    I went for 185/70 r14 yoko earth 1 and completed 11k in it,the tyre is good compared to jk but only issue is it will pick small pebbles and in turn it will make noise.

    Yeah Yesterday I visited a showroom where they suggested falken with unlimited warranty too. Now more confusions :)
    How do we go for online orders ? Is it delivered home and we have to fit in a tyre shop ?

    Friends, my Evo's front tyre again got a puncture on just the edge of the tyre (just before from where the sidewall starts). I fixed it by the regular puncture kit,but it is still loosing pressure at 10 psi/fortnight. I just asked a specialist tyre shop and they said they have some permanent solution( i guess the mushroom puncture kit). My Car has run only 13K on ODO. Should i change the tyre or should i go ahead with puncture repair? Also can i change a single tyre or should i change all 4? I am beginning to think these Apollo tyres are useless. I got a sidewall puncture withing 6 days of owning the Evo around a year and a half back.

    Can you post the picture please?

    For 13K run, better to buy one tyre. I don't think changing all 4 is required.
    Sidewall cut can be for various reason and can happen with any tyre. Be little careful with bad roads.

    I would prefer going for 2 tyres rather than all four because the other tyres can go for at least next 20K kms. While rotating the tyres ensure keeping either in front or at back so that the tyre worn out at the same level.
