    yeh, those stock GT3 tyres are pretty good while grip on the road is concerned.its kinda hard rubber so their are very less chances of wear tear in normal daily driving conditions.Even i did 120 kmph. on it & it feels pretty stable! the only drawback is they are noisy if you roll down windows on CC road. Even on tight corners at high speed, :up it gives vary good grip though we think that car will start sliding!! :drinks :up

    Yes Tron, I agree with you. I had used Goodyear for my UNO. Excellent Ride & outstanding stability is there.

    But some members are arising question of Noise. When I was using UNO,I didn't pay attention to tyre noise.

    But those were not GT3. So Iam little bit confused. Are they noisy on regular tar Road ?

    doesn't hard rubber mean less grip?
  7. Indeed, - harder rubber means lesser grip than those with softer rubbers.

    In my experience, except for the noise part, I found the GT3-s quite good in terms of grip in all round conditions. I had done 170 kmph in dry conditions and 160 kmph in POURING conditions and still I felt nothing unusual or worry-some at all- touch wood..!! It felt as stable and comfortable (of course it is in a Punto, that apart) ::T

    frnds,

    i am just back from a gruelling 1400km of rajasthan. in four days. (23-26.01). The grip provided by GT3 is excellant and despite the MDRs and Village road that I had to travel in Central and Western Rajasthan, no flats. Roads were ranging from absolute dream (Mega highway) to nightmares (MDRs and village roads. So you can well imagine the gruel, tyre underwent through. Except the noise, I love these tyres. Pls remember the tyres are already 35000km old.
