Michelin and Bridgestone are more prominent according to our view and are of International standards
Infact - if correct then Bridgestone tyres are even used in Factory fitted i10
MRF, Apollo Tyre are Indian brands - they are well priced, economical - but may be if you desire even more - go with Bridgestone or Michelin.
Will recommend either of them to go in for
Do however check on :-
> Specs - Size - Tread - are they meeting Manufacturer specs
> Brand - will not suggest to choose in Chinese brand - if bridgestone cost Rs. 3700 for i10 tyre, chinese brand can come in around Rs. 2500 - but the eventual saving / durability / life and performance can not match that Bridgestone standard
Well - for Swift Zdi - 185/65 is what been recommended by the maker
Is there any specific reason - you considering for upsizing the tyres.
The Size 185 in 15 Inch Alloys is pretty stable to our view and no need of upsizing it as such is - you will only notice a marginal difference and that too only on highway drive with probably no difference on city drive.
For tyre Upgrade and ideal size - refer this post - mentioning upsizing requirement.
In terms of prices - set of 4 tyres will cost around rs. 20K - 22K for Michelin & Bridgestone.
MRF one should cost around Rs. 18K.
Bridgestone tyres to our view are considered better
B290 - i believe is the latest range of tyres from Bridgestone India - and yes is a superior product considering tyre tread & wear loss on Indian roads
Even the handling & grip and efficiency is claimed better in B290 over its relative competition range.
Bridgestone and Michelin are acclaimed to be marginally superior Worldwide
But - MRF Zlo tyres too are good - they are soft and comes with better grip and rubber at a budget price.
Will comment it this way - Have Bridgestone - if looking for premium brand with International repute - has MRF Zlo to offer almost similar performance but at a budget price from an Indian Tyre company.
I owe new wagon r model now I need to change m tyre I am going for apollo tyre is this tyre good for indian roads and as al m friends say apollo tyre doesn't have much grip on road I am confused wat to do
I have a ford figo diesel exi. I want new set of tyres with good alloy wheels. My preference is low fuel consumption, higher milage. I seldom go over 70kmph. or at max 90kmph. so high speed is not a concern/requirement. with good road condtn and good music system...tyre softness is not an issue too. plz suggest a good tyre and also if possible alloy wheel.
