Hi Ramit, I am driving Vitara brezza zdi and car has clocked 43000 kms with apollo alanca tyres. My daily run is between 80- 100 kms in which 60 percent is on road and 40 percent on bad roads.In this period speed is under 70 kmph.Now on next service I want to change the tyres. Right now i am getting 18-20 kmpl avrg. I want to go for Michellin tyres but one of my friend who is good year dealer is suggesting me Good year offraoding tyre. What will you suggest Good Year is best or michellin. I dont want to compromise on Fuel economy.

Hello Jayesh,

Even though all- terrain tyres would best suit your usage, I am afraid there doesn't exist any good all-terrain that suits Brezza. 

Since a lot of your usage is on rough roads, I would not recommend Michelin. You can go for Goodyear Assurance Triplemax tyres as they are somewhat durable over rough roads.  Other tyres that you could consider include Bridgestone Turanza ER370. 

Try keeping a moderate speed over the rough stretch in order to avoid damaging tyres.

Which is a better tyre for wagon r lxi cng - Apollo or Bridgestone.

Hello Sonal,

Go for Bridgestone B290.It is a great product, offers superior grip and very good ride comfort. The tread life on these tyres is quite good as well.

In case you want an economical option then Bridgestone B250 would be good.

i have got bridgestone b390 in 2012 for my innova, set of 2 tyres... to my surprise both the tyres got bubble. So should i go for Turanza are Ecopia now. What do u suggest?

Read More

Hello Vinnu,

I would recommend that you go for Bridgestone Turanza  series, as these tyres offer better performance, comfort and tread life as compared to Ecopia.

Also, it would be best to keep in mind that at times tyre bulges occur due to an intense contact with curb or any other sharp object.  Perhaps this could help in maintaining tyres. Other times, tyre bulge can be a result of a manufacturing defect, in which case, you can claim warranty on the tyres if they are under warranty period.

To claim warranty, you will have to take the tyres to a certified Bridgestone dealership, where the tyre would be inspected to deduce if the bulges were caused by a manufacturing defect.

Hello Sandeep,

While both are good brands, yet, Continental tyres offer better performance and traction. However, please ensure that you buy Continental tyres from authorized dealers only and get a valid invoice and warranty card.

Tyres for WagonRLXI

Hi Ravindra,

These 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.

https://tyres.cardekho.com/bridgestone/b290/145-80-r13-75t-tubeless

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.

https://tyres.cardekho.com/bridgestone/turanza-ar20/145-80-r13-75h-tubeless

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

I wanted to buy a tyre for my Astar car so which brand is good for this type of tyre

Read More

Hi Tushar,

Sounds like you're clearly looking go for a better tyre than what came with the car.

Here are two options to consider:

Bridgestone B290

http://tyres.cardekho.com/bridgestone/b290/155-80-r13-79t-tubeless

Bridgestone Turanza

http://tyres.cardekho.com/bridgestone/turanza-ar20/155-80-r13-79h-tubeless

While you'll be able to feel the improved grip and less road noise instantly with both the tyres, the Turanza will offer exceptional wet road grip because of its grip pattern. However, it's at the cost of slightly more road noise than the B290. If you don't see much rain in your area, the B290 will offer marginally better dry grip with increased contact patch.

Side note: These tyres can also fit on Hyundai i10, Maruti Wagon R, Renault Kwid, and Maruti Celerio.

I am debating between Hankook Optimo K424 and Bridgestone Turanza AR20

Read More

Hi Mushtaq,

Hankook Optimo K424 ME02 is a pretty good tyre, offers a good comfortable ride with great traction and handling, yet, Bridgestone Turanza AR20 is a better buy.

This is because AR20 consists of silica enriched compound which makes for superior wet performance and also enhances tyre life. Even the comfort on this tyre is pretty good. Also, Bridgestone has better after sales support as compared to Hankook.

Hi Ramit, I am looking for new tyres for my Nissan Versa 2012, actually the car has a Bridgestone B250 tyres, I am between buying the same or buy Micheline Energy instead. What do you think? the price is almost the same.

Read More

Hi Erika,

Hands down, Michelin energy XM2 is a far better tyre. In case you are comparing Michelin Energy XM1 then go for Bridgestone B250 as it is more durable. In case your usage is more over rough or unpaved surface then Bridgestone Turanza AR20 would be a better option instead of Energy XM2.

Which tyre is suggested for honda city 2014 model diesel?

Read More

Hi Anindya,

Goodyear Assurance Triplemax would be a very good tyre for Honda City. It offers good comfort, traction and tread life. However, if you want a better tyre then look at Bridgestone Turanza AR20 or Michelin Energy XM2. While Michelin provides superior ride comfort and grip, Turanza offers great traction with more durability and decent ride comfort.

If you want an economical option with long tyre life, decent grip but can compromise on comfort and tyre noise then go for MRF ZVTV.

i run car only 2000km for 1year, plz tell me which tyre is better for maruthi ritz vxi.

Read More

Hello,

MRF ZV2K would be a good tyre to begin with for your Ritz.  And if you want something better then go for Bridgestone Turanza AR20.  In case budget is not an issue then you could go for Michelin Energy XM2 tyre. It is the best of the lot.

If you want tyres that offer better fuel efficiency then go for Ceat Fuel Smarrt or Bridgestone Ecopia EP150.
