Default Tyres for Tavera

Folks,

I am planning on upgrading the tires for my Dad's Tavera SS. The vehicle is currently running on the stock Bridgestone which are tubed tyres.

The specs are 205/65 R15 99S. It comes with the stock alloy wheels. So, I am looking at a tubeless tires.

I am looking at the following options

1. Bridgestone ER60
2. Michelin XM1+

Is there are any other options available with the Yoko/Conti?

Yoko has the A drive, Continental has the CPC2.

You can also look at the Michelin Primacy LC. Lovely tyre.

If you ask me, I would say forget the XM1+s, ER60s, A drives. Finalise it on either the Conti or the Primacy LC. Since it's a private car, putting good tyres is worthwhile. My suggestion is the Primacy LC. Expensive but totallty worth it.

That was quick Nikhil... I am leaving now to the TyreStore!

Thanks a lot! It would be the Conti/Yoko for sure...

Get the Primacy LC! It's much better than anything among these!

Spoke to a dealer here, he is quoting 5350/- for the PrimaryLC, Wheel Balancing & Alignment extra!

He also told me that there are some issues with the Conti and suggested against it!

It was Mahendra Tyre Care, Besant Nagar, Chennai!

I will check on the issues that he quoted with Conti when I visit their shop in the afternoon!

Got the Yoko A-drives fitted on the Tavera at Tyrestore.

The CPC2 was unavailable and I dint like the MPLC pattern

And the tyre was immediately put to test in blinding rain. It coped up really well!

Thanks to all your support!
