    Hi All

    I need to change all tyres of my Grand Punto Emotion. Size is 196/60 R15. Need your valuable inputs for below shortlisted tyres.

    1) Yokohama earth 1- around 5500 to 5800
    2) Falken Sincera - around 5200 to 5300 ( dealer told it is silica based with 2 years unconditional warrenty)

    Not going for michelin as they are above my budget.

    kindly advice.

    Regards
    Samson

    Samson,
    If I am not wrong, there's hardly a couple of hundred rupees difference between Yoko and Michelin P3ST.
    Amongst the shortlisted tyres, both have their own fan following with Yokos having better reach than Falken's although some die hard fans of Falken swear by the quality. My suggestion is Yokos.

    @sam_ncm I bought Falken sincera 195/60 R15 on 16th Dec 2017 for 4k. Your dealer is fooling you. I am using Falken since it has launched in India. It started from 3500-4300. But never reached that high as your dealer is claiming.

    Michelin primacy is costing Rs 6600 in Vadodara (inquired in almost 6-7 dealers), will go for Yoko then.

    How is your experience with Falken?
    also here in Vadodara I checked with all authorised dealers and they are in the same range. Rs 1200 is a big difference for one tyre even if location is different.

    By anycase you would be travelling to mumbai , then I can share the contact for the falkens. But if vadodara doesnt have much falken dealers then you should go for yokohama.
