My Cedia rides on 195/60R15 AVS dB, these are easily available in NCR.

However you can go for the new Michelin Primacy ST3, the company's advert in the September issue of Autocar specifically mentions this tire being available for Cedia. Apart from the above you can get Michelin LC, Yokohama C drive and Goodyear's Assurance in this size to name a few.

Out of the Turanza 60 and the RE88, the former is a better product however as someone posted earlier better products are now available.

Just read in the Fiat Linea review thread that you too have a Linea. My TJet+ rides on Turanza GR90 but in 16" dia. (205/55R16). These are fantastic tires which I find at par with the dB in terms of grip and a notch above in terms of road noise. I am not sure whether these are available in 15" but again they are excellent bits of rubber.



Yokohama A drives are good tires. If you read the reviews on Australian sites (driving conditions in the outback being comparable in terms of road surface as also the weather conditions) you will find that people have found these to be great. Some have reported slightly reduced grips in wet conditions but nothing much apart from that. In view of the shortish wet weather conditions here in the North I think these could be a good fit.

Get only ER60. Excellent tyres, low road noise, good grip. RE88 are very bad. Personal experience on Toyota corolla.
Regarding manufacturing date: you will find a four digit number on the tyre, the first two digits will be the week number and the last two will be the year...

Getting a New set tommorow
Have to choose between ER 60 and MY-02
AR 20 is not available.
Price difference is negligible.
Still confused.
ER 60 looks a size bigger when compared to My-02

Hi Akshay! Which tyre did you choose? Also kindly share the price details.

I'm looking for a Bridgestone Turanza ER60 195/60 - R14 for my Verna but I'm not able to find it anywhere. Have shortlisted AR-10 now and MY-01/02 also on my mind.

Thanks for all the reviews here. Shortlisted on Michelin or Bridgestone tyres for my 2009 Swift ldi, which was on original JK Tyres and already run 60K Kms . Sidewall is important for me, as sometimes make short trips into the fields where just mud roads exist, so Michelins were out.
Upgraded to Bridgestone AR20 185/70 R14 on the 21st of Dec2013 and am impressed. Low road noise, very good road grip (important for me as with the earlier tyres did not have much faith in braking) . Already did 1000+ kms and am happy with the upgrade, that has improved my car handling a lot.

I have completed 31.5K Kms on ER60 in 4 years. Tyre noise has gone up, thinking to replace them at 35K Kms.
ER60 have been good, but grip wasnt too great.

I am stuck between AR20/ER60/MY02

As you have already used ER60, please try MY02 this time.

With the time you have taken for making tyre purchase decision, tyre prices would happily change northwards.
