He gave me a quote and said I might need to wait a few days for the tyres to arrive. As my service was due, I made a booking with the A.S.S and casually asked them for a quote and I was quoted a little more than double what TyreX Cochin had quoted. I'm now very confused. Is it really that costly ? Is the dealership pulling a fast one on me ? Or should I just buy a set of Conti Cross contacts and be at peace ? Please help. Thanks in advance.
A.S.S quote for Dunlop was 2X of Michelin, this was almost a year back. Someone offered an option of 40% discount on A.S.S quote of Dunlop, but I ended up buying Michelin and I'm happy about the decision.

I got Michelins in January and they're holding up well. I got tyres manufactured sometime in october 2019. Initial impressions are that the tyre is pretty good and I feel it's a softer compound compared to Dunlops and have a tad more grip too. Thank you for your suggestion !

I have done more than 45K by now and it is still looking new. I hope it will live to the promise of 1 Lakh plus kilometres

Upgraded to the Continental Cross Contacts from OE Dunlopís few months back.
Dunlopís lasted about 69k. Could have stretched them further but the ride quality had become quite hard.

Hello there fellow BHPians,
I own a pre owned 2010 fortuner which came with 4 Ceat Czar AT tyres. Though the tyres still have some depth in them and in my opinion, should easily run for more 5000 Kms, the tyres somehow don't inspire confidence in me. After researching about all the viable options available, I see two options in front of me-
1) Yokohama Geolandars G015 AT(which has been highly referred to by some of the most distinguished BHPians)
2) Continental Cross Contact AT
Any input would be highly appreciated :
Cheers
