Are Apollo Accelere's or Sportz good to put in a Magnum Diesel? Otherwise what new tire is recommended other than Goodyears. tsk1979 Thanks for the reply below. I've got two Acelere's 185/60/14 on my Marina in the front. Did a run to Goa and back from bombay and was very happy considering I had Goodyears earlier. This was like awesome.

Go for apollo. They are jack of all trades kind of tires. Not excelling in any one area, but doing good in all.
Check the speed ratings. If Acelere good enough then go for them, otherwise sportz is always there!

The new Optra Magnums comes with Apollo Acelere as standard in 195/60 R15. So, no worries!

I thought the Hyundai i20 came with 14 size rims.
175/70 R14
185/65 R14
How come you have 195/60 15?

Nikhil thanks for that info on new magnum tires. I was having a look at their website. Acelere, Sportz and Aspire. Need to check out prices. Just nearing 40k kms and the Goodyear have been shaking the steering for a long long time.

Guys, I've lately started driving my bro's i20 which has Aceleres and these are noisy. Even the Yokohama A539's on Xing don't make so much noise. The noise is quite audible while driving on aged roads, I'm very much upset with this noise. Now I think it was a wise decision on my part to go for XM1+ on my uncle's Xing than Aceleres.

And if we assume that your jibe about us knowing nothing about tyres or driving for that matter as a fact then can you please explain how our Indian companies have *NEVER* made a mark on any developed market abroad? And mind you, Korean companies like Kumho and Hankook are making great progress in developed markets so please don't give us that usual crap.

P.S. If you are indeed involved with one of the above mentioned companies, it would be a good idea to make a commercial declaration about the same right now.
Thats because people like you and me and others reading this, run this country.

You, yourself is a provider of service in a company as an employee (or businessman). Is it ok for me so say that the service that you provide is not up the park as compared with globally?

Think again, you are only slapping on your face if you choose not to appreciate the goods and service provided by indian companies.

Thats the problem with i series hyundai cars and not the tyres. Even i thought it was the apollo tyres, but eventually found out its only i series hyundais that makes noise with apollos. Its due the fact that the wheel arches have less damping factor which lets the noise come inside the cabin a lot.

My friend has a i20 with stock apollo and my bro just bought figo and upgraded to apollo. i20 has tyre noise and figo doesn't and both have same tyres.

My car came in with acelere's. It has only done 3000 kms (two trips to shimla and rest in delhi) I have had three punctures so far, they are rather soft.

Abhibh, I appreciate your find but such high noise level is primarily attributed to the tyre. To some extent the damping factor (if true) can be held responsible but ultimately the tyre is the culprit in my view. Thank God my friend upgraded to XM1+ on his i20, the noise factor isn't much of an issue.

Default Re: Apollo Acelere - How are they?

Dad's IndigoCS is runing the original BS tubed type - s322 I think - at 28k kms. One of the tyres has lost its sidewall and beading - so I thought its a good opportunity to switch to tubeless ones though all current ones have decent tread levels left. A lot many recommendations seem to point at the Acceleres as the smart choice - though at 3.7k per tyre (quote from Tyre Empire, Whitefield) I'm unsure about these over Bridgestones etc. Any long term reports ?

Also - any ideas on how much do tyre guys give for the older ones ?

I'd stick with Bridgestone.I used the Acelere for my Swift D and wasnt satisfied.Too much of road noise and the tires didnt last long(Hardly 25k kms)
