Default Re: Tubeless tyre for Santro

I recently bought 2003 Santro XP. It had run for 9 years and 33K+ Kms on stock Bridgestone! Great!

So I decided to retain Bridgestone and fellow BHPian and auto guru Raghav (who runs Ingnite the garage) suggested the same.

I went in for sportz tyres - Bridgestone Turanza ER-60 155/70 R13 stock size, tubeless on stock rims. Alignment and balancing done at Ramesh Cars, Velachery. 4 tyres and alignment and balancing cost me 15K @ 3750.

It is running great (almost floating) and I was told it has the positive of ruggedness as well as soomthness as it's a sportz tyre.

The price comparison for 155/70 R13 at Chennai:

Bridgestone - normal tubeless - 3500
Bridgestone - normal with tube - 3500
Yokohoma - normal tubeless - 3650
Continental - normal tubeless - 3700
MRF - ZVTS - normal with tube - 2900
Ceat - 3000
Goodyear - Tubeless - 3100 to 3500 3 models
Appollo - 3200
JK I hear is about 2700

I hope I have made the right choice - guilt of spending 15K coming out!

I had been running Bridgestone Turanza's (Stock size, tubeless) for almost five years with no issues on the stock steel rims. Just had to get them straightened to undo the normal damage after three years. I sold the car earlier this month.

I do not understand why you are asking for opinions after making the purchase. Anyway the tyre change was required since the car is 9 years old although done only 33K.

As far as I know the ER-60 is damn silent and comfortable with good road grip. You have also mentioned that the tyres are running great (almost floating). If your car is performing great, you should not mind the cost or should I say the extra cost because the diffrence between normal Bridgestone and the Turanza are not much.

Be rest assured that you have one of the best tyres for your car and enjoy the drive.

I am also looking for changing my Santro tyres - Stock Bridgestone. Still going strong at 10 years, 64,000 km, with zero punctures. Can easily last another 5K km, but for safety reasons, will change it soon. Was a highway car till about 1.5 years ago. Not much running now.

I have no doubts, will go with Bridgestone.
