This was previously exclusively a Michelin dealer but nowadays he stocks other brands like JK too. Has lots of other accessories nowadays including compressors (made in China), Jopasu dusters (dry and wet) and most importantly TPMS (tyre pressure monitoring system). Also stocks alloys, being a tyre shop!
Services offered other than the other products include wheel alignment, balancing, nitrogen/ordinary air, tyre mounting/unmounting, puncture repairs (tubeless/tube). Tyre mounting/unmounting is by machine (probably the first I saw in Dombivli). Nowadays the guys have a digital pressure guage when filling air in the tyres.
Services I have availed of earlier were six Michelin tubeless tyres for my M800 (many years ago), and of the late I have bought the TPMS for my Ikon from him along with the dry and wet Jopasu dusters. I have also regularly used the place to pump air into my tyres as well as for balancing and alignment a few times.
The setup is run by Mr. Sachin Joshi, and is located near Gharda circle, a few metres onto the road from Gharda circle towards Khambalpada, on the right.
What I like: The guy is absolutely honest. He even delayed fitment of the TPMS on my Ikon because he wanted to get some clarity from the manufacturer on the old stock lying with him.
What I don't like: Unlike the other services, the alignment and balancing work is actually outsourced. Would really love if he could offer these services directly as I shall have more peace of mind then.
