Top 5 Brands of Tires
Here I have tried to give you a snapshot of the major car tire models from major car tyre manufacturers across the globe. The model range I am giving starts from the top model from top and goes to the basic. Speed rating has also been mentioned for a standard size of 205/55/R15
There are various models in this series depending on their application.
S Drive V (240)
A Drive H (210)
Michelin Pilot Sport Cup Y (300) and Pilot Sport 2/3
Though these models mentioned above are not available in 15 inch and 205 size, so we have taken the most basic width and shortest size for reference.
Pilot Preceda 2 V (240)
Pilot Primacy LC V (240)
XM1 / XM1+ H (210)
Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric Y (300)
Again, this tyre mentioned above does not come in 15 inch so we have taken the base model
Eagle F1 GSD3 V (240)
Excellence V (240)
Assurance H (210)
Bridgestone Adrenaline Potenza re001 W (270)
Again this tire mentioned above does not come in 15 inch so we will taken the base models Potenza RE 050 V (240) and Potenza G-III H (210)
Apollo Aspire W (270) but not available in 15 inches again so we will take Accelere Sportz V (240) and Accelere H (210)
So above are top 5 brands of tires and the major manufacturers available in India but speed ratings given are for 205/55/R15 only and may increase or decrease depending on width and rim size and also speed rating is a symbol of speed handling ability of a tire and it does not represent the quality and performance of a tire.
Like an Apollo Accelere with H speed rating cannot match the grip and braking performance of a Yokohama A drive with H rating in your car.
