    Default nother Yokohama Outlet in Rawalpindi/Islamabad

    Hello Pakwheelers,

    Just sharing for the info of all. No advertisement or related interest is intended through this thread.

    I needed Yokohama Advan db tyres in 195/65 R15 91H for my Honda Civic. I am a true and committed lover of these tyres and they have never let me down in any of my cars. They ware not once that hard to find. Asad Iqbal Tyres in Saddar Rawalpindi usually had a good stock of them. But this time I searched all Rawalpindi Saddar market and couldnt find not only Advan db but any other yokohama tyre in 2014/2015 manufacturing dates. Most of them were even smuggled through the gray channel stuffing three tyres in one.

    My search continued and I finally found a very decent Yokohama outlet at PWD Road before Madina Cash and Carry if you're coming from Bahria Town and facing towards Islamabad Express Way. They have Yokohama tyres of every variety and in almost every size you can ask for. As per Yokohama Company policy, you can come back and return the tyres if you face an issue and get a new pair. Official company warranty seals and stamps on the packing. Haven't seen those in saddar.

    The owners are 2 brothers, one being a mechanical engineer from Germany. Highly impressed by their way of doing business, caliber and their attitude with the customers. They've got good staff and latest equipment and a big clean shop which you might not expect on a tyre shop.

    Thumbs Up for them and highly recommended to Yokohama fans in search of Genuine Yokohama tyre variety under one roof in the twin cities.

    Regards,
    Dr. Tausif Ahmed

    Purpose of spare is to tk u from breakdown point to tyre puncture shop not more.eurostar is good enough for that
    If u still like to burn money i think getting 1 advan db shld not b a problem.its 1 of the most common tyres in market

    For the convenience of pw members may i assure you from experience and research that Alino tyres is the genuine reseller of Yokohama in Islamabad. People who want can confirm this from sheikh traders

    I sold my new Eurostars for 16000 PKR and got new Yokos for I think 8000 or 8500rs each.

    When I looked up "Ninjas" in Thesaurus.com, it said "Ninja's can't be found" Well played Ninjas, well played.

    Some one doing the tyres business in Blue area told me that Alino tyres pwd is not a authorised dealer and usually gets Yokohama from his shop. So to whom a common man can trust?
