    Which Company tyres ? You mean General ? if yes then analyze the performance of the tyres, if they are used much then wait for 50K because in any case they will be scrapped then why not use it properly and to the end of their life.

    Check the height of tread on tires. It should be more than 1.5mm for them to work.
    Also they should have less punctures n should not be bent.

    I've had cultus in my family 4 times and i still have one, the company fitted general tyres are pathetic and need to be replaced immediately . I don't know why but i was never satisfied by them .Get yourself any bridgestone's , tyre size 175 70 r 13 and see the difference . Steering will become much more gentle , and ride will be smoother too.

    Not really , that's like rising your life because weak tyre's can never be trusted , 30-40k is enough for general i think .

    General tires last only 35-40k after that you will be getting series of punctures, with the exchange of tires it wont cost much to get new tires so do that, on radial it is high cost to repair the puncture and radial tire usually have 3-5 punctures when you feel it is leaking air.
