    Default urgent help for tyres

    will be changing my tyres tomorrow. i have used the stock ones for 600km and i just want an idea what price should i expect of them If i go for an exchange.

    SECOND i am confused between Dunlop and yokohama. i will mostly be driving in karachi and the roads in my area are not so well built. they are quite rocky and bumpy. i want better comfort and grip.
    which brand is the best for these conditions? and yeah i m planning to stick with stock tire size! !

    I think you made the thread in a hurry, and skipped some information regarding what tires you have now and in which size, tires tend to cost different according to brand size and condition. better put some info first.

    bro 8,000???? double confirm it,

    if u r in KHI then do not go for Dunlop,it is coming in KHI mostly smuggled/expired/refurbished tires.Not original or from factory

    in KHI roads, it will not ever give u smooth ride with dunlop.also dunlop would give u safety issues in handling(specially on curves at wrongly designed badly built overhead bridges and underpasses by last local government)

    go only for Yokohama as it is softer (which is must for khi bumpy roads,dunlops are bit harder and so lost life after driving 5k-6k), btw if u mention area in khi,i can advice u better price for your Eurostars

    as by today the car had done more than 800km, i got a lower value of the stock tires and one of the tyres was even punctured.

    had to pay 23k and he took the old ones for 9000. and yeah the guy even made sure the balancing and alignment was perfect .

    it was my brother in law's friend shop and i even checked the manufacturing date etc !!

    yaar when we were discussing he told meTHE STOCK TYRES Provided by honda are 175 which is the least popular !!! iF they would be of the size 195 he would have taken my eurostars for atleast 15 to 16k (he said thats the price we trade in the GLI tyres which are bigger).

    and most of all i can trust that guy as he is very well known to us. and further i had my expert driver who also gave the approval as he constantly changes the tyres of my uncles factory cars.

    the dealer has a huge shop in phase dha2 on main korangi road.
