    Default Need Suggestion about Nexen or Smuggled Yokohama Tyres

    AOA
    Brothers, i need some help.
    I need to change tyres for my Altis 1.6 2012. Currently I'm using Michelin Xm2 since day one and they have served me well.
    Now i went to shop in Johar Town and the shopkeeper tried to convince me into buying Nexen 205/65/R15.

    Can anyone please suggest me which tyre is a good replacement of Michelin Xm2 as they are not available any more.
    At Saif Traders, smuggled Yokohama DB Drive and A Drive were available for 9800 and 10000 per tyre respectively. Are they worth buying?

    Thanks.

    dont buy smuggled tires - you never know what you get, the wrap cover are locally printed, so are the stickers, usually the tires are rotted out or fake copies.

    Just came back after a 1000 km's trip from Lahore to Bhakkar and Layyah. And i must say i'm very pleased with the performance of these tyres, they are very soft and comfortable in bumps, and one thing i would like to mention is they have really improved the braking, applied brakes very hard 2 to 3 times but to my surprise the vehicle stopped earlier than i was expecting just like my Civic 2014 does. fuel economy and road noise is also good.
    Overall good tyres for the price

    Bro there are two variants available One is CP671 and the other is CP672.

    Price difference is roughly 1000 per tyre ( CP671 is cheaper ).
    Shopkeepers ask 11000 per tyre for CP672 and give in 9500 per tyre.
