CEAT Milaze X3 Car Tyre Review

The mass segment passenger car tyre arena in India is filled up to the brim with tyre brands that boast high tyre and tread life. However, in reality, there is a handful of them who live up to this expectation or ‘hype’. Even if some tyres actually last long, the grip and comfort factor (after a while) goes for a toss, leading to grave safety concerns. 

Out of the many tyre brands striving to get the high tyre-life equation right, CEAT has been constantly focussing on achieving the desired all-embracing trio of ‘grip-comfort-life’ with its ‘Milaze’ range. The durable tyre series has been around for quite some time in the market and with its latest offering, ‘Milaze X3,’ the Milaze family sees an encouraging extension.

CEAT asserts that unless the tyre has completed 1 lakh kilometres, due to its intact grip and stability, the customer won’t feel the need to replace them. The Milaze X3 tyre receives new generation tread compound and optimised shoulder depth for a superior all-weather application.

Tyre Compound

A tyre that is claimed to achieve the 1 lakh kilometres milestone is ought to possess something special with respect to the compound. The unique compound technology uses hardwearing rubber developed to provide maximum resistance to wear over its rival in the tyre market. To make the compound last long, there is more rubber along the centre line of the tyre. And due to excess rubber content and materials at the tread, it takes a long period of time to deteriorate. 

The modern wear resistance compound, together with better load distribution, guarantees uniform wear to all four tyres preventing misalignment of the wheels. The use of dual compound at tread minimizes tread wear, whilst distinctive tread pattern assures confident wet and dry grip.

Construction Type

The CEAT Milaze X3 is endowed with solid radial construction and features tubeless layout for better puncture resistance throughout life. Its higher groove depth ensures enhanced tread life, while the higher rubber gauge plays an important role in providing extra resistance to external damage and roadside injuries. 

The innovative tread pattern with symmetric tread design is formulated to provide optimised contact patch on the surface, which ensures less wear, leading to higher tyre life. Its rigid shoulder blocks provide improved handling and better cornering abilities. The robust carcass structure of CEAT Milaze X3 ensures the least piercing of sharp objects to the strong sidewalls resulting in a hassle-free way forward. 

CEAT Milaze X3 Tyre Performance

With several high-end technologies going into the making of compound and construction, the CEAT Milaze X3 checks most of the right boxes in the performance section. The tyre with symmetric tread design in conjunction with dual-compound offers better stopping distance during emergency braking compared to its predecessor and competitors in this category, making it a safe tyre. 

The cornering traction is commendable under speedy situations even on curvy roads credits special dual-compound construction. As Milaze X3 is not intended towards high-speed straight drive performances, the tyre delivers exceptional feat on the endurance front and assures cushioned ride quality to the occupants, thanks to the optimised tread pattern and sidewall construction. 

Apart from comfort, durability and dry grip element, a pleasant surprise comes in the form of road noise, which is impressively low, something that’s unheard of in the ‘longevity’ segment. The all-weather CEAT tyre also offers decent wet grip under watery situations with enhanced dispersal of water through its deep grooves, preventing the chances of hydroplaning.
