Go for tubeless if you can afford it. I own a Corolla and find the stock 195/60 R15 tubeless great. As for changing specs of tyres, why foul with something that works. I heard from somewhere that Bridgestone Potensas (the ones fitted for my 2007 model and I do not know if they are the same as yours) are best for Corolla. Of course, others may have different experiences.

To me Potenza RE88 are horrible tyres even worse than MRF ZVTS...
It has come as an OE fittment for Accent in the past n now Corolla..Too many issues..

I would suggest u GIIIs if u are performance oriented...
If u need comfort go for Michelin Energy XM1 or Yokohama C drive

I guess Michelin XM1 should be agreat choice,great on comfort/service life and decently priced.I you're on a budget,the yokohama's would give you all the features of the XM1's at a lower price. Anyone have info on Pirellis ??
