- Q.I have Hyundai Getz 2006 module , can you recommend which brand Tyre suitable , please adviceA.
Hello Balamurali Natarajan, MRF ZVTS would be a good tyre to begin with for your Getz. It would offer confident grip with a very good tread life. They are also durable over rough roads. But on the downside, they are a bit too noisy on highways and highspeeds. In case you want something better then go for Michelin Energy XM2. These tyres would offer excellent grip, superior ride comfort and great tread life. RegardsAnswered 11 Dec 2017 12:59:22
- Q.dear sir i am using i10 sportz. tyre specification 155/80 R13 79 S. can u suggest which comapany is good?A.
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 ZVTS would be a good option. Hope this helps.

- Q.i have a santro gls which has done 55000 km need to change my tyres I do extensive travelling in smaller towns too pl guide the best optionsA.
Hello Anshul, I would suggest that you go for Bridgestone Firestone FR500 tyre for your Santro. It is an excellent tyre; offers superior wey and dry grip, is quite durable over rough tarmac and offers long tread life along with good ride comfort. In case you want something economical then go for MRF ZSLK. These are silica based tyres and offer good wet and dry grip with long tread life. Regards, RamitAnswered 23 Oct 2017 12:46:34
- Q.I recently bought Hyundai Elantra diesel AT, it currently runs on Hankook 205/60/16 and I am looking to replace the OEM tyre and alloys. I am not sure what size of tyre should I go for. The options i had in mind were: 215/60/16 215/55/16 215/55/17 215/50/17. Also which brand of tyre should i opt for, i want a comfortable ride without compromising on grip and performance. If i upsize to 17 inch will it affect the suspension and the fuel efficiency a lot ?A.
Hello Naval Pradeep, You should go for 215/60 R16 tyre size as it will offer better road grip and more responsive braking without impacting the ride quality and handling. Rest of the sizes mentioned by you are low profile tyres which would hamper the ride quality due to reduced side profile. The rims/alloys may also get damaged easily over rough tarmac. You should go for Michelin Primacy 3ST. These tyres offer excellent ride quality, superior grip, precise handling and a very long tread life. You may also go for Bridgestone Turanza T001. This tyre is on par with Michelin in terms of grip and performance but lacks slightly in terms of ride quality. You can upsize to 17" alloys. It will not have any impact on fuel efficiency or ride quality. In fact, opting for tyres in 17" rims would offer better road grip and more responsive braking. But it is an expensive affair.

- Q.I drive a Hyundai Grand i10 2014 model. Currently i'm facing a problem where in my car alignment is not correct and the car runs towards the left. On showing the same to a technician, he suggested that it is not because of alignment but because your tyres are worn out (Car Mileage- 49500kms). Now i'm confused if he's trying to sell his product or is it genuinely because of that. The tyres do not look so worn out that they need replacement. Please suggest what should be done. Also, in case the tyre needs to be changed, which company would you recommend. Also, the current size of tyre is 165/65 R14. should i use the same configuration and what would be the difference if i use a 165/70 R14 tyre. ThanksA.
Hi Manish, Well, mostly tyres usually run good for about 40,000-45,000 kms. However, if maintained properly, they could offer better mileage. So, the best way to assess if your tyres are worn out is to check if the tread depth on them is more than 1.6mm or not. If not, then the tyres need replacement for they are worn-out. Vehicle pulling towards one direction is usually a symptom of faulty wheel alignment, but if the front tyres haven't worn out evenly i,e one more worn out then the other, then the car may start drifting to one side. If the tyres have enough depth and the tyres seem to have worn out evenly, then there is some other problem which needs further inspection from a good service centre. In case of tyre change, you will have to replace at least 2 tyres ( although replacing all 4 would be best from a safety and performance view point ). You can use 165/70 R14 tyre, but this would have more sidewall height. While over a normal usage it wouldn't make much of a difference, over high ways or at high speeds the vehicluar stability may not remain precise. So, it is best that you use 165/65 R14. If you want tyres that offer good grip, decent handling and long tread life, then go for MRF ZVTV. However, these tyres are a bit noisy, especially over highways. A better option would be Yokohama Earth-1 tyre. It comes with a silica based compound for superior wet and dry traction and offers good comfort. A top of the line option, however, would be Michelin Energy XM2. It delivers excellent performance over wet and dry surfaces and the ride quality is very comfortable.

- Q.i want to change two tyre of my graind i10 the dealer ask me for 165-70 is gud is it ok or 165-65A.
Hello Anuj, If the stock tyres on your i10 is 155/80 R13, then you should go for 165/80 R13. However, if you are going for 14" rim tyres, then 165/70 R14 will be the right size. I would recommend that you get wheels balanced and properly aligned after fitting new tyres. This will ensure proper wearing of tyres and precise steering control.

- Q.I have i10 and need to replace now. Pl let me which brand is safer and durable.A.
Hi Siva, These two things are contradicting. A softer compound will offer good grip for better braking under emergency situations but will wear out faster. Harder rubber will last long but braking performance will be poorer. You have to find balance based on your usage. I'd recommend the Michelin Energy XM2. It has only three centre gutters in the centre to hold water on wet roads as there more channels to push it outward. That increases the amount of rubber in contact with the surface. So you get good dry and wet weather grip with more rubber to shred before it's time to replace. Here's the link: https://tyres.cardekho.com/michelin/energy-xm2/155-80-r13-79t-tubeless Falken Sincera is another option that's also cheaper than the XM2 but won't last as long as the XM2. https://tyres.cardekho.com/falken/sincera-sn835/155-80-r13-79t-tubeless Both of these tyres will be quieter and grippier than the factory tyres you got with your car. The improvement will be noticeable. --MaheshAnswered 28 Apr 2017 03:40:46
- Q.I have a I-20 2010 model. Done 40000 KMS on existing Apollo tyres which came with the car. Recommend me tyres which will last me for 3-4 years when I plan to sell the car. Help me to choose within mrf and Apollo.A.
Hi Dalston, I'm not sure what variant of I20 you drive. So I'll give you recommendations for both the available tyre sizes that were available in your 2010 i20. In approx 7 years you drove 40000km. An average of 6000km a year. At this rate, you'll need a tyre that can last 24000km. Pretty much all tyres will last this much. So, I'm suggesting softer compound tyres that offer good grip and a bit less road noise. Era and Magna: 175/70 R14 Apollo Alnac: Good noise insulation and water evacuation for wet roads https://tyres.cardekho.com/apollo/alnac/175-70-r14-84t8-tubeless MRF ZVTV: Hard compound will give long life and good fuel efficiency, will be noisy at higher speeds https://tyres.cardekho.com/mrf/zvtv/175-70-r14-84t-tubeless If you're willing to look at more options: Bridgestone B290: Contains road noise very well, much grippier than the tyres you go from the factory. https://tyres.cardekho.com/bridgestone/b290/175-70-r14-84t-tubeless Falken Sincera: good stopping power compared to the B290 and good wet grip but will be noisier than the B290 https://tyres.cardekho.com/falken/sincera-sn835/175-70-r14-84t-tubeless Sportz and Asta: 185/65 R14 Apollo Alnac 4G https://tyres.cardekho.com/apollo/alnac-4gs/185-65-r14-86h17-tubeless Other options: Bridgestone MY02: Looks good, offers good grip in dry conditions, wet grip is nothing exceptional https://tyres.cardekho.com/bridgestone/my02/185-65-r14-86h-tubeless Yokohama Earth1: A nice all-rounder. https://tyres.cardekho.com/yokohama/earth-1e400/185-65-r14-86h-tubeless --MaheshAnswered 26 Apr 2017 08:17:34
- Q.For verna fludic which tyre u r recomand sirA.
Hi Vaishnavi, To begin with, you can go for Yokohama Earth-1 tyres. They offer good handling and traction over wet and dry surfaces. On top of it, the silica infused compound lends it a good tread life. In case you want something better in terms of ride quality and comfort then you can look at Bridgestone Turanza AR20 or Michelin Energy XM2. While both these tyres offer superior performance, handling, braking and tread life, Michelin offers better ride quality than Turanza. RegardsAnswered 20 Apr 2017 04:03:57
- Q.Hello i own a Hyundai grand i10 asta diesel and the tyres are stock appolo which has almost reached its end just after 35000 kms. Its a 165/70/14 inch tyre but now im planning to change the tyre so is it ok if i can upsize the tyre to 185/75/14 tyre and if so which brand of tyres would you suggest. My main criteria is a lot of highway and city travel and i want a good tyre for comfort grip in all weather no drop in mileage good breaking and should be silent too. So i have heard about the yokohama earth1. Is this a good tyre to buy or is there a better option which excels this brand. Thank youA.
Hello Irwin, The valid upsizes you can go for are 175/70 R14 or 185/65 R14. Upsizing would help the tyres get better road grip and overall braking efficiency would improve. As far as Yokohama Earth-1 is concerned, it is a very good tyre, comes with silica infused rubber compound which lends it very good wet and dry braking and good handling. Even the ride comfort on this tyre is good. However, if budget is not a concern then you can go for Michelin Energy XM2 . It is one of the best things you could go for, offers amazing ride quality, superior wet and dry traction and great tyre life. RegardsAnswered 23 Mar 2017 05:35:13
