    @nkrishnap hoping to meet you next weekend at Vecto, post which I shall opt for Yokohama C drives in exchange with GT3.

    I was inclined to BS MY02, but most of the guys recommend me to go for Yokohama C drive as its tried and tested.

    Thanks a lot for your feedback guys :thumbup:

    Firstly I would like to thank everyone on TFI for their valuable suggestions on the bumpy ride issue I had on my car.

    A big thanks to @nkrishnap and referring me to the right guy Nitin from Sai Iyengar tyres Bannerghatta road.

    Got Yokohama C drive 195/60/R15 on exchange with GT3.

    Total damages - Rs. 11,600 /-

    Bumpy ride on flat surfaces is a past now. Haven't driven the car yet as I am enjoying the drive sitting at the back seat for now :)

    So, I guess the culprit was Goodyear GT3.

    Am happy with the ride quality now. More miles to munch with Paula my babe :thumbup:

  3. What is the c drive priced at? ? Btw give a proper review of your tyre, so that other tfians can benefit..
    Enjoy your ride..

    @wolverine_arnab am yet to drive my car and its too early for me to review the tyres. They are just 5 kms done :D

    But, the comfort is very much noticeable. I shall post the reviews soon after I get hands on with these tyres.

    Thanks.

    @Ganges I exchanged my GT3 for Yokohama C drive. In case anyone has that set of wheels I don't mind putting them on my car and testing it :)

    @Mohankv The treads aren't that deep (totally my feeling, I am not a tyre expert).

    The tyres are super silent, imagine transition from GT3 to Yokohama C drive. Hope these tyres remain silent on long run too. The tyres don't disappoint you on grip too.

    Michelin PLC would be even more better man, coz they have softer sidewalls than Yokohama C drives !!!

    Let the pics do the talking.

  10. The treads look better than apollo accelere.
    Btw how many kms you have done with the gt3? And what was the buy back value and new tyre price?
