Published On 17-Feb-2020 19:25:08By TyreDekho Team

There are so many tyre brands to choose from. But these 5 brands have made a strong hold in the market on account of their good quality products, reliable services and a few other factors.

Tyre on car

9 out of 10 times, you’d neglect the tyres on your car except for that 10th time, when you would decide to replace them. And this is where you start pulling out your hair.

This is just the tip of the iceberg. “Should I go for the existing brand and model or opt for some other brand? If some other brand then which one? “, you ask yourself. And then comes in the budget part, which makes things all the more tricky.

So, let us simplify things for you. These are the top 5 tyre brands, in no particular order, that make reliable, safe and high quality tyres.

 1. MRF

Top 5 Tyre Brands To Consider When Buying Tyres For Your Car

Madras Rubber Factory (MRF) is the largest tyre manufacturer in India, and makes tyres for almost everything- right down from a moped to airplanes. But let’s just talk about car tyres for now. Here they simply rule the charts, be it in replacement market or original equipment contracts.

They make tyres for cars of all segments, ranging from entry level hatchbacks to high-end luxury vehicles. For this, MRF has a vast range of products, which stretches from budget tyres to more expensive ones. But don’t get the wrong impression. Even their budget tyres are far safer than those from many other brands.

With constant innovation, superb R&D and competitive pricing, MRF tyres are one of the safest and reliable tyres you can go for. A few of their popular tyres are MRF ZVTV, ZLX and Wanderer series for SUVs. Last year they launched Perfinza series that are specially designed for high-end luxury vehicles.

2. CEAT

They have been one of the oldest, and definitely, one of the most trustworthy tyre manufacturers in India. While company’s roots can be traced to Italy, CEAT brand is as Indian as it could be. Is that a bad thing? Absolutely not, because this gives them an in-depth understanding of needs of an Indian buyer.

They make good tyres, maybe not as good as their Japanese or French counterparts, but definitely good ones. And in past few years we have seen CEAT churning out some really fantastic tyres, all thanks to an increased focus on R&D.Their latest passenger cart tyre, CEAT Milaze X3, can last up to 1 lakh kms, says the brand.

They are also one of the few brands to offer unconditional warranty on their products. ( Read this with a *, because this unconditional warranty has a few conditions, but it is still assuring).

 3. Apollo

This is one Indian brand that has grown very fast. Be it acquiring international brands or gaining on original equipment contracts, Apollo is certainly making its mark. This can be well attributed to good quality tyres and aggressive marketing campaigns. Their Alnac series and Apterra series tyres are particularly popular with automakers as original equipment. A key area of focus in these tyres is the handling over wet surfaces and confident braking. Apollo recently roped in Sachin Tendulkar as its brand ambassador, perhaps to associate reliability, endurance and long lasting performance with their tyres.

4. Bridgestone

From Indian giant, let’s move on to the leader on international charts. Bridgestone is world’s largest tyre manufacturer. They certainly make one of the best high-quality tyres in the world. The Japanese brand also has an expansive range of products, from the ones that fit on to your humble hatch to the ones that go on super cars and superfast SUVs. Opting for a bridgestone tyre pretty much guarantees superior traction, safety and comfort.

In India, their popular tyres include Bridgestone B290, Turanza series for highway touring, Dueler series for SUVs and the more recent Ecopia- the fuel efficient series.

 5. Michelin
