Hi Neel,

Keeping your requirements in mind, Goodyear Assurance Triplemaxwould be a good tyre to begin with. It comes with a silica based compound and offers good traction and comfort with long tread life.

In case you want something better, then go for Bridgestone Turanza T001. It is priced on the higher side but is an extremely good tyre in terms of performance, comfort and tread life.

However, a tyre that fits between these two options is Bridgestone Ecopia EP150. It is actually a fuel efficient tyre that offers good traction over wet and dry surfaces along with good comfort and long tread life.

Hello, i want to buy tire for my chvrolet beat desel., Ihave changed all the original tyre in last 5 years 70k KM. now the new ones need to change.. is it normal?

Hi Subratu,

Tyres usually run good gor around 40,000 kms. So I think it is necessary that you replace all tyres. 

You can go for MRF ZV2K. It offers good grip and long tyre life. You can also look at Yokohama Earth-1 tyre. It offers good performance, durability and handling. Apollo Alnac is also a good tyre that you can look at.

In case you are looking at tyres that offer better fuel efficiency then go for Ceat Fuel Smarrt or Bridgestone Ecopia EP150. Ecopia would be our recommendation here.

Hi Adarsh,

MRF ZV2K would be a good tyre to begin with.  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.

Hi Pawan,

MRF ZV2K would be a good tyre to begin with.  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 XM2tyre. 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.

In 85T and 88S,  the numerical part recommends the load bearing capacity of every tyre whereas the alphabet repressents the speed index, or the maximum speed the tyre can withstand. 

85- 515 kg/ tyre

88- 560 kg/tyre

T- 190 kmph

S- 180 kmph

My 7 year old Scorpio - mahindra make, needs all tyre replacements.my usage is both on and off road and both wet and dry surfaces. My current oem size is 235/70/R16. Which is the best choice? Is an upsize advisable and if yes please suggest the most suitable one. Thanks and regards.

Hi Rahulraj,

Considering your usage I will suggest you Bridgestone Ecopia EP850 tyre. These are low-rolling resistant tyres that can improve the fuel efficiency of your vehicle by 10% without compromising the performance. If you want to upsize then you can consider 255/65R16 size also as the diameter variance compared to the original size is just 0.76.

i have a maruti swift dzire vdi 2009 model. i have done milage of 1,70,000 km. want to getnew tyres. which do u recommend. my vehicles touches speed breakers when it is full of passangers. plz advice to increase height so that it does not touch speed breakers

Hi Sir,

I will suggest you to switch to Bridgestone Ecopia tyres this time. You should notice slight increase in fuel efficiency and moreover they will also last longer. As for the problem with low ride height, get your suspension inspected as your car has done 1,70,000 km. If that doesn't help then you may alter the ride height using spacers in the suspension linkage but we will not recommend it as it will effect the handling also.

I own a maruti swift dzire but not satified with company fitted mrf tyres

Hi Nidal,

I believe that your stock tyre size is 185/70R14. If you are not satisfied with the stock tyre grip then you can upsize to 195/65R14 (for 14" stock rim) or 195/60R15 (for 15" rim). Do give Bridgestone Ecopia range of tyres for best value and uncompromised performance.

I want to change my Beat Tyres 165/65R14, which upgrade should be perfect and also recommend tyre for better fuel efficiency and grip also.

Hi Ashish,

For the best fuel efficiency I will suggest you to switch to low rolling resistance tyre like Bridgestone Ecopia. However, if you want to upsize for better looks and grip then go for 185/60R14 (for 14 inch rims) or 175/55R15 or 195/50R15 (for 15 inch rims).
