Definite grey market.

When did he buy it? Bill might be possible. Warranty also might be from the side of the dealer. Not the company.

I bought a set of Dbs too from Singh tires in CR Park, New Delhi size is 195/60R15s @ Rs.4400/- each. My RE88s were valued at Rs. 3600 (driven 40 odd kms) so paid a total difference of 4000/- for 5 tires including balancing, stick on weights and Nitrogen. The tires are manufactured in Japan in the 47th (1) and 48th(3) week of 09. The tires on my car were with mfg date of 3709.

His name was given to me by the local Yokohama sales manager. However he did not issue any warranty card just gave me a pair of CAT sunglasses that is being offered by the company. Is the warranty valid only if a proper warranty card is issued or is the dealer's bill good enough? I just have the bill and that too is for an exchange value for the tires that were taken off my car.

What does Yokohama offers as a proof of warranty/originality? Do let me know if wty card is required I can go back and ask for the same. I have to go back in any case to get my 800 bucks refund.

Great tires though. The only draw back is that they are rotational and I had to go back and change the spare one for my own RE88 so that in case of a puncture it can go on either side of the car (reason for refund).

Yokohama does not give any warranty cards like Michelin. The dealer's bill is your sole proof of purchase and keep it safe.

Thanks tsk13,

I will sleep easy now. Per standard practice a photocopy of the bill is already a part of the car's permanent file in my office & the original is with my accountant for usual munimgiri.

So what is the verdict guys? Which tyres are best for low noise, comfort, grip, etc. for tyre sizes like:
1) 205/55 R16
2) 225/45 or 40 R17
The upgrades are for Laura FL.

Khoj --- As TSK13 has said, dont worry. Just keep the bill safe. It should be enough.

Akki --- Continental CPC2 fits the bill perfectly but is slightly noisy(based on user opinion).

If you value silence over grip, then it has to be the Michelin Primacy LC.

Thanks Nikhil. BTW have you got any idea on the prices for CPC2 and LC in Mumbai? Any good dealers to suggest?

EDIT: Sorry, didn't see you're from Bangalore.

In 195/55 R15, you have only A Drives, S Drives and Advan Neovas.

Ouch! I am running 195/55 R15 S.Drives on my ride now, and was planning the AVS dB for the next change. And the Yoko international website lists this size in AVS dB, which gave me hopes :(

What would be the best option for Comfort > Performance > Silence in this size? Conti CPC2 / A. Drives / any other?

What im looking for is a comfort tyre in 195/55 R15 size for i20. If not available in this size i will have to up size and go for either Michelin Primary LC or Bridgstone Turanza ER60 which are available in 195/60 R15.

195/60 R15 will be too big for the i20. You are going to mess up your car.

Why in the world did you go in for 15" alloys if you wanted comfort?

195 section mainly for good looks and stance. And 15" too for the same reason.

Appuchan has his i20 fitted with 195/60 R15 michelin primary LC and he says he doesn't have any problem. UK versions of i20 comes with OE fitted 195/55 R15 tyres.

Munimgiri. You're welcome Khoj. At 5k kms intervals, get the rotation done, balancing and alignment too. I always get the balancing done whether required or not at 5k kms.
