I am getting Kumho, rogue... i was initially getting General tires. but they said it doesnt have the ECE code and that would be a problem in UAE customs.. Didnt want to take any risk.... Plus I didnt want to go for the basic tires thats available here. My 18 inches had/has tires that is around 650 AED. I know roadstone and other brands have tired at AED 400.

Rogue which tires did you go for and how much did it cost you? I know ur shipment was only for the rims.
Plus tell many days did it take for you to receive it after it was shipped?

No the kumhos i got here were pretty cheap ... i got 275/30/20 for 650 or less n 245/35/20 for 550 or so ... in dubai ... from the dealer .... as for the rims ... after being shipped they reached home within 5 to 6 days !

Rogue, whats the name of that dealer? I'll need new tyres soon, but I'll be changing the rims to 17" or 16". Cheers.

I get my tires from Radial in Al Quoz. They deal with Toyo, Dunlop, Pirelli and Michelin (have the ps2's on my car).

Any idea when the Michelin PS3s are out?

Exactly, Falken are hard-rubber tires, they wear-our slower then the others

Your honest expert.

^ they are cheap, defective and they dont grip properly.. I used to be a falken customer bought some for the family's jeep and my fiat in the past..
& 1 more thing i dont trust the Iranian shops located after sahara center that sell Advan and Nittos. I advise you to steer away from them.. Incompetent... The way in which they installed the tire bolts back gave me goose bumps... I still feel better off in fast track...
