    Any feedback on Yokohama A drive, C drive or S drive?

    I used to maintain 32psi until recently I reduced it to 30psi and tried. Now the tyre seems to be doing the duty right. With increased pressure, Yokohama C drive neither feels like a comfort Tyre nor does it give you confidence to take the corners at high speeds.

    However, the next set of tyres I would opt for shall surely be performance oriented and not comfort oriented :D

  3. I have driven my Palio on GT3s. Good grip and handling, but high noise. Presently, i have Michelin Energy XM2 on my GP, and it does an excellent job in terms of grip and noise. Nice tyres.

    Talking of soft sidewalls and cornering.
    Soft side walls on higher side profile tyres will have a higher impact on cornering than soft sidewalls on lower profile tyres. Eg: the Michelin XM2 195/55/R15(if there is one) will be better than XM2 195/60/R15 when it comes to sidewall flexing during cornering.

    Went to Millivision today to get rotation and alignment done. Checked with Govind and he does have 195/60 R15 XM2 in stock. Priced at Rs. 5720 per tyre.

    S drives do not come in 195/60/15,they are available in205/55/15
    I would choose C drives over A drives.

    A-drives are good budget friendly no-nonsense tyres. I have them on the Palio currently and they've been good.

    ^^ That is true. Govind did tell me that the XM2s are a replacement for the PLCs, where the sidewall issues have been addressed. Given that he deals in tyres, I trust the info. he shared.

  9. Is it, PLC is relatively newer tires XM2 is older that is what Cheery tire guy told me.
