XM1 or bridgestone for ford ikon
I have Mrf ZVTS as stock tyres on my ikon and have done 27000 km in 21 months. I have original alloy of ford 13" and my tyre size is 175/70/13. I am planning to change them. Can you advise whether to go for michelin XM1 or any of the bridge stones. One reason for not putting MRF is that they have a very poor network in mumbai and to put a new tube in my car it took me two days to find one from an authorised dealer of MRF. I also travel to pune once every month. Kindly advise. Thanks.

I too had the same size 175/70 R13 on my OHC. Switched to XM1's 185/70 R13 tubeless. Have driven for 8000 kms since. Absolutely love the new rubber. No noise, much better grip and very comfortable.
Go for it without a doubt.
