As long as you fit the same size tyres, it doesn't matter all that much. "Premium" tyres don't make as much noise when you're cruising (e.g. the Geolandar tyres on the Subaru Forester is jokingly called the GeoSquealers) and they might offer a bit better handling in dry or wet conditions, but if you don't drive like a maniac, you probably won't notice the ...
Perhaps you would be better served by going in with some specific questions rather than allowing a salesman (who might be paid on commission) to drive your purchase. For example, when I search Tire Rack for 2005 Audio A4 Quattro (Base model), I see many tires ranging upwards from $265 USD. When I purchased my snow tires recently, I asked the shop that I ...
tire shops don't want to sell you junk tires. they lose time and money when you come back complaining about excessive noise or a rough ride, and the techs barely make any money doing warranty work. they aren't always just trying to steal your money when they recommend a more expensive option.
No one has mentioned that the schrader valve could be leaking air too. Older valves may have their rubber seals deteriorate over time and leak. When you do the soapy water test, you might want to try putting some over the schrader valve area as well.
Safely jack one or both front wheels off the ground. Manually spin the tire while watching the tread pattern. If you notice a shift in the tread you have a bad tire. Sometimes the belts the tires are made of shift under the tread. It is also referred to as tread squirm or shift. It can be subtle enough to not be noticeable on the rear but can be felt when ...
You should fill your tires as often as they need filled. Checking your tires once a week is a good maintenance schedule. If, while doing your checks, you discover one or both are low, add some air to them. If you discover there is a continual loss of pressure, you'll need to get the tires checked for leaks as @DukatiKiller suggests. There is no reason to ...
Most legislations require tire manufacturers to list the week and year of manufacture as a 4-digit code on the sidewall. In the example picture, the last four digits of the tire identification number (5107) refer to the week and year of manufacture (WWYY format). This means that the tire in the image was manufactured in Week 51 of 2007 (mid-December).
Background There is no air pressure relationship between the front and rear tire. Possibility It may sound coincidence but it appears you have two tires that are leaking. To troubleshoot the issue, fill the tires to 40+ psi. Have a bucket with soapy water and a rag or sponge handy and cover the surface area of the tires with the soapy water. You will ...

If you are absolutely certain that you're not hearing the "low brake pad" warning made by the steel warning point against the disc, then it might be your pads have shaped in such a way as to cause the noise. Do you do lots of highway driving? One thing you could try to remedy the shape of the pads (which is a microscopic change) is to find a safe, ...

Mechanics are very resourceful, and I doubt you'd have any issue working with them in India, even in ill equipped small shops. The company itself would have taken cognizance of this fact. Also, maybe this was a design decision since this is styled like a "cafe racer". You might have to shell out a little extra for the little inconvenience you cause. Get a ...
