go for tubeless tyres dear.....if you sticking on to the same size Michelin's Pilot Primacy would give you a better performance but i'm not sure wether that pattern is currently available because the they have come out with a new energy tyre called Xm1.
but the better option is to upgrade to 205/60R15 size if you wanna maintain the same groun clearance or to 205/55R15 size if you would liek to go for a sporty drive.
in 205/60R15 go for Michelin Mxv8, Bridgestone G3 or Apollo Accelere if you are looking for a comfortable and durable tyre
in 205/55r15 go fo Dunlop SP9000, Yokohoma Avq Sport, Goodyear F1 or Hankook Ventus if you looking for a sporty drive and bettter handling
Choice is yours ...make it the best so that you can really enjoy the pleasure of driving

shld i stick to the bridgestones or is there something else i shld look for and wat r the aproxx prices??



Thanks
go in for a 195 60 R 15 Michelin Energy MXV8. It is one of the best tyres in its class, but your corolla would origianlly come with tube type tyres, go to a michelin dealer and get your rims inspected and if suggested by him fir these tyres tubeless for best results

Thumbs up tyres for corolla

keep yourself far away from Re88 as its the worst tyre that you can get for a beautiful car like corolla the best choice would be to go in for a michelin
you get two varities

looking for comfirt then go for mxv8 they cost about 4300 and its the most fuel efficient tyre available in the market

looking for performance and good tyre life go for pilot premacy the costing will allmost be the same but one of the best offers from michelin

Hi, I've to change the tyres of my recently purchased 2004 Corolla H2 (the current ones are with tubes) and I want the car to wear tubeless tyres. The discussion above has been tabulated and I request folks who have recently done this study or who deal with tyres to provide this info.

Hi Weejai, I think stock size is 195/60/15 so an upsize to 205/55/15 would be ideal.
I prefer Michelin Primacy LC or you could also check out Continental tyres.
