Question ES100 on Elantra worn,now what?

The 205/60r15 yokohama ES-100 are almost worn,i am very happy with the performance of yokohamas .

Now, i want to change the tires,what are the good options i have?The braking and grip on elantra is already very good and with kind of roads we have in gurgaon i'd like to change to more comfortable tire of the same size as the ride is stiffer but with very flat ride.

I am thinking about Michelin XM1+ , Yoko C drive.I dont need very expensive tires.

Excellent tyres, covered 10k kms in my Fiesta so far. Ride comfort is very good.....as you know, my car travels over the same boulder tracks in Gurgaon as you do

Yesterday i was inspecting the tires on my car and i saw a huge swell on front right tire,thanks to gurgaon roads i crashed in a huge pothole last week and the result is a damaged tire.

I hav XM1's on my car and found the driving n ride comfort n control excellent. This is all the more noticable cos I dont hav a power assisted steering. The car was much easier to steer with XM1's than with other makes. Road noise also seems to be min on hi ways. In 175/70 13" size XM1 has a treadwear rating of 320. The new XM1+ has a treadwear rating of 400 hence is more expensive than XM1's. So should hopefully last more than XM1's. Since one of my front tires went bust I had to replace it with XM1+ while the other three are XM1's. Seems a good tyre overall.

Check out 205/60-15 Bridgestone Turanza ER60. Best for Gurgaon roads IMO.
