JK Vectra - The very abuse friendly tyres. Will not win fans in ride / grip / noise department on Team BHP but definitely not bad. They will take any abuse while providing decent ride / grip / noise for our sort of usage .
I am using JK tyres since last 08 years and have covered over 2.5 lakh kms. First used on my wagon r- tyres comfortably covered 75000 kms before I replaced. Now, using JK tyres on my ritz diesel- 61000 kms and all four tyres are in good shape. Got them cheked recently. I think another 20000 kms I will not have to change. Fortunately, 61000 kms without a puncture. Around 40 per cent driving on highways and hills of north india and remaining in Delhi and NCR. I think proper care and maintainence helps in getting best out of car including tyres.

Default Re: All rounder tires for Indian conditions

I enquired with quite a few dealers in Bangalore checking for Dueler's in either 205/60R15 or 205/65R15. None of them appear to stock them in those sizes. I'll probably go in for Turanza ER60.

Any suggestions for strong alloy wheels? Are the Ford OEM alloys tougher than non-OEM? I ask because I have had two of my non-OEM alloys bend and crack in less than 40,000 kms courtesy bad potholes.

Thank you all.

Have you checked the MRF ZLO range? They seem to be a good option for the Fusion. You might also want to check out the new 4G range from Apollo.

Hey guys,
A friend has a 5 year old ford fusion and he is going for a tyre change.
Budget is not a constraint. He wants to go for stock size of 195/60 R15.
Although he is very happy with Goodyear assurance on his other car, he wants to try something different this time. Probably a silicone compound tyre.
What do you guys suggest?
1. Michelin
2. Continental
3. Yokohama

The drive would be mostly on good delhi-ncr roads
The car is parked in the bright sun for at least 6 hrs a day.
What he wants is really good grip and low noise.

PS - posting it here as the figo is the closest car to the fusion
