Please dont play with your and your families life. If all tyres were built as tubeless tyres, than manufacturers will specify that on the tyre and not sell it as tubed or tubeless type. Even if there was 10% more chance of accident, I would definately not take that chance. Rest I leave up to your wisdom. Only in India can these jugaads (clever work) be done of converting tube tyres to tubeless, in US one will be jailed and sued for millions if he does this.

Guys. There is a vast diffrence in tubeless and tube type. I mean in construction not only in price.

The ineer compound and sidewall are way diffrent to offer better sealing for loss of air. U might land in a flat going over a pothole on your tubetype converted into tubeless.



One more industry secret. Tubeless tyres are much cheaper tjhan tube type when u account for tube cost also.


So next time justy by tubeless and throw away the old tyres and tubes

Congratulations on taking the wise decision on changing your tyres to proper tubeless ones. Please specify what was the original size of the OE tyres for us to tell you the effect of the new tyres, speedo error, ground clearance etc.

Congrats on your new tyres...the Eagle NCT 5 (I have the same in my Baleno) are teh best tyres I have used till now....very smoots and cushy ride with adequate wet and dry grip. One word of caution though...dont expect them to outlast the Bridgestones (which while noisy and bumpy...deliver exceptional mileage)

that is almost nothing to do with pressure but looks like the wheel balancing is not done right...too many times the tyre wallahs do not take time to balance the wheels right..(especially if it is a crowded shop...they have more customers waiting) and hence the wobble...get the balancing and alignment checked..it happened with my NCT5s too...got them balanced later..

Every time you change tyres you need wheel alignment done as well. The dealers mostly discourage this due to extra time involved and give fundas like new cars dont need to alligned. Well that is correct, provided we dont change tyre size on the new car!

Try and check with another known tyre shop for the balancing and alignment. Maybe the guy here isnt owning up - it should not and cannot be the suspension giving way before 10K Kms.

where did u get ur tyres from BHP ?

try out saifee at santacruz - he is good.

cheers
