I own a Scorpio Refresh 2011 model - VLX that is still running on stock Bridgestone tyres (16 inch). The beast has clocked 1,18,000 km in 5.5 years.
All the 5 tyres have more or less uniform wear. I get tyre rotation done every 5000 km and wheel alignment and balancing done every 20,000 km. Wheel alignment is also done whenever there is a puncture.
My usage is 90% highway and minimum speed I drive is 100 km/h. Of late, too many punctures on all the tyres
I need inputs from fellow TAI
gers on recommending the best tyres - Bridgestone / Yokohoma / Michelin / MRF / JK / Apollo etc
Considering the following parameters, which brand would you suggest ?
- Good road grip
- Precise stopping on braking
- Good suspension and less / no road noise
- Long life, durability
- Cost effective
My first preference would be Bridgestone as it has served me well. But I am open to consider other brands too.
