Thanks

I too was concerned with tyre noise and was stuck between AE-51 and UC6. Dealer had both but suggested AE-51 since he noticed UC6 tyre noise increased sooner with age around 10k km. Went with AE-51.

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

Hello All.
I am confused between the Yokohama Bluearth GT and the Bridgestone Turanza ER60 for my Honda City 2011 i-vtec.

The tyre size I am going for is 195/60/R15.
Ride comfort is the priority.

Thanks.

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

During the recent amazon sale, i placed an order for Yoko Bluearth AE50 175/60 R15 tyres for my Nissan Micra. Later, i saw that the tyres sent were Yoko Bluearth FE AE30 in the same size. They were made in India and also, manufactured between 28-31 week of 2022. How different are these from the AE 50's? I tried looking up online, but only saw that these are priced higher than AE50's on an online tyre website and a specification review on yoko eu website. Nothing on their Indian website.

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

Hi All,

Purchased a new set of tyres for my 2018 Baleno Delta CVT. Odo: 27,300
Tyres were making screeching noices when turning and even gentle braking. Also since the 5 year mark had crossed.

Went for BluEarth GT AE51 based on the discussions on this forum. Straight away I could feel the difference from ZVTV - Road noise has drastically reduced. Will update on the performance once I take a long highway run.

Thanks to the discussion on this forum which helped in arriving at decision for BluEarth.

Costed me 5700 each in Pune Nagar Road (Yash Tyres)
Already got an sms from Yokohama India Online warranty system with Warranty Registration number.

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

Did a 400 Kms approx trip to Shirdi and back to Pune today.

The BluEarth GT AE51 performed brilliantly. The braking has definately improved. I could feel that I had more control of the car. I was driving atleast 10Kmph faster on the same routes when compared to earlier.

Very happy with this purchase.

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

Changed my Creta tyres to Blue Earth GT AE51 yesterday (all 4). I had a choice of Earth-1 or Blue Earth, and with the minor price difference, I chose to go with Blue Earth. Total damage for all 4 tyres, alignment, balancing and 4 valve stems came to 43,400. I had checked the prices online already, and found this to be a reasonable price - all inclusive.

The OEM Bridgestones had run approximately 45,000 kms and still had some tread left. However with over 5 years of use, the rubber compound had turned harder which I could definitely feel while driving.

After the change, I can feel an immediate difference in the tyre noise, road grip, as well as comfort levels. Mileage has gone up by a small margin in a day of driving. However will need to monitor over a slightly longer term to be absolutely sure.

I was also pleasantly surprised to see an unconditional 2 year warranty, and a total of 5 years warranty for the tyres. Yoko is betting big on its product quality and the unconditional warranty speaks volumes of their confidence.

If there's anyone in and around OMR - Chennai, please feel free to DM me and I can guide you to the shop I went to.

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

Hi all,

I am getting a new Renault Triber soon and wanted to change the Ceat/MRF tyres to BluEarth51 in same size 185/65R15. Tire Shop next door recommended UC6 or Earth1 as he said there have been lot of complaints recently reported on BluEarth related to sidewall bursts. I dont know whether he was trying to sell Continental or whether his statements were true, as I have not heard any sidewall issues in Blu Earth in the limited research I have done.

Has anyone else heard the same or experienced this? Thanks.

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

I see a lot of folks talking about immediate change in tyre noise and braking feedback with AE51. I have the same on my XL6 and I felt the same, after one and half year of highway usage I can safely assume that my tyres at least now after 25000 km have gotten noisy and hard and having frequent punctures as well.

Would love to hear otherwise.

15 years back had gotten Hankooks for my M800 and they lasted for over 45000kms, the tread wore off but the compound still remained soft. Haven't come across a single tyre with the same level of compound.

Yes RV02's. Driven over 20k on these and they still run like a dream. Still highly recommended!

In full agreement with your point sir. RV02's run for 17k on XUV700. Highly recommended from my end as well. Comfort, silence and amazing stability while braking.

Yours were one of the positive review that helped me make by decision on RV02's before i was member here. Please accept my delayed (belayed - piratey version) thank you.

21k on my AE51s in almost 2years and 85% of the odo has been on highways. Tyres are still soft, noise hasn't increased much and haven't had any puncture issues. Do you park your car in the sun? Mine is covered parking at home and work, maybe parking in the sun could result in faster hardening of tyres. Also driving a lot on concrete roads could be another reason IMO.
