    AD vs PI

    Dear Bros...

    Time for a tire change... was quoted by South East for PS3 225/40/18

    AD SGD330
    PI SGD290


    Can anyone enlighten me on the difference between the two besides
    the warranty?

    Re: AD vs PI

    AD=Authorised Dealer?
    PI=Parallel Importer?

    Do tyres make any difference whether AD or PI? Warranty for tyres?

    I only know that the price difference is mainly due to the country of production, where the quality of rubber and properties of road holding may differ.

    the difference would be warranty claim if there is defect (ie: GY F1 sidewall crack).
    since you mentioned besides warranty, then there should be no difference in term of material/quality/performance of the same tyre same origin either it's imported through AD or PI

    check the PS3 is from Hungary or Thailand but some might argue what's wrong made in Thailand by Michelin?

    Re: AD vs PI

    i think that should be some difference especially rubber compound irregardless of origin.
    otherwise tyre company will just cover warranty for any tyre they made
    just like we look at our car , are they same Btw AD and PI
    I can said NOT 100% same, but are PI car safe to drive ? YEs because all PI car has gone through LTA homologation.
    so make your own decision and remember why you made that decision

    thanks to all those who replied...

    BTW I checked out the price at Sin Heak Hin @ Sin Ming Autocare #03-20
    best price for Michelin PS3 225/40 18". PI selling for SGD260 made in Hungary
    but the AD ones are made in Thailand and cost more. Cheapest in Singapore and JayBee
    and some say Batam.
