Hi Ramit, I have been suggested to replace the tyres on my 2014 Fluidic Verna 1.6 CRDI, which have done ~36K KMs. The car came with Bridgestone B250 175/70 R14 84H, and i wanted an opinion on the brand/model that i could go with as the replacement. The car is used mostly for city driving, i stay in Pune. thanks, SauravRead More
Since your Verna came fitted with Bridgestone B250, you can safely use Bridgestone B290. It is better than B250 in every sense. A better tyre than this would be Yokohama Earth-1. This is a silica based tyre and would offer superior grip and handling. It would also soak-up bumps better.
In case you want top of the line products then look at Michelin Energy XM2 or Bridgestone Turanza AR20. Both these tyres offer superb grip, comfort, handling, safety and tread life. But Michelin is a bit more silent than Turanza. However, if you use your Verna over rough roads then go for Turanza as they are more durable.
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.
In my previous reply I have recommended that you can go for 195/65 R14. Bridgestone MY02 Sporty Style is a very good tyre, go ahead with it.
Hello Gidz Rocky,
Going for a high profile tyre would be a litle ricky. The only option you could go for is 185/70 R14. In case you want a wider tyre, then go for 195/65 R14.
You can go for Goodyear Duraplus or MRF ZVTV tyres. Both these tyres are not very expensive but have good durabilty.

I have a fluidic verna 1.6 crdi sx 2011 model. The car has run about 44000 km. Do I need to change my tyres? If I do then which tyres should I buy? I have Bridgestone original tyres. I have seen Yokohama tyres with the following configuration 205/55R16. Will these tyres be compatible? Pls advise....Read More
Generally a set of tyre lasts for around 50,000km. You will have to decide for yourself if you need tyre replacement by looking at the tread depth. Talking about switching to 205/55R16 tyre size, then yes you can use 205/55R16 tyres if the stock tyre size is 195/55R16. We have Yokohama A-DriveandYokohama AVS DB in that size. A-Drive is a performance tyre whereas AVS DB is comfort oriented tyre.
Yes, you can go ahead and upsize to 205/55R16 tyre size from the stock size of 195/55R16. The diameter difference between the two size is 1.77% (we recommend upsize if dia difference is under 3%) This size is available in Yokohama A-Drive. and you can go for it. The Yokohama A-Drive is a performance tyre so the grip levels of the car will improve considerably with the combination of increased contact patch and good tyre. In term of cost, the initial investment is very similar for both tyre sizes. However, the fuel efficiency might drop slightly with upsize but it will be negligible and not a drastic difference.
I will not recommend you to upsize to 185/70R14 from the original size of 185/65R14. Diameter difference between the two tyre size is 3.10% (We recommend diameter difference to be under 3%). There will be speedo error as the meter will display 103.10 Kmph at the actual speed of 100 Kmph. If you want to upsize, I will suggest you to go for 195/60R14 tyre size.
You can upsize the tyres on the your vehicle from 175/70-R14 to 185/65-R14. This will be a correct upsize and you won;t face any difficulties as such. Please go ahead.
