    WagonR Lxi tyre change

    I have a Wagon R Lxi which has run approx 35000 kms and now i am having issues with 2 of my tyres. While one tyre has "taken air" and has inflated air-pockets in two places, the rubber threading of the other tyre has worn out and exposed the wires underneath. I donít speak cars and am a total novice in these issues, so please suggest appropriate tyres from a good brand which will last long.

    Try Michelin / Good Year tubeless tyres. Both are good. I myself am using Michelin XM1 + on my Santro & have covered almost 8 K on them and no issues so for. My brother is using Goodyear tubeless on his Alto for last 15 K with no problems reported till date. You can change the tyres & make sure you keep the tyre pressure as recommended and do a proper wheel alignment at regular intervals along with tyre rotation. Hope this helps.

    Thanks for the reply. Had forgotten to mention before that i have normal tube tyres and not tube-less tyres currently. And i donít intend to change all 4 tyres now. So is it advisable to have 2 tubeless and 2 tube tyres running simultaneously in the car?

    You can change only two tyres, but make sure they are on the front or the rear, without mixing them. Tyres wearing out at 35k are a surprise that took to the extent of showing up the metal tread is dangerous. Were you getting the wheels aligned regularly? I would recommend you to change four tyres (only if the rear set is also wearing out) and get a thorough wheel alignment/balancing done to make sure the tyres wonít wear out like this again.

    If your tyres are of same age, I would suggest to change all 4s and maybe get a discount. You have run dangerously all this time with such bald tyres. Also you can think of upsizing to a safe size, since 1 upsize costs almost the same.

    One of wheels alignment person told me, that Apollo Tyres are good as compare with Bridgestone and Goodyear. (He is selling these 2 brands). Even I don't found any error in my stock Apollo tyres during my present ownership of 17K KM. Better you upgrade the current tyres size, the same will gives you extra grip / confidence.

    Thanks a lot guys for all the valuable inputs. They indeed turned out to be helpful. Got 2 of my front tyres changed to Pirelli tubeless 155SR13 tyres. (They apparently are the best in the market, if the tyre dealer from whom i bought is to be believed). Yeah i agree i had been a bit irresponsible on the wheel alignment and balancing front, but will get it done regularly from now on. Any specific time intervals? And as of now, the rear two tyres look fine, so will change them shortly when they too kick the bucket like the front ones.
