Even my Santro has 165/65r13 Turanza ER60 tyres and the experience has been good so far.

On Sunday I have replaced all my tyres to Turanza Er60 165/65 R13. Done only 200kms from Mumbai to Pune. On express-way they felt very good. Earlier I was using Potenza G3 175/60 R13.

I have not yet checked my tyres yet aafter getting them fixed on my babe. .. I hav not driven much on it ... only 25kms so far. .feel was good but was for sure incomplete... i am waiting for a long drive to giv it real test. So far my tyres look clean without any small stones stuck on it,, [i guess]. i know thats really bad that i didnt check.

All the tyres in Turanza series dont perform the same. So how do we vote??
Well i am so sorry,,,
i never knew that there are many series in Turanza.

But now that i hav specified that "165/65/R13" so guess that got to be ER60.

And i wish if i can edit the poll. Which i tried doing.. but failed.

Even I have noticed less picking of junk by the tyres as mentioned by rks. Have done close to 4000 kms on them on all kinds of roads. They haven't let me down.
Enjoy the Turanzas!

Great
Thanks for the feedback my friend..

The ER-60's are primarily for smaller cars. They are not for cars like the lancer. The road noise is terribly high and grip levels are better compared to my older RE88's but nowehere close to michelin's or yokos.

The tyres seem to be heavy tyres and the steering has become heavier, mileage gone down.

Must say the ride quality is good and they can take lots of abuse with hardly any wear.

You should expect some drop in mileage when you go from old to new tyres. Further you have upsized to wider tyres, and the ER-60 tyres will grip more than the stock tyres.

What tyre pressures are you running? You should set them when tyres are cold. If you set them after car has run, you should increase the pressure by about 2 psi to compensate for heat build up. Low tyre pressures can contribute to some drop in mileage.
