    @ shashanknathani- Thanks for the addition. You increased my confusion more ;), I was already juggling between Yoko Earth 1, Apollo Acelere and Alnac 4G :banghead:

    I think I will need to decide on Yoko Earth 1 :happy:, just waiting for the existing Alloy 16" to be sold and bought new set of 15"

    I would suggest go in for something else other than apollo, having a bad experience. Just driven 17K and the side wall of both the rear tyres are already leaking air

    Thanks 'pv_krish'- then the option remains only 'Yoko Earth 1'.

    Thanks for your reply 'Ganges'- you mean Yokohama V550 AVS DB 95V? Will it be suitable for bad roads as well? Seems it has softer side walls :confused:!
    Jusy fyi- I drive to Bihar (Samastipur) every year via MP (where road doesn't exist), however this year (next month's) trip would below coastal route- Bangalore- Tirupati- Vijayawada- Vishakhapatnam- Bhubaneswar- Bhadrak- Jamshedpur- Samastipur. Hope it is better from NH7 road via MP.

    Based on the advise from Mr. Ravi and other gurus on TFI and TBHP, the coastal road condition should be good. Finger crossed :)

    Yes. Yoko AVS Db.I have driven a lot on bad roads as well. Why do you think softside walls are not good on bad roads? Please remove that thought. I have driven 50k kms on BS MY02 and AVS DB, both performed very well.Go Blindly for AVS DB if vitamn M permits.You will enjoy your long drive.

    Costal Road conditition is butter smooth till Balasore. I believe you are going to take NH5 ( not the NH60 to reach Jamshedpur). NH60 one side is blocked due to road repair.

    YOKO AVS DB is good and suitable for bad road too ( lots of or TFIan's and friends are using). If you consider silent and comfortable tyre you can check Michelin P3ST too ( drove many bad road too)- 17500 Km exp in Punto and 2750 in Linea ( running) :).

    Friends,
    My Good year Gt3 are giving steering wobbling issues lately. After lot of combinations, I am trying to source 2 front used tires.
    Today, i found Bridgestone My02 used for 15000 kms for good price. Thinking to replace current Gt3 with these used tires.
    Any suggestions

    Put all 4 tyres of same make/models. Putting 2 GT3 and 2 MY02, should be avoided.

    Thank you 'BoseSuman'
    Anything better than MP roads would be a great relief :)

    Yes, most likely NH5. However there is another road AH1/NH2- not sure which one is the best :confused:. I don't mind driving 100Kms add extra for better roads :)

    If anyone can throw some light on these three road condition would be grreat.
    1. AH1/NH2
    2. NH60
    3. NH5

    Thanks in advance.
