Hi Kiran,

Please go for tubeless tyres. They offer great convenience and also improve handling.

You should look at buying Michelin Energy XM2 tyres of Bridgestone Turanza AR20 for your WagonR. Both these tyres offer superb grip, handling and tread life. They both make use of Silica in their rubber compound. This increases grip levels over wet surfaces and enhance tyre life. But Michelin Energy XM2 would offer a more comfortable and quiet ride quality.  

In case you want something cost-friendly, then go for MRF ZVTS. It offers confident wet and dry grip and a long tyre life, but is a bit noisy , especially at high speeds.

Yokohama Earth-1 is also a very good tyre and delivers a great performance. It is also priced somewhere between MRF and Bridgestone/MIchelin. So, if you can afford to spend a bit more than MRF then you should go for this.

Could you please suggest which company tyres is best for Honda city svmt (2015 model)?

Hi Mohit,

 You should go for Michelin Energy XM2 or Bridgestone Turanza AR20. Both these tyres offer superb wet and dry grip, precise handling and comfort. But out of these two, Michelin would offer a better ride comfort while Turanza would be more durable over rough roads. So, decide accordingly.

If you want something cost effective then go for Yokohama Earth-1 tyre.

Hi Vishal,

Since your running is mostly on bad roads, I'd say go for Yokohama Earth-1. It has been specially designed keeping Indian road conditions in mind, so it should be able to handle the usual abuses.

Conti CC5 is also a soft tyre, so avoid that. Bridgestone B290 is failrly durable but is a bit noisy and traction levels won't be as good as in Yoko.

Hi Lalit, 

While MRF also makes good tyres, I would still say that Michelin tyres are bit better. Go for Michelin Energy XM2. It would offer superb grip and comfort.

Please recommend Swift vdi tubeless tyres

Hello Jawaharbabu,

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.

Hi Ankit,

Sadly, there isn't a universal definition of "Best" when it comes to tyres. We all have our different priorities and preferences. But I would try to suggest you something which would tick all the right boxes.

You should look at buying Michelin Energy XM2 tyres of Bridgestone Turanza AR20 for your Xing. Both these tyres offer superb grip, handling and tread life. They both make use of Silica in their rubber compound. This increases grip levels over wet surfaces and enhance tyre life. But Michelin Energy XM2 would offer a more comfortable and quiet ride quality.  

In case you want something cost-friendly, then go for MRF ZVTS. It offers confident wet and dry grip and a long tyre life, but is a bit noisy , especially at high speeds.

Yokohama Earth-1 is also a very good tyre and delivers a great performance. It is also priced somewhere between MRF and Bridgestone/MIchelin. So, if you can afford to spend a bit more than MRF then you should go for this.

dear sir i am using i10 sportz. tyre specification 155/80 R13 79 S. can u suggest which comapany is good?

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 ZVTSwould be a good option.

Hope this helps.

Ramit

Hello Amol,

Since your majority of usage is over highways, you would require tyres that not only perform well over weta ndd ry surfaces but are also very safe and offer a very comfortable ride quality.

Keeping these factors in mind, I would recommend that you go for Bridgestone Turanza AR 20 or Michelin Energy XM2.

Both these tyres offer superior wet and dry grip, precise handling and control, effective braking but in terms of ride quality and comfort, Michelin is a tad better than Bridgestone. Michlein would also offer you longer tread life.

Drive safely !

Hello Roshan,

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.
