Default Bridgestone

Good year tyres 205/65/15 on the V model Innova came for 60000Kms (they still can do another 5000 kms and with tubes probably 10000kms more). I just needed a change and opted for Bridgestone 225/60/15. The tyres are great and the cornering is excellent. I Vote for them and the price was good at 6500RS with wheel balancing and wheel alignment. It was a bargain at nandi toyota bangalore. Michilin is costly and there is no difference between Michilin and Bridgestone except Michilin cost a 1000RS more.

I'm the most experienced rider on Innova. 60000Kms in 2 Years.

Not to sound harsh but 60K kms in 2years is nothing to boast about in a Innova.

I think all he meant to say was that he was amongst one of the most experienced ones.

well if you read my review or see my garage youll see that ive got 225/60 r15 c-drives. very good tyres. great ride decent grip. i was gonna get mxv8s but then they were not worth the high price. 7500 a tyre. opted to yokos that were cheaper.

Congrats mansing about choosing good tyres also congrats on travelling 60,000km in 2 years. Thats lot of travel. Innova is best vehicle to cruise around.

Also its good that you changed your tyres. Tyres last around 40,000km even in any best maintained Innova, beyond its too risky to run that beast on bald tyres Good that you changed your tyres.

Thanks Akshay about suggesting Yoko C drive, I will recommand that to my friends next time if someone ask for comfy VFM tyres.

Ravi.

C drives from Yoko compliment Innova pretty good, the vehicle character transforms radically, way less noise, way better handling, grip and ride, its single most best addition to your vehicle.

I went to one dealer here who has both brands with him, he was claiming that C drive is more noisy then MXV8. As per him MXV8 is much much better then C drive. Is that So Team ?

that may be though i dont think there will be much difference. also the pattern of c-drive looks much better (yeah, yeah i know im justifying my purchase). theres also nearly a 2k difference between them.

Michellin is costly but I can see its worth for that premium we pay

I do understand premium we pay is bit more but thats how it is in the world. Best prodcuts attracts bit extra premium but make sure choice you are making is worth for your requirement.

Innova is meant for family ride where comfort is important than racing. MXV8 is mainly comfort tyre. Any 225 make tyre gives better braking ability for Innova.

I have found in front yoko, Michellin Indian manufactured tyres like goodyear, apollo, JK etc.. look crappy with respect to braking/handling/noise/comfort.

So decide between Michellin/yoko/Bridgestone turanza ER60.

Regards,

Ravi.

ravi actually the michelins used to be much cheaper. its just that a couple of months ago the prices went up. initially i had got a quote of 6200 for mxv8s. when i was upgrading i was shocked to hear its 7500. i quickly changed to yokos and saved some money. i doubt the michelins would be so much better as to justify 2k more per tyre.
