Arrow Tyres for Honda CRV (2006)

Stock tyres are 215/65/16 (Bridgestone Dueller).

Need to replace only 2 tyres as they are almost bald, the other 2 have 50% life or more.

Dueller is either out of production or out of stock everywhere.

Other options (215/65/16) :

Yokohama Geolander AT
Michelin Latitude
Falken

The Yokohama seems best in terms of pricing and performance but im told there is an insane amount of road nice and it wont suit the CRV. Dont know if this is true or not... I do know that my S-Drives are noisy!

Other option I was suggested was the 235 profile Yoko A drive.

This means the new wider rubber(235) will have to sit at the back and the existing good tyres(215) will go upfront. Im not very sure of this arrangement.

Highway runs are done atleast once a month if not more. Car is often run on rural roads. This aint an off roader, we know that.

Tyre GooRoo's please do the needful.

Latitude's are excellent on-road tyres but are very expensive. Geolandars are a good compromise considering that the Dueler's you're running currently aren't the quitest tyres around anyway.

Hmmm ok, thanks ishan. Is there any on here running Geolanders?

If I go with the yoko's I will have to put of with road noise as well as the 5nak3 denigrating the tyres :-|

If noise is the prime most criteria for you in such a case Lattitue should be a better pick.
Geolandar H/T falls under highway terrain range where as Lattitude in hghway luxury range.
Geolandar H/T should be a better all rounder, Lattitude more silent and almost all on road usage.

hi people,
Our CRV (2007) is due for a tyre change, and we want to upgrade,
We were thinking about the Geolander A/T.
What do you guys say?
Our main use is 80% highway and 20% very bad/nonexistent road/ sand
Only concern is ride comfort

Thanks
Shiv

Help!!!!!!!! Especially Tyre Lord Ishaan.

Running 2 latitudes upfront, need to replace the rears now so I need 2 more.

No supply of Latitudes in Bangalore. Iv been waiting a while.

Other option is Continental and Im not even considering it.

3 year old Bridgestone stock lying at certain places which is a no go either.

Yokohama has been promising but nothing has been made available.

Why arent you considering Continental? It is not as good as the Latitudes, but not bad either.

Let's take it company by company to see what your options are:

1). Michelin - Best option but no stock anywhere.

2). Yokohama --- 2nd best option but no stock. Hopefully will come next month. That is what the company is saying.

3). Continental -- Not bad. Dont know why you are throwing this away.

4). Bridgestones - As you y ourself said, only old stock. Not worth risking oyur life.

5). MRf/JK/Apollo -- Nothing.

I havent missed out any company. Have I?

Oh wait, Falken might have the tyres. But I would rate this below Continental. I would much rather trust a Conti than a Falken. Especially, the tyre in this size. Otherwise Falken is pretty good.

Nik I meant to call you, I apologize.

Just want to see if the others can throw anything up. If not then Conti it is.

No problems re! Dont apologise. It also depends how long you can wait. If you dont mind waiting till Sept, then maybe the Yokos will be available.
