Michelin @ Home Service

I use Michelin for a number of my cars, and the one in Shuweikh also carries BF Goodrich, and there service honestly is excellent, they are quick and effecient. Now that they have this service, I think its fantastic if I want to change all of my tires, I will just have them come to me instead of going to them.

They also provide emergency road side services but the only item is they are only available from 8am to 5pm Saturday to Thursday, and most people usually are in need of road side services after 5pm. This is an additional service to what Michelin does usually so I think its an excellent option.

Another item to point out, they will install for your tires you purchase from them or from others, so if you have race tires that you brought from the US like we do sometimes or other sort of tires, they will install it and balance it without any issues. For 10 KD that is a very reasonable fee. The number is on the leaflet above, and ask for Saleem, he is very helpful.

Michelin – GulfRun 6 Prep

GulfRun 6 is coming up in a few weeks and I decided to change my tire to the new Michelin PS2 tires since my tires were all eaten up. It was a total 485 KD for all for sport tires, mounted, balanced and installed. Which is about 130 KD per tire, which is about the price of sports tires.

I ran into a problem, my rims are G-Power Silverstone Rims which a special valve to inflate and deflate the tires. That special valve was lost by the dealership so I couldn’t do anything with my tires, so I asked them to hold the tires for me. I called the dealer in Abu Dhabi and called Germany they said it would take about 3-5 days to get it, and time wasn’t a luxury I had. I asked to have them shipped FedEx or DHL next day but they were slow to react, I got a little worried.

Next morning Michelin guys called me and told me the tire guys fabricated some valves to they can inflate and deflate my tires, I was very happily surprised. I drove right over as soon as my meeting was done and had my tires changed and tipped the guys who did the work. They made two valve adapters one to inflate and the other deflate the tires. They did an amazing job and these guys remember me year after year so I make sure to tip them, and they finished all the work on my car in 20 mins which is fantastic. The best tire service in Kuwait is always at Michelin, they even have BFGoodrich which is my favorite truck tire brand.
