    Hi,
    My stock Punto Apollo Accelere 195 60 R15 has done 41K kms. Its due for change. Im considering below tyres. Pl suggest which one to go for.

    1 preference) Primacy 3ST
    2 pref) Bridgestone Turanzo AR 60
    3 pref) MRF ZLO

    Many people in net are saying Primacy 3ST softwall may not withstand potholes, hard roads. Im looking for reliable hassle free tyre.
    My maindrive will be 70% city and 30% highway.

    Thanks for your suggestion.

    @moksh thanks. Does the soft sidewall withstand the bad Indian roads

    @Esakki Sundar I don't use these tires as well . I am a falken fan , but michelin are known to be preimum in the tyre market and heard always good reviews.

    I guess the Turanzo would trump the Michelin only on puncture resistance scale as the later does have softer sidewalls. Except that the Michelin should be better at other aspects.

    I didnt choose P3ST (or any other silent tyres) because I drive on all types of roads very frequently. So soft tyres wasn't a choice for me at all. Based on reviews for all-weather tyre tests, I have purchased Continental ContiMaxContact MC5. Its been driven for 14K KMs so far on really very bad patches, harsh summer (45+ degrees in Nagpur) and heavy monsoon (last week). I am satisfied with its dry/wet grip and lesser noise.

    Actually, thats what I have heard as well that the MC5 strikes the right balance between noise and puncture resistance.

    @ViPr: I believe MC5 is also soft compound.
