The ride quality evidently improved since the change from stock Goodyears, a massive difference. It was also the most value for money tyre available though that wasn't what I was looking for but a happy coincidence.

In terms of plush ride and grip though, XM2 is the absolute tops - only that its sidewall isn't stiff enough, I pushed and tested the sidewall rigidity of XM2, Continental CC3 and Earth-1 and Earth-1 was the stiffest of all 3. This is because the E1 has a double-ply rubber construction compared to others and I wanted something like that as its more reinforced to handle the torturous Indian roads.

Need to buy a new set of tyres for Getz
175/70 R13

I previously had Bridgestone which lasted around 58K kms. I tyre kept as spare now
Next came Michelin XM1+ which lasted around 58K kms again but I had one tyre bursting on the expressway 2 days ago

Car is already 116000 kms driven and I dont know if Ill be keeping it for more than a year. So looking for not so premium tyres.

Went searching for Apollo, but didnt find a dealer. Mostly dealers kept Bridgestone (Rs. 4000), Yokohama (Rs. 3800)

Would Apollo Amazer or MRF be cheaper but still decent quality?

Please go ahead with Yokohama Earth 1. Good tires and cheaper than Michelin and Bridgestone.
Kindly do NOT compromise on safety. You still plan to drive around for a year.

Apollo Amazer or MRF ZVTS are the best possible for a Standby car. They are economical and lasts forever for your expected mileage. But Bells and whistles like less noise or superior grip etc. They will do what a tyre is expected to do.

Thanks guys. I settled with Apollo Amazer XL - 175/70 R13 (82 T)
In a few months it's going to be used as a backup car for intra-city commutes only, so I didn't see a point in buying the best rated tyres. Got them for Rs. 3500 a piece with fitting, wheel alignment and balancing all included. Also got a buyback of Rs. 100 per tyre for the outgoing Michelins
