Need a 205/55r15 tyre. Confused between yoko s.drive vs continental contimax contact MC5 vs MRF ZLO. Which one is best considering 1500km/month drive of 90% city

Hello Rohit,

While all the tyres mentioned by you are good, I would suggest that you go for Continental ContiMaxContact MC5 followed  by Yokohama S.Drive and then MRF ZLO.

Continental ContiMaxContact MC5 offers superior wet and dry traction, precise handling and a very comfortable ride quality.

Hi Manish,

If you're running the XUV on mostly roads, then look at this Bridgestone Dueler:

But if you also take pleasure in going mild off-roading with sand and slush, then this Goodyear Wrangler will serve better:

The world knows how good the Fiesta is as handling and it takes corners with impossible composure. But a good set of tyres can also improve the dynamics of any car. A set of performance tyres will amplify the Fiesta's personality. Look at this Eagle F1 Run Flat tyres:

Good news: In the case of a serious emergency, you can use them without fixing the puncture. Although it will ruin the alloy wheel and the tyre. They have stiff sidewalls for good cornering grip. Comfort will be compromised and the tyre won't last very long either.

As an all-rounder, you can consider the MRF ZLO:

I want to upsize the tyre for my FIAT PUNTO ACTIVE.. Currently Im Using 165/80 R14.. Please suggest me the appropriate upsize. I drive in Highways and rough roads. i drive in 110 Km/h speed.

HI Arun,

 

I'd suggest maintaining the same size but opting for a softer compound tyre for better grip on highways. With an upsize, you run the risk of either tyres rubbing against the wheel well or you'll have to opt for low profile tyres, which will take away the comfort on rough roads.

This Bridgestone Turanza is the same size as your existing tyre. It's good for touring, contains road noise and offers excellent wet road grip.

Yokohama Earth 1 is another one to look at. It's even better at containing road noise:

However, if you absolutely want to upsize, then here are two options to consider with the tyre spec 185/70 R14.

MRF ZLO is the first. It displaces water very well at the cost of contact patch for dry conditions.

The Turanza is another tyre that's almost as good at displacing water but maximises the amount of rubber in touch with the tarmac for maximum dry grip.

Hi Abhimanyu,

If the vehicle you are using is Swift ( which you forgot to specify in your previous mail ), you should go for size 205/60 R15 . 

In this size you can use MRF ZLO , to begin with. You can also consider using Yokohama AVS db V550. It offers great traction and superior comfort.

In case you want performance oriented tyres then start with Bridgestone MY02 Sporty Style tyre. Another good option would Bridgestone Potenza GIII

Hello, I have Chevy SAIL sedan car with 175/70 R14 tubeless. Now i am looking at replacing the same all 4. I have shortlisted between MRF ZLO 185/70 R14 and Michelin 185/70 R14. Please can you suggest which is better?

Hello Srinivasa,

While MRF ZLO is a pretty good tyre, Michelin Energy XM2 is better. Go ahead with it.

It depends on your driving preference. If you want a more comfort oriented tyre that performs decently well in different road-conditions, go for the Yokohama AC01 or C-Drive. The MRF ZLO though is an out and out performance tyre and is made of softer compound. It will have less tread life but will offer superior road grip, braking and handling charateristics. Also, the MRF ZLO will turn out to be a more expensive purchase in comparison to Yokohama.
