I doubt I would be using Premji's services again.
My office is close to Premji's shop and had visited there for enquiring about tyres. They dont have Michelins 215/55 R16 in stock and not sure when would it be available. They have Pirelli manufactured Aug/Sept 2015. Prices quoted are reasonable for Pirelli however Rs 500 more per tyre than what they had quoted 2-3 weeks back over phone. Still the prices are below MRP as per them. But after reading this review, I am confused. In the meantime a friend has shared contact details of Pal tyres. Awaiting revert from them.

So they can take out the report from that machine and there is another printer where they have just printed my bill, but they still haven't connected the dots. I was getting very late and asked them to send it by email and left my email id with them. Its been a week and that email is nowhere in sight.
I experience this particular issue last time when I had done my Punto's wheel alignment, there was no report attached to the bill. when enquired, they said the printer connected to the wheel alignment unit was malfunctioning. But they assured to send me the report at the earliest. A few calls later they sent me the report on Whatsapp fortunately.

I normally visit the place for the N2 filling once a month, but over the years the service has deteriorated. I had brought this to the notice of Mark, he said the continuous churning of the technicians to be the major reason. Heck ,they haven't even rectified the main entrance gate issue as yet which is a major source for scratches if one is not careful while entering. I am re thinking of my plans to buy tyres from them now.

I visited Premji's place after confirming on phone in the evening of 27th Sept. After handing over the car keys, I was asked to sit in the lounge but I insisted that I would check the tyres. To my horror, they had taken out P1 tyres from the stockyard instead of P7 and weight rating was lower than what I had asked for. I refused to buy them and got the work stopped. Manager apologised stating that as per inventory - it is showing P7 - 97Ws while in stock - tyres are different and the ones that I wanted, they had only 3 tyres available. I politely walked out.

Picked up tyres from PAL tyres yesterday through their Vashi shop- got them fitted . They have tied up with some other shop there for fitting, balancing and alignment. It was a fairly quick job and promptly done. However, there are 2 issues:
1. I have not got any warranty card yet. SMS/ phone calls are unanswered so far since, morning.
2. Wheel alignment job unsatisfactory . Will have to re-visit.

Premjis is way too expensive for most things so I've stopped going there. I just got tyres from Pal tyres opera house too and it was the best deal and everything was fine. The vashi shop is Ajit tyres.

Smile Re: Premji's Tyre Plus (Thane, Mumbai)

Got my scheduled Wheel alignment/balancing and Tyre rotation done at Premji's over the weekend. Costed Rs 850/- since I have a membership card, otherwise will cost Rs 1150/-. There is a new John Bean machine installed which is the second one for Premji's. So two cars can be simultaneously wheel aligned especially on the weekends when the traffic is much. However the data fed into the new machine is not an updated one. For Eg For my Punto the readings which were available were of 2010 1.3 MJD 75 & 90 HP.

Premji's is now selling tyres (Michelin, Yokohoma, Pirelli, GoodYears, Bridestones etc) on Amazon.in and is soon going to be opting for Amazon Prime. To cater to the online demand a new storage facility is being constructed in the premises in addition to the already existing tyre storage space. The packing and dispatch is being handled by a separate team and an Amazon representative sits in the office. The online orders mostly for Michelin Tyres have been till date from outside Mumbai.

Nothing to recommend about.

I had my tyres changed over here recently. Similar to the experience that you would get on any regular tyre shop. The only good thing is loads of space in the shop to manage cars.

Was dealing directly with Mark Premji. Refused to provide fresh stock of tyres citing that these are the only stock available from the company itself. I had a long distance drive coming up soon, hence couldn't wait. So decided to get slightly older stock of tyres installed.

While billing, when I gave my credit card, immediate response was 2.5% charges for Credit card payment. Certainly not expected from such a bigger dealer of tyres. There are small time shops absorbing these credit card charges.

Only Rs. 300 Offered for Old Tyres. The tyres are in a fair condition after 46K kms driver. The tread markers are still untouched. Told them to load up the tyres in the boot and decided to sell it myself by putting it up on Olx / Quikr.

Wont recommend it from my end. Will tell people to good to their nearest tyre dealers cause as such all tyre dealers provide the same rate and same service. So no point driving extra kilometers to go to a specific tyre shop.

Bumping up the thread.

After my Indore trip, I found the front left Michelin tyre had a bulge. The tyre had hardly done around 14k kms and I totally did not expect this on a Michelin tyre. Visited the tyre dealer Premji Tyres from whom I had bought the tyre and was planning to get the Wheel alignment/balancing done. I was told that the bulge can be due to two reasons:
1) A cut inside the tyre which could have been due to impact when crossing a pot hole or a speed breakers. I remember having gone over a rumbler strip while returning back from Indore at good speeds since the rumbler strips were not marked.
2) Manufacturing defect. This according to the Mark was quite rare since the tyres were made in Thailand unlike in India.

Mark advised to replace the tyre and claim under warranty, he even assured that I would 50% amount back but for that the original tyre price would be applicable. This means the tyre would cost me 6745/- and I would be entitled to half of this amount as warranty claim. I got the tyre replaced, wheel alignment and balancing done along with the tyre rotation. The new tyre was kept in the front left only.

Unfortunately the people at Premji's were not able to file for claim since Michelin's website was under maintenance for 5 days. The claim got registered after a week. Initially Michelin rejected the claim, but with intervention from Mark, they finally approved it. Got a refund of Rs 3408/- in cash from Mark towards claim settlement.

My experience at Premji's have always been good unlike few BHPians who did face some issues.

I would like to report a very good experience with buying Tires from Premji Online at Amazon.in. Found Mark Premji to be extremely responsive over emails.

He committed to provide the latest stock and in fact exceeded expectations by providing Michelin Primacy 3 ST tyres at the lowest price that we could find anywhere. The tyres were from November 2017 and December 2017.

I have also posted in detail about the Amazon Tyre Buying Experience here: URL

Overall I would recommend Premji Tyre Plus
