Had installed ZLO's in my linea TJET last year, had completed approx. 10000km, the grip level offered is good. However, not sure of the longevity had to replace a tire due to side wall puncture.

I am planning on changing tyres on my Rapid which is currently on apollo Alnac 175/70 r14 to MRF ZLO 185/70 r14.

Price quoted in Navi Mumbai is 3550 per tyre.

This is a old thread and not much activity, but would like some guidance if the tyres are good and if the upsize on rapid is recommended.

The correct upsize for 175/70 R14 is 185/65 R14.

They are very good tyres in terms of grip and silence. Longevity is decent, I changed mine after 40K kms. The number of punctures was not much, but the tyres had lost good amount of tread.

As for the rapid, a 10mm upsize will not affect mileage radically. Instead there will be benefits in terms of grip and handling.

PS: I have a 2008 Verna CRDI on which the stock size is 185/65 R14. I've been using 195/60R14 since the first tyre change.

Any more details?

I drove with them for almost 10k kms and loved it apart from the whoop-whoop noise at times. Was planning on going for them on my new car too after the originals wear out.

i was editing my post with details and it crossed 30 mins time limit and was lost. So writing again.

1. This tyre is 4 years old 2013. Almost coincided with ZLo launch.
2. Mileage of this tyre is 20K kms.
3. It is never underfilled. Because this tyre was on rear solid axle of an eeco/versa and factory recommended pressure is 65 psi for "load" or "when carrying 2 rear passengers".
4. It had a puncture a few months ago. And a few nails were retrieved from inside.
5. It was given a break for around 6 months in this 4 year life when it was just used as a stepney. And I used to clean tyre with soap and coat the tyre sidewall with sunflower oil once every 2 months. It was well preserved during those months was almost babied.

Today I hear a blast on rear axle and I thought some auto driver had banged against me. But no it was this tyre blowing out.

Every tyre has the max inflation pressure. This is usually mentioned on sidewall. I think 60PSI is way to high . Maybe that was the cause for blow out

manufacturer recommended

MRF claimed max tyre pressure is 120 psi as mentioned on the tyre sidewall .. so @ 65 I am within limit and apart from ride comfort going for a toss on empty load, there should be no other drawbacks.

hi friends,

I contacted my dealer with the above tyre and he had filed a claim on my behalf with MRF and I am pleased to note here that MRF has 'accepted' my claim for tyre damage for Rs. 2063 (gst included). Considering it is a 4.5 yr old tyre, I think it is considerate on their behalf.

HI Guys,

I have a 2013 Vento TDI and its time for my 3rd set of tyres ... first set was stock Apollo 185/60 R15, 2nd set was Hankook upgraded to 205/55 R15.

Was in love with the performance of the Hankook's superior grip and handling.

However this time i'm more inclined to a tyre with all round capabilities including a better ride quality.

Heard a lot about the ZLO's - and was happy with the reviews about the performance but a bit worried about the noise that's been reported between 40 and 50 kmph and the tyre blow out reported by Lurker.

Any additional feedback on the pros and cons will be really helpful.

Planning to get the tyres changed today ...

Thanks in advance.

The ZLOs were good while they lasted .

Used them on my Ertiga while it was with me . And eventually after 4 years of use , replaced the tyres with MRF Perfinza . The Perfinza is much much better , no humming noise and very comfy and grippy . If you have a choice go for the Perfinza .

Hi Gautam,

Thank you for your time and reply.

Did you notice any humming noise from the ZLO's when you had them ?

205/55 R15 is not available in Perfinza.

thanks in advance.

Yes there is humming noise at certain speeds. If I remember I used to hear it between 100-120 .

Hi Gautam,

thank you much for your replies.
Went ahead and picked up the Zlo's this evening. First impressions are very good ... need to check after a few more KMS on the odo. Cheers and tks.

On the recommendation of forum members, I bought 185/70/R14 ZLOs 6 years back. They have performed well with just 2 punctures. Now completed about 58k KMs, though thread left for another 2K. Seems tyre prices have gone south wards in the last few years as I bought it for ₹3.8K on 2013, but available for ₹3.75K per tyre now.
