    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 same.

    Hi Erika,

    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.

    Dear Mr. Ramit Anand I am using Maruti A star (2012) and it travelled 48000 kms. I have the following queries requiring your guidance. 1. How to find out whether the tyres need replacement immediately or after six months. Some dealers advise immediate and some others sasy to replace after six more months. How to decide. 2. Which is the best upsize for best riding comfort and best road grip..? - a. without changing the rim and b. with change in rim size..? 3. Which is the best brand and model for the new tyres for best riding comfort and road grip (cost and mileage are secondary concerns)..? Thanks S. Balaji Ramesh from Chennai.

    Hello Mr. Balaji,

    1. Tyres usually run good for 40,000-45,000 kms and require replacement post that. Also, you must replace tyres if they are older than 5 years. This is because tyres have a shelf life of around 5 years after which they lose the oils which are responsible for providing the grip.

    This also hardens the rubber compound, decreasing grip levels. If you think that there is sufficient tread on the tyres, i.e more than 1.6mm deep and if the tyres are not older than 5 years then you could use them for a few more kms..max 1000 kms. But keeping safety in mind I'd say its best you replace them.

    2. In same rim size the best upsize would be 165/80 R13 and in 14" rims you should go for 165/70 R14. These size would offer better road grip and improved braking, without hampering riding comfort.

    3. Since budget is not much of your constraint, I'd say that you go for Michelin Energy XM2 tyre or Bridgestone Turanza AR20. Both these tyres offer superior grip and comfort. Ride comfort is a bit better in Michelin but Turanza AR20 is more durable to rough road conditions.

    Regards
