Air loss isn't just the tyre's fault. In addition to the tyre, the condition, age and fitting of the rim and the valve (neck) are also important.

I have been using ZLX tyres for the past two years and have never faced the air loss issue.

If there is one issue that I would like to highlight, it is the treads picking up small pebbles. Other than that, it is a good choice.

I wouldn't call it as a problem of air loss as losing 1 psi per week is not bad. However, my previous set of tyres retained air pressure for longer periods (abnormally long).

The rims were in good condition even though the car had run 75k kms at time of installing the ZLX. Again I wouldn't suspect the rims or valves as the air pressure was always uniform across all four tyres when I checked every 3-4 weeks. The difference was 1 psi, if at all. I used the same fuel bunk and same air pressure pump.

Now im more confused. The ZLXs are 550 rupees cheaper than the Continental CC5s. I wanted something with a comfy ride (coming from XM2s) and the car is not driven much. I thought the ZLXs would be a good option since the running is low.

Since usage is on the lower side, I'll suggest MRF ZLX over the Continental.

My brother bought 4 ZLX tyres for his wife's Grand i10; 2 months ago. Previously it was running Earth1.

He only has negatives:
- Tyre noise
- Poor riding comfort
- Inconsistent braking performance
- Not VFM(it was only cheaper by Rs. 200 when compared to Earth1)
