Spare on the Sports is 175, so it won't help. Welding another threaded piece of the same size should help.

Finally after lots of thinking got all 5 tyres changed for my ford Figo.
Got Pirelli 175/65 R 14 82T Cinturato P6.
Cost Rs 23000 including valves Wheel Alignment, Balancing and Nitrogen fillings.
Haven't driven much so did not find any difference except on speed brakers it was a bit smooth.

If you were on Michelin or Yokos before,I don't think you would find any major difference in comfort levels.

Hi all,

I have first gen Figo. I've replaced my car's tyres around 35k KM's with Yokohama Earth 1 185/65 R 14.

My odo is now 80k+ KM's. Need to change them. I've got a neighborhood Tyre ship which is offering Bridgestone, Falcon and Good year tyres for ₹4800, ₹4500, ₹4500 respectively. They're offering 2 years guarantee and 3 years warranty.

Which of these brands is preferred?

Please help.

Regards,
Sri Harsha

I would suggest the Goodyears as they have transparent & user friendly warranty address mechanism.

One of my tyres burst while driving (barely 2000 Kms into the replacement), they replaced it for free on basis of my explanations.

I believe you were quoted price for Triplemax Assurance tyres.

My new figo has run about 43000 kms on stock 175/65 R14 goodyear tyres. They have about 3mm tread left but two of the tyres developed sidewall punctures so I am thinking about changing all 5 tyres and upgrading to 185 65 R14. I am considering continental cc5, yoko earth 1 and michelin XM2's. Which tyre among these is preferable?
How much do the ford official alloy wheels cost in case I decide to change my stock rims to alloys?

Not much to differentiate between your choice of tyres. All are mileage oriented medium performance tyres. But XM2 may have an edge when it comes to being quieter than the others by a wee bit. OEM alloys are well priced at around 6500 per alloy. You can actually check out the 15" alloys of the new aspire. You can then fit 195/55-15 tyres. You have Conti MC5 and Michelin P4ST as well (not very sure). If sticking with the 14" alloy, then XM2 would be a good bet.

Changed tyres on my Figo last week. Was running the Continental CC5 185/65/R14 earlier which were due for replacement as I had used them for 55k kms plus with the monsoon fast approaching and a few highway trips planned. Opted for the Good Year Assurance TripleMax 2 (GY ATM2) in the same size from Lokmanya tyres Pune.

Initial impressions are really quite good! They are quieter and comfortable than the CC5's for sure. Grip is never an issue for me based on my driving style, but the tyre performs very well IMO. One thing I can say is that wheel lockups that i used to experience while sort of panic braking, with the original MRF ZVTV tyres which came with the car, are a thing of the past, the earlier Continental and now these Good Years both are miles ahead in that regard. They look nice on the figo too, although that's subjective. Didnt consider the Michelin XM2+ since I have experienced rubber chipping problems with XM1 and XM2 on my other cars. Was contemplating between the Earth1 and ATM2.

Finally settled for the ATM2 based on the following points.
  • GY claims shorter wet braking distances as compared to other competing brands, which I got to know from the dealer.
  • Hassle free GY pro-rata warranty upto 50% treadwear covered for 2 years, which is better than Yokohama warranty policy which is straight 50% reimbursement for the first year only.
  • Cheaper than Earth1
  • Lighter tyre than Earth1
  • Better looking tyre (subjective)
  • Availability of fresher set (all 4 tyres are stamped 1120 i.e. manufactured just before the lockdown)

Default Re: The official alloy wheel show-off thread. Lets see your rims!

Hi, looking for hub rings for my Figo. 73.1mm to 63.3mm (Figoís centre bore size). Please let me know where i can find the same. My Momo alloys came with these but ever since i shifted to HRS a year ago, Iíve never been able to get my car balanced and it always vibrates above 100kmph and its extremely frustrating.

With my Momo Wheels, it went up to the top speed without breaking a sweat and with utmost stability.

Please help me find these hub rings, itís been a year and itís just frustrating to live with this sort of vibration.

One thing still not sorted out is the under steering. I was hoping changing from stock which had become hard would alleviate this problem. Any one else facing this issue? Could this be a suspension issue?
Hi, I just stumbled upon your post. I am looking to change tyres on my 2017 Figo TDCi. If I am right your stock tyres were 175/65/R14. As per a certain upsize calculator available online, the tyre size that you have opted for creates a difference of +6.59% on the circumference, and generally it is not recommended to cross 2%. Do you face any handling issues with the new upsize.
Btw, I am looking to upsize to 195/55/R14, either Michellin or Yokohama or Continental.

Any more feedback on these tyres? I see them for about 3800 bucks a tyre which seem pretty decent value. How are they doing now? Are they noisy as evidenced in a few other posts in the forum?

Anyone here fit the Goodyear Eagle F1 GSD3? I see them retailing for 4k.

I have used the same tyre for my 2015 Aspire. These are pretty good in terms of braking & handling. The noise definitely has increased over time, but that's more of engine noise IMO, & I plan to get damp mats installed. Since you are getting these for 3.8K INR, guess these are bet bet I feel. I'm sure you will get latest tyres.

i no longer have the Figo with me, but AFAIK it did have a small difference in cornering. But not too obvious.
