Thanks buddy. How has your experience been with the Bridgestones with regards to road noise and braking etc? They seem expensive but if good I will get them.

Btw, your thread on the Creta is a treasure chest of information. Thank you for sharing.

No complaints so far. Grip - no issues be it dry out wet. , Road noise was decent and low till about day 60,000 kms, post that it increased.

Overall the tyre is good, no complaints about what it offers but yes the price is on the higher side which I frankly didn't expect.

I'll be changing the tyres soon and have two options in my mind as they are priced similar - Yokohama BlueEarth AE50 or Michelin Primacy 4ST. Have to decide which one to get.

Hello all, the gist of this post is, the Michelins R16 are every bit worth the penny. Let me go ahead and give you the entire context, my stock good year tires on Creta 2016 model had run 50k and had lost everything from traction to cushioning and the had become noisy. Before lockdown I had decided on selling this car as tire change, clutch, suspension, AC would need atleast Rs 80 K in near future. This decision was scrapped after having read an excellent thread here, which clearly brought out the economic disadvantage of selling my car at 50k on the odo. Then came the crucial decision, the humble good year for 5500, Yokohama for 6500, Bridgestone for 6700 and Michelin for 7000. Some how I felt that since I am not giving myself a new car, might as well splurge on tires. Hence the decision was more emotional than rational.

Now onto the main story. That my vehicle suspension is already old, I was not sure what difference could new tires make. But I can tell you the ride quality and handling has improved by miles. And yes if you can spend a few extra bucks, the noise reduction in noticeable. The vehicle is leaning a bit on corners as it used to do when it was new. Remember Creta is one of the worst handlers out there. If a tire can help the cause, I believe they are worth it.

My 2015 Creta VTVT is nearing it's 5 years now and was thinking of giving it a slight makeover & this thread https://www.team-bhp.com/forum/india...ot-money.html\ further inspired me for the same. To begin with I am looking to upsize my stock 205/65/16 wheels to possibly a 225/55/17's. I have a few questions in this regards, and it would be great is you guys can help me answer them. Please note that this is the first time ever that any of our cars that we owned will be getting a wheel upsize. We generally used to stick to the OEM recommended ones only.

1. Will the upsize hamper my existing ride quality as there will be a decrease in the sidewall thickness?
2. What will the impact on my resale, say in another 3-4 years down the line; since generally buyers have apprehensions about aftermarket fitments (especially upsized wheels)
3. Since mine is a Petrol model and the current average I am drawing in mixed driving conditions is around 12-13 KMPL; will there be any significant drop in mileage?
4. Is the upsize good enough, since I am going for a +1 rim size which anyways is available in the SX(O) spec. The only concern here is the section width increase from 205 to 225.

It would really benefit me if you guys can throw some light on this and also provide some info on the tires to go for and the alloys alike.

Thanks!

Read this article. It explains plus sizes wheels and tires.

I might be looking at a tyre change after the bad experience (Review: Goodyear Assurance Triplemax Tyres) I had with the OEM GY Assurance Triplemax tyres that came with the car. I want to keep the original size of 205/65R16.

I travel less and my requirement will be tyre life, decent comfort and sufficient wet grip. What are my options?

Look at Yokohama Earth-1. Should serve you well for long time. Being a Made for India tyre, should handle all the bad roads thrown at it without any issue.

Stay away from Goodyear and JK Tyre though.

Folks my 2019 Creta 1.6 VTVT has 205/65 R16 alloys and Goodyear Assurance Triple Max tires currently. The car was just 4500 on odo when one of the tire had a tire bulge issue and was replaced.
After that I have driven around 3k and no issues so far but somehow I am not comfortable driving a set of tires which gave away in less than 5k.I have trust issues.
I have inquired about Conti UC6 and MC5 both are available at 6k/tire.
Michelin I have heard are good but due to some export restrictions sourcing them could be a challenge.
I can still source them but am worried that if there is any issue then getting them replaced might take a lot of time.

Below are my requirements:-
-Same profile 205/65 R16
-Running is mostly in city and occasional highway trips.
-Need something which is a fit it and forget it types along with a silent ride.

Suggestions welcomed.

My Creta has done approx 40k kms on the stock GY Assurance and has served me well so far. Planning to change to a new set of tyres soon, my shortlisted options are:

- Conti MC5
- Michelin P4ST
- Yoko Bluearth

I guess Blue Earth series is being discontinued. I read it on the Yokohama thread on the forum which leaves us only with Conto MC5,P4ST,Earth 1.
I came to know from dealer that UC6 and MC5 are both same but UC6 will last more.Strangely no one on the forum is using UC6.
