    Default Tyres for Liana Lxi (ABS)

    AOA

    Need advice on what tyres should I use in Liana Lxi with 14" Alloys, as the previous ones dunlop sport 185/65 r14, need replacement and i am thinking of changing the make this time.
    My priority is grip as the car porch is inclined with marble tiles and with the current tyres it usually fail to get in the porch whereas my khyber with nexen does it without any problem.
    The tyres should be silent, tough and should ensure good cornering and braking.

    Please recommend tyres according to above requirements with Brand, size and model .


    Thank you

    Sir

    Dunlop SP Sports 200 are entry level tires, nothing special.

    I am sorry I saw this too late. You already have a set of tires.

    My problem would have been that I do not know the local conditions, so my recommendations would not have helped as good as the local experts who already posted.

    Generally though, all that makes your car work is four little patches of rubber contacting the road. Handling, brakes, acceleration, turns, rain, slippery conditions, you name it.

    Getting the best tires one can get is probably a better "performance modification" than all the spoilers and sound systems and cold air intakes in the world in my opinion.

    Are these your selection? They seem a perfectly fine choice for a Liana under typical driving conditions in Pakistan I would think.

    No Problem for the delayed reply. Appreciate the info and yes this is exactly the one. Its nice to know that you have endorsed the selection (though it was'nt mine).

    Can you please explain the advantages of tyres with rotation (the arrow showing the direction of rotation on the tyre)

    The tread design does not appear to be directional. Is there an arrow indicating which way the tire should rotate?

    Can you please post a picture of that section of the sidewall so that I can understand your question better.

    Sir, I am not talking about Sp Sport 200. I was asking a general question about rotational tyres and what are there advantages (if any) over others.

    I am interested in getting nexen N2000 for my Suzuki Khyber G-10 with R13 wheels.

    Had good reviews from a friend who is using them in his cultus. what do you think? (Picture attached)
    regards.

    Rotational tyres are usualy noisy tyres, but they give very good braking.

    Yokohama no doubt amazing tyres but they are too soft and wear out very quickly and not recomended for rough roads.

    I am using LM 703 they are performing well.
    Speed costs money, how fast can you afford to go.

    Oh okay now I understand.

    Directional tires offer better wet perfromance since they are a little better at extracting water at high due to their tread design, and this factor is more important for wide to very wide tires. This reduces the chances of hydroplaning.

    The problem is that they cannot be rotated from side to side unless they are completely dismounted and remounted and rebalanced. This means that their tread can wear unevenly and becomes noisy (sometimes quite loudly) as the tires age.

    For the type of driving and vehicles in Pakistan, I would suggest staying away from directional tires, but that is only my opinion. Some people like them for cosmetic reasons and I respect that too.
