Question Which is the best among these?

Hi friends,
I am thinking of upsizing the tyres for the Palio 1.3 and the stock is 165/80 R13. So after going through the forums here and asking others have settled for the size of 185/65 R14 as it is the closest to the stock size with upsize. Having checked with various tyre manufacturers the availble options for me in this section are -
1. Appolo Accellere (not sport)
2. Energy xm1+
3. Yoko C drive
How do these fare vis-a-vis handling and comfort? I have come across many posts for xm1's but not for the other two.
Also what is the expected exchange price for stock tubeless tyres?

Hi,

heres my 2 cents:
Unless you are changing your rim, stick to 13 inchers..you could try 185/70 R13..
The Apollo Accellere is an OK tyre compared to the other two.

Personally have used Michelin XM1 Energy and the ride has been great..even better than the Yokohamas I currently use..

I'd go for Michelin If i were you.

Zaks

We would have answered all your queries in the Palio wheel thread itself. No need of creating a new thread.

All the tyres u have mentioned are comfort based with adequate handling.
Yoko C drives is not available officially with B&W at the moment.

Both Aceleres and XM1 are good tyres. Aceleres would be the cheaper of the two..
