Has anyone encountered a similar problem ? is it just the different pattern on tires that is causing this ? It wasn't the case with Bridgstones earlier, which I have used over 3-4 seasons before this.
you are spot on.This is due to the change in tyre pattern. Please check the air pressure also as mc5 is a soft compound tyre. You should maintain a little less than that of Bridgestone.

Which are the popular 185/70/14 models now?
I have Apollo Accelere now, which ran for 50K (on 4 tyres). I upgraded them from stock 165 at 60K...
I am now used to additional comfort of 185 and want to stick to them.
Suggestions welcome.

You would have discovered the Continental CC5 to be the answer had you flipped through the last few pages of the thread.

Hello, I'm getting a decent deal on stock Tyre replacement for my Swift in right out of showroom condition. I am planning on replacing the stock 185/65R15 with Continental MC5 205/60R15. My prime criteria is road noise reduction and increased grip on all surfaces. Can someone tell me if this would be a worthwhile upgrade on these parameters if the car comes with stock Bridgestone or Goodyear tyres?

Am using Michelin XM2 on nitrogen for the past year or so. Very comfort-oriented and decent for the city.

Hi guys,

Need your views on changing the tyres of my 10 year old Swift. It has run very little. Just around 50k kms now. I need to change my tyres. The car is currently running on the standard 165/80/14 ones. The running would not be too much and once in a while there would be highway runs. Can someone suggest which brand I can go for and what section considering that the ones that I have now have pathetic braking capability?

Cheers!

Bought a couple of 185/70 R14 MRF ZLO's for 3950 apiece from TVM. Balancing was free. Two new valves and alignment cost 450 more.
