    Default Best tyres for Chevrolet Joy

    Hi Guys,

    Please suggest me which are the best tyres (giving a firm road grip) for Chevrolet Joy. Also can anyone inform me how much the alloys cost for these tyres. I will appreciate your assistance.

    Aoa,

    From the topics discussed here and the info from various members.... I have reached to the conclusion that...

    Yokos ........... good but prone to sidewall punctures as experienced by many members
    Dunlops ........ mostly variants are smuggled and not recommended for our road conditions..... moreover they get real hard after 20K kilometers....... really a hit brand with taxi drivers
    Nexen......... some people recommend them highly and some are really against them........ not so sure about them though people that have them acutally installed speak good things about it.... the tyre shop owners are against them for some reason......
    Goodyear....... recommended by most people........haven't heard of any solid reason why they should be avoided....... the ones that say goodyear aren't good never come up with any convincing reason.........
    Michellin....... expensive but worth every penny
    Pirelli.......... nice overall........low tread life........
    General.......... well if you can't afford spending much then it's the last choice....... the foreign assembled are not bad by the way
    kumho / hankook........ not a bad deal

    The most important thing that should be kept in mind is the date of manufacture of the tire....... as mostly very old stocks are kept by the normal vendors......and the date of manufacture is written in the format:

    2607 ........ which means 26th week of year 2007........

    Disclaimer : These conslusions are based on the opinion of many people and no solid facts and figures so there is a very high probabiliy that many things might be wrong....... just the impression that I compiled after listening to many people..........

    And I am also looking for a tyre change in chevrolet exclusive........ the size I have in mind is 165/ 65/ R13 ........ although I have seen that even slightly wider front tyres tend to appear out of the body whereas the rear ones are too inside ........ maybe we should install wider ones at the back then front lol.......

    @ bilalahm!

    I must say a very good comparison between different brands.
    But one thing beyond my understanding (towards the end of your write-up), how many months are there in one year??? should that not be 'week' instead??

    bridgestone is a good tyre.

    It would be printed on the sidewall.......... look for the prominent 4 digit number............. that would be the date.............. there was a really good illustration chart given on some forum if you can dig it out........... would need to search a bit though...........

    165/65 R13 are most suitable tyres for chevy joy and Excl.
    yokos........ are excellent in terms of grip, stablity, braking and life.
    hankook........ comes second in this series.
    dunlop ..... they are worst mostly made in china.
    bridge stone ..... you wont find the one with such specs and secondly fresh product isnt available in the market. most of the lot is rejected from europe.
    nexen ..... is wet tyre, not meant for pakistani weather, moreover its international rating is not upto the mark. and those dealers who bought is trying to sell the tyres by what so ever means they have.
    Good year/ michellen/ Pirelle.... wont find one in such specs. i have seen pirelle with such specs but rejected it due to pattern and treads.
    alloy rims; i wont recommend you, but still people are facing problems in longer period of time. the averge set costs you around Rs.18000- 24000/= made in thailand mostly some are made in china. you may find the pakistani alloy rims in Rs.8000/=.

    mine are fitted with yokohama C.drive mgf date are 2007 and on wards. it cost me around 9700 only (made in phillipines)
