Hi Ajay,

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.




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

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.

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.

Hi Ramit, I have Yokohama 185/70 R14 in my 2011 Swift Dzire ZXI. As the tire had worn out in 32K KMS, i am planning for change. Could you please advice a suitable model for me. The usage will be on mixed of little uneven roads [read Tamil Nadu state highways] and National highways.

Hi Ramparveen,

First of all, the reason for early wearing out of your tyres is that you are using wrong size of tyres. The stock on Swift Dzire is 165/80 R14.  The valid upsizes in same rim size are 175/80 R14 or 195/70 R14. If you use 195 the tyre wearing rate would still be relatively higher than 175.

You could try using Yokohama Earth-1 tyre, they are actually made very durable and offer good grip. Another good option would be Bridgestone Turanza AR20. It offers great traction, comfort and is quite durable.

Hi Siddharth, I have two questions for you: 1) I am looking to replace worn-out tyres of my Swift DZire(2009 Model). It has done 130K kms. First set was of MRF(70K) and the current one is BridgeStone. Would like to know which tyre is best for Indian road conditions. I drive 50:50 on city roads and village roads. 2) If I buy online, will the warranty hold good? Regards, Vaishakh

Hi Vaisakh,

Considering the fact that you use your vehicle over a mix of paved and unpaved/ uneven terrain,  MRF ZV2K would be a good tyre to begin with. And if you want something better then go for Bridgestone Turanza AR20 for your Swift Dzire. Even Yokohama Earth-1 tyre would be quite good, although not as good as Turanza.

And to answer the second half of your question, I can't be sure of other platforms, but if you book tyre through us then the warranty would certainly hold good.

Basically, you can book a tyre through us and then get it fixed from your nearby authorized outlet of that particular brand. So, in the end, you do end up buying from the genuine authorized centre. Hence, the warranty holds valid.

I am having dezire diesel engine car from Suzuki company and in 35000 km my Bridgestone tyres are need to replace because of wear and tear. Kindly guide me why this is happening.

Hi Naveen,

Generally tyres lasts for about 40,000-50,000 km. However this figure is just an estimated figure. Tyre wear depends on number of factors like your driving style, general maintenance like alignment/balancing and checking tyre pressures regularly.

i have a maruti swift dzire vdi 2009 model. i have done milage of 1,70,000 km. want to getnew tyres. which do u recommend. my vehicles touches speed breakers when it is full of passangers. plz advice to increase height so that it does not touch speed breakers

Read More

Hi Sir,

I will suggest you to switch to Bridgestone Ecopia tyres this time. You should notice slight increase in fuel efficiency and moreover they will also last longer. As for the problem with low ride height, get your suspension inspected as your car has done 1,70,000 km. If that doesn't help then you may alter the ride height using spacers in the suspension linkage but we will not recommend it as it will effect the handling also. 



I own a maruti swift dzire but not satified with company fitted mrf tyres

Hi Nidal,

I believe that your stock tyre size is 185/70R14. If you are not satisfied with the stock tyre grip then you can upsize to 195/65R14 (for 14" stock rim) or 195/60R15 (for 15" rim). Do give Bridgestone Ecopia range of tyres for best value and uncompromised performance.



I have swift desire vdi I have not yet changed the tyres yet competed almost 42000 km but condition of tyres looks good when should I change the tyres can I upgrade to 185 base currently it is 165 will it harm the performance of my vehicle I want to go for comfort which tyres now should I buy

Hi Sanjay,

Usually tyres wears off at around 50,000 km but this depends on multiple factor and can be different for everybody. You can check the tread depth with a help of 1rs coin- place a coin between the tread, if the head of Ashoka symbol is visible then its time to change tyres. For the upsizing, yes you can go for 185/70R14 if your stock size is 165/80R14.

I have a 2010 Maruti Swift DZire VDi. I am planning to replace all the tyres of my car, so please suggest which is the best tyre and size to go for.

Read More

The Maruti Swift DZire VDI comes fitted with 165/80 R14 tyres. You can stick to this tyre size only. You can fit the Bridgestone Turanza tyres on your vehicle as they are almost perfect for our conditions, and are reasonably priced too  . They are available in the same size. You can also fit MRF ZV2K 165/80 R14 tyres, they are decent tyres as well.
