I will ask my tyre guy [if he has the tyre size or if he can get it]and let you know than your friend can come and check personally.
I hope your friend does not have any problem traveling to Mapusa.
That would be a real help. You check it out first and let me know. I'll tell him to contact you directly. Why traveling to Mapusa should be any problem? Actually I've no idea about that distance also. Is it too far from Taleigao?

I specifically didnt mention that and the Conti CPC2. They are car tyres and they cannot take the weight of an SUV. The chances of the tyre developing a bulge are much much higher and the company wont even listen to any warranty claims because they dont recommend the tyre for SUVs.

Dont see pure load ratings for this. Trust the company who manufactured the tyre!

Rudraji, I hope your friend is not being offered Pirelli car tyres. Can you find out the model name?

PS: I can speak as an authority on this "car tyre for SUV" issue as we learnt this the hard way. Car involved was an X trail and a Yoko V550. Same size. 235/60 R16. 3 tyres developed bulges over the course of one year.

Contact the Bridgestone dealer in Panaji, next to the old Legislative Assmebly Building - Adil Shah Palace, opposite Panaji Jetty. Its the corner shop.

He did say he might have Bridgestone Deuller tyres in that size or if not 235/70/16. If that's alright. The guy who runs the shop isn't in town presently.

People are suggesting Bridgestone. It is ok only if the tyres are new which is highly unlikely. Please ask your friend to check the date of manufacture.

Sir, sorry for the late reply but is the query still open? One choice as mentioned is the Michelin and I can check if they have any stock (since Nikhil says no so its unlikely) and also I happen to know the chap who imports Pirelli's into India. Want me to get a quote from him direct including shipping to Goa?
