I guess he mistook your ID for Tanveer's - tsk1979. And the White Elephant he is referring to is Tanveer's Safari .

Thanks for the clarification.

I know in this forum there are biases towards many brands, so as a disclaimer, this is purely my personal opinion. I have used Michelin XM1s on my Indigo earlier and I would say it is not fully suited to our conditions if you travel a bit on "not so good" roads. I also had two sidewall bulges on couple of my tyres. The Turanzas on the contrary, I have seen as a great all round tyre with the looks, the durability and ride comfort. I have upgraded to these on my Verna as well as the Civic - 195 60 R14 and 205 65 R15 respectively.

True. Biased opinions are based upon biased Infrastructure development in our nation. It's just that the road one travels and his/ her driving style influences the Tyre's life and the damage to it. Michelins have a Softer Sidewall but they're one of the most Comfortable tyres. On the other hand, Turanzas are great when it comes to endurance against torture inflicted to them by not so good roads and their life.

9). Conti CPC

In any case, he seems to have gone for the CPC. Good choice IMHO.
