    Apollo should be good enough. Apollo Alnac 4G is good comfort tires. Accelere is for more harder compound.
    Else, decide on the price with the tyre dealer and buy Michelin/CPC2.

    Apollo's are a bit on the noisier side, but are more harder. If you are going to crunch some serious miles in the first year of ownership, retain the Apollo. Once 30K are crossed on the odo, think about alternatives based on your experience with the Apollo. I thought Fiat cars still come with Apollo Acceleres and not Alnac, can some one confirm this?

    Tough to say: tyre choice is a rather subjective matter. BUT: the Apollo-s are fine imo, if they are like the goodyear nct-s my new Linea has, and are way better in their noise characteristics than the goodyear gt3-s the older Linea came with in 2009 when my dad bought his.

    Keep active here on TFi, from time to time. Post updates on your purchase and ownership experiences in hyderabad, will ya?

    cheers

    I have second set of Acelere's in my car which has now run 35k Kms and it is still silent (linealover who is using C Drive always say that my car is more silent :)). It is only a perception that they are noisier. Oh yes, the first set of Acelere's which came with the car was little more noisier than my second set. Apollo may have improved. Not sure. But, Acelere is not noisier at all.

    I do agree that they arent noisier but on tar roads whereas on concrete roads they do sound noisier. This is from my experience in my usual daily office route where there is a section of tarred road and rest are concrete. I can distinctly hear the sudden decrease in the noise levels when going on the freshly laid tarred section. I may be wrong.
