You sure you wanna ask this question ?

Here goes my list

1 - Bridgestone's Puny tyres for the Baleno used for about 6k kms. I threw them away.
2 - Apollo Acceleres used them for about 6k or a little more.
3 - Goodyear Eagle F1 GSD II used for about 8k.
4 - Yokohama S-drives currently running on my car.

This thread (Tyres & their Various Tread Patterns) might be of interest to you, if you are planning on picking up a new set of tyres.

Edit : Ishaan that's quite a bit of driving done ...

Nope, stock was 175/65 R14 S322. But you know none of my cars run on stock tyres. I replace them first thing out of the showroom.

Michelins are definately better than Hankook. Taxi is running smooth and silent after tyre change and also getting better average.

Man,

You guys sure make full use of the tread offered. I change the tyres of all my cars at a max of 25-30k kms or whenever they reach 70% of their life which is generally by then.
