I have i10 and need to replace now. Pl let me which brand is safer and durable.
These two things are contradicting. A softer compound will offer good grip for better braking under emergency situations but will wear out faster. Harder rubber will last long but braking performance will be poorer. You have to find balance based on your usage.
I'd recommend the Michelin Energy XM2. It has only three centre gutters in the centre to hold water on wet roads as there more channels to push it outward. That increases the amount of rubber in contact with the surface. So you get good dry and wet weather grip with more rubber to shred before it's time to replace.
Both of these tyres will be quieter and grippier than the factory tyres you got with your car. The improvement will be noticeable.

Hi Ramit, I am looking for new tyres for my Nissan Versa 2012, actually the car has a Bridgestone B250 tyres, I am between buying the same or buy Micheline Energy instead. What do you think? the price is almost the sameRead More
Hands down, Michelin energy XM2 is a far better tyre. In case you are comparing Michelin Energy XM1 then go for Bridgestone B250 as it is more durable. In case your usage is more over rough or unpaved surface then Bridgestone Turanza AR20 would be a better option instead of Energy XM2.
