  2. Finally went for Yoko C drives, i dont know whether the tyre shop guys have inflated the tyres with proper PSI, i found it a little harder over bumps. Other than that grip levels are just amazing compared to stock tyres and also the noise is very less.

    Bridgestone are the best tyres in my opinion. Medium compound with good life. Precisely what users like us need.

    Actually amogh, its opposite. Bridgestone is one of the worst tyres in market.
    For comfort - Michelin and overall Yoko are better tyres.
    Even Apollo Accerelere is decent tyre compared to BS.

    Wow !! That is some news. None of the tyre shops here in Pune recommended me Michelin. Everybody asked me to go for Bridgestone !!
    And I wasn't surprised because I had Michelin's on the Octavia. With a lot of expressway runs, the tyres had to be replaced in 8k kms. Shifted to Bridgestone and the tyres lasted for a good 27k kms.

    Damn !! Some confusion out there. I think I am going to go for different brand on each wheel. Michelin and Yoko in the front. Bridgestone and Apollo at the rear. :lol

    Hey amogh you missed out the spare wheel ..You still can opt for one more brand :mrgreen: ..LOL ..ok let's be serious ...Michelin gives a comfortable ride, but many are under the opinion that the life is less which I feel is true. Even my personal preference was Bridgestone which I had used earlier and it did last long. But heard that BS is not having that quality which they had earlier. I think Yokohama would be a wise choice (Got this advise from experts..) and it gives good road grip and better life too.

    Though Bridgestone makes noise , it last long. This I have heard from allmost all tyre shops that I went. I prefere to use the current one (bridgstone) and prefer to shift to yokohama or mechline next time. I want to really feel the difference myself.
