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

Looking for best tyres for ford EcoSport 205/60r16.. please throw some light on the recommendation. Currently it runs on MRF.

Hi Janarthanan,

I would recommend that you go for Bridgestone Firestone FR500 tyre for your Ecosport. The tyre offers a very good ride quality and superior traction along with good good durability over rough or un-paved roads.

In case you want a better tyre then go for Continental ContiMaxContact MC5 tyre. It would offer even better ride comfort and suoerior handling with exceptional grip.

However, if budget is not a constraint and you want to go for something top of line then Michelin Primacy 3ST would be a very good option. This tyre offers an extremely comfortable ride quality, long tread life and excellent grip and handling.

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 ?

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.

Regards,

Ramit.

Hello Anil,

Keeping your requirements in mind, I would suggest that you go for Falken Azenis PT722 , to begin with, for your SX4 ZXI. It is a very good tyre and offers superior traction with precise handling and a very comfortable ride quality.

 And in case you want something better then go for Michelin primacy 3 ST. This tyre offers superior traction, excellent handling, a very comfortable ride quality and  reduced braking distance for high safety, especially on wet roads. The tread life on this tyre is also very good.

want to buy a set of 4 tyres for Audi A4

Hi Manoj,

Goodyear excellence would be a good tyre for your Audi A4, to begin with. It offers a very comfortable ride quality and is widely used as an Original Equipment on various luxury vehicles.

Another good option would be Yokohana DNA db ES501 tyre. This tyre is popular for its very quiet and comfortable ride quality along with great handling and traction.

Another good option would be Michelin Primacy 3ST. This tyre offers great comfort, even on rough roads, along with superior grip along and enhanced tyre life- A great value for money option.

In case you want something top of the line, then Pirelli Cinturato P7. This tyre triumphs in all spheres including traction, ride quality, quietness and handling. The tread life on this is pretty good as well.

best tyre for skoda superb 2007.Should i keep 205/55 r 16 or change to 215/55 r16

Hi Kouru,

Michelin Primacy 3ST would be a good tyre to begin with. In case you want something that offers better ride comfort and very low tyre noise then Yokohama AVS DB V550 would be a very good tyre. Bridgestone Turanza GR90 wuld also be a very good option. It offers longer tread life as compared to Yokohama. In case you want tyres that are performance priented then Hankook Ventus V12 Evo would be a good option.

I think 205 is a good amount of width, so you do not have to upsize. However, if you want better grip and efficient braking then go with 215/55 R16.

Dear sir, I want to change tyres of my Swift Dezire Zxi model 2014. I am willing to bit upsize for smooth riding as I drive daily for min 70 km to office. Can I go for Michelin or Continental size 195/65 R15 91V?

Read More

Hello Rajeev,

Go for Michelin Primacy 3 ST or Continental Premium Contact-2 would be good options. You can go for any of them as they both offer a very comfortable ride quality.

You can upsize to 195/65 R15. While this upsize will not improve the comfort, it would improve the road grip and braking efficiency as the tyres are wider.
