My company fitted Bridgestone tyres have done 38000 kms. Now its time to change. I am thinking of getting tubeless tyres this time and i need some funk tyres which are cool looking yes are as reliable too. Better road grip, less noise, good control in water/dust.
I went to a JK Tyre dealer as they were giving too much ad in TV. I asked for both tubeless and with tube. He said tubless are Rs. 1900 each and with tube its Rs. 2100 each. I asked about life of tubeless they said it has a shorter life than tube tyre and go off after 15000 kms anytime.
Is this true ? The JK company is showing that tubeless is future and their dealer is singing the song in opposite tune. Can you tell me which tyre is reliable ?
Should i get MRF, JK, Bridgestone, Ceat or some other ? I am surely going to get tubeless as i am fed up from chaging tyres yuk.
OK Thanks Hoping to hear from all ya soon.

You have taken the right decision of going in for tubeless tyres. Out of the four companies you have listed I would opt for the Bridgestones. But there are other brands available like Michelin, Goodyear and Pirelli.

Bridgestone: Potenza G3 (my choice)
Goodyear: NCT5 or Eagle Ventura
These are the popular aftermarket tyres available, you could also look at the OE offerings from the various manufacturers.

god know agout the life of JK tyres..(I hope them to be good) but my michelins 155/80 R 13 tubelsss on my fiat uno have already done 25k kms ad will probably do 15-20 k more if not less..
The problem is that if you get cuts in sidewalls...tubeless tyres may need to be replaced while the tube ones can still be used I guess.
I have dirven through some pretty rough roads though...and have expereiced no significant damage till now
