    Default Buying Yokohama Advan DB for City in ISB - London Tyres Query & Price

    Guys,

    Looking to change the eurostars on my 2013 City to Yokohama Advan DB 195/60/15, went for a market survey in blue area. mostly is was available in 195/65/15 with the manufacturing date being 4th/5th Month of 2012. The last shop I went to was London Tyres shop in blue he had them in 196/60/15 and his price was 8300/tyre and manufacturing was Feb 2012 the guy was very confident that we have original company stuff and not smuggled and was offering 1 year guarantee too. Somehow it was hard for me to believe that he had original stuff so anyone has an idea is he authentic??

    I also called Asad Tyres this morning he didn't have 195/60/15 but had 195/65/15 for which he quoted 8700 per tyre. I also visited Discount Tyres in Blue area he didnt have them in my required size too had 195/65 and price was 8600 per tyre.

    Will appreciate your feedback and suggestions. I dont want to go for 195/65/15 i want 195/60/15 and its only with London tyres and i dunno whether to buy 1 year old tyres and that too i'm not sure are imported most probably smuggled.
    Its a City n i Love it coz its my ride

    london tyres is pretty decent. with the clientele these shops in blue area get, they cant afford to sell fake stuff

    to me originality of product is undoubted, because advan db smuggled was all in size 195/65R15.
    one year old tyre is nt that old and the price quoted is attractive too
    moreover as told by sir madhouse12 shop has repute and offering warranty so there is nothing to worry about.
    get the tyres, u ll love the ride
    btw which rims u r going to use?
    Project GTxx

    brother according to my knowledge no good brand gives one year warranty.they give u mileage warranty.if u only want to buy yokohama then first try to call shaikh brothers karachi 021-34523078, 34526958, 34526959, 34526963 they will tell u who is the authorized dealer for isb/rwp.
    if u can go for any other brand i would recommend Michelin or Hankook korea.
    Corner Tyre 051-5566140
    Ittefaq Traders 051-5566710/5524251
    New Punjab Tyre 051-5585711/0300-5103073
    Bombal Tyre 051-5515023
    Popular Tyre 051-5567690/5514801
    Don't Compromise Because So Much Is Riding On Your TYRES.So Be SAFE and Choose Wisely.
