    Default I got my tyres changed for the corolla 2.0D 2001

    I got the Yokohama A539 185/65/R14/86H. I really like them, less noise and appreciable grip. Your opinions?

    Good choice! what you changed them from, how much did they cost?

    I got the same tyre but 195/65/14. Very nice tyre as far as road grip is concerned. However the only flaw is if u will hit ur car in a pot hole(pretty hard),u will see a bubble develop on the side wall of the tire.Apart that,i dont think it has any problem.

    I got them changed from Dunlop LM701 175/65. They were horrible with very bad grip. And is that bubble suppose to be a problem cause i saw it on 2 of my tyres(the old ones).

    It can be repaired and u can drive without fear(it wont burst). It cost me 400 rupees for the repair(one bubble).They repair it from the inside,not even visible,perfecto. price of tire when i purchased was 3500 each.

    Mine cost 3000rs. I had the choice of getting ES100 205/60/r14 but they were too wide and didnt look good on the car. The other option was A300 but they are for wet weather.

    The bubble can develop on any tyres if you do not care for them and abuse them. There is only one tyre that i know does not form bubbles when driven over pot holes, coz they just burst! General tyres, I have had very bad experiences with those tyres, I would say I was on driving on ice with those things, not that they were old or worn out. They were fairly new. Anyone else have any experiences with the Generals?

    general tyres have no road grip, this is the reason they last longer, my friend's cultus (in islamabad) did 80K on them and they are still like new ones. in fact they are sort of dry tyres, don't have ability to stick to the road. moreover, screetch sounds pathetic on them, a feeble voice.

    i used A539 for less then 2 yeras, drove 45000Kms
    I also had a bump on the side wall after 25000 Kms, after that i used a tube in that particular tyre.
    i was very happy with my purchase when i got rid of Brand new screechy Generals, but in the end i am not satidfied with these tyres. sidewalls are soft for our road conditions which give comfort but i had puctured sidewalls, a bubble, and dozen other punctures, because of extra softness of these tyres.

    do get them inflated between 30-32 pounds, then results will be better.

    I would recommend 36-40psi inflation on any car tyre gives better handling, cornering and better mileage.

    I used to keep mine nearer to 28 in my civic, and those A539's are real good, my father in law just got them on his corolla as well.

    Yokohama A539 are from Aspec series?
    Aspec series tyres from Yokohama are very very good and soft tyres.
