      Glad you got good service from them. And lets keep our fingers crossed and hope your issues will be sorted out soon.

      Have similar experiences here as well. Same goes with quite a few friends I've sent. However, I did hear some higher prices quoted off late. I guess that would be purely because of the margins each of these tyre dealers have with a particular brand.

      That is what I really like about these guys. My Cruze alignment was screwed and after getting the tyres fitted and going for my first long drive, I found the car pulling to the left. When I called Sarvanan, he forced me to come over immediately, before I went on another long journey and fixed the pulling issue after doing the alignment some 4 times personally advising me it was a bad idea to drive out like that and end up with unevenly work out tyres.

      I have enquired the price of Bridgestone Dueler 235/70/16 from a couple of shops in JC Road before, the best offer was Rs.7300 per tyre, but the down side was i have to pay for Alignment and Balancing, this alone will come above 1k for a car of my size.

      Now, Hercules offer was Rs.7450 per tyre, this included Alignment, Balancing and Nitro... so do the Maths.

      To be honest with you, i did go with a mind set of replacing a tyre or two in case the Mech's say that its of no use aligning the existing ones.

      But when i checked with the Mech's their answer was;

      "Sir, the present tyres are good to go for another 20,000 kms, why do you want to change them unless if there is any other reason"

      This brought in a lot of confidence, normally in similar places when they see tyres condition is wearing off and when they sense that customer is budging towards a new set, BANG.. the tyres are sold and fixed in the car before the customer realizes it.

      I want to share my experience at Hercules Tyres today.

      I caught up with mclaren1885 to source a short ratio gearbox for my car.
      Somehow this got delayed/postponed and we were headed back to Rahul's house, when I asked him if he would accompany me to get new tyres for my car.

      Rahul readily agreed for the same (a big Thank You Rahul).

      We reached Hercules Tyres at about 5 P.M. and met Sarvanan. We were looking for 14 inch alloys for my esteem and there was not much choice.
      This was thanks to the Esteem's unique PCD (114.3).
      Sarvanan did his best to reach-out to his sources to help offer the best possible variety. Greatly appreciate his tech savviness in using tools such as whatsapp to get his sources to message the images of the available alloys.

      Some how they did not appeal to my taste and I decided to change just the tyres (retaining my 13 inch steel rims).

      Decided to go with Apollo Acelere. Sarvanan quickly pointed out that there was some offer on buy back of old tyres from Apollo.
      He made a few calls and informed us that though the offer was a week away, he would let me have the benefit of the same (Rs. 150/tyre for my old tyres).

      What really impressed me was his patience in dealing with us. We took quite sometime to look at all the available alloys, then asked him to see if he could get some more models. When I settled on the tyres, he again went out of his way to give the buyback offer which was not available currently.

      I think, I got a pretty good price (honestly, i did not enquire the price anywhere else nor did I bargain). I paid Rs 3650/- per tyre (bought 5 for Rs 18,250).
      Paid Rs 750/- for wheel allignment & balancing. Total Rs 19K.

      Overall, I am pretty happy with the entire experience.

      rkk - Sarvanan had just called. He was going through the accounts and your bill last night and has asked me to come and collect the 750 we paid for balancing and alignment. He's offering free alignment and balancing for Gearheads who are purchasing tyres from his shop. I will collect the money from him the next time I go there for Anup's tyres and hand it over to you when we meet next.
