The Honda Brio was a car with trendy design which was easy to drive through the city traffic and good for occasional long trips. The car attracted youngsters and was a delight to drive thanks to its 1.2 litre petrol engine mated to manual transmission. The stock tyres of the Honda Brio had supreme resistance to aquaplaning and provided good amount of traction. We believe that the tyres played an important role in providing precise steering output.
We thought of helping Honda Brio Owners to choose a tyre set that is suitable for them depending on their taste and what they are looking for, hence we have made a detailed description of the tyres below.
The Honda Brio comes in 2 tyre sizes ranging from 14 inches to 15 inches. In terms of choices, there are 15 tyre makers like LINGLONG, MRF and CEAT that offers tyre options for the Brio in India. Prices for Honda Brio tyres start at Rs. 3,550 and popular tyre models that fit are AMAZER 4G LIFE, B290 and ZLX.

Apollo AMAZER 4G LIFE:
The Apollo Amazer 4G life is well known for its High durability, Improved life, improved braking and enhanced resistance toward punctures. The tyre is constructed with ultra-high wear resistant compound which gives longer life.
The Apollo Amazer 4G life has a Robust cavity design which results in the ability to resist impacts and has structural durability on bad roads. The tyre has been designed with Micro puncture technology which gives superior resistance to nail Penetration so the chances that the tyre getting a puncture is low. The manufacturer claims that the ultra-high wear resistant tread compound provides 100000+ kms of tyre life which is what makes this tyre special. The durability and efficiency that the tyre provides is top notch.
Some of the benefits of this tyre include consistent performance at all speeds, wide grooves for outstanding grip in wet conditions, enhanced endurance and safe braking capabilities and optimum performance throughout the year.
The Bridgestone B290 is made for performance. It performs well in wet and dry conditions and the tread patter allows one to brake even in wet conditions. To reduce the noise created while driving, Bridgestone has carved five different tread blocks on the tyre.
The channel created on the surface of the tyre ensures resistance to aquaplaning which means that the water which comes in contact with tyre patch is channeled through the grooves to exit from the surface so that the tyre can get more traction in wet conditions. The braking capacity increases and a shorter braking distance can be expected from the Bridgestone B290 series.
The superior quality rubber used in manufacturing the tyres provides ample amount of comfort and smoothness to the rider. The capability of resisting hydroplaning allows the rider to drive with confidence. The tyre tread and the groove channelling ensures a smooth ride and the stability that the rider requires to deal with the corners.
Michelin Energy XM2:
Michelin's latest generation of tyres are made to deliver the best performance on Indian roads, offering a perfect match of safety, longevity and fuel efficiency. The tyres helps in braking and stops up to 1.7 meters shorter based on external tests done by Shanghai Motor Vehicles Centre on MICHELIN Energy XM2, measuring dry road braking distance from 100 to 0 km/h.
The tread compound is more flexible. It better adapts itself to the irregularities of the road surface (Micro-Adaptive Compound). Then, the wider grooves on the tread evacuate a greater volume of water, reducing risk of aquaplaning (Wide Tread Grooves).
MICHELIN Energy XM2 is known for being environmentally friendly reducing tyre particles that cause tyre pollution. The tyres are known to increase the fuel economy thanks to its compounds and elements used while constructing the tyre. It is also suitable to be driven with since it ensures maximum smoothness and comfort even on bad section of roads that are found in the Indian terrains.
Goodyear Assurance TripleMax:
The Goodyear Assurance triplemax is well known for providing maximum braking ability. The tyre is an original equipment which provides maximum stability. It comes as a tubeless tyre that has been designed to present excellent braking ability & improve the fuel efficiency.
The tyre has large block elements which provides increased contact area for extra security while trying to slow down the vehicle. The tyre has an Innovative polymer tread compound with improved molecular bonding which brings grip or improved traction to a whole new level. Such a practical tyre for uncertain Indian driving conditions can make a difference to you and your loved ones.
The tyres provide excellent traction thanks to the elements used in this compound such as the silica tread compound. The wider grooves seen on the tyres are designed for better water evacuation and for resistance from aquaplaning.
The MRF ZLX tyre provides ample amount of grip or traction on dry conditions. The tread pattern is designed to provide better handling and precise steering output which gives the driver the confidence to easily maneuver the vehicle while cornering.
The MRF ZLX is constructed with attractive bow- shaped sidewall design which enhances the cornering capabilities. The tyres are designed with unique lateral grooves which provide traction and improved ride comfort. It also has wide primary grooves for water-channeling that is resistance to aquaplaning.
The tyre provides excellent comfort on highways and provides decent fuel economy figures. The tread pattern of the tyre along with larger outer shoulder assists the driver by providing precise steering control during lane change maneuvers. The stiffer rib at the centre and specially optimised contact patch provides stability as well as precise steering output.
