Change swift vdi tyres

Hi Manish,

You can start with MRF ZV2K. It is a decent tyre and offers confident weta dn dry braking with a good tread life. However, if your priority is tread life then go for CEAT Milaze X3. CEAT says that this tyre lasts up to 1 lakh kms and offers good grip and comfort.

If you are interested in getting a tyre that offers better grip, handling and comfort then Yokohama Earth-1 would be a very good choice. However, a top of the line tyre in terms of grip, comfort, handling and safety would be Michelin Energy XM2.

I have mentioned tyres in the increasing order of their prices. So, MRF ZV2K costs the least of the lot while Michelin is the most expensive one.

Regards,

Ramit

For Maruti Swift vxi 2013, all tyres have completed 45000 km . Pl guide me in selecting new tyres

Hello Vinayak,

Since all the tyres have been used for around 45000 kms, it is in your best interest to change all of them. While I would be better able to suggest tyres on the basis of your requirements and basic needs, yet , I would try to cover as many bases as possible.

If you want tyres that offer decent performance but have longer tread life, then MRF ZV2K would be a good option. The downside is that these tyres are a bit noisy, especially at high speeds.

In case you want something better, then Yokohama Earth-1 would be a very good option. Not only are these tyres reasonably priced, but they also offer great traction, comfort and handling. Even the tread life is quite good.

However, if you want something top of the line, then go for Michelin Energy XM2 or Bridgestone Turanza AR20

Both these tyres offer superior traction, excellent handling and a very comfortable ride quality. While Bridgestone is more durable on rough roads, Michelin tyres offer better ride comfort and enhanced tyre life.

Which tyre is best for swift vxi cheap n best

Hi Kaushal,

" Best" is a relative term my friend. A little bit of specifity as to your requirements and preferences would have made my job easier. But anyway, a tyre which is not very expensive but and is also very good would be Yokohama Earth-1. It comes with a silica infused compound and makes for superior handling and performance and long tread life. 

In case you want a tyre with good grip and decent ride quality and more economical, then go for MRF ZV2K.

hello bro need to change my swift ldi front tyres please suggest ?165/80 R14 (85T) is suitable

Read More

Hi Jagadeesh,

Yes, 165/80 R14 would be the right tyre size as it is the stock size. In case you want to upsize then go for 175/80 R14. We would recommend folllowing tyres:

1 MRF ZV2K- Cost effective, decent road grip and long tyre life

2 Yokohama Earth-1 - Long tyre life, Comfortable ride quality, Good wet and dry grip, Better handling, Budget Friendly

3. Michelin Energy XM2- Superior wet and dry grip, long tyre life, great ride comfort, excellent safety, a litle expensive but worth it.

EXISTING TYRES ARE YOKOHAMA 185 /70 R14 FOR SWIFT, NO COMPLAINTS NOW I WANT TO UPSIZE TO 195/70 R14 AND ADVICE ME ABOUT THE BRAND YOKOHAMA S DRIVE / CONTINENTAL CC5 / APOLLO ALNAC 4 / PIRELLI ALL SEASONS

Read More

HI Vijay,

The tyre size that you are using right now is not appropriate. It is best that you upsize to 195/70 R14 or downsize to 175/80 R14.  If you upsize to 195 then please understand that due to the added weight of extra rubber the steering might feel a little heavy and the ride quality could be a little bumpy.

Out of the tyres mentioned by you, Yokohama S . Drive is a performance oriented tyre. It would offer superior performance, braking and high speed handling but would have less tread life due to softer tyre compound.

Pirelli All Seasons is a tyre that would offer superior comfort, wet and dry grip and long tread life.

Continental ContiComfort CC5 is also a very good tyre, offers good grip and performance and long tread life.

You can go for Yokohama if you are a spirited driver , but for normal usage go for Pirelli pr Continental, let budget be the deciding factor.

Hello Satya Pandre,

MRF ZV2K would be a good tyre to begin with. It is a good economical option and offers long tread life with good grip.

 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...Car is Swift ZDI (185/65 R15)- Want to upgrade to 195/65 R15 91H MRF ZVT tyres. Dealers are suggesting 195/60 R15 88T Bridgestone B290. Which is better option? Please suggest.

Read More

Hello Ajayjit,

Please go for 195/65 R15. It is the appropriate upsize for your vehicle. If you go for 195/60 then you are going for low profile tyres. which will get damaged easily over rough roads.

Bridgestone B290 is a good tyre, you can go ahead with it.
