I am having aveo 1.4 2007 model and want to replace all four tyres. Suggest me .

Hi Santosh,

If you want an economical option then go for Kumho Ecsta SPT KU tyre. It offers good traction and handling and has a good tread life. Another economical option would be Falken Sincera SN835.

In case you want something better then go for Bridgestone Turanza ER300. It is a very good tyre and offers great traction and performance. The ride quality is very comfortable and smooth. You can also go for Michelin energy XM2. This tyre performs as good as Turanza but offers better ride comfort.

If you want performance oriented tyres then choose out of Bridgestone MY02 Sporty Style tyre or Yokohama C Drive. They both offer great handling and performance. But since they are performance oriented tyres, their tread life would be relatively less than normal passenger tyres.

Can we put tyre of size 155/80 R13 for santro xing ?

Read More

Hello Suresh,

The stock size for Santro Xing is 155/70 R13. Going for 155/80 R13 tyre size would not be recommended as it is an invalid upsize. 
For any upsize to be valid, the diameter difference between the new and old size should be less than or equal to 3%. But in case of 155/70 and 155/80, this difference is 5.67%. Hence, I would seriously recommend you to use tyres in stock size of 155/70 R13 for your Santro Xing.

dear sir i am using i10 sportz. tyre specification 155/80 R13 79 S. can u suggest which comapany is good?

Read More

Hello Anil,

If you something top of the line then go for Michelin Energy XM2 or Bridgestone Turanza AR20 tyres. Both these tyres offer excellent wet and dry grip, long tread life and a very comfortable ride quality. They both perform equally well on all aspects expcept that Michelin Energy XM2 offer a better ride quality than Bridgestone. 

In case you want something less expensive then go for Yokohama Earth-1. This tyre also offers superior traction and long tread life with good comfort.

However, If you are looking at an economical option that offers decent grip but a very good tread life then MRF ZVTSwould be a good option.

Hope this helps.

Ramit

which tyre is best for terrano 2014 model

Read More

Hi Ashish,

If you majorly drive your Nissan Terrano on highways or on city roads then go for Bridgestone Dueler D684 or Falken Wildpeak H/T01. They both are good tyres and offer a quiet and comfortable ride. In case you don't have a budget constraint then you can go for Michelin Primacy SUV. This tyre would offer excellent comfort, superb traction and long tread life.

However, if you take your vehicle for off-roading or use it on rough terrains/roads, then Yokohama Geolandar A/T-S would be a pretty good tyre. It also fares pretty well on highways. The tyre is quite durable and resists cuts and abrasions quite easily. Wet and dry grip is great as well.

Hello I m tamil from puducherry, wat is d life time for tubeless tyre in Honda activa scooter, my bike around 24000km travelled nw bt my tyre frequently puncher recent day, give any suggestion, hw s maintain tyre and average worn out period of tyre and which tyre is best for activa (performance and lifetime)

Read More

Hi Tamil Mani,

Two-wheeler tyres usually run well for 15000- 18000 kms, post which they wear out and require replacement. 

The best way to maintain tyres is to keep them properly inflated, neither over-inflated nor under-inflated. 

For Activa, you can go for Apollo ActiGrip S3 tyre if you use your vehicle over rough or uneven roads. It offers good grip over wet & dry surfaces and the wide lugs offer good durability over rough terrains. 

However, if you use your vehicle majorly over highways and well paved roads then go for MRF Zapper ( Scooter ) tyre.

which oneis best tyre for maruti suzuki celerio for vilege hard road? plz send me mail my email id is rbbhoye@gmail.com

Hi Rajendra Bhoye,

Since you use your vehicle over rough roads, I suggest you go for Goodyear Assurance Duraplus tyres. These tyres have DuPont Kevlar coating which makes them very durable over rough roads.

How do I figure the correct Tyre pressure. I ride a TB 500.

Read More

Hi Vishal,

Optimum tyre pressure for front tyres of TB 500 would be 20-22 psi and for the rear ones would be 30-32 psi. I suggest that you download an Owner's Manual from Royal Enfield website for your TB500.  

If you ride solo then go for 20 psi for front tyres and 30 psi for the ones at rear.

AUDI Q3 235/55/R17, What is the best tyre (Soft to Medium compound) offering low noise and good grip. Budget below 15k per tyre.

Read More

Hi Gautam,

Considering your budgetary and other requirements,you can go for Pirelli Cinturato P7 tyre. It offers a very comfortable ride quality, superior traction and long tread life.

However, if you have an aggressive style of driving then you should go for Continental ContiSportContact 2. This is a High-Performance tyre and offers precise steering control, excellent braking and superb traction. The tread life is also quite good, but not as good as with Pirelli.

Swizt Dezire Zxi mode 2011l, car has run for around 28000k kms. Tyres are getting repeatedly punctured.tyre condition is ok. What should I do

Read More

Hi Kanchan, 

Tyres usually have a shelf life of 5 years, post which they lose their grip efficiency and get punctured often.The tyres on your vehicle are older than that, so, I think it is best that you replace all 4 tyres for optimum safety, comfort and convenience.

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, good comfort and precise 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.

Ramit

Looking for an advise whether to stick to the Goodyear tyres or go for something else for ecosport titanium model. Usually driven on bad roads. Please suggest

Read More

Hi Piyush, 

You can choose out of MRF Wanderer Sportor Bridgestone Firestone FR500 tyres. In terms of grip and comfort, Firestone is a better product but Wanderer is more durable. 

So, if you drive over very bad roads then MRF Wanderer would be good, but for a moderate use over paved and unpaved roads, FIrestone should be a good choice.
