i need to broad my wagon r lxi 2010 model tyre, please recommend which is the best company and best tyre for it.

Hello,

If you want to retain 13" rims, then you can go for following upsizes:

  • 175/70 R13
  • 155/80 R13

Out of these, I would recommend 155/80 R13 as it will offer better grip and will not hamper handling.

In case you want to upsize to 14" rims, then you can go for 165/65 R14 or 155/70 R14.

As for the tyre recommendations, MRF ZVTS will last a long time and are also very affordable. Many compact cars come with these tyres from the factory.

Spending a little more for the Bridgestone B290 will give you better grip and much less road noise.

These Bridgestone Turanzas are the cream, though. They are extremely quiet and the grip on wet roads is exceptional. As expected, the price is also on the higher side.

My personal recommendation would be the B290 as it offers a fantastic balance of grip, road noise and aren't that pricey either.

I've Toyota fortuner 4x4 MT and I need to buy set of new tyres so can you tell me which brand and what size is most preferrable.

Read More

Hello Deep,

If you use your Fortuner almost always on well-paved roads then you can go for Bridgestone Dueler H/L 683 tyres. They offer good comfort, traction and handling.

In case you want something better for highway use then Continental ContiCrossContact LX-2 would be a very good tyre.

However, if you usage is inclined towards off-roading as well , then go for Yokohama Geolandar A/T-S. It offers good grip over all surfaces and precise handling- it is indeed a very good all-terrain tyre.

In case you want something top of the line then Continental ContiCrossContact AT would be a pretty good tyre, suitable for off-road as well as on-road usage.

WANT TO BUY 4 TYRES FOR MARUTI RITZ LDI. 2011. WHICH BRAND SHOULD I GO FOR CONSIDERING DURABILITY, SAFETY, MILAGE AND GOOD RIDE QUALITY. APPROXIMATE RUN PER DAY IS 50KMS IN KOLKATA.

Read More

Hello Nirmalya,

If you want tyres that offer decent performance but have longer tread life, then MRF ZV2K would be a good option. The downside is that these tyres are a bit noisy, especially at high speeds.

In case you want something better, then Yokohama Earth-1 would be a very good option. Not only are these tyres reasonably priced, but they also offer great traction, comfort and handling. Even the tread life is quite good.

However, if you want something top of the line, then go for Michelin Energy XM2 or Bridgestone Turanza AR20. 

Both these tyres offer superior traction, excellent handling and a very comfortable ride quality. While Bridgestone is more durable on rough roads, Michelin tyres offer better ride comfort and enhanced tyre life.

Which Tyre should I choose for my Alto k10, and how to ensure their life

Read More

Hello Manchal,

If you want tyres that are top of the line in terms of performance, comfort and life, then go for Bridgestone Turanza AR20 or Michelin Energy XM2 tyres. These tyres are the best in terms of grip , comfort and ride quality.

Michelin offers better ride quality than Bridgestone. So, if ride comfort is your priority then go for Michelin Energy XM2.

In case you are looking at economical options then go for MRF ZV2K.

The simplest way to maintain the tyres is to keep them properly inflated at all times. Under or over inflated tyres wear out relatively quickly and do not offer good performance.

Also, it is in your best interest to ensure the tyres are properly aligned and that the wheels are properly balanced. These ensure maximum tread life.

 Make it a point to rotate tyres after every 5,000 kms. This ensures that all tyres wear uniformly so that you can  extract maximum tread life from every tyre. Tyredekho recommends 5 tyre rotation pattern, wherein the spare tyre is also be actively used.

Want to buy a set of 4 tyres for Maruti Swift Dzire VDI.Mostly used in Rural area.

Read More

Hello Anil,

Since the usage would be in rural areas, I would suggest that you go for Goodyear Assurance Duraplus tyres. These tyres come with DuPont Kevlar technology, which makes these tyres very durable against cuts and abrasions. Their traction level is also quite good, and the comfort level is decent.

You may also look at MRF ZV2K. These tyres are also very durable and offer good performance and comfort. 

If tyre durability is your priority then go for Goodyear Assurance Duraplus, but for over-all better performance, MRF ZV2K would be a better option.

Also, you might consider using tyre sealant in new tyres. This is a cost effective solution that protects tyres from punctures. These are pretty easy to find in the market, are very reasonably priced and very effective.

For Maruti Swift vxi 2013, all tyres have completed 45000 km . Pl guide me in selecting new tyres

Read More

Hello Vinayak,

Since all the tyres have been used for around 45000 kms, it is in your best interest to change all of them. While I would be better able to suggest tyres on the basis of your requirements and basic needs, yet , I would try to cover as many bases as possible.

If you want tyres that offer decent performance but have longer tread life, then MRF ZV2K would be a good option. The downside is that these tyres are a bit noisy, especially at high speeds.

In case you want something better, then Yokohama Earth-1 would be a very good option. Not only are these tyres reasonably priced, but they also offer great traction, comfort and handling. Even the tread life is quite good.

However, if you want something top of the line, then go for Michelin Energy XM2 or Bridgestone Turanza AR20

I’m planing to change my tyres after 60K kms for my ritz ZDI, can I upgrade to 195/70 R14 on stock rims? Also looking for best performance and less notice, can you please suggest a good tyre model and brand?

Read More

Hello Srikanth,

Yes, 195/70 R14 is a valid upsize for Ritz ZDI. You can go ahead with it. Just make sure that you get tyres with Loading Index and Speed Ratings compatible with the vehicle. To ensure this, make sure these parameters are more than or equivalent to the ones stock tyres.

If you want tyres that offer decent performance but have longer tread life, then MRF ZV2K would be a good option. The downside is that these tyres are a bit noisy, especially at high speeds.

In case you want something better, then Yokohama Earth-1 would be a very good option. Not only are these tyres reasonably priced, but they also offer great traction, comfort and handling. Even the tread life is quite good.

Hello Amol,

Since your majority of usage is over highways, you would require tyres that not only perform well over weta ndd ry surfaces but are also very safe and offer a very comfortable ride quality.

Keeping these factors in mind, I would recommend that you go for Bridgestone Turanza AR 20 or Michelin Energy XM2.

Both these tyres offer superior wet and dry grip, precise handling and control, effective braking but in terms of ride quality and comfort, Michelin is a tad better than Bridgestone. Michlein would also offer you longer tread life.

Drive safely !

What is difference of Bridgestone tyre Turanza Er 300 and Ecopia Ep 150 of same company -195 65 R15 which is better ?

Read More

Hello Prakaassh,

Both, Bridgestone Turanza ER300 and Ecopia EP150 are very good tyres and have respective benefits.

Turanza ER300 is basically an ultimate touring tyre. It offers superior wet and dry grip, comfortable ride quality, precise handling and good braking efficiency. It is extremely suitable for long highway drives as well as regular city use and has a very good tread life.

Ecopia EP150 is actually an eco-friendly tyre. So, while running it emits less carbon in the atmosphere and also improves the fuel efficiency of the vehicle by up to 7% approximately. It is very suitable for city as well as highway drives. Offers good wet and dry grip and handling, but not as good as Turanza.

So, if you want a tyre for long highway drives and supreme handling and grip then go for Turanza ER300, but if you want to go for tyres that improve fuel efficiency, are eco-friendly and offer good performance, then Ecopia EP150 would be the right choice. 

To summarize, Ecopia is a very good tyre, but Turanza is Great.

Hope this is helpful . You can know more about these tyres by visitng these links:

want to buy a set of 4 tyres for Audi A4

Read More

Hi Manoj,

Goodyear excellence would be a good tyre for your Audi A4, to begin with. It offers a very comfortable ride quality and is widely used as an Original Equipment on various luxury vehicles.

Another good option would be Yokohana DNA db ES501 tyre. This tyre is popular for its very quiet and comfortable ride quality along with great handling and traction.

Another good option would be Michelin Primacy 3ST. This tyre offers great comfort, even on rough roads, along with superior grip along and enhanced tyre life- A great value for money option.

In case you want something top of the line, then Pirelli Cinturato P7. This tyre triumphs in all spheres including traction, ride quality, quietness and handling. The tread life on this is pretty good as well.
