They'll fit the stock alloys fine. A set of four should set you back by approx 17,000+

Continental ContiPremium: Exceptionally good on wet suface, some complaints do exist on quality, uneven wear and bulges
Bridgestone AR10: Supposed to be good. A safe bet because Bridgestone have had good success in India i.e lesser problems reported sans other manufacturers
Finally Earth -1: Bhpian Nikhilb2008 has given them a good rating and says they have focused on making the tyre stronger and long lasting.

My requirements is good comfort and long lasting tyres (50k kms) tyre noise needs to be low but not very low as the air con is on and audio is running most of the time.
I have not given them a good rating! Just to clarify! I've never used these tyres and what I've posted is mainly marketing from Yokohama.

Also, there is no issue with Continental when it comes to quality or bulges. They are among the more rugged tyres I've used. 37,000kms and no bulges but rims were bent. This shows how rugged the tyres are.

For your usage, I would think the CPC2 would be better as it's more of a high performance tyre. The Earth 1 is basically an entry level tyre.

B390 is a MPV special tyre excellent mileage tried and tested.
Continental conti pre, not developed to deliver mileage(may not be as per your requirement)
AR10 discontinued, AR20 available.
earth 1 and AR20 being new not many mileage reports.

My driver hit the car to the road devider and the front right type got burst. Changed it with Yokhama earth1. Currently its a spare tyre got it for Rs 4500/-. Now that the car has run for 32 K KMS plan to change other 3 tyres as well as one of the stock good year tyres is new which will be used as spare.. Can I get a better price?

Grip is fantastic compared to MRF ZV2K.
Steering feels planted.
Zero road noise on good roads.
I think the noise is higher of asphalt roads with less tar.

Still very early days, only 400 kms done so far.driven mostly on highways.

I am currently discussing the noise with parag on our forum to identify it is tire noise or something else.

Something that I always want. How is the sidewall? Is it hard or soft? Am used to hard sidewalls. Also, they still dont have 16" tyres. Do you have news regarding this as to when they can be expected? I'm waiting for this.

Side wall appears to be strong.
I have driven on poor to good roads. Tyres are OK, no issues so far, touch wood.

My Innova's gonna need a new set of tyres. The stock B390s have clocked over 65,000kms and need changing.
Now, I read the entire thread. Im confused about whether I should go for Yoko Earth-1 or C Drive ? Any advice guys?

Earth-1 in case you want a cheap tire toughened sidewall, better resilience on rough roads, long life and average grip and comfort

C.Drive if you are willing to pay a bit more, do lot of high speed driving, want excellent wet grip, high comfort and silence along with an average 45-55k tire life.

Hey any idea on what are the other sizes available in 13" with the earth 1? I upgraded my car's tyres with the A539 175/60 r13 last week, they are really nice. A big improvement over the previous jks but the earth 1s are new and seem to offer a lot more. Now I think to myself, I should've waited.

If you have to buy a new set now, I will recommend the Earth One as it's a newer tyre. It's an upgrade to the A Drive. Why go for an old outdated pattern when you have a better option available?
