    Default Help! Prices of Yokohama & Dunlop tyres in Karachi

    AoA.





    Hi guys, I'm pretty confused that which tyre is best for my Cultus. Right Now dunlop is installed in it. I would really be thankful to you karachi guys if u help me finding a good store and most importantly, LET ME KNOW THE PRICES of tyres. After searching all the tyres, I came up with these two most known manufacturers of tyres. and I also want to know that whether the tyre would be of 14" or 13" for my cultus, coz as far as I know, I think its 14".... Please guys, Help me! Tell me the prices as well as the reliable shops from where I can buy tyres...





    Thanks Guys!!!

    Brother, go to Spinzer Motor Store in front of Noorani Kabab House. This guy is the importer for Dunlop Tyres. 185/70/R13 for my platz were Rs. 3,900 each 4 months back.


    Phone number is 4541218.

    Yes indeed! There are plenty of fake Yokos being smuggled from neighbouring counries that enter via under invoicing.


    If you want Dunlops go to Spinzer, I have given the number


    If you want genuine Yokos, go to Sheikh Brothers behind Hotel Faran on Shahra-e-Faisal. Their rates are 500-800 more than more (for each tyre) but genunity is guaranteed because they are official importers of Yoko.


    Fake tyres won't have rubber spikes and coloured strips. Originals will have these...


    I say go for Dunlop LM701s.....

    Yes, tyres are made up of rubber which has its age. Typically 3-4 years irrespective whether you have driven 5,000 km or 50,000.


    Old tyres tend to be nosiy and (being old) risky as well!


    If you aren't spoty type and just a normal driver, A300 or LM701 are ideal for our roads. You can also get tyres (handling-oriented) which will make your ride choppy and hard but will reward in terms of handling. Like Dunlop Dierezza and Bridgestone Potenza GIII. Aviod these for a soft ride!
