Hi Umesh,

First of all, thank you so much for telling me about your driving style. This shall help me in suggesting the right tyre for your use.

Now, given your driving style, you'd need tyres that offer superb grip, handling and even a long tread life.

Choose out of Bridgestone Turanza T001 or Michelin Primacy 3 ST. They both offer superb wet and dry handling and respond well to steering inputs. Even braking efficiency is also very good on these tyres.

But, Turanza is more suitable for rough use, while Michelin would offer better comfort and silent ride quality.

If you want a performance oriented tyre then go for Bridgestone Potenza GIII. This would offer amazing handling, control and grip. But would wear-out relatively quickly.

Keeping your safety in mind I am only suggesting top of the line tyres.

Regards,

Ramit

Hi Abhimanyu,

If the vehicle you are using is Swift ( which you forgot to specify in your previous mail ), you should go for size 205/60 R15 . 

In this size you can use MRF ZLO , to begin with. You can also consider using Yokohama AVS db V550. It offers great traction and superior comfort.

In case you want performance oriented tyres then start with Bridgestone MY02 Sporty Style tyre. Another good option would Bridgestone Potenza GIII

Hello Vijayshankar,

Tyres usually have a shelf life of almost 5 years. If the tyres are older than that then they offer very poor traction as they harden over time. Considering that, it is best to change all 4. If however, your running is very low and at a moderate speed, then you can change just front 2 tyres ( although still try replacing all 4 for optimum safety ).

Yes, you can change 2 tyres now and 2  few months from now. But best is to make sure all 4 are of same brand and same model. Mixing patterns and brands is not a great thing.

You not necessarily have to buy Goodyear, you can go for any other brand you like.

Yokohama A. Drive AA01 would be a great tyre for your Linea. Another tyre you could consider is Bridgestone Potenza G-III. They are pretty durable and offer a comfortable ride along with great grip. If you want to go for an economical option then Goodyear Duraplus would be a good thing to consider.
