    Ramesh - Now who will test the ZLO - Awaiting you to come back!

    It's the same experience for me as well with C Drives, I think they require some run-in before even performing fully. After clocking close to 3K on the Yoko C-Drives the Steering feel is amazing and has indeed got the heaviness I like and the comfort is even amazing - better than the PLC's on my Punto. My only worry for them is that they are wee bit softer than PLC's and kind of worried to take to bad stretches.

    @linealover - The brake bite issue is generic to Palio and it's not due to the C-Drives, Wait till I source the Linea's Rotors & Pads.

    It was somewhere around 5K per piece for four including Alignment, Balancing and Fitting.

    Sure. I can test the ZLO. :)

    I remember the cost to be Rs. 4.8k per tyre.

  4. I have stock tyres on. My car have done 40k kms ,can still do about 2-3k. I went to a local tyre shop where I saw Bridgestone Turenza 195/65r/15 and a thought came to mind that I can go for a 65 instead of stock 60 that would increase GC a little bit:). I want that because I have ran into rocky roads few times and the metal plate below the car have been welded 2 times. I hate this. So do you guys recommend going for 195/65/15 instead of regular 195/60/15? Any Disadvantages?
    Plus after Reading this thread I am thinking of going with the same tyres i.e. GT3. Because I have had best experience with this set of tyres. My only preference is better grip. :D

    I belive the ground clearance upgrade kit is a better option.

  6. Hi Neilayy, do go for the 65 profiles without any concerns. I'm running on 195/65/15 PLC's since day one. The increase in GC that we get is good enough for the roads that I encounter in here. Also mrpresident2k is using the same 65's in his Linea.

    Do go for them :up

    I second the opinion of gurjinder. GC kit is the better option.

    Coming back to the original thread discussion on GT3, I got some interested feedback from the thread starter. Once a great great fan of GT3 has started telling me that GT3 is a crap after driving around 1000 kms with the C Drives on highway :D. I was surprised to hear that from linealover as he always keep saying good things about the GT3.

    GT3 is good, but C Drive is better, I am running it from last 18K KM, excellent tyre.

  9. Thank you Gurjinder!.Butl Its time to change the tyres so I just thought why dont I go for 65 so that be just a little bit better than 60. I am planning to get the GC kit installed but that will take some time.

    How in your experience are PLC's concerning Dry/wet grip and cornering ?
