    Hi ,

    My TJet plus came with Goodyear NCT 5 as OEM . I have noticed the road noise to be on the higher side - hence considering replacing the tyres. Does anybody have any idea how the road noise of the Apollo Acceleres compares to the Goodyear's ?

    Thanks :)

    hi

    Goodyear NCT5 is a good tyre..if u feel the noise is more then go for the upgrade or else u can use the same.. i would suggest to go for Yokohama in case ur going for the upgrade..

    I have used both NCT5 & Accelere's & both are both good tyres, but tyre noise is same in both the cases. Incase you need to reduce tyre noise then it has to be yokos' or michelin's.

    Thanks ! Reviews of the C drives seem to be generally positive - with a a few people mentioning the soft sidewalls..

    The tyre shop is quoting 8150 per tyre and buyback of 4500 for the 500 km run goodyears.

    If the price is fair..ill probably get them this weekend

    Sorry to burst everyone's bubble here.. But havent C drives become very old now?
    I mean the DOT might say its a new tyre but the tyre/rubber technology on it ,isnt that quite old?

    8150 is for 205/55/16 - the OEM size in the TJet plus

    If you're okay with the steering getting a bit lighter you would be fine with C-Drives. If you care more about handling, steering feedback continue using the GY's. If you've some more moolah plonk it on the Michelin PLC's - they are all rounders and keep you happy in all fronts.

    Since Ive been driving a honda with its EPS over the past year , a slightly lighter steering in the TJet would be quite alright :). Is there any particular area where the C Drives do not score ? Michelin's might be a little out of budget .
