    Holy cow, thats lot of wear on the tyre. Its on the verge of going bald. You definitely need to change the tyres. But how did the tyres lose the tread so early? Has this been communicated to the FASS or the tyre OEM?

    Those tyres are too risky for high speed highway drives :wideyed:

    GY GT3 is hard compund tire,runs well till 9K Kms after that the tire noise is unbearable,during my ownership with these tires experienced many punctures too.During night time drive at low speeds too had a rear left tire blast.Very cheap tires.

    Used Yoko AVS DB, Yoko Earth1, Bridgestone MY02.Yoko AVS DB(6400INr) are superb tires with less tire noise,nice grip in dry and wet both.Earth1 is purely for our conditions,with more tire noise.Currently using Kenda Komet(3000INR), till now happy with these tires with overall running of 11K Kms.

    @Ganges correction GY GT3 is a soft component tyre. on the contrary this would be my 2nd set of GT3 on my Punto run 73K kms and I've got it on my Palio as well and have done about 25K.
    I can agree to the tyre noise and honestly that isn't that annoying but honestly you cannot rate is as a "Cheap Tire". The Ride quality is good, lasts long,decent road grip both on wet/dry and cost wise it is a good value for money.
    I am sure you might not totally agree but I hope someone in this forum will..:bored:

    Agrrement is my experience and kind of satisfaction i had.
    Tire noise :- No tire is noise free,Yoko AVS DB is not silent tire at the same time silent too when compared with GT3.i didnt opted for GT3 ,because i really had bad experiences with GY GT3.The tire blast at low speeds @60Kmph.its a very good long runner tire, with puncturess too i retained it for more than 50K Kms.

    @Ganges was bridgestone my02 was looking broader than yoko earth1?
    Which one u will vote for between these 2?

    And if possible more light on Kenda komet, bcoz it looks like half the price of yoko or bridgestone and if we are getting same quality, y not Kenda?

    Bridgestone MY02 on any day,can also be confirmed by @DRIV3R :) .Comfor tires,low noise can compare with Yoko AVS DB.These are costly and the other problem is the availability.i didnt observed so keenly for the broadness between Yoko Earth1 and MY02, there should not be any problem with the broadness of My02.These are soft compund tires,so you can expect some body roll too.
    kenda komet i'm using is the older hence the price is less,the current version of Kenda is Komet CR23 which is 4K INR i guess.my next change will be Kenda for sure,already 11K Kms in three months, wait for another 3 months will post my experience.Eventhough if it lasts long for 30K Kms,i'm happy customer.
