Ceat fuel smart,Ceat grip Ln,goodyear assurance triplemax,fallen sincerity sn835,Apollo alnac 4gs,Apollo amazed 4g life, Bridgestone Firestone fr500, Bridgestone b250, Bridgestone b390,continental conticomfort contact cc5,Yokohama earth 1e400, Bridgestone turanza ar20,Michelin energy xm2,pireli scorpion atr or pireli p4 four season plus.Thank yoRead More
Well, those are a plenty of options to choose from. So I would try to narrow things down and help you make an informed choice.
1. If budget is not a constraint, then I would suggest Michelin Energy XM2 Or Bridgestone Turanza AR20. While both these tyres would offer excellent wet and dry grip, very responsive braking, superb ride comfort and long tread life, Bridgestone would be a bit more durable on rough roads while Michelin would offer a more comfortable and quieter ride.
2. If you want something economical then go for Yokohama Earth 1. It comes with a silica infused tread compound and hence offers superior wet and dry grip and long tread life. Even the handling and comfort would be very good, albeit not as good as with Turanza or Energy XM2.
3. In case you want something more economical, then you can look at Bridgestone B290 or Goodyear Assurance Triplemax. These tyres offer confident wet and dry grip and adequate ride comfort. Both these tyres offer similar performance, but Bridgestone would offer longer tread life.
4. If you drive over rough/ unpaved roads then go for Bridgestone Firestone FR500. It offers confident grip and performance, and is quite durable to rough surfaces. Also, If I am not wrong then Bridgestone is offering unlimited 2yrs warranty on Firestone tyres. You could check about this on their website.
Hope this helps.

My Ertiga zxi has done 50K kms in stock Goodyear tyres. Need to change it now. I am little bit sceptical about Aeolus quality. As I am looking for budget tyres ( don't want to compromise on safety ), can you pl help me to choose between Aeolus, JK or CeatRead More
I can very understand your concerns. It is a good thing that safety is one of your top priorities. While Aeolus tyres are quite safe, yet, it won't be a bad idea if we look at the already established brands which have been offering good quality products since long.
So, the safest bet for you would be to go for Ceat tyres. Go for Ceat Gripp LN tyre. It offers good performance along with a comfortable ride.
However, if you can stretch your budget by just a bit, then you can buy MRF ZVTV tyre. This tyre has a very long tread life, is very safe and offers good performance. It is, however, a bit noisy, especially at high speeds.
