Which model MRF are on the Aspire? ZV2K is it?

Good that the company has responded but I have a few questions:

1. At what speed are you noticing this humming noise?

2. Which model is it in the Swift VDi? I meant which Ceat is this? I presume it is 165 section R14 ones. Right?

3. Did you try changing the tyres with another brand keeping tyre spec same?

4. Source of humming noise? Is it from front or rear or both?

Reason I am asking this is: I have faced this issue too in my car.

Link to the issue from my ownership thread:

MRF ZLO - Humming noise issue

Here's the summary:

Car: Swift
Variant: ZDi
OE tyre: MRF ZVTV 185/65 R15.

At 54K I decide to change tyres and upgrade so took the courage and went against the tide. Got myself MRF Z.L.O in 195/60 R15. I hear humming noise at 40-50 kmph within a short while of usage. I raise a red flag but no response. Posted on FB and then things started moving ahead. The representative came did multiple TD's but washed his hands off saying tyres are good, wheel bearing are worn out etc etc but no tyre warranty.

I get a thought what if I swap tyres and see. I did it and bingo. No humming at all.

Came back to MRF and told them the same. Which is when sense dawned into their heads. They agreed to give me stock ZVTV (185/65 R15) free of cost. Fit them on the car, drove straight to the tyre dealer and bought 4 Michelin XM2 (195/60 R15).

No humming noise whatsoever. It's been almost 61K on XM2 and no issues. Current odometer reading is 1,22,337 kms.

Sorry for the long post. But I suggest you to get a better brand tyres and see if humming solves or no.

Yes, the OEM tyres on the Aspire are MRF ZV2K. Even after 50k kms, the tyres still have a life of 20-25k kms. But w.r.t. tyre noise it's just horrible.

Will definitely run away from these tyres at the time of replacement.
