I recently punctured 2 of my tires side walls and rendered them useless. The tyres are 195/65 Turanza T 001 and have done approx. 23k km. My dilemma is should I go in for the same tyres I.e. Turanza T001 or change to Earth 1. I would like to replace both of the tires at least.

Stay with Turanza if you are happy with its performance, or else change. It doesn't make any difference. But make sure you put them on one side, either front or back. One set in front and one in back.

Got my Corolla new shoes for all wheels
Michelin PS3 with stock profile 195-65-15. Earlier were Turanza. PS3 feels better in terms of grip and ride has become more silent. I'm lovin' it

Confused with which tyre to be changed for my 7 year old Corolla Altis. Spare tyre is brand new, luckily no punctures yet. Car has done 38k. Tyre Size 195/65/15

Question : Should I change all 4 or change only 3 and use the spare tyre. Current set is BS Turanza ER300, happy with these. Any better suggestions, looking for comfort and low noise. Not planning to upsize, mostly city driving of less than 20kms daily.

Tyres in mind - Price in Pune

1. BS Turanza ER300 - 5800
2. Yokohama Earth 1 - Not checked
3. Conti MC5 - 5400
4. Goodyear Assurance Triplemax - 5200

Saw adv in today's TOI newspaper for Firestone FR500, how about these ?

Would not suggest you to use the spare tyre which is 7 years old. But if your usage is only city then it may not matter. If you are retaining the spare tyre then go with the same matching tyres, and you are already happy with them.

7 year old tires would have become hard, so I won't suggest you using that. Keep it as spare only.

I replaced my stock tires of Corolla 1.5 yr back and have done 22k, I can vouch for these tires. They are good to for another 15k kms.

But if I have to change the tires today, I will definitely go for MC5, as I have heard quite a lot of good reviews and ride quality is supposed to be very good.

Which tyre, how about the riding comfort and dry/wet braking performance ?

Thanks a lot for MC5 suggestion
Hope the prices I have mentioned are reasonable for this tyre.

Oh sorry, missed to mention the tires. I am on Earth 1s now. They are most VFM tires in their prices and I have been told my many people that MC5s are much better in all aspects. I had paid 4.5k per tyre of Earth 1, 1.5 years back, so 5400 for MC5 seems OK.

3 months back I replaced 4 tyres and choose Michelin Primacy 3ST. These are super silent and have good grip over dry/wet surface. Was running on Turanza earlier but P3ST are better than those.
