I’ve shortlisted tyres from 3 different brands – Continental, Bridgestone & Yokohama.
BHPian Vedant Gupta recently shared this with other enthusiasts.
I am planning to change all 4 tyres on my 3rd gen Honda City. I had the OEM fitted Michelins which lasted about 40K kms. I then switched to Goodyears which have been quite disappointing.
I am not able to get the latest stock for Michelins and therefore they have been dropped.
I have shortlisted three tyres for the size 195/60/R15:
- Continental UC6
- Bridgestone Turanza ER 60
- Yokohama Bluearth AE-51
Ride quality and comfort are my priority.
The prices of all the three are almost in the same range although the Bluearths are harder to come by. I have asked at least three dealers in Mumbai and they all are pushing for Earth-1 tyres.
Here’s what BHPian sagarpadaki had to say about the matter:
If ride quality and comfort are a priority, consider Continental Comfort Contact 6 (CC6).
Here’s what BHPian shankar.balan had to say about the matter:
Actually, I’m going to break the mould here. Because I am very satisfied with the MRF Perfinzas that I’ve put on my Dad’s Toyota Glanza – 295/55/16.
Soft. Pliant. Comfortable. Silent. Grippy.
This is a worthy product.
And I’ve put my money where my mouth is.
Here’s what BHPian RedTerrano had to say about the matter:
Recently I shod my Terrano with Bridgestones and I am very well satisfied with the ride quality, braking bite and overall handling.
I’d say go with the Bridgestones.
