    I have Punto(Diesel Emotion). Till now completed 15,500KM since Feb. 2014. Last few days, i found that one rear tyre has less nitrogen.I checked with local tyre center and found that bubbles and cracks. He fixed it but suggested to go for Michelin tyre.
    Car has Apollo tyres. He also said Apollo tyres have issues. He requested me to go for changing tube.
    Should i replace current Apollo by Michelin ?

    It depends on your budget basically and the swapping amount you get when you sell the tyres. If Good year has worked for you, then stick to it only. Its good to see that the tyres have withstood 42k kms.

    There are lot many options for tyres such as Michelin P3ST, Yokohoma A drives, Bridgestone GT3 etc. Even Apollo Alnac is a good tyre. & then there are Kenda, Falken etc too. Are you planning to keep the tyre profile same or upgrade it. Take an informed decision.

    I have a Punto (Diesel Emotion) and it has done around 48k on the stock Apollo Accelere and need to change the shoes on my ride. I have zeroed in on Yokohama Earth 1 tyres which are available in the 195 60 R15 size with the Yokohama dealers and with a quote for Rs.4750. Need to get suggestions about the performance of the Earth 1 tyres any suggestion would be appreciated.

    Hi Guys ,

    Checked with different dealers
    Michelin cost around 9500 a Tyre (i felt its costly :(... )
    Goodyear Eagle NCT5 around 7000 a Tyre --- felt this will be OK (Called and check with Good Year dealer in JC road)
    One dealer is suggesting me to go for Yokohama A Drive its around 7300
    One dealer in tamilnadu said he has pirelli and cost around 8000 (There is no dealers so thinking off)

    I used to drive normally max speed 120 Km in highway no rash or fast driving , 50 % highway and 50% city

    Kindly guide which one to choose GoodYear or Yokohama A Drive ... or can i for Michelin even its 10000 More

    Any one used Yokohama in Linea ... in my office on person is using Yokohama in Ford Icon (size is 185) 20000 KM tyre looks good only.

    Thanks and Regards,
    Nirmal Kumar N

    Have been using Hankook Ventus 205/55 r 16 on my car for the last 25000 kms. long terms report from my end is that, these tyres are really good value for money. Will rate them much higher than goodyear and Apollo acceleres. they still look asgood as new and have a lot of life left in them. very lesswear and tear, and really good grip in the wet. tyre noise is minimal, and looks a million bucks. on par with yokohamas. price range when i picked them up was around 6k per tyre.

    PS - my normaldriving is in the city, and with a few long drives ranging 1000-1500 km every couple of months. been cruising at 130-140 kmph forclose to 4-5 hours without any trouble. really confidence inspiring tires!

    Stick to GoodYear, but you can have the other (Assurance) series. Good Years are tough tyres with good sidewalls. My record is 1 minor puncture in 28000km of driving from the Expressways to the moon. (Shirdi-Nagar road as an example). I know folks who install tubes within tubeless Yokos just because of sidewall issues.

    I am thinking of changing my tyres of FIAT Punto 4yr old, having Primacy LC, run 35K. Stock tyres were comfort, less noisy and good road grip, but didnt gave good mileage (may be due to bad road conditions). I am from south Karnataka, which has moderate rains, roads are OK kind. NH 17 was in bad condition after rain though now the condition is OK. Looking for comfort, sporty look and good road grip.

    After several checks, narrow down to the following:
    Yokohama AVS DB/S-drive/C-Drive/Earth1

    Michilin Primacy LC/Pilot Sport PS3

    Thanks in advance
