Default Tyre upgrade for Superb - Bridgestone Sports Tourer My-01 series

hi , need some advice , i have a skoda superb 2.8 V6 petrol, i recently gave my car to a bridgestone dealer to change my tires, as my budget was not on the high side, he recommended Bridgestone Sports Tourer My-01 series!which worked up to 6 k per tire since my good year tires gave up on me i went in for the change without any research! he informed that they are imports but i cant seem to track them down any where! they drive well though , low on tire noise and handles well, feels like the car is firmly planted on the road! please advice if anyone has heard of these tires
thanks

Ancer - could dig these up through Google.
Reviews seem to be favorable can you please post some pics of the tires and the size that you got ?

Have you checked the tire manufacturing date stamped on the side of the tires ?

They would be grey market imports.

They're grey market imports and very much popular here. They're said to be better than GIII's and I think they're manufactured by Bridgestone Thailand.

I too happened to run across these MY 01. The tyre looks good, but its made in Thailand. INR 5900 for 205/65 R15. Ancer....are they worth buying ?

My01s are now being imported legally into the country by Bridgestone. They are very good tyres. Worth a try.

Would the MY01 be better than the XM1+ ? They seem to be unidirectional sports tyres. but would they really suit Indian road conditions ? Do they have the strong sidewalls which the Indian BS's have ?

I think they will be better than the XM1+s. I cant comment on the sidewalls, never having used it.
