Hi all, I am posting this after checking in other forums, if this this topic is already been discussed. Couldn’t find any so far.

If you note 185/60 R15 are not available in India from major tire manufacturers like Michelin,Yokohama & Bridgestone.So far I was able to find only Pirelli P1 available in 185/60 R15, but those tires with soft side walls doesn't look suitable for Indian roads and will wear out quickly.One of the dealer with whom I checked even said it may wear out by 30k, which doesn't sound good.
like to run their cars
There are quite a lot out there who would like to change the stock tires to better brands without upsizing. As upsizing or getting new alloys will surely void warranty applicable for any new car. For example a Polo 1.6 & Fabia 1.6 comes with 15 inch alloy wheels & Apollo tyres.

Apollo's are good tires, but anyone would on a Michelin comfort oriented tires.Any thoughts on this [:)]

Re: 185/60 r15

195/60/r15 (or 195/65/r15) sizes are available with Michelin Energy XM and Yoko A drive. Good upgrade without the cons of lesser mileage etc.

Take your pick..both are very similar in performance and longevity.

Apollo Acceleres are good tyres given their cost.

Thanks. Yes Chayan. Correct up sizes for 185/60 R15 are 195/60 R15 & 205/55 R15 per my understanding. Actually I would love to upsize to 195/60 R15 Michelin Primacy LC, but that would easily void warranty of a new vehicle. For example Skoda provides warranty for 4 years under Skoda shield, but warranty will not be covered if any OE change within the first 4 years is done. Not sure If I can ask dealer to provide an NOC for upsize of tires. Thats why I was wondering why Michelin doesn't have tires for stock sizes which is 185/60 R15 here in this discussion.
