    One of our members got Yokohama S-drives here in Hyderabad for Rs.5800 /- a piece for his new 90HP sport.

    I am currently running on the same tyres and my next set would be the same. 16k run so far and I am pretty impressed with them in terms of overall grip and braking. Only once did I (actually the tyre guy) noticed a screw pierced through the grooves on one of the tyres. Removed the screw and fixed the puncture. This was 5k kms back when I was getting the wheel rotation, balancing and alignment done.

    The price differs from dealer to dealer. I wouldn't recommend changing the price in this thread. Thats the best price our member got and I haven't heard from anyone else whom I know and are using S drives to pay less than 6k.

    I donot have any experience with Nankang and hence I cannot comment. The first set that I used for my Punto were Yokohama ES100 195/60 R14 and the next set are S-drives. I can only give my views on these both.

    Maxxis is good but gets hell noisy after 20k run.Am currently running on them and switching over to some other option sooner. Maxxis is again available for sale in Indian market and cost is 4100-4200 approx in Delhi.

    Of the bunch I would say MA-Z1 any day, but keep in mind these are hard compound and the tyre noise is notoriously high and will be unbearable after 8k kms, plus getting a set is not easy...

    Share more info on what are you looking for? Apart from the size... longevity, performance, tyre noise, sidewall strength, ride comfort..

    I'm using maxxis but not the one you have on your photo. I can say that the grip is just amazing but noise is horrible. I think I've done 20 k on it now and I can feel the road in the steering wheel it's very noisy. If you are ok then pick it or else stay away.
    Nankang is also hard but is known to be quieter. You May want to check with tfian nkrishna. He is running on it and has good opinion
