Question Best tyres for Fiesta S

Hi all,

Which is the best replacement for the stock tyres in Fiesta 1.6S from comfort point of view. The stock tyres that come are 195X55X15 of Goodyear make.

Will Michelin Primacy LC 195 X 60 X 15 be suitable (they dont have the one in Stock size). Will going for higher profile tyre be a good move. Wont it spoil the whole balance.

Looking fwd for a expert advise.

Thanks

Jack, dont change the size.

In 195/55 R15, you have Conti CPC2, Yoko S drives, A Drives, Advan Neovas, Maxxis MA-Z1 as options.

My first preference would be the Conti CPC2 followed by the S drives.

Nikhil I think you missed my question earlier, anyways my friend is planning to get Pirelli p6 tyres for his dzire. What do you think about them ? Any other alternate options he should look out for ?

Thanks Nikhil, for the suggestion. Is the Conti CPC2 recommendation from comfort aspect or performance aspect? I am looking from comfort point of view.

Note from Mod : This very general tyre thread is now being closed. We have several car-specific upgrade threads where tyre options may be discussed.
