Its unfortunate, the tyre is torn, you would have to replace.
Fortunately, you noticed. Otherwise, it could be worse.

Since the tyres are less than 1 year old, claim warranty . Its a cut and not a bulge. Act fast before the warranty expires

The Warranty Of MRF Tyres Is Of 3 Years Against Manufacturing Defect.

The Aspects of Warranty includes :

1.There is no guarantee for any cuts on the tyre after driving.
2.The Warranty of the tyre is against the bulging of the tyre.
3.The tyre would be sent to the company if there is any defect in the tyre And it would take 7-10 days for the engineers to take a decision.
4.The Warranty of the tyre stands void if there is any cut from inside or outside the tyre.
5.The Warranty of the tube stands void if the tyre/tube gets punctured.
6.The Warranty of the tube is of the nossle or if it opens up from the joint. and the too stands void if it gets punctured or gets used up.
7.The claim for the tyre and tube will be given after it gets passed from the company and would be according to the wear-tear of the tyre. The claim would not be in cash.
8.It is necessary to have the bill of the tyre/tube to claim the warranty.
9.There is no warranty against the leakage of the rim.

Point No 1 and 4 concludes it will not be covered under warranty.

I have setup a meeting with my Tyre guy this weekend to evaluate the damage and see what best can be done.

How does ZLOs side wall compare to Yoko A-Drives? A-drives have been pretty rugged on the pathetic roads that I drive and considering ZLO for my next tyre change.

That is really unfortunate. Hope you get positive response from the dealer. I am using ZLOs for 28000 kms now without any issue. Will check my tyres closely today after looking at your pictures.

I guess A-drives will have stronger sidewalls. I too drive on pathetic roads but that keeps me worried while driving. They are excellent for good roads though.

I would believe that the ZLOs have stronger sidewalls. The A drives are soft and we have had more complaints with A drives than ZLOs.

I switched from horrible Goodyear NCY's to ZLO's for my Swift. The car is transformed. Steering is more agile as also turn in. Ride although firm is more compliant and can take the potholes without us flinching. Roadnoise has reduced.


I could have gone for Michelin or similar but I wanted something robust for the potholes and roadworks going on around here.

Hi Guys!! Seeking for some advice from the tyre Gurus. Looking for a new set of rubber for my 2013 Swift Vdi. Currently running on Continental CPC2's ( 195/55/r15from my old swift) which need to be replaced asap. Now i was quite happy with its performance and would get another set, but wanted to see first how it compared to the ZLO in terms of comfort, grip, nvh, trye life etc.. wet weather grip is also a big concern for me. im looking for about 195/205-55/60-r15 tyres (although im leaning a bit towards 60 profile to help with ride quality) also, how does the Yokohoma C drive compare with the ZLO?
Im very grateful for any useful insights from you guys!!

Cheers!!

Just an update after 3000 km. The car has become a lot more pleasurable to drive. It has become very chuckable.

I also got the front suspension arms changed as well as the camshoft pully and bearing renewed. This plus the reduced road noise has made the Swift fairly refined. Car has done 70000 km

Summarising, considering, I might sell the swift within the next two years, I made the right choice. If I did a straight aswap from new, then the Michelins might have been my choice but the ZLO's are pretty good and made a optimum choice

Close your eyes and get the zlo. Have it on both my cars now. The grip levels are pretty close to the yoko advan neova I had before - the ride is better than the ad07 so overall its way more fun to drive. For the price they sell at, they are a steal. One car has since then done 20k km and the tyres have hardly worn.

195/60 r15 in cedia and 195/60 r14 in brio. I'd have loved 205/55 r15 in the cedia but it was not available then. As for bumpy roads, it is much better than the yokohama. The ride is firm but not uncomfortable.

Bivin, stick to 195/60-15 ZLO. If you want a more premium tyre, think about the Primacy 3ST. Otherwise dont think of anything else in between.
