    Q.
    Swizt Dezire Zxi mode 2011l, car has run for around 28000k kms. Tyres are getting repeatedly punctured.tyre condition is ok. What should I do
    A.

    Hi Kanchan,  Tyres usually have a shelf life of 5 years, post which they lose their grip efficiency and get punctured often.The tyres on your vehicle are older than that, so, I think it is best that you replace all 4 tyres for optimum safety, comfort and convenience. 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, good comfort and precise 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. Regards, Ramit

    Q.
    Want to buy a set of 4 tyres for Maruti Swift Dzire VDI.Mostly used in Rural area.
    A.

    Hello Anil, Since the usage would be in rural areas, I would suggest that you go for Goodyear Assurance Duraplus tyres. These tyres come with DuPont Kevlar technology, which makes these tyres very durable against cuts and abrasions. Their traction level is also quite good, and the comfort level is decent. You may also look at MRF ZV2K. These tyres are also very durable and offer good performance and comfort.  If tyre durability is your priority then go for Goodyear Assurance Duraplus, but for over-all better performance, MRF ZV2K would be a better option. Also, you might consider using tyre sealant in new tyres. This is a cost effective solution that protects tyres from punctures. These are pretty easy to find in the market, are very reasonably priced and very effective. Regards

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

    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.

    Q.
    Hello i have a swift zxi model. My company fitted tyres is 185 65 R 15 ZVTV 88 of Mrf. And i have driven 64000 km. Now i have to replace my tyres. So i am confusing betweem apollo 4g tyres and mrf tyres. So plz tell me which one is best and if you have any other better option in these range so plz tell about that also. Thanku Love 99999440492
    A.

    Hi Love,   The stock factory tyres offer a decent balance of comfort, longevity, grip and cost. I'd recommend sticking with ZVTV if you want the tyre to last really long time. https://tyres.cardekho.com/mrf/zvtv/185-65-r15-88s-tubeless Optionally, you can also consider the Earth1. These are quite and comfortable and offer good straight line and cornering grip. https://tyres.cardekho.com/yokohama/earth-1e400/185-65-r15-88h-tubeless The XM2 is better at evacuating water on a wet road but those groves will result in a bit more noise compared to the Earth1. Cornering also may not be at par with the Earth 1 but straight line grip will be better because of more rubber contact patch. https://tyres.cardekho.com/michelin/energy-xm2/185-65-r15-88h-tubeless   --Mahesh

    Q.
    HELLO RAMIT IN MY SWIFT DEZIRE I HAVE 165 SIZE R14 TYRE AND I AM THINKING TO UPSIZE TO 205 TYRE SIZE WITH R14, SHOULD I GO WITH 205 OR NOT ? AND ALSO TELLS ITS ADVANTAGES AND DISADVANTAGES ?
    A.

    Hi, From 165 to 205, it is a very big upsize and will come with a lot of disadvantages: 1. Steering would feel very heavy 2. Handling will not be precise 3. Tyres will wear out soon 4. ride quality will be bumpy 5. Tyres will probably stick out of wheel arches 5. Fuel economy will drop. If you have to go for upsize then go for going for 195/70 R14 would be a good bet. Regards

    Q.
    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.
    A.

    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. Regards

    Q.
    Hi ramit , I am having a swift and i want to upgrade its tyre size - so should i only upgrade the tyres or should i upgrade the tyres and suspension too ?
    A.

    Hi Atul, If you are using Swift LXI/LDI or VXI/VDI variants, then the stock tyre size would be 165/80 R14. Plausible upsizes to this are 175/80 R14 and 195/ 70 R14. If you go for 195 then you might experience bumpy ride quality, heavier steering and a slight drop in the fuel efficiency. In case you are using ZXI/ZDI variants, then the stock tyre size is 185/65 R15 and plausible upsize would be 195/65 R15. You do not have to make any upgrades to the suspension system. General benefits of upsize include improved road grip and efficient braking. Regards

    Q.
    Hi Ramit, We are planning to exchange our currently used tyres for our swift pls recommend
    A.

    Hi Siddhi,

    MRF ZV2K would be a good tyre to begin with. It offers confident grip and long tread life. And if you want something better then go for Bridgestone Turanza AR20.

     In case budget is not an issue and you want tyres that offer supreme ride comfort then you could go for Michelin Energy XM2 tyres. They are the best of the lot.

    Regards

    Q.
    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?
    A.

    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. Regards
