    I had these on my Santro for about an year and a half. Initially there were a couple of incidents of losing air - attributed to valves (I had them on steel rims). After that one puncture. All this in first 3-4 months - nothing after that.

    The XM1+ range has been discontinued. The XM2 is it's successor. Good tyre.

    XM2 is 4.2k per tyre. A little on the higher side IMO :/

    Since I am due for new Tyre for my swift, I have few questions to the experts.

    First is 185/65 R15 it good against OEM 165/80 R14?

    Tire Size Comparison
    Specification Sidewall Radius Diameter Circumference Revs/Mile Difference
    165/80-14 5.2in 12.2in 24.4in 76.6in 827 0.0%
    185/65-15 4.7in 12.2in 24.5in 76.9in 824 0.3%

    Which Tyre has toughest side wall?
    I had faced 3 punctures made by some moron using simple paper pin.

    The answer to last question may help many others

    I said that the tyre is good, I didn't mention it was cheap

    If somebody is going to puncture the sidewall purposely, no tyre sidewall is strong enough

    Factors to influence :
    Tyre noise should be minimum.
    Zero/ least speedo error.
    Great performance for wet&dry conditions.
    Least negative impact on comfort and Mileage.


    Thanks once again guys.

    Hi, If you are planning to go for 17" try out YOKOHAMA ADVAN SPORT which is available in size 17" and above .
