Well, the Bridgestone S322s on my Ikon 1.6 were with me for 22,000km before I upgraded to Yokohama s-drives (fatter rubber, new 15" rims), and the MRF ZV2K tyres were with me for 50Km on my new Swift diesel before they were upgraded to Yokohama A-drives (again... fatter rubber, new 15" rims).

I have to say... the S322s on the Ikon weren't bad. The wear on them when I upgraded was minimal, and in two and half years and 22,000 kms, not a single puncture or any other tyre issue.

Man... the fact that you've done 210,000 km on an 800 completely overshadows everything about the tyres!!!
Just curious... how many clutch plates have you gone though??

Currently on Appollo, done about 40,000, may last for 10,000 more.

Done 23500 on the OE Pirellis. Look good for another 10,000 at least.

Default Alto

Done 85000 KM on Alto stock tyres -Bridgestone. Then changed to JK tyre for another 10K before selling the car.

Now got Spark with stock tubeless Apollo tyres.

Btw. Is there any marking on tyre that indicates whether is tubed or tubeless?

Wow...! 85k on a single set of tyre. How long did you use it (I mean time frame) ? and more importantly how did you use it.
Give some pointers please.
Usual tyre change cycle for me is 30-35k.

Yes in most tyres it will be marked if the trye is "tube type" or tubeless.
I don't know if there are any special markings.
Normally (in the one's I've seen) its written in plain english.
"tube type" or "tubeless"

A quick way to find out is to look at the valve thingy that we use to fill air.
It looks a bit different in a tubeless.

It happened too to my brother in law’s Swift VDi. He changed his tyres for 23k.At that time what we thought is the problem with Alloys. After all postmortem we found that the problem with tyre size for that Alloy

My Michelin tubeless lasted for 34000kms in Indica.

I didnt realize the symptoms when it got punctured and drove it for about 15kms on the rims ;-) that was the reason ,other wise it would have run another 7K-15K kms.

Goodyear GPS2 on the Getz were replaced at 45000 kms, they still had some 2-3k km worth of tread.
Michelin XM1 on the Baleno have been running for 13000 km.
Am I wrong in feeling Michelin does not last long, as experienced by most members?

My Bridgestone S322's lasted for 35K KM. They were good enough to do another 2k atleast but somehow felt they had lost the grip especially on wet roads. Seeing the rains which were not stopping here in Bangalore, decided and shod new Yoko A-Drives.

I am running on the same set of Bridgestone tyres and currently at 32k kms and their still seems to be enough treads to last easily another 10-15k. But, being an impatient soul, i intend to change them much earlier for Yoko's.

How are the A-Drives?

I agree with you, but in my case, the Corsa 1.6 is a very heavy car. Plus I do a lot of long drives so i decided better safe then sorry.

The A-drives are a dream. Good grip, amazing ride comfort and good braking also. I would anyday suggest them to you for your CRDI.

Replaced stock tyres on my zen (Goodyear) that lasted for 51000 kms. I changed them at Nikhilb2008's shop. I changed to Michelin XM1+. All Michelins are tubeless.
