Default Re: BluEarth AE-50 tyres listed on Yokohama's website

After upgrading my Seltos with RV02s, which I appreciate every single time I drive the car, I just replaced my Creta's Accelera's to Yoko BluEarth GT Ae51's.

The Accelera's fared much better than expected but these Yokos are in a different league. Super silent, very low resistance and grips good in wet and dry. Solid 8 of 10. Highly recommended.

Both are upsized to 235/55/R17s.

I am a bit surprised about the ride quality which didn’t quite improve post the change. The MRF ZVTV’s are usually hard compound tires which evenly get really hard with the usage. On the other hand, the Blue Earth’s are soft compound, so I was expecting that the ride quality should improve by a good margin.
Did you upsize the tires by any chance, which lead to the reduction in the sidewall?

I am just confused between the Blue Earth AE-51 & the Continental UC6. The UC6’s have got some seriously good reviews on the other thread. However, they are approx. 400 INR pricier than the Yoko’s.

AE-51: 5100-5200/-
UC6: 5500-5600/-
Hi Ashvek,

I'm in exactly the same situation as you. Have waited for ages for the Michelin Primacy 4ST to become available again and have finally accepted that it's not going to happen. So now my next two choices are the UC6 and the Blue Earth GT. My first priority is a soft comfortable silent ride.
Have you already replaced your tyres ? If so which ones did you go for and what's your feedback ? Will appreciate your experience / opinion on this matter. Other members also please feel free to weigh in with your comments / advice.
Thanks

Hi Revvhead, I got the Conti UC6 tyres for my Swift. I have driven approx 2500 kms since the swap and so far the impressions are great!

Coming from the poor MRF’s, these UC6’s are a huge step up in terms of everything! The steering feel is good, grip levels are fantastic too both in dry as well as wet. The noise levels are phenomenal, absolutely zero road noise from these. The difference after the change was stark!

Ofcourse, all these comparisons of mine are with the earlier MRF’s.

I would definitely reccommend these for any hatch or a SC SUV.

Maybe you can also check how they compare with the new BluEarth AE-51 & take the final call. From what I heard, the UC6 are silent compared to the AE-51 & cheaper too.

Sir, How are your tyres holding up? From what I understood, 195/65 was not recommended by multiple members since it went beyond the 2% limit.

I am looking to change my tyres too and was reading through the thread to understand how these Yokos are doing in Indian conditions and you seem to be the only one who has selected this profile with your stock alloys.

Sir, tyres are fine as of now but due to less driving can't comment much on it.

Earlier I had Michelin 195/60 Primacy 3st R15, it was good apart from outer edge cracks with age.

Regarding the profile 65, I went against common recommendations as I wanted higher ground clearance and a comfort ride. No issues with fitting on the 5.5J OEM Alloys.

Here is the comparison between OEM 175/65 R15 and 195/65 R15.

My friend also had similar requirements from his City and upgraded to 195/65 R15 Michelin Primacy 4.

https://www.team-bhp.com/forum/tyre-...ml#post4911270 (Honda City : Tyre & wheel upgrade thread)

His feedback is great on for the 65 profile tyres, as there is no underbody scrapping plus higher comfort and Michelins are more silent.


Some side profile pics of my City with Yokohoma 195/65 R15.

Can the BluEarth GT be used for Creta? The website mentions its only for sedans.

It lists BluEarth RV-02 for CUVs but thats not be found anywhere.

Wouldnt recommend it since the 205/65R16 BE GT is rated 95H and I think the Creta comes with 205/65R16 95V rated tyres. 95V tyres have slightly stiffer sidewalls vs the 95H and are rated for higher speed. Would suggest you look at Conti MaxContact as they are good tyres with tread patterns that work for both roads and no-road conditions.

Thanks for pointing out the speed rating.

I read in the Continental Tyres thread that the MaxContact 5 series is now replaced with UltraContact 6. The Conti website again mentions both these are for sedans.

I am wondering if they will hold up the larger weight of the Creta or cause sidewall bulges.

Not sure about MaxContact being phased out, you might want to talk to a few dealers and check if they have stock. My friend has been running MaxContact on his Creta and its doing a really good job, both on road as well broken tarmac, mud trail and no-road situations. UC6 is definitely positioned as sticky sedan tyres but there are a few folks (example (Tallboy welcomes longer companion | Maruti Ertiga VDi | The 215,000 km update)) who have been using them on their MUVs as well. Best would be to get feedback from BHPians or Creta owners who are using the UC6 before purchasing them. What other options are you considering?

I was looking at the options in Yoko and Conti.
Eliminated Yoko Earth1 since the reviews termed it noisy. Yoko BluEarth RV02 doesnt have much reviews.

Conti UC6 and Yoko AE51 are mentioned as car tyres. So was not sure if it can be used for a Creta.

The other option is Conti CrossContact LX2.

.
Even I am looking the RV02 or AE51 for my Creta. Which do you think is better in terms of less noise and comfort? I am more leaning towards the RV02 since they are marketed as typres for CSUVs/MPVs.

Well i'am getting these tyres installed today in my Creta and i think this information is a bit incorrect, when i read this i was sort of getting nightmares since last night as i had finalised this tyre from a friend of mine's shop.

The 95H rating of these tyres is first of all same as the Kumho tyres that came with my car, this rating is also same in all the 3 available options from Yokohama and most other manufacturers and the only difference between 95H vs 95V rating hypothetically is the speed rating, 95 is the load rating which is same in these tyres whereas H is rated for 210 Km/h whereas 240Km/h.

Touchwood i hope there should be no issues because of this.

You are correct, H is rated for 130mph/210kmph and V is rated for 150mph/240kmph. Based on the above, you should have no problems with the 205/65R16 BE GT rated at 95H.
