    Well heres a small update, Royal sundaram is charging 14k for a bumper to bumper zero dep ( including engine) while the other 3 i posted above are not considering the engine in zero dep...

    Is royal sundaram considered for cashless claims in Mumbai??

    Royal Sundram has normally tie ups with Fiat service centers, but better to check with your service center. Even cashless set-up is not available, it is not too much of problem to pay and claim.

    I agree, but cashless is more convinient and sometimes its just not so easy to put up 50-60k cash upfront for repairs...

    Hey guys. Been one hell of a ride the past 18 months... Any how , had to replace the tyres on my punto and was wondering which ones to go for.. The stock good years have been simply great. Great grip and super braking..

    But open to change of brands.. Budget not more than 17-18k for 4 tyres.

    Have to replace in a weeks time.. Tyres burned out bad..

    You could try Yoko DB Decibel 185/70/14, which I installed one year back. My experience has been good. The price might come below your budget.

    So this has been a financially demanding year for Trinity, Started in March with a much needed 4th and major servicing, 20k , then unplanned suspension issue, which resulted in my tyres getting balded 13.5k. Then a change of tyres ( that happened today) 17.5k and now the last part of getting the car repainted as it has started rusting in a few places which got scratched and some places like the bonnet and under the window beading, which have started rusting for no reason.

    The pics i put up will be in 2 sets, 1st will be the parts replaced during suspension work and 2- change of tyres

    Set 1

    Can you share your experience with Falkens w.r.t Comfort, Noise, Handling, Dry/wet Grip and how much did the tyres cost alone (w/o WA&WB) ,how much did you clock after changing to these new tyres.
    Before buying did you look out for 65 profile,rather than 60.
