Thanks for the information nikhil. Conti website says 185/60-14 is available in CPC2 and 185/60-14 & 185/65-14 are available in CEC.
Do you know a dealer in bangalore who sells conti tyres?

Dont go by the Conti website. I am giving you info as it is in India.

Smallest size in CPC2 is 195/60 R14.

And there are a lot of dealers here who deal with Continental tyres.

Default Continental CP2 not available in Mumbai!

I am been trying the source the tyres in 195-60-14 and have drawn a big blank. No one seems to have Continental tyres all of a sudden.

The last time I checked just 4 weeks ago everyone had stock, and I delayed due to not gettig the right alloys and now when I finally located decent alloys the tyre itself is out of stock.

Both Saifee and Pal have told me the dealer is not reachable and supply is uncertain. Saifee said 3 weeks may be, so what do I do? I currently have XM1 but since conti is so much better than XM1+ don't want to go for those. Yokohoma is also an option but I think the tyre experrs here prefer Conti CPC2. Any suggestions?

Yokohama C-Drives could be a better option! I would leave it for Nikhil to comment on availability!

C drives are not available in 195/60 R14.

Conti, like most other companies are having supply problems.

But in Bangalore, the stock of 195/60 R14 CPC is available. Note, this isnt the CPC2 but the CPC.

Hi Nikhil, CPC is available here too, someone in Malad just called me but strangely its even more expensive than CPC2, what do you advice, the dealer is asking for 4400 per piece! How does the CPC rate in comparison to the CPC2? Also some dealers have told me to wait for 3 weeks, do you have any visibility of when supply will reappear?

Ok, here is the deal, CPC2 is clearly better than xm1+ so I really don't see myself going for Michelin. CPC is somehow available but CPC2 has tougher sidewalls and better grips levels in both wet and dry conditions though CPC is more silent and comfortable. The only info I have on stock is 2-3 weeks. Can anyone here help me source cpc2 for 195-60-14?

Need some help here, have tried over 10 dealers here in Mumbai and drawn a blank, 3 weeks and even then there is no certainty. I had delayed the tyre upgrade for over 6 months since I couldn't find the right alloys and now that I have the rims tyres are unavailable, what luck! And my current xm1 are in terrible shape.

Does anyone have visibility of conti supply chain and when the issue will resolve, that will help.

I checked on the conti site and they don't appear to have an India presence or I could have emailed them.

We purchased yoko C.Drives for my friend's NHC (185/65R14) for about INR 3580/piece last fortnight. you can try these tires if you are interested in yoko as they have very very good wet grip (even better than the S.Drives). I have them in my Innova as well (225/60R15).

I am sure that these tires also suffer from soft sidewalls but the ride and comfort / silence is very good. Compared to the Xm1 I have in my Baleno (185/65R14) they are very high on grip as well. If interested in yoko, I have uploaded a tire positioning map at

What luck, this is not the best time to buy tyres in Mumbai, the prices are haywire and stock extremely scanty, the ISI issue is clearly causing this. So I have decided to wait for 3 months. Hopefully things will settle down then.

My first choice CPC2 is not in stock, it was widely available just 4 weeks ago at 4100, and XM1+ at 4200, now CPC2 is indefinitely not there, XM+ is a ridiculous 4800 per tyre, CPC plain is 4400. If you are in the market for a tyre I strongly suggest you wait for the dust to settle down.
