    Folks,

    After 3 years of Yoko A drive,I switched to Falken Sincera sn835 today
    http://falkentyre.in/sincera-sn835/

    I was considering Goodyear eagle F1 GSD3 or Yoko ES100..but got feedback they wear off easily..I would have still gone with Goodyear Eagle F1...but in 14 inch ,,those tires are small even at 195 section width..

    I thought of 15 inch but my rims are 14"..did'nt want to spend on new rims/alloys..

    FOr me eagle F1 GSD3 are the best looking tyres in India.. IMG_20150314_151100413.jpg IMG_20150314_151122876.jpg IMG_20150314_151122876.jpg

    Yoko A drives
    i)were very durable...they should easily last 50,000 k if maintained well..
    ii)Comfortable ride quality but little noisy..
    iii)Slight affinity to punctures
    iv) good in ghats & cornering
    v) very good dry grip
    vi) not so good wet grip..I always had to slow down a little

    Falken sincera sn835:
    i) Aggressive tread pattern
    ii) Bulky & fills wheel arch which was one of my main requirement
    iii) Driven 100kms and I see they are better than Yokos in terms of ride quality
    iv) Till now no noise even around 80-100kmph
    v) expectedtolast 60,000 kms easily

    Will update after 1000kms..pics below

    1000 km update:
    Pros:
    1.Plush ride in city conditions..rough road patches & potholes are taken care of with ease...
    2.Had a 400km long drive on highway...again a very comfortable & luxurious ride
    3.Road grip is excellent
    4.Road noise is very very minimal compared to Yoko A-drives..I hear only engine noise ven at high speeds
    5.Looks very good..
    6.Was raining for 10 kms on my highway drive..I still drove around 100-120kmph...wet grip was very good too

    Cons:
    1.I think there is a mileage drop of 1 km due to increased circumference...
    2. Speedo & Odo reading error...@165 kmph it shows around 150 may be
    3.Very close to wheel arch..though did not scrape with full load

    @Deepak : Yes,you see a slight drop in pick up for the first sec or so when you accelerate ina rush from 0 ...but the way these tyres behave at high speeds easily negates this :)..other thing with increased tyre height comes a slight increase in body roll in heavy curves..

    @vinodvisha: Rs20,250 for 5 tyres(4050 per tyre)..actually cheaper compared to most brands..high value for money..I was also told they last minimum 60k...those dots you see in pic on tyre as wear indicators..very intelligent...

    Hi puntostat: The tyre treads are very similar to the Goodyear Duraplus range and are much cheaper than them! Thank you for sharing this!

    Thanks for the info puntoSat.
    Tyres on my car would last for another couple of thousand kms after which I would consider these tyres. :)
    Keep us updated with your experiences on crunching more and more miles on these shoes.

    Is the Falcon trade pattern similar to Bridgestone ER 60?
