    Exclamation Advice & Info Needed (New Tyres/Rims for City Idsi 2007)

    Hi... its my first time purchasing tyres and i was reading alot and asking from friends on do's and dont's on tyres purchasing like checking date of tyre. I will be going on tuesday to purchase new tyres and maybe rims too if in budget. I wanted to ask few questions

    What price should i sell my stock steel rims and tyres? (Rims are fine condition maybe 1 bent... tyres are ok condition 40,000 km used maybe)

    What size RIM & TYRES should i buy? That will give Good Mileage, Comfort & Less Noise. Looks arent that important for me but i was thinking of going for slightly less fat tyre? but thats not as important just an option.

    I really have my mind set on investing in Michellin, Pirelli or Nitto tyres. I dont like yokohama as i like those brands more without any technical reason. How much do the pair cost and what is a good relatively honest shop to buy in lahore? Also what shop has good variety of deep dish rims? I know japanese rims are best but what difference does it make if i purchase copy? I want to keep suspension and ride safe more importantly

    Kindly help in answering these questions because i will be investing and i want to make best decision.

    Well dear Michelin is the best choice for your car. Go and get XM2 Energy Michelin tyres these are exclusively developed for Asian countries like ours with good and bad roads. I suggest you to go to Tyre club defence or tyre track faisal town lahore. You can get more information from www.facebook.com/michelinpakistan

    Go for yokohama db 185 65 r14 or 165 85 r13
    If you can find yokohama a drive Japanese go for these. Better than db
    But if you want to go for size 15 then advanced db is the best choice. I was searching for advan db in 14 size but couldn't find em
    Michelin are too soft for our roads. Yahan yokohama hi kamiab hai. Although many people use Michelin with no problems. But I've used both and found yokohama better

    My dear Michelin is working in 170 Countries. Also Michelin produces different tyres for different regions. If some body bring wrong tyre to our country then it is not the fault of Manufacturer. Always get officially imported tyres. Michelin XM2 is being built for Asian countries with good and bad roads. It is built with latest Michelin technology "IRON FLEX" for Best traction, Robustness, Grip and Fuel Savings.

    Yokohama is working in 230 countries. Thats not the point dear. Yokohama are better suited for our roads. Asia also has japan and china and other better countries.. for them bad roads are like roads of islamabad.. and our gt road is like kachi sarak for them.

    My dear friend there is a difference in territory and Country just explaining to you with no harsh feelings. And to tell you about China there are lot of roads which are even in bad shapes then our regional roads.
    My point of view is that if a company develop some thing specially for some region then it will work better in that particular region from the products developed for other regions.
    So Michelin XM2 Energy best suited to our road conditions.
