Btw, I would be getting my Swift Zxi soon. I have planned to upsize the tires. I would be going for 205/55/R15 after doing a lot of research here.

Still no website and no details on what sizes/models are available. Michelin and bridgestone both have updated websites. Is yoko sleeping.

They have a nice and elaborate printed catalogue available with the dealers. But agree their website isn't up yet.

A catalogue is definitely good, but for a quick reference of sizes available, etc a website is pretty handy. I dont know how many customers took Michelin for Yoko for want of quick info available in the website...

Which Yokohama tyre to go with for a Corolla?
Stock size - 195/60/15.
Tyre needed for comfort & ride, sporty & handling tyres avoided.

Thanks Akshay & Raghav, but S-Drive sounds like sports performance tyre!
Im looking in for a comfortable tyre with low noise & good ride.
Also, new Corolla Altis comes with 195/65/15, can I go with this size, as Corolla's ride quality is bad.

Thanks again Raghav, Im going to avoid Apollo, no particular reasons though, but yes I was also considering Michelin Energy MXV8.
Bridgestone Potenza G111 also come in 195/60/15 size, how are they?

Go for Michelin XM1+ for extremely low noise and a good ride and grip (both wet and dry). You can also go in for MXV8 also from Michellin.
