 175/70R13 82S tyres, which is the standard stock (verified at bridgestone site). My requirements:
  1. Replacement of only the front tyres & not the rear
  2. Will not change the rims - unless there are compelling reasons for upgrades
  3. With the stock tyres am fairly comfortable driving and doing corners. I am not a very high speed drivers (avge 100kmph on NHs) and often go to hills and places with miserable roads but haven't faced much problems handling/cornering yet.
  4. Would want to go for tubeless radials.
Please advise/suggest what options I have.

Go for MRF. Will last you forever.

Dont go for tubeless. They are generally softer than the tubetype tyres. Carry a mini air compressor with you.
