Did the same stock bridgestone on my accent lasted for 59K km. Proper balancing, alignment & rotation every 5k Km and air pressure everytime the fuel was filled up (once in 15 days or earlier)

Changed to hankook 205/ ??/ R 13 and they were still running and had done 50K Kms. they had a life of another 12-15K km left in till i sold the car.

IIRC, it should be the Bridgestone S322's since they're the only ones available in that size right now officially.

Bridgestone Turanza GR80 - about 6 months and 15,000 kms old, need to be replaced as the rear tyres are badly scarred, tyres have lost grip completely and I'm busy fishtailing all around Dubai.

30,000 km on my Indica 2000's 155/65/13s.

Totally undertyred for the weight of the car and simply could not cope with my Mumbai Pune blasts over the (then incomplete) Expressway!

Upgraded to 165/55s

Isn't 165/65 R13 standard on Indica (even pre Turbo Indicas)?

What tread pattern was there on the tyres at 95K ?

Uptill now i thought i would have the last laugh as my Santro Factory fitted tyres have lasted 49000 and still can go for another couple of thousand Kms but i intend to change it now for reliability and safety factor.

my stock tires on indica turbo dlx lasted for 40,000 km. the point worth mentioning is that in last 500 km , they went through a series of atleast 30-35 punctures.!!! they had become so papery thin, that hard braking would puncture them against gravel

This is normal.
90% of the punctures happen after 90% of the tire life.
