Been researching for a while on what tyres to go for once the OEM tyres go bald. Had a couple of punctures consecutively that made me get new tyres without any further delay. Options that I had in stock tyre size as per "TyreMarket.com" were as follows:
  1. Bridgestone Dueler HP Sport
  2. Michelin Primacy 4ST
  3. Goodyear Assurance Triplemax
  4. Continental ContiCrossContact LX2
  5. Yokohama BluEarth AE-50
  6. Yokohama BluEarth RV-02
  7. Yokohama Earth-1
  8. Apollo Apterra HP

Out of these had shortlisted the P4ST, BluEarth AE-50 and BluEarth RV-02 but the availability was low and Michelin's price per tyre was ranging between ₹10,890 - ₹11,700. Honestly, didn't find it worthy enough to plonk so much money into the tyres hence removed the Michelin's from the list. I was left with BluEarth AE-50 and RV-02, both of these tyres were hardly available throughout Hyderabad and coming to think of it, I didn't want to be stuck with a set of tyres that are hardly available and God forbid I need a premature replacement, then it'll be difficult to source them hence had to remove the two BluEarth options from the list. Was left with Continental and Goodyear tyres - decided to give both tyres a pass since Continentals were too soft with lesser life whereas Goodyear tyres had a lot of complaints (read tyre bulging).

Last option as per the tyre dealer was Yokohama Earth-1. Started enquiring the prices all around Hyderabad's popular tyre dealers for the Earth-1 and the quotes ranged from ₹8,100 to ₹9,900

Picked the cheapest of the lot after confirming whoever had the latest manufactured tyres, went and got them installed within 30 minutes.

Price paid: ₹8,100 x 4 = ₹32,400
Dealer Name: Prakash Tyres, Tilak Road.
MFD: 4620 (46th week of 2020) i.e. 2nd week of November

The chosen one - Yokohama Earth-1

4 pieces kept in their storeroom (was the last set available)

It's been ~200 kms so far and loving the ride so far. Too new to comment anything hence shall post a mini-review once I clock around 5,000 kms on them.

Hi Anurag,

I have recently got my creta serviced from HASS. I had bought Castrol Magnatec SUV 5W40 oil from Amazon and told them to use that. The service advisor said that they will do that but the engine oil they use will be billed, otherwise, there is going to be a warranty issue. So I went ahead with that and told them to put the oil into the empty container. I don't know the grade but the bill says NPNENGOILD. I have a Hyundai i10 2009 petrol kappa. Just want to know can I use the same engine oil in i10.

Since you have a diesel Creta, what they must have billed will be the Servo 15W40 diesel engine oil. Must be 5.3L in quantity and ~₹250 per litre as per the bill, right?

Not sure if Grand i10 uses the same grade since it is petrol.

Hi Anurag, I only started using synthetic oil (5w40) from the 50k service and I didn't opt for engine flush; since I'm nearing the 60k mark. I used the Mobil Delvac 1, I want to use a different one this time What are you thoughts on shell helix ultra 5w40?.I wanted to know if I should get the engine flush done ? And if it's safe to switch from one oil manufacturer to another ? I was quite apprehensive about getting it done the last time around.

Going through your thread, you had used multiple engine oils, which one did you like the most out of all the different ones that you used?
Did you notice any considerable reduction is engine noise?

I was using 5W40 after I got the remap done whereas I am running the stock map now and have been using 5W30 from the past 20,000 kms. My plan is to stick to 5W30 grade hereon.

In terms of which oil is the best, I have no answer since the 1.6L CRDi is so refined enough that one can't find much difference between brands. I am currently using Shell Helix HX8 5W30. Shall be buying the same oil since the MOBIS where I visit for all service-related parts, stocks this oil so I buy everything under one roof. 90,000 kms service shall be done this weekend.

Since I do the services myself, I do it every 10,000 kms by procuring all parts myself following the maintenance schedule as per the owner's manual.
Hi Anurag, brilliant thread! Lot of insights for people like me. I have 2017 Tucson and with the deteriorating quality of service at Hyundai ASC, want to do normal/ regular maintenance at a reputed FNG. Wanted to understand how and from where do you source OEM/ MOBIS branded parts?

Also, you had shared name for a store which helped you with the Brembo brakes. Do you have a contact number which you can DM or should I go via the Google/ FB route only?

I get all Hyundai OEM parts etc from MOBIS distributor from my city. Regular spares they have it in stock but if it is a not-so-fast moving item, they'll need 1 week to source it.

Check the MOBIS website for the list of stores that deal in Hyundai OEM parts specific to your city.

Hello friends

I have a question to all creta owners about the driving position. The problem is i am not able to find a good driving position(a sweet spot). I am always fiddling with height adjuster, steering height adjuster or with leg room. The driver seat has automatic adjustment. After every drive or after few minutes either my shoulders start to hurt or legs feel uncomfortable. Am i doing something wrong ?

I have creta sxo 2018 diesel variant. I have driven it around 12k kms only. I have other car which is a duster 2013 model, i have not found such problem with it. This is the reason why i drive duster more even though the creta is very smooth.
Kindly give some valuable inputs.

I am 5ft 10 inch slim built.

Can you check the following thread. It may be of help to you.

I have no issues with the seating or position except for the lack of lumbar support which can't be addressed without fiddling with the seats.

Hi sir, you could try Mobil Delvac1 5W40 for the 1.6CRDI. Iíve been using it for the past 2.5L kms on my Verna.

I have tried that oil during the 40,000 kms service.

Currently using Shell Helix HX8 (5W30) and shall be sticking to that oil henceforth.

Congrats for completing 1L Kms on the odo, Anurag Bhai!

And, you have maintained your Creta like a brand new as if it has come from the showroom!

I hope you will be completing 2L Kms on the odo with your Creta!

And, recently, one of my friends, who has Jan 2017 Creta Diesel AT in same colour as yours, has also run nearly 1L Kms and still looks good as new despite the car's age is more than 4 years old and they own a Seltos Diesel AT as well!
