Tata Indica DLS - Stocks till 45K and then sold, seemed to be good for another 10-15K approx . Viva Accent CRDi- sold at 65K on stock tyres and could be used a bit more. The person who bought it is still using the same and has clocked 7K more and planning to change now. But one of my friends, changed tyres at 40K on Viva Crdi and upgraded tyres- Michelin- lasted for 25K and then changed again due to excessive wear and tear. after about 20K, sold the car.

So perhaps, stocks last longer than the replacement ones. Indica and Viva both had bridgestone as stocks. Current car Verna also has bridgestones and lets see how it performs.

I am using 185/60 Goodyear NCT5 for more than 74K in my Indica Turbo. I had to replace 3 tyres 1. with a bubble got replacement 2. got cut due to an accident & 3. got a side wall puncture. But with all this the tyres are quite OK. I think with proper allignment & balancing we can get better kms. Stock tyre was replaced with 185/60 on the same day by paying a diff of 2k.

The stock tyres which came with my santro xing xg 2003 have done 57000 km and are still going strong,probably they will last another 5000+ km. I think they are bridgestone protenza. I get them rotated at each service which is about 1.5 times after the recommended service interval.

I want to know what is the correct time to replace your set of tires. I have Indica Xeta GLG and has done 17K in 18 months. There has been couple of punctures so far.
Does it depend on the age / kms done? Obviously, it will depend on tyre wear as well. But, what is the typical kms (or no. of days/months/years) after which you *must* change the set of tires.

There is no hard & fast rule for that. Now, when I say this, it is assuming that he tyres are being put to use regularly and maintained for like, proper air pressure, rotation etc. On what kind of terrain it is being used also matters. If it is mostly city driving, then they would last long.

For a general reference you can safely assume 10K more than the kms the tyres are warrantied for when bought new.

Good Year GPS2 (If i remember the model correct), 7 years, on Esteem (OEM) - more than 46,000 km.

Pretty good tyres I'd say... hardly any punctures (mebbe 3-4) in the period of their use. Not used any other car tyres, so cant give a comparitive comment.

Bought my accent GLS in nov 2003. Have been running on the stock tyres. Have done 40K KMs till date. So far I have probably had close to 6 punctures (and one of them needed a tube change).
The tyres probably have about 5K KMs left in them but they are definitely past their best performance. There is a lot of road noise creeping into the passenger cabin and also I can feel the road a lot more (not a good thing in blr).

Pontenza's are costlier tyres and hence will not come stock. I think your Santro has S322 tyres of 155/70/13 profile.

Abhi

NOTE: sorry for the late reply. I didnt check the date.
