This is the place senior pakwheelers recommended me. I went there two years ago and yes they are serious guys, no talking, just work and good work and rates are very reasonable. I don't remember what I paid exactly. This workshop is at Mureer Chowk Rawalpindi. If you are coming from Saddar side, it's on the left just after crossing Mureer overhead Railway bridge.
Wow the photos on that fb page. The new tires have still those tiny plastic hair to show its brand new. The tires I got, yokohama from Asad Tires pindi didn't have such hair. Even though they were manufactured about 5 months ago.
These 'hairs' dont just go away when you put in new tyres. They stay there for few Kms. No hairs at all means tyres sold to you as new are driven for atleast more than few Kms.
Lesson learned. I'll be careful next time. Such crooks everywhere.
O yar the barhi howi shave n paint lines running on tyres no longer come on imports.Local general tyres par hi hoti hain bus . I hv already asked n cross checked with a big tyre dealer
Thanks. I just called Asad Tires again. He said same thing. Yokohama don't have that hair he said. @hash4u, Can u tell me what area the genuine stamp is on allows?
Zoom the pic i postedIt has manufacturing date stamp .....feb 2015......chinese replicas wld not hv these or bar code stickers etc....
When the tires were cheaper and we thought they were very expensive
Bought Continental CC5 for my Corolla and Hankook H706 for Khyber. Both from their authorized dealers. The imported tyres don't have those "hair".
Asad Tires Saddar Rawalpindi is a well renowned Yokohama dealer. I have bought Yokohamas from him in the past. Dorry worry, your tires aren't fake.
And yes, wheel balancing is must after the tire change. Recently when I replaced EuroStar tires of my Corolla with Continental CC5, I put them on the balancing machine and there was a difference. The wheel balancing was done free of cost by the dealer from whom I purchased new tires.
Thanks for the awesome feedback and experience-sharing guys.
Mine were balanced by Asad tires after change.
Guy's, your views on this low profile tire on 15" rim.
Pretty good looking rims
These are for 2013 Vitz black colour. The good part is that the tyre size is 185/55 r15. Low profile tyre looks awesome on 15" aluminium rims.
