    Default Suggestions for Corolla 2010 Tyres replacement

    Hi,

    The OEM tyres of new Corolla is General Euro Star - 195/65R15. As a replacement of these, which shall be opted (provided no rim enhancement).

    - Yokohama C-drive
    - Dunlop SP Sports 9000
    - Dunlop LM702

    Preference is to have 205/65/R15 (and non-directional due to its easy of swapping in the long run).

    Most of the stock in market is of mid-2009.

    Thanks.

    Although, I've seen a lot of positive ratings for the Yokohama C drive tyres both online and in the local market but, 'am little concerned on these factors, before I put them to drive:

    - How is the overall wear millage of Yoko C drives on regular drives ?

    - Will it majorly affect the millage by putting 205/65R15 then 195/65 ?

    AND

    - Is it really worth replacing the OEM tyres ?


    Thanks.

    c drives are gud tires. if u want comfort then go for yokohama aspec A300. they are soft. dunlop lemans 702 are gud too i have them on my civic but they won't suit corollas.

    SP Sport 9000 is way better than C drive and dont even compare LM702 with either C drive or Sp Sport 9000. Its an insult.

    Aoa,

    I bought Gli on Feb 15, after driving it for 100 kms I decided for tyre change.

    The 2 I short listed were Dunlop sp300 & Yokohama db. However when I asked the dealers to suggest the softest tyre each one recommended ;
    Michelin / Federal.

    I opted for Federal, why.... Thread 1 polyester + 1 steel & wall 1 polyster.

    Believe me its the softest & most silent ride I ever had.

    Thanks all. I got Yokohama C drive - 205/65/R15 as a replacement of OEM General EuroStar tyres. Driven so far 200KMs on it and enjoying the steering response and most importantly instant braking.

    Yokohamas rock! I had A300s in my car and they gripped like anything on dry and wet roads. Good choice! Where safety is concerned please don't be worried about fuel mileage.

    Indeed there are many brands. I had a preference of non-directional tyres over directional, as I earlier mentioned at the start of this thread.

    Would appreciate your input @ this thread too....
