Guys, how bad is Goodyear NCT5 compared to Bridgestone B250/Michelin MXV8 for Civic. From other threads it seems the main issue with NCT5 is road-noise. Any other negatives ? Is it absolutely bad or just not as good as B250/MXV8 ? Thanx.

Guys,
I am planning to upgrade the tyres on my spark without switching to alloys. The plan is to fit the new tyres in the OE rim itself for now.

The current profile I guess is 155/70/13. I want to change to Michelin XM1+. Can some one tell me what would be the best and safe profile in 13 that I can switch to?.

Also let me know the approximate price per tyre. Thank you.

Default Michelin

I'm hoping to upgrade to Michelins XM1+ from Goodyear GPS2. Hoping they're the best.

I started with Yoko A drives, nothing beats the price, and the looks and matched with stupendous grip both on dry and wet. But, and this is a very big "but". The sidewalls are very very weak; lost three tires within the 1st 4500 kms. I drive in Delhi and the roads are pretty okay compared to the rest of India. That is when I moved to Michelin XM1s. Great tires.

diiesoline, could you be more specific regarding the 3 tire you lost. Were they due to sidewall damage. Also were you driving them at lower than recommended pressure. I plan to upgrade my tires and was considering Yokohama's too.

Huh!? Well, I drive them in Poona and around where the roads suck! Guess have roughly covered the distance you mentioned... and zero issues yet!

Wilds - Mate I get my tire pressue checked and everyday, just a habit that I have developed to extract good mileage. The tyres did not lack the recommended pressure of 30 PSI.

More details of the such issues maybe found here -

Raccoon - Bro all I can say is either I am a very unlucky man or you are a very lucky man. I pray that it is the later and your A-drives outlast your car

Cheers!!

Diiesoline ---- You are unlucky. Lots of guys here with A drives and there have been about 2-3 complaints. Not more when you consider the huge number of people using A drives all over the country.

Try Yokahama. I tried Michelin and Yokahama both are good in terms of life and handling. Michelins have become costly now, it has gone up in the last 1 year.

I have Adrive from Yokahama now!

Bridgestone Turanza is a good alternative for Yokos and Michelins if cars are driven on bad roads. Turanzas have great side walls.
