Default Re: Tyre change in Aveo

Time for me too to change my stock Aveo Goodyear 185/60 R14 tyres.

I did 33k KM on the stock tyres and both the front tyres outer buttons have worn out completely. So not planning to go ahead with Goodyear.

Am open to suggestions from anyone who switched tyres recently and have any opinions ?

In 185/60-14, the current options are XM1+(mostly out of stock), XM2, A drives, Aceleres and Potenza GIII.

I would suggest you go for the A drives or Aceleres. However, if you want to try something new, try the XM2. It's a new tyre but I think it should be good.

After about 38K km(last year April), i have replaced stock Bridgestones Turanza ER300 185x60R14 with Bridgestones Turanza ER60 195x60R14. Some thread was left in the old tyre. From my experience I am very happy with Bridgestones Turanza. Initially i haven't planned for any up-size but I could not source the 185/60/R14, some shortage was there at that time.

Look at mjothi's thread here, he has changed at 43k recently, with the Yokohoma A-Drive.

I have shifted from the crappy Goodyears to Yokohama C drive 185/60-14" and they have been performing very well indeed. Road noise is lesser, grip is much better and overall more comfortable than the stock tyres. Would recommend them anyday over the stock Goodyears.

I recently got the A-drive (195) and i feel that its a good alternative.

Had an excellent road grip, but if you are looking for reduced road noise, then it may not be ok. Ofcourse, its better than the stock tyre, but not eliminate much noise.

I got it for 19.5K with bill, fitment, balancing and alignment all done at GT-Tuners, Peenya.
