How much did the PP2s on your Merc cost?
Don't remember the exact figure. IIRC, it was about 9,000 (give or take 200 - 300 bucks)?

Do we have an option of 185/60/R14 on the PS3's?

EDIT: Just checked their press release here and it seems they are available in sizes upwards of 16".

PS3s are right now available only in 195/50 R15 and 225/50 R16.

However, by the end of the year, they will be available in 195/60 R14, 205/55 R15, 205/60 R15, etc....

I think 185/60 R14 is also going to have PS3.

@Nikhil,
Do you know if 205/55 R15 is going to be in India soon?

Bad news fellas....

PS3 is not going to be brought in many sizes. They have 195/50 R15 and some sizes in 16"
17".
No common sizes for the PS3 :(

Do they have 245/45/17?

I don't doubt their handling capabilities but are these more comfortable than PP2s?

Also, is the Primacy HP still available ?

They have only 195/50 R15, 225/50 R16, 225/45 R17 and 245/40 R17. No other sizes.

And I doubt they will be more comfy than the PP2s!

harshdreams- you will only find them in your dreams. This is a problem nationwide. I have waited over 4 months to find tyres for my car. The ISI mark menace has got to end !!

The ISI menace is playing havoc in the industry. Yet another sign of the government and bureaucrats messing around and not doing what needs to be done but focusing their time and effort on absolutely useless things.

As of now, in India, you dont get PP2s, PS3s, AD08s, AD07s, Advan Sports, not even C drives! Continentals are not available, S drives are in very very limited sizes. It's just sad.

Hi, if you guys are unable to find it in your city, then let me tell you that PS3 is readily available at a Michelin dealer here in New Delhi. They are Michelin Priority Partners and keep all the tyres in all the sizes. I recently purchased PS3s for my Audi A4 in 245/40 R18 from them. I hope they'd be having what you're looking for.
