    Sorry I dont have any idea about it @KPR. Can you please raise this query in TFI Avventura Review thread and I am pretty sure that we will get confirmation about it.

    Update:

    Completed 69000km on odo and it was time to change the tyres.

    Now on 3rd set of tyres & this time it is Falken Sincera SN835 195 60 R15. Bought it from Paytm for Rs. 17395 with cashback of Rs. 4500.

    Fitted tyre yesterday and drove around 70-80km. It is too early to comment but there is nothing to complain at the moment.

    Will keep posted about it near future.

    Tyres delivered on time. Loaded into the car to take it to tyre shop.

    Reached at Metro tyres and fitting procedure started.

    Congrats on the new tyres. 3 set in 70K kms, isnt it too early? I mean generally tyres are known to last for 30K kms at least.

    Are the Falken's noisy tyres? Whats the OEM warranty on them (since you bought online)?

    First set Apollo Accelere changed at around 38k km as it became too hard and was making noise so changed it bit early. It would have lasted for around next 10k but dont wanted to Apollo due high noise and hardness.

    Second set was Bridgestone MY02 which lasted around 31k. Completed the Ladakh trip with MY02 and hence it gave sooner.

    Now on Falken and lets see how it works out.

    Not worrying about the warrenty n least bothered about it I paid just Rs. 12k (effective price on Paytm) for set of 4 and saved on around Rs. 10k. If something goes wrong then will buy a new tyre instead claiming the warrenty.

    Kdar,
    Aux lights looks great, how does it functions,have you provided a seperate switch to operate ? its a real game for the oncoming vehicles with high beams. :D

    @Ganges yes it has a seperate switch placed near bonnet opener. It is really power to blind the oncoming vehicles with high beams.

    I dont use it in City and usage is limited on highways only.

    First highway trip to Dandeli completed with Falken Sincera.

    Tyres are silent than Apollos and Bridgestone MY02.

    Grip above 130kmph is not that impressive and not confidence inspiring on corners.

    Comfort level is good and better than Apollo and MY02.

    Overall satisfied with the tyres for my style of driving which is not too aggressive.
