- Q.hi i need to change tyres for my xylo pls suggestA.
Hi Smitha, Goodyear Wrangler RT/S Tyre would be a good tyre to begin with for your Xylo. And if in case you want something better then go for Yokohama Geolandar A/T-S. It performs really well over rough terrains. If you use your vehicle strictly over highways/ paved roads then you can go for Falken Wildpeak H/T01 or Bridgestone Dueler.

- Q.what are recommended tyre for Land Rover Freelander 2Michelin Latitude Tour HPPirelli Scorpion VerdeLand Rover FreelanderYokohama Geolandar A/T G015Michelin Latitude Sport 3A.
Hi Sanjeev, Let me try to answer your by addressing different scenarios. 1. For Spirited driving- If you are someone who loves to drive this vehicle in a spirited or enthisiastic way, then I would suggest you to go for Michelin Latitude Sport 3 tyre. It would offer superb high speed control and improved steering precision. You can count on this tyre to keep your Freelander very stable on corners even at high speeds. 2. For extensive highway drives- If you undertake extensive highway drives then you require tyres that offer a very long tread life without comprising on safety and comfort. In such a scenario, I'd say you choose out of Michelin Latitude tour HP or Pirelli Scorpion Verde. Both these tyres offer superb wet and dry grip, along with good comfort and a quiet ride quality. Michelin Latitude, although, would offer longer tread life. 3. For mild off-roading or for rough roads- If you drive over rough roads or often take your car for off-roading excursions then go for Yokohama Geolandar A/T G015. It is a very durable tyre and takes over rough roads with great ease. It also offers a long tread life. Hope this would be of some help. Regards, RamitAnswered 14 Jan 2019 12:03:45
- Q.Bridgestone or Yokohama?A.
Hello Shanmugam Balasubramaniam, What you asked is analogous to which brand is better- Mercedes or BMW ? Can we answer this question without comparing specific models from these brands? No...right? Similarly, Bridgestone and Yokohama, they both are very good tyre brands. A better comparison can be drawn with regards to specific tyre models of these brands. If you let me know the vehicle and model for which you want to buy tyres, and a bit more about your requirements, then I guess I would be in a better position to help you.

- Q.want to buy a set of 4 tyres for Audi A4A.
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. Regards RamitAnswered 19 Jul 2017 12:58:23
- Q.For Ford Endevoure 2013 4x2 autoA.
Hello Uday, I think Yokohama Geolandar A/T-S would be very good tyres for your Ford Endeavour. These are all-terrain tyres, and hence, offer great performance on-road as well as off-road. The braking, grip and tyre life on these are very good. You could also go for Goodyear Wrangler, but Geolandar would be a better buy. In case you want something top of the line, then Michelin LTX Force would be the perfect option for you. These tyres offer excellent wet and dry grip and have a very long tread life and very short braking distance, making them very safe. They offer high durability and are suitable for off-road as well as on-road drives. Regards, Ramit RegardsAnswered 19 Jul 2017 11:45:47
- 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 99999440492A.
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 --MaheshAnswered 28 Apr 2017 03:27:43
- Q.I m gng to plan to upgrade types for my grand I 10 175/65/R14 82H is there any milage problem please reply meA.
Hi Pramod, If you go for a harder compound tyre, you get low rolling resistance. Which means, they are easy to spin at the cost of reduced grip. A softer compound will grip the road well at the cost of slightly reduced fuel efficiency. As the contact patch increases, the same thing happens; you increase grip and fuel efficiency reduces. There are extremes on both ends of the spectrum; the key is to find a balance. You've chosen a good tyre size for the upgrade but you could face problems with the increase in the overall diameter of the tyre. The speedometer and the odometer could also be affected. As you increase the width, you'll have to decrease the sidewall. 175/60 R14 will be closer to the stock tyre circumference but because of its weird combination, it's very rare tyre spec and not easy to come by. I'd advise you to stick with the factory spec and choose a softer tyre to improve the grip and handling. Here are some options: 165/65 R14 Earth 1 is a very quiet tyre with grip levels better than the factory fit tyres. https://tyres.cardekho.com/yokohama/earth-1e400/165-65-r14-79t-tubeless 175/60 R14 Yokohama C Drive is another one to consider for 175-section tyre. https://tyres.cardekho.com/yokohama/c-drive-a539/175-60-r14-79h-tubeless --MaheshAnswered 27 Apr 2017 04:54:58
- Q.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.A.
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. https://tyres.cardekho.com/bridgestone/turanza-ar20/165-80-r14-85h-tubeless Yokohama Earth 1 is another one to look at. It's even better at containing road noise: https://tyres.cardekho.com/yokohama/earth-1e400/165-80-r14-85t-tubeless 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. https://tyres.cardekho.com/mrf/zlo/185-70-r14-88t-tubeless 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. --MaheshAnswered 26 Apr 2017 05:55:42
- Q.i m thinking change my tyre with yokohama tryes.bcz i m buying new ELITE i20 car . the showroom has recommended yokohama 16 inchs tyre with mag wheelsA.
Hi Narendra, Mag wheels are good, 16 " tyres would be good too and Yokohama is great..so far everything seems to be quite good. Yokohama A- Drive would be a good tyre to begin with. In case you want something better then go for Yokohama S- Drive. However, keep in mind that these are performance oriented tyres. So while they will offer great performance and handling, they will wear out relatively soon as they are made up of soft rubber compound for high grip levels. In case you are looking at something which offers quiet and comfortable ride quality and has longer tyre life then go for Continental Conti Max Contact MC5. RegardsAnswered 14 Dec 2016 10:33:19
