Mine were MRF ZVTV. I am sure you will have no issues lasting 50k, beyond which you might also find them noisy.
Did you upgrade to 195/65 R15 by any chance from stock size? If yes, what is your observation with that size?

What was the brand of your updated tyre batch?

I went for 195/60 R15 (Yoko Earth1) GC has reduced a bit but I haven't had any scraping issues even with full load. Fuel efficiency etc is same. I think 195/65 is also a popular alternative(@Parag has this)
NOTE: I have run around 35K kms on these and the tread still looks great for another 20K kms at least.

Recent updates:
1. Tyres: Changed the stock MRF tyres at 67000 kms to Michelin XM2+ after reading reviews & suggestions from Maruti Ertiga : Tyre & wheel upgrade thread. Driven 350 kms till now and the new tyres are silent and comfortable. I went for the stock size 185/65/R15

2. Fog lamp: One fog lamp went kaput and when I checked with MASS in Chennai they quoted Rs.600 for the MGA fog lamp. I ordered Bosch fog lamp from Amazon for Rs.254. Replaced it by myself and the new fog lamp lights up well and it seems to be original Bosch product.

90k ownership review: My 2017 Ertiga Green(CNG+Petrol)

I had bought my ertiga in 2017 August i.e. exactly 3 years back. After a lot of arguments with my wife and parents, I settled on this vehicle. And proved myself to be a value-for-money person.

Performance: Absolutely no issues with engine performance and the car as a whole. Happy with my decision. I have a fair amount of complaint on the ride quality and the cabin noise though. Nevertheless, I've made peace with it and moved on with enjoying my vehicle.
I'm an avid driver and love long drives and exploring new places.

Tyres: My stock JY Tyres are still alright for another 5k and I was happily shocked to know this after looking at JK Tyre reviews. I've always maintained the recommended tyre pressure and I hope that might be one reason for it's life.

One thing which bothers me since recent times is the ratrling sound of the 2nd row seat. I'm yet to figure out a solution to it as ratrling sound is something I can't make peace with. Any suggestions on this are welcome.

Cheers!

Guys, I have been searching for this limited edition grille for my 1st gen Ertiga.

MASS had no clue and said its not possible for them. Boodmo also has no such item when I last checked.

Any clue from where I could possibly get hold of one ?

So I was provided wrong information earlier on the price as 6500. This one (Price) suddenly seems interesting now .
Also, boodmo has a listing too. So you may try your luck:
