It is manufacturing defect. I'm just sharing my views it is upto individuals to accept or ignore. I bought from Ashoka wheels hyderabad. Now they are simply denying the warranty claim with biased analysis.
Primacy 4 is not a "SUV" tire and its mainly aimed at sedans focusing on silent ride. Sidewall cut is not included under warranty for Michelin unlike some other brands so I guess you wont have any luck apart from getting a new one.

Re: The Michelin Primacy 4, now available in India

I am looking to replace new stock tyres in size 215/60/r17 to 235/55/r17.

Made a few calls to some tyre shops and seems that Michellin tyres are still scarce.

Just one person has it and in Primacy 4ST. I am a little concerned as have had bad experience with Primacy 3ST in 16 inches on the Innova Crysta. Side walls broke on 3 tyres. Changed to Primacy SUV at 60,000 kms and no issues from then.
However he said that the Michellin has only this in the required size.

1. Are the 4STs better in terms of side wall breaks and punctures?


Also, he quote Rs.4000 per tyre for the ones i plan to exchange. 215/60/r17 . Its either Appolo or Goodyear that comes on the Innova Hycross Vx.

2. Is this a fair price?

Thanks in advance.

Re: The Michelin Primacy 4, now available in India

Hi,

Tyres in my Next Gen Verna (2017) is due for a change. I am running on the stock tyres Hankook (195/55/R16). I could get close to 60K kms out of the Hankook.

I was considering Michelin 205/55/R16 as my replacement. We to enquire about this in Tyre Empire in Bangalore and I had been told that michelins are available only from R17 and anything below R17 across India its not be imported and anyone who holds will be a very old stock. Is this the case?

Can someone help me in this regards with the information on Michelin's availability in Bangalore?

Sounds like sour grapes to me from the salesman.

Google for big tyre chains like Madhus, Millivision, SLNS Pitstop etc. and make a few calls.

Re: The Michelin Primacy 4, now available in India

I spoke to all of them, they all confirmed the same. Michelin starts only from R17. Anything below R17 Michelin is not an option.

I am not sure if this is right thread to ask for, if Michelin is not an option what other brands I can consider?
