    my friend faced the same issue on his apollo tyres.

    he visited three or more tyre shops in cochin but they were unable to identify the issue as the tyre pressure in 1 tyre was losing 6 to 8 psi in a week or more.

    then he went to a apollo autorized center and they found that a puncture which has occurred earlier has not sealed properly or reopened causing the issue.

    Looking to change tyres for m Linea. Looking to go in for Yoko AVS DB in 195/60 R15. Would be great if can get pointers on pricing and review of tyres. Thanks.

    Deepak, Yoko website shows AVS Db available, doesn't show where it is manufactured. Tyreonwheels does have AVS Db manufactured in Japan. Is it a safe bet to go with these guys?

    Finally got tyres changed with Yoko Earth1 as AVS Db isn't immediately available. Immediate change that I can notice is improvement in in-car acoustics. Drove about 200km with Earth1. All I can say is whatever Yoko is advertising about them, seems to be true.
