Thanks for the review!
Tyres are usually priced at a premium at ASC, and I'm sure it'll be cheaper at tyre dealerships outside.

At Ashoka Tyres, Hyd, the tire is priced at Rs 4.2k. Alignment and Balancing is additional Rs 800. Valves at Rs 50 each. Total comes to Rs 17.8k. Not bad I guess?

For valves, we purchase MGP ones which cost 28 rupees each and are of excellent quality too, compared to the local ones where prices vary according to the segment of your car.

For tyres, try to bring them below or around 4k.

Hi,

I was on the lookout for 205/55/R16 tyres for my Fiat Linea TJET. The stock Goodyear Eagle NCT 5 tyres were giving me a lot of trouble with punctures almost every week. They had run around 35000 Kms and still had a decent amount of tread in them. However a few recurring punctures and air loss has left me looking for a new tyre instead of adhoc solutions.

Went through various threads on tyres , I did not want to spend a lot on the tyres as I might sell my Vehicle in a year or two. Had almost decided on Ceat Gripp LN tyres , but could hardly find them, in the size required. Called multiple dealers but no-one had stock.

Almost decided on Yokohoma Earth 1 as it was the next most economical option. After enquiring at a few dealers in and around the Viman Nagar Area/Nagar Road, went to Poona Tyre House near Wagholi to ask for a quote.
This dealer was quoted as giving a good price in other threads on this forum as well.

Poona Tyre house guys are amazing, he gave me the lowest price I have received as yet on the Yokohoma Earth 1 tyres (Rs 6500), but suggested I go for Goodyear Assurance Triplemax instead.

The Goodyear Assurance Triplemax we priced almost Rs 450 less than the Yokohoma Earth 1's and also had an unconditional 2 year/50% Tread warranty. I was slightly apprehensive only about tyre noise as my stock Goodyear Eagle NCT 5 were extremely noisy. But the dealer assured me that these tyres are different from the NCT's and are quiet.

Finally the warranty is what made me switch. Bought 4 of these tyres at Rs 6150/- per piece and got the wheel balancing done from there as well.

Initial thoughts on the tyre, they are indeed quiet compared to the stock Goodyear Eagle NCT's. The tread pattern is nice and clean, and the quality and feel of the tyre does seem very good. I am yet to ride a lot to say anything much about the ride quality, but so far it is better than the stock tyres.


thanks,
Kart

I have a general query for all .

We bought a new Creta recently which came shod with GY Triple max 215/60 R17 tyres .

The car has just done a little under 200 km. On our weekend drive, while driving back from Lavasa, one of the tires just went bust. Could have hit a pothole, or a stone but can't recall anything as such.

Can I claim the no questions asked warranty on a tire that came from the Hyundai Factory? Will GY honor the warranty for these tires as well?

Had pinged my friend who is a tyre dealer. As per him, technically you cannot. The tyres have to be registered with Goodyear and you also need to have the warranty card and bill.

Try with your Hyundai dealer, if they agree to get it replaced. I'd also recommend mailing to Goodyear.

Take it up with Hyundai dealer and see what best they can do. If you are not satisfied with their solution; you can take it up with Goodyear.

They will consider car registration date as sales date.

Given car has clocked only 200 kms, it would most probably be a free replacement unless they attribute fault to external factors outside purview of warranty.

Yes, checking is worth it.

GY offers 2 years unconditional warranty, so 'external factors' are still covered.

Recently, (four months and 3000kms ago) got 4 of these tyres for a 2011 City in 175/65/r15 for 4200 rupees a piece.

I wasn't looking for any extra-ordinary tyres, just something of decent quality and durability mainly, something which would last the next 5 years.

The other choices were Yoko Earth1 and Falken Sincera something at the same price. XM2 and Bridgestone were 1000rs more per more tyre.

At the price, they offer good value. A notch higher than similarly priced MRFs and Apollos. No comparison to cheaper JK, Ceat, etc.

Most people consider Earth1 to be a superior tyre, however I would say its in the same league. To be honest, Yoko is a popular brand name, associated with motorsports and would be nice brand name to own. It was priced at 4200 as well, but did not have any unconditional warranty.

I used to have Earth1s in my old car, I don't remember them being specially silent or grippy.

Assurance Triplemax isn't silent and soft like xm2s, but you get the unconditional warranty and greater durability for the next 50k kms atleast
