    Always make sure dealer cut the wrapping in front of u and every tire has warranty sticker on them
    Keep an eye on the process as many dealer show u imported tires but fit smuggled one

    Many shopkeepers give their own warranty nowadays.

    Official warranty is one way to check

    Also as shabro pointed out, hologram stickers should be looked for.

    You should also try to purchase from reliable sellers/authorized dealers to avoid such surprises

    Ok this is quite a question that Most of the people have in mind while going for the brand new tyres. Please correct my knowledge if indicated but I'm just sharing my homework that I have done recently regarding buying the brand new tyres in Pakistan. Please always know that there is no such thing as the original warranty cards (like Yokohama, Bridgestone or Dunlop warranty cards). The originally imported tyres are only three brands in Pakistan and I.e., Yokohama, Bridgestone and Dunlop. There are many people in the market who claim that they have the imported tyres and stuff and at times the same smuggled tyres are being sold as the imported tyres and the sellers make a lot of money on that. The originally Imported tyres would have the stamp/sticker of the importer.
    For Yokohama Shaikh brothers in Karachi are the importers
    For Bridgestone pakistan rubber are the importers (they have a website on Internet)
    For Dunlop the importers are Nawab & sons Karachi.
    Nawab and sons don't sell tyres to individual buyers. Whereas Shaikh brothers and pakistan rubber do.

    You can always call at their numbers and all three of them are very supportive regarding tyres and they guide you in a nice way. The nawab & sons for Dunlop would tell you their nearest resource person (in my case, PINDI is nearest and at PINDI, it's Umar Autos in Sadar). Also the imported tyres would always have the latest production date like late 2014 or early 2015.

    Also please don't always rely completely with the reviews stated on the Internet because not all conditions abroad are the same in Pakistan too. And many of the models, you won't even find relevant or at least helpful info online.
    For example in my case. I'm going for the Dunlop grandtrek TG28M2 275/70R16 Japanese made for my surf. Now I didn't find some detailed reviews on the Internet about it (though there are many reviews for the AT2,3 and 20 even. But I know that the current ones that I have on my vehicle served well for 6 years or so. They were put on the vehicle in 2009. So I have got a very good user review here. I hope my review would be helpful for many.
    Blessings to you all
