The roads inside Jalgaon, and the highways / state highways / national highways / Asian highways going out of Jalgaon - in every direction; are all opened up for various types of works ranging from installing pipelines to broadband cables and from widening of highways to laying of highways.

Considering the above, I got 4 pieces of one "Aeolus GreenAce AG01" tyres @ Re 2,900/- per piece. Will change them as soon as road infrastructure is reinstated.

In a dilemma right now choosing between the CC5 vs ER300 vs XM2 for my Toyota Liva. What do you suggest?

^^ Why don't you try MRF Perfinza on the Altis?

There have been some decent reviews on this tyre.

Hello all,
Have recently acquired a 2013 Toyota Corolla Altis VL-CVT, the previous owner had changed the tires last year but only 2. So now the car has 2 tires that are 2015 made and 2 manufactured in mid 2019. The tires are Bridgestone Turanza T001 in stock 195/65 R15 size.
I plan to change all 4 in the near future, preferably upsize them to 205/65 R15. I am veering towards Yokohama Earth 1 series as I have had a pleasant experience with them in my Punto.

Earth 1 will cost around 5.9K per tire, Any recommendations welcome.

I used Earth1 for 4 years on my Altis and last year upgraded to Michelin XM2 in the same 205/65-15.

IMO Earth1 is good but gets hard over 3 years and then is not comfortable.

The XM2 is far better in comparison and is the one I would pick.

Thanks for the heads-up Vid!! Per Toyota my tires still have ample life in them, so will use them for a few more months. Will get them upgrade just prior to monsoons.

Heavier steering is because of the increase in section width.
Ride should improve marginally with little compromise on handling (or sometimes nil) due to increase in side wall height.
Yeah, my bad. Only 6.5mm is below the axis of rotation, so net height would only be 6.5mm or lesser.

The ride is smoother and it's easier to handle larger bumps. I think the previous tire was well worn off, so the increase in height might be higher and that also helps. Tire noise sounds higher than before, albeit by only a little bit. Steering gives more feedback and feels more connected.
