Default Re: Honda Brio : Tyre & wheel upgrade thread

I got the following 3 quotations on rubber:

1. Michelin XM2 185/65 R14 - Rs.4560/tyre (No further discounts even if I buy more) - comes with 3 years warranty
2. Yokohama Earth 1 - 185/65 R14 - Rs 4300/tyre - 5 years warranty.
3. 195/60 R14 is not available with Michelin but only in Yokohama S drives (if I recall correctly) around 4900/- for each wheel. Does the ride comfort goes down with this configuration?

Experts - please advice.

Hey guys, I am planning to upsize to 15's on my Brio. Any idea where I can get Rota Shakotan wheels?

Well got new shoes for my Brio. Went with the 1st option - Michelin XM2 - 185 65 R14 @ Rs. 4560/tyre, and what an upgrade it is. I have started loving it. The tyres are super silent. There is a remarkable difference in the tyre noise reduction. These being my first Michelins I never thought that I would make out the difference so easily. I will post some pictures soon.

I just bought a new Brio and got JK Vectra stock tyres. I've heard that it's unreliable and this is a Feb manufactured car so I'm sceptical about the rubber quality anyway. Can someone please recommend a good upgrade? I'm unsure about an upsize to 185 section tyres as my dealer says that would end my warranty. Is that true?

Changed the Yokohama A-Drives tyres on my Honda Brio after five years and 40,500 kms to a set of five Michelin XM2. You can read more at this link (Michelin XM2 Tyres in India)

I drive a 2013 Honda Brio V MT with 32K on the odo and pondering over upgrading rubber for better grip and lesser noise. Are the Michelin Energy XM2 (185 65 R14) the best choice ? are there any better options at similar price ?

Shiva,

For Brio, 185/65 R14 is a perfect upgrade.
In that size Michelin XM2 is the best option available.

I recently upgraded to 185/65/14 on my Brio - it is well within the safe parameters for an upgrade. Got the XM2s and the ride is super smooth - increased GC of 6-7 mm being an added bonus.
