    sorry for being off topic. i came across a chinese tyre company tri-ace which sold 195/65r15 for 2600rs each. how good (or bad) are these. as no one is buying my stock tyres i do not want to spend 5k for a new tyre and no getting anything for the old ones. i simply cannot bare the tyre noise of the stock goodyear. pls help.

    You might have to bear a lot more with these Chinese tyres.:p

    Only the Kenda ( Chinese or Taiwanese) brand of tyres seem a somewhat better alternative to the leading tyre manufacturers. But i will stay 2km away from them too.

  5. Ravi,

    How good is yokohoma C drive, any pros and cons of this tyre?

    The difference I felt (compared to OE Bridgestone), Yoko C Drive is very comfortable, and minimal noise.
    I heard braking is good, but with my limited experience I can't confirm that.
  7. Of late, I've read many positive and reassuring reviews on Maxxis Victra MA-Z. This tire puts many reputed tires to shame. For the record, Maxxis is a Taiwanese tire manufacturing firm.

    Maxxis have multi-nation presence and are considered good.

    meant i wasnt sure of Kenda's origins, whether its Chinese or Taiwanese.

    Hey chethansgangoor,

    The 195/60/R15 rubber is good in Michelin Primary LC, Yoko DB, & Yoko C Drive... i have been using Good Year GT3 stock are not recommended hard tyres grippy but noisey and hard on bumpy roads, Michelin are known for their softness & but are short in life, Yokos are pretty much good in grip softness and life. If you want to stick to 195/60/R15 rubber i would suggest to opt for Yoko DB VFM.
  10. Thanks Rizzou, i tried searching Yoko site, displays a error. Do you have a link to see the Yoko DB? and how much is the price?
