    It depends on which area the car is driven the most like road conditions, climate etc. generally speaking MIchelin and Continentals ( European) should be better being better engineered. But it also doesn't mean that Yokos are any less. Do share the options you have shortlisted since the series or model make of each brand has different characteristics and value to offer.

    In Pak. 99% Michelin tires are brought as smuggled from/through Afghanistan.
    Spend sometime to have some discussions with some old shop keeper of tires or whole sellers. Not very quickly but slowly in discussions he will start talking about smuggled tires biz etc. etc.

    These days the original tires dealers are very few. Their price is expensive in market but quality is really excellent.

    I used Bridgstrone for 7 years in my previous car. Fully Satisfied.
    Then Michelline for 2 years. Fully Satisfied.
    And now using Yokohama A-Drive since last more than 1 year. Have driven nearly 15K on these tires and everyone who looks at the tires gives the +ve comments and that brings more comfort for me to hear.

    I am Fully Satisifed with Yokohama. If you want to know who is main dealers/importer of Yokohama tires in Pak. Then I can further help too.

    Presently I am using Yokohama A-Drive.
    185/70/13
    Price of each tires was Rs. 7800/- with guarantee card for 1 year since the date of purchase or upto 20K.

    While in the market, other so called good quality tires were available like 4500~6500 (including Yokohama, but with other traders/dealers). But I choose the right dealer and it really brought lot of comfort for me and for my ride.
    In 18 months, I drove ~15K and not even single puncture yet. Tires condition, still like new. I can post picture here.

    The actual importer of Yokohama Tires in Pak. is Al-Sheikh Traders or Shaikh Traders. (am sure its similar name).
    They are in Karachi and distribute Yokohama tires in whole Pak. to different small traders.

    Below is the one of their traders in Lahore who buy yokohama tires directly from sheikh traders.

    Speed Tyres
    24-B Main Road, Faisal Town Lahore.
    Tel: 042-35179896
    Mr. Asif Qureshi. 0300-4362177

    Asif Qureshi is the sales man at this shop.
    Go meet him personally and try to meet with his boss who has office inside the show room but a little deep. I forgot his name but he is good person.

    They sell tires ~1000 ruppee expensive than market. But gives guarantee of 1 year or 20K km.


    Saif Traders, xyz traders, abc traders, etc. etc. I don’t want to say much about them. Because I found them not good guys at all. Majority selling wrong products.
