Hello All, I am looking into the possibility of opening up a tire shop in Islamabad where tires would be coming direct from the manufacturers rather then the take offs we get in the open market. I live in NY and every time I have come to Pakistan and had to change tires on my vehicle I have noticed that these tires are either shaved off tires or are near their expiration date.
I currently deal with wholesale tires in NY and have had a auto body and repair shop for the past 5 years. Its been about 5 months since I have started focusing on the tire business.
I know the most popular sizes for Pakistan are 195/65/15 205/55/16 195/60/15 and many others which Im not aware of since It has been about 2 years since I visited Pakistan.
I would like to know that what are the usual prices for branded Tires. I would like to deal with Bridgestone, Pirelli, Kumho, Nexen, Goodyear, Continental. Michelins can be had for special order since these are expensive tires and no point in tying up money.
Please let me know. Thank You
